    Man you're behind. If you installed out of region games you couldn't launch them and the Wii U would display a message about the disk you were trying to play was an out of region game and nothing would happen.

    You don't even need to boot iosuhax every time you want to play. Just use wupclient to install regionhax, it enables region free permanently.

    im afraid of doing this coz what if the new zelda requires a system update. it could brick your wii if you play around with settings

    The difference is though, it could be changed back quite easily to the way it was before, if it was ever a problem. The Regionfreehax is a better solution I think, it is only a matter of changing 119 back to 4 in the sys_prod.xml file to put it back and upload the new configuration. to your WiiU with wupclient.

    When a person says "I'm afraid of doing this," avoid promoting options that carry more risk. As an example, think about what happens if the person's default xml editor saves .xml files in unicode. Unlikely, but possible. On the other hand, if he loads the wrong fw.img, the WiiU will just tell him that the game can't run.
