    I tried patching the JAP version of Pokemon Battle with regionfrii and when it started up it asked if i wanted to commence a wii system update. I can't imagine patching a US system with a jap game could be a good thing, but has anyone tried it?

    Yeah, I wouldn't do it. It's most likely a firmware update to get their Wifi Connection data on the Wii to allow for online gaming.

    If a PAL wii gets updated to the JAP firmware, it's possible that it will only boot JAP games. Which is a good thing if you want to boot JAP and US games on yuor PAL wii and you could then download JAP VC games from the jap VC store. Try it at your own risk. The update may actually fail because it could check your Wii's region and refuse to update it.

    my PAL wii updated itself when i inserted Elebits

    now i tried to insert fruit fall and the game showed up in the disc channel so the upgarde doesnt change the overall region of your wii

    It would be interesting if someone tried this, doesn't matter if you have a US or PAL Wii.

    xiaNaix at WiiNewz tried it with his Wiikey on a US console and it worked flawlessly.
    since the wiikey has inbuilt regio-free it doesn´t need patch.

    OK I went ahead and tested it on the wiikey, it asked to update: i pressed OK and it updated fine.

    Then i went to start the game but it only gave black screen [​IMG]
