    I just got my Japanese Wii which is equipped with the D2CKey .

    When i play a NTSC or PAL ISOs , and they ask me to update my firmware , do i follow suit?

    Will updating my jap wii through these pal and ntsc cause any problems?

    Thx in advance!

    On a side note , could anyone give me the link for the GenericWiiPatcher and WIIScrubberv1.2.
    I have tried searchin them but to no avail.

    ok i have a jap wii and d2ckey just like u and heres wat i do, update your wii online through the internet first (look online for an english translation for the wii setting if u dont know japanese), then get ntsc-J game iso with the updates u required to play the game (for instance get the jap mario kart iso) then get a pal or ntsc version of the game and wbb it and you should be good to go. (sometimes u need to run the language patcher to run the game such as dragon quest swords)

    NEVER update your wii with an out of region game

    this results in semi-brick or full bricking of console...

    unless you have a NAND backup do not even try...

    update with smash bros jpn game - it has firmware 3.1v2j
    on the disc - brickblock all other out of region games - afaik
    all games should boot just fine with this firmware...
