I recently got a JAP wii converted to US and also modded with a (afaik) d2ckey with homebrew channel and currently at 3.2u. I tried to play brawl in it but it asked for an updated which I accepted. after the update I recieve dual channels. but the wii setting still work, my knowledge with the wii is very minimal so I tried to search on how to fix it. So later im planning to buy an SD card to fix it and maybe add more things with it. So if my unit is converted to US does that mean that my region is NTSC? and do I need hombrew apps to be able to play PAL games? If I play new games and it ask for updates should I block it? I read that there are apps around that blocks updates. Basically my concern is what apps/stuffs should I put in my Wii so that I can play games without having any problems, and what other things should I learn to prevent problems with it. ATM my wii is working without a problem, but I wanted to learn the different things about it, currently Im afraid to do anything with it which sucks. Im reading different articles to help me but most of the words they use are unfamiliar to me like WADS and IOS and other stuff. Thanks for those who can help.
