ok so i have trying to get brawl to work on my console these few days and i have been asking around shops getting mixed anwsers. so let me get things straight first. my specs: Wii(JAP) - 3.1J WiiKey - 1.9G Smash Brawl (US) - 7.xxgb .iso file, used regionfrii to change to JAP, then imgburn with layerbreak 2xxxxx(forgot the number), and used a memorex DVD+R DL at x2.4 (i have not used trucha signer on the iso) when i try to run brawl it asks me to update, being a JAP machine i shouldnt right? cus JAP + US = brick. so i duno if i burned successfully or not. im guessing its because the US ver contains 3.2U but i am running 3.1j? so i went out to some shops to ask for advice, and basically get 3 sets of responses. 1. i will be able to run retail US ver on my current specs no problem 2. if i change my chip to D2C, i will be able to run retail no problem 3. because my wii is JAP there is no way in hell i will be able to run a US brawl, retail or backup (i have seen SSBB(JAP) work on a US wii, so there shouldnt be any reason for it not to work the other way around right?) so i duno who i should believe. and btw, i am located in hong kong, so i dont think the people here know about applications like reginfrii or trucha signer. i have tried running DVD5 JAP brawl, it prompts and update and works normally for a DVD5(freezes on SSE). SMG(US) does not work. it doesnt prompt an update and when i run it the screen just turns black and nothing happens. i reboot and my wii is fine. same thing goes for budokai tenkaichi 3(US). i have semi bricked my wii before with SMG(US), but i fixed this with a wiifit(JAP). when my wii was semibricked from SMG, i got the 001 error msg. but when i unbricked it with wiifit, i just get a black screen. when i run regionfrii there is almost no loading time and i get "mismatched code". is that supposed to happen? i have a pretty low knowledge about patching other than regionfrii.. so i dont know how stuff like wbb or language patching works. and thats pretty much everything ive tried. what should i do to get a US version of brawl to work? retail/backup doesnt matter thanks in advance!!!!
