    Just FYI I tried for fun to change product_area from 2 (US) to 4 (EU) and it bricked my Rednand. I think it's because the US Firmware doesn't have european languages, only US (i can see US_French, US_English but not EU_French, etc)....

    I take it if we want to do this for sysnand we need FIX94's fw.img first?

    I MIGHT look into this at some point over the next week but I really cba to make a rednand for it. Call me lazy but meh!

    strange, JPN, KOR and TWN worked on my tests. Just was not able to launch any application after setting another game_region

    To be safe, always add you game region number to the region you want test (if you want EU + US, put 6 / if you want EU + US + JAP put 7, etc).

    But you should just put 119 like in my post, and ALL will be unlocked ;)

    If you REALLY REALLY want do this on sysnand, yep, same instructions than in the post but with the Wupserver fw.img file

    If you do that, say me the result here please

    I thought it would be my time to make my hands a bit durty. And fact is : Applying this patch on sysNAND works perfectely! No more redNAND required to launch foreign titles! Pfiou :3
    Thanks once again for the tip, much appreciated.

    On my NTSC WiiU they are

    Code:
    <5ghz_country_code type="string" length="4" access="710">Q2</5ghz_country_code>
      <5ghz_country_code_revision type="unsignedByte" length="1" access="710">7</5ghz_country_code_revision>
    
    I would advise doing tests on rednand to see if you can get a gamepad of a different region to work on it though.

    Cannot stress enough that this needs testing on redNAND before you try it on sysNAND.

    I dont recommand to test that btw. If by mistake you change region on your gamepad, i dunno if you will be able to go back. Investigations need to be done !

    Thats why a redNAND test is recommended. If you screw up redNAND you can just copy your redNAND backup back to your SD Card after. No issues

    This region free patch is working fine on my sigpatched sysNAND.
    Thanks.

    Well except that the manuals don't work.
