Hi,

if I use this app to change my wii's region, is my wii for ALL INTENTS AND PURPOSES a US wii? ie can I update from a US game? is there anything in hardware/firmware which still says 'jap wii' or is it fully 100% a US wii? because if it is I want to change!

thanks!

It will be 100% US if you do it right
DO NOT make any mistake or your wii may be done for
Do some very good research before changing anything with the ARC
It is best that you find a tutorial here or on youtube

Hi there! I believe you have been wanting to convert your Wii from Jap to USA since a long time (I remember reading your posts back in the Jap Wii thread). I was also in the same boat as you and I also advised you against doing it back then. But now I changed my mind and I have successfully converted my Jap Wii from NTSC-J to NTSC-U using AnyRegionChanger and it looks like it is definitely a US Wii now! I even installed preloader on it and it works fine.

PS: DO NOT UPDATE to 4.0! Especially if you don't have cIOS249 installed!

I wonder why it updated to 4.0J? When you changed from NTSC-J to PAL using ARC, did you also change the shop channel code and the language setting to the appropriate values?

    @RichardTheKing Thank you so much for pointing out that dialog bug!! I never noticed it while finishing up these new boss fights..

    And that gap on that level should be close enough to jump if you run? I might have to lower that platform a bit maybe?
