    I have used wii, firmware version 3.5K with drivekey.

    Drivekey option setting is not works in Korean firmware even change region to USA.

    So i have tried downgrade to 3.2U by costom IOS downgrader 1.2.

    (I know about anyregion changer but it doesn't works to my system. It saids "couldn't find empty IOS slot")

    cIOS downgrader was work well...download and installing....BUT at last, the firmware installation is failed!!!

    Then, i restart wii and i can see messages in English and pressed A button.

    However, the channel menu doesn't show. No more progress, just black screen...I suppose changed menu system to USA but firmware is Korean...mismatched.

    So...what am i suppose to do? How can i recover it...throw to the trash?

    Help me please....or any comment me.

    since you have a modchip you can try runiing an autoboot disc with the any region changer on it.
    just an idea though

    //ddp127 - I never heard about them.
    could you tell me more?

    //tj_cool - thx for ur reply. i'll try it.... first, i must make an autoboot disc(seaching google how to make it).
    But, any region changer(for korean mod05) doesn't work, the message "couldn't find empty IOS slot" has been shown.
    do u know what does it mean?

    details about using any region changer mod05 with wad(full version)

    - i don't have homebrew channel. so i put the boot.dol file of any region changer to root of SD card.
    - play Zelda(JPN) with hacked save file(beta1).
    - any region changer is started.
    - change region(system menu 3.2U) to USA and go
    - ED--blah blah message pass so fast and repeated.
    - and last message has been shown. couldn't find empty IOS slot [​IMG]
