    I have searched around but couldn't find a definite answer yet.

    I'm currently on the (PAL) version of the Wii Shop. My Wii is 4.1E.

    I want to change it to the US region.

    My question is, if I do this will I be able to change it back? Now 4.2 update is around, not sure if things have changed. Also, when I do this, do you only lose content you have downloaded via the shop only or you lose things you have installed via WAD installer?

    The last thing is, Everybody Votes Channel and Mii Contest Channel. Will you lose your data for the votes channel and not be able to use the contest channel? If so, can't I just download the WADs for them and install them like that?


    Any help is appreciated!!

    you must delete your current account before changing regions. The same when you change it back, so you will loose any points or record of actually paying for anything (if you actually do pay for anything from the store)

    anyway, after deleting your account, change the region with Any Region Changer then go back into the shop channel. You *might* have to go back into your wii connect 24 settings again and do the EULA again (but iirc that's also an option in ARC...)
