Hello chaps and chapesses I'll be blunt. I have a PAL wii, which I have region changed completely to an NTSC one (bah... 50hz VC games. Bollocks.) I have a wiikey, and it seems to be working ALOT BETTER now with ntsc firmware for some reason. My only real issue on the nintendo side of things is the nintendo store doesn't work. It just sends me in a circle constantly going on about my old UK account. No big problem there if that can't be fixed. What I'm really here for, is a bit of an update, and some advice on what's good to install. I have homebrew channel, latest waninkoko mios, cios, and his 4.0 update. I have an excellent (albeit sometimes glitchy) media player 4.0 installed, and I just unsuccessfully attempted to use startpatch (it did everything, bar unlock region locked channels. boo.) If you guys can tell me anything I really should try out (I'm far from a noob, just too many hacking/homebrew scenes, plus a pretty active life to lead). If you can help me, I'll be more than appreciative. My last wee problem is related to games I have tried that just black screen when I start em. (WII PLAY, HOTD OVERKILL, DQ SWORDS AND TALES OF SYMPHONIA). I'm suspecting that the ripper just removed all the update files, as I had problems when using the starfall update blocker and wiikey one previously, where games wouldn't work because the update was never applied. Or am I just missing something like an ios here and there? Each game works fine through geckoOS7. I don't mean to dangle a carrot, but I'll help anyone out with demonoid invites and anyone who gives me a definitive awesome answer I'll help out with a blackcats one. Thanks for looking.
