    since the scene for the Wii is growing and they are getting better...

    what about hacking the wii games?
    Since we are getting a chance of removing stuff from wii ISO`s, there has to be a way to hack more on the ISO`s...

    maybe a safer way to change the region of the game? A 100 % way of changing the region... I know that we have the RegionFrii and other programs, but they dont always work....... and I am sure that there are more of you out there that agree with me that it sux...


    just a tought

    I don't think 100% region free will arise from hacking the games. The firmware (which AFAIK hasn't really been hacked) will be the thing to change.

    I did some work when the extraction util was first released:

    webyugioh also ripped a bunch of videos from games.
    Right now unsigned commercial stuff can not be run though so it was fairly pointless.

    "Since we are getting a chance of removing stuff from wii ISO`s"
    It is not exactly removal but replacement of hard to compress otherwise unread sectors, if you meant extraction ignore me.

    Region free via hacking. I am with arctic_flame in that firmware is the place to look here, in theory it could be done on an iso by iso basis (the current theory is that is a check in addition to the basic firmware/region check against the start of the iso) but it could get fairly tricky if some custom implementations occurred.

    Slightly related side-note: The Wii firmware has been dumped and looked at. However, it's encrypted, and no one has had the time/reverse-engineering skills/computing power to decrypt it.
