    Hi, I was wondering if anyone could help me with accessing the japanese wii shop on an american wii so i can download japanese only virtual console games. I have a very old wii (bought within 1 year of its release and it has the gamecube slots on it). The wii menu is 4.3u and the disk reader doesn't work if that changes anything. I have already downloaded the Homebrew channel and bootmii and the any region changer but when i try to use the any region changer i get Error! ES_OpenTitleContent (ret=-1026). I was wondering what else i need to download. I tried to get DOP-Mii for IOS36 v1042 but i couldn't find a link that worked. I am also wondering what happens to already downloaded games from the american wii shop channel. If i would lose is there any way i can back them up and get them back after i download the japanese games?

    You need to go into the wii shop, delete your shop account, then region change the wii to jap.
