    You can change the region to U/E/J but on 3.4/4.0/4.1

    Since 3.5K has boot2v4, you can't downgrade to 3.2.

    if you mean stock 3.5K thats probably true, if it was a 3.3K and you did a nintendo update, there are ways you can region change and downgrade, using all the tools available now.

    You can change the setings of video and games with ARC and install manually the SysMenu.wad for 4.0, but this is only a theory and you would need bootmii to test this out, in other words, there is no way to find this out, without a major risk of FULL brick...!!! [​IMG]

    By using Wad Manager, AnyRegion Changer, Trucha Bug Restorer, NUS Downloader, and AnyTitle Deleter, you can change 3.5K to 3.4/4.0/4.1 E/U/J easily.

    Actually, at least two 3.5K wiis have successfully changed to 3.4E/U.

    Yep. Factory 3.5K.

    There are a lot of these wiis in China market, and one member of a Chinese forum have done this by following the Chinese instruction I made in that forum.

    1. Use BannerBomb and HackMii Installer to Install HBC
    2. Install IOS16-64-v257.wad, IOS36-64-v3094.wad, IOS50-64-v4889, and LU64Fix.wad.
    3. Use Firmware Downgrader v1.11 to select 3.4/4.0 J/U/E.
    4. Upgrade through WiFi.
    5. Use Trucha Bug Restorer to patch IOS36 and install any reversion of cIOS above rev11 if you don't like rev11.
    6. Done!!

    If you have had problem in installing HBC, you could start from step 2 by BannerBomb to the end then install HBC after all by wad or HackMii Installer.

    Use bannerbomb to boot those apps.
