    I have a virgin 4.2k (korean) wii that i want to install homebrew and change the language to english
    but have no idea on how to go about it.
    all the guides i have read regarding 4.2 don't seem to include much info for korean wii's

    any help would be great. Thanks

    Yeah, Korean Wiis are out of luck as far as I know. But I guess you could be a guinea pig for anyone trying to crack them...

    but does that mean it's not doable yet

    run bannerbomb to run trucha bug restorer 1.1

    http://bannerbomb.qoid.us/index.new.php
    http://filetrip.net/f7491-Trucha-Bug-Restorer-1-1.html

    put the private folder on the root of your sd card
    and take the boot.dol out of the TBR folder and also put it on the root

    does TBR run?

    OK cool i just tried what you said xzxero and it worked
    after every step it gave me a code dump on the screen after i exited TBR

    but it seemed to have worked.
    what do i do next

    edit:
    oh i had to change the boot file in the modify.zip to the TBR one as it wanted to run homebrew installer
    do i need to now add it back and try installing HB yet?

    get the boot.dol from the AnyTitleDeleterDB folder
    and replace it with the TBR boot.dol [ the on on the root]

    run bannerbomb again and this time it should boot up AnytitleDeleterDB

    do this

    Do you think he could run the HackMii Installer at this point?

    ok run NUSD and get

    NUS (IOS > IOS 34 > v3348 & WAD)
    NUS (IOS > IOS 36 > v3351 & WAD)
    NUS (IOS > IOS 61 > v5405 & WAD)

    grab these wads and put them in the wad folder
    IOS61-64-v5405.wad
    IOS36-64-v3351.wad
    IOS34-64-v3348.wad

    install them with wad manager

    run bannerbomb and this time run the hackmii installer [boot.elf from the modify.zip]

    hopefully you can do this

    the homebrew channel - can be installed
    DVDX - can be installed
    bootMii - can only be installed as an IOS

    so install HB now yes?
    also what about bootMii should i also install it as an IOS?
