quick Q, why do we need to install a patched IOS60 to slot70? Slot 70 is only used by 4.2 wii's, but according to the steps you listed, the wii should finish on 4.1U... wouldn't that require a patched IOS60 installed to slot 60 (instead of slot 70)?mauifrog said:Install IOS70v54321(IOS60-patched).wad

That's what I have read also, although I am not an expert on hacking Korean Wii's, which is why I am doing my research now before starting to give advice on it!damysteryman said:I believe the IOS60-patched wad is to be installed in case somebody does end up starting a wii update to 4.2 on their wii, in which case the patched IOS60 in 70's slot would prevent error 003 for sysmenu 4.2.I just was about to suggest that! So, after installing IOS60-patched to slot 70, could someone safely install 4.2U System menu wad on their regionchanged korean wii? I realize there is no real benefit of a regionchanged 4.2Uwii over a regionchanged 4.1U wii, but still, just curious if it can be done.
also, once a korean wii is region changed, it no longer uses IOS's in the 40's right (ie. IOS4x)? But it is fine to leave these IOSs intact (no point in removing them right?)
[email protected]: I thought it was IOS70 that caused 003 errors (so installing IOS60 in it's slot would fix that). I could be wrong though, I'm not an expert on Wii hacking stuff...

1 & 2 are valid points, but not good reasons for the informed individual to region change their korean wii... that leaves only the 3rd option...tj_cool said:I believe the main reasons they region change is:
1) They don't know it can be done otherwise (many guides/people just tell them to region change)
2) They bought a Korean Region changed wii (sometimes without knowing) because they're cheaper
3) For (Region-free) hacks, which aren't there for Region K
