    Dear All,

    I desperately need your help.
    I apologise for being a noob and not being to find enough information on my own, and I would really appreciate if you can help me out with my Wii.

    First of all here's the status of my Wii.

    - Jap Wii (firmware unknown, have not played for about a year)
    - Wiikey 1 installed
    - No Homebrew Channel
    - Semi-bricked (unable to enter settings menu, have duplicate channels)

    I would like to do the following things:

    - Change it to US Region (so that I can play NTSC/U games and for English menus)
    - Update to 3.2U
    - Install Starfall (so I can play games from all regions)
    - Install Homebrew Channel

    Can you guys kindly teach me the various steps and applications needed to update my wii so that I will be able to play US region games?

    Thank you very much!

    I really appreciate it!

    Do I have to have the Japanese version of Twilight Princess in order for all these to work?

    Or is there any other way I can go about doing all these?

    Would a US version be fine?

    I'm going to shamelessly point you to this guide for changing your regioni:
    [​IMG] note that it's slightly outdated though.

    PS. you have a wiikey, so any region of Twilight Princess will work as long as the wiikey is in region free mode. (I did mine with an NTSC-U (US) copy)
