    Hey all.
    My friend has a Wii 4.1U and her TV is compatible with just PAL systems.
    So the Wii has no colors. On the screen it's just a grayscale image.
    I was wondering if I installed 4.1E, would the problem be fixed or does he need new hardware in his Wii?
    And if it does need just 4.1E, how do I do it... By WAD installation or what? Will all the data be erased?

    Does this permanently change the region?
    Meaning if I update the Wii will it still keep this new region?

    in the GAME
    why bother permanently doing that??

    why not just use SneeK/Uneek(di) ?


    (alter nand dumps as you choose , even region change if you like, without risking your Wii)

    yes dop-mii can be used I've used it on sneek and uneek. Use normal ARC to change the region settings of the setting.txt and save then use dop-mii to install system menu

    so dop-mii alone doesn't handle the setting.txt? that's weird... its not like the dop-mii team to offer partial installation of anything, especially when there is some brick potential

    It detects what region your setting.txt is and sets the region you only change the firmware version e.g. 3.2-4.2 I think it will also install the needed system menu IOS if correct version isn't installed

    This looks simple. You think my friend'll be able to play with colors from now on?
    Cause I don't want an imitation of a region change. I want the actual thing [​IMG]

    Yes it is permanent.

    @xflak
    Dop-mii does not change the setting.txt and sysconf settings, AFAIK, it only install ios and SM.
