    Some games' channel banner will not show if its region is different from Wii System.
    e.g. Made in Ore(WarioWare D.I.Y. JPN Ver.)'s banner will not show in USA region.
    Any solution to fix this problem? Thanks !! (Sorry for my English.)

    Yes, there is a way to fix the problem. I did this with Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney (JP Version).

    Using the U8 Tool by Howard C, unpack the 00000000.app and unpack the banner.bin file.

    Using a Hex Editor (I recommend Hex Workshop), open the "banner.brlyt" file, located in the "blyt" folder.

    In the Hex Editor, search for "JPN" and replace the result with "ENG".

    Then pack the WAD.

    That should fix the problem if playing the WAD on a US or EU Wii.
