    Hi everyone!

    I have a 4.3U Wii and would like to change the Region to Japan (4.3J) I used ARC Mod 1.1b Offline on the Homebrew channel to do this, but even when I change the Area, Game, and System Menu setting to Japan, Shop Country Code to 1, and the language to Japanese, it still gives me the “WARNING! Area/SysMenu MISMATCH!” Highlighted in red.

    I did it anyways and got a Semi Brick. All I had to do was undo my steps to get rid of the Semi. But ARC won’t let me change my region, even though I’m changing the Area Setting AND the System Menu setting.

    Side Note - When I only change my Area Setting to Japan, it gives the warning. When I change ONLY my System Menu setting, it remains the same, and does not cause any Brick.

    Can anyone tell me how to Region change this?
