    Hey guys,

    I've tried searching, but I can't find a straight answer. It seems people say not to use anyregion to update, but I found this site with a method here http://www.yafaze.com/wii/4.0updateguide.html

    I know method 2 says don't do it on a JP wii, but what about method 1?

    Also, when I install the WAD and go to update like normal, do I have to turn off any options in my Wiikey?

    Thank,
    Seitetsu

    You can use method 1 but not 2 as wanin's updater does not download the JPN firmware for the Wii.
