    is there any decent guides about region changing a korean wii around, i've had a quick look but cant find any,

    i know 4.2 bricks the wii's but im not sure why, is it ios70, if so do i just update to 4.1 with SM wad and ios wads bar ios70 then install new regions channels with wads too?

    There is some code in IOS70 that bricks these Wii's if they are region changed and updated to 4.2
    So if you'd install the IOS70 of cIOSCORP (which is actually IOS60) instead of the normal one, it won't brick when updating afterwards.

    Anyway, there are quite some region changers around
    I believe there's one from qkmod and one from da_letter_a



    Of course, it would be even easier to just softmod it and make it region free [​IMG]

    You can install any (working) IOS70 on a Korean Wii

    Just not region changed ones [​IMG]
