I have searched through a few pages, and either I am searching the wrong phrases, or I just give up before the 10th page of results...

I have a 4.2E PAL Wii, modded with the great pack to mod any Wii 4.3 and below. I am trying to change the Wii to 4.2U, or at least some NTSC firmware version, but when loading AnyRegionChanger I get the * Error! ES_OpenTitleContent (ret = -1026) error, which says to do this to fix it:
Then you probably don't have a IOS with the Signing bug, and you should use the Trucha Bug Restorer in order to enable the features of AnyRegion Changer.

With this not being a huge deal or needed much any more, and it being deleted from the complete softmod site, anyone offer up another suggestion?

I have tried some of the other mods, but they give me other errors. I am stuck on this, and I'd really like to get this changed, it wouldn't be a big issue because I can change the region the games load as, but it is b/w and doesn't fit on my NTSC screen.

I did search, for a long time, please don't get angry if it was offered right away, I could of been searching the wrong phrases.

If this has been offered, and you found it, just give me the phrase you used, I'll find it myself, haha.

Thanks!

Do u have a NAND backup cause this app can potentially Brick ur Wii!?

Also Install IOS236 (Latest version) that may help considering... it preloaded with all the necessary patches 2 run the app!!

Yes, I have a NAND back up. It does have IOS236 installed. I'll try giving it another install, maybe it wasn't the latest version.

Is there anything for just changing the output from PAL to NTSC tv? I don't necessarily need to change the region, just need to be able to view it on an NTSC tv, as that conversion is horrible which some of you may know.

Try to force video mode before. I don't know which loader you use, but there must be a "Force PAL/NTSC video mode".

On my personal Wii I usually play from discs(I have a chip in it), so this Wii was possibly going to be the same, so if I use a loader on this Wii that supports disc play, and force the video mode, will that change everything on the Wii? Even the System Menu? Or just that loader and games loaded from it?

its probably because you have cIOS249 rev20. change that to cIOS249 rev17 and you will be all set. its a risky procedure, but for some reason rev20 does not have es_identify enabled. priiloader will fail on installation as well. i have always stuck with 17 in 249, and rev20 in slot 250 and 248 in case i need them.

but i am sure going to rev17 will fix your problem. just don't delete the current one, reinstall 17 over top and it will overwrite your current cios249.

edit: post 1000 yay!

    Yeah back in my late teens I used to mow about 10 lawns every two weeks for $35 a yard. It was stupid big yards I knew where paying a lot more than that to lawn care companies in a some what up tier gated community a few blocks from the area I lived. Was great getting $700 a month with no bills at the time and good excercise too, now I have bills so I never have any money to buy things.
