    Regionhax Installer 1.0

    A very simple script to make your Wii U region free.

    Informations :
    You don't need this anymore if you are using REDNAND or booting your FW.img everytime you play. IOSUHAX include region free since 20-nov-2016, compile a new fw.img from now on.


    Included in the tool :
    - Modified wupclient.py
    - A tool to find your Wii U IP adress (windows only).
    - You will be able to see the what the script did, just open sys_prod.xml (the new one) and sys_prod.xml.bak (the one you had).

    IMPORTANT : You need to reboot you Wii U if you used haxchi installer just before (or just after).

    What do you need ? :
    - Install Python 2.7 (only support 2.7 atm).
    - A Wii U 5.5.1 EUR/JAP/USA
    - fw.img (sysnand or rednand) on the root of your SD card and HBL and CFW Booter.
    - Boot your fw.img
    - Extract regionhax_installer_v1.0.zip in a folder.
    - Doubleclick regionhax_installer_v1.0.py
    - Follow instructions
    - One program is closed, reboot your Wii U.


    Notes :
    Be very careful the the region you select, it has to be your CONSOLE region.
    I am not responsible if you Wii U Brick. I did many test to make sure this script is safe.
    DO NOT MODIFY THE SCRIPT

    Reasons for possible brick :
    - Your wifi connexion or your PC crash during file upload (0.1s)
    - You modify my script for fun..

    The other one is to install haxchi, this one will only install regionhax. I think its better to make 2 different script because you need to run this one only once.

    Yeah its pretty easy, but first i wanted to make sure its 100% brick safe. So i tested couple times until im sure ^^ that's why i didnt publish before.
    Edit : Just realized i made mistake in the name of the .zip to download... Nothing bad :P

    Is this permanent? or does it need to be loaded everytime you power on your console?

    Works like a charm! Thanks a lot!

    Any game from Japan, USA, Europe, China, Korea or Taiwan. (I doubt someone has tried installing games from China, Korea or Taiwan, actually.)

    It's permanent.

    how do I get fw.img and CFW Booter. You're VERY vague in your steps. Not "noob friendly" at all

    I had the same issue on my second wiiu.
    The problem was that I entered the wrong IP address.

    Double check your wiiu's IP address.
    Use the tool that's supplied to you in the OP.

    Edit: make sure you also launch your CFWBOOTER via homebrew launcher too before trying to play games. I also had to do this for some of my out of region games.
