    You should read this a few times, and ask questions if you need to.

    OK, download Dop-Mii_v12_CB2_BB2.zip and extract it to sd:\
    Click on the sd icon from the channel menu
    Load the boot.dol/elf
    Select the second option, to install ios36 with fakesign bug- follow the instructions
    Then select ios36 from the 1st option, this will load the main menu of options
    Select ios install
    Install Ios 9, 12, 13, 14, 15, 17, 21, 22, 28, 31, 33, 35, 37, 38, 53, 55, 56, 61- From NUSD, without patches
    Delete ios249
    Go back to the main menu (push B)
    -Select Channel install, set region to North America (U)
    -Install any channels you wish to use
    Exit the app

    Download BB2_hackmii-1.6.zip and extract to sd:\
    Click the sd-icon, load boot.dol
    Install HBC, DVDx, Bootmii Ios
    Exit installer, HBC loads
    Push home, load bootmii- make a nand backup
    Exit to HBC

    At this point you have installed the ios files, most of which are not present on the Korean wii, and you have installed any wii channels you wish to have. You have installed HBC, dvdx, and bootmii ios. The wii is still Korean.

    Extract CB2_BB2_Cios38-r17-installer.zip to sd:\
    Load HBC and launch Cios installer
    Use ios36, install from WAD or online
    Now you have cios- Ios249 (and ios250)

    Download
    ARC_mod06_offline4.1_all.part1.rar
    ARC_mod06_offline4.1_all.part2.rar
    Extact the apps and ios folders to sd:\
    Your card should look like-
    sd:\ios
    sd:\apps
    Load HBC, launch ARCmod06_Offline
    Use ios249
    Go down to "system menu 4.1 installer"
    set region to "USA", below that click set&save
    You now have a region mismatch warning
    below that click click install- GO
    The warning should now be gone, all settings should display as USA, English. The install system menu should display 4.1u
    Verify, Verify again
    Now exit to HBC

    Load Dop-Ios-mod
    Select ios249
    scan the wii internals, look at ios60 verify the presence of the trucha bug in ios60. I don't know if anyregion changer installs ios60 patched.
    If ios60 has the trucha bug, exit the app.
    If ios60 does not have the trucha bug, install ios60 with patches, exit the app
    Let me know if ios60 was patched or not

    Extract CB2_BB_Wad-Manager-1.4.zip to sd:\
    Extract IOS70v54321(IOS60-patched).zip to sd:\wad
    Load Wad-Manager, use ios249
    Install IOS70v54321(IOS60-patched).wad

    Extract priiloader 0.3b to sd:\apps\priiloader
    Extract 4.1u-hacks.zip to sd:\
    Load priiloader installer and install
    Hold reset and reboot, keep holding reset
    Priiloader will load
    Click hacks, enable block disk updates, enable block online updates, others if you like them.

    Extract the apps folder form AnyTitle Deleter Mod to sd:\
    Load HBC and launch Anytitle Deleter Mod, use ios249
    You will get an error or two, just push A
    Push 2 to update the database
    Select "System Channel Titles"
    Delete all Korean system channels "HA*K" they end in K, unless you wish to use them.

    Done-
    simple right?

    You may like to check out-
    Usbloader GX and Neogamma r8- these will load backups from usb drives, and disks if your drive can read disks (new drives can not)

    Nintendo Updates will brick your region changed Korean Wii, never ever update via Nintendo.

    As an extra precaution, you should play Lego Indiana Jones NTSC-U and make a savegame on the wii, then install Indiana Pwns and never play the NTSC-U version again. You can play the pal version if you wish.

    One last thing, doing this could BRICK YOUR WII
    And read this-

    can you send me links to those files?

    so this will work only for 4.1k wii? how about 4.2k?

    add: actually i tried using this tutorial.. http://sites.google.com/site/completesg/ha...de/korean-start
    but after i installed neogamma and usbloader. it goes back to main menu.

    to my knowledge there is no 4.2k. And going to 4.2 e/u/j will cause a brick. but dont take it from me, never messed with one.

    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)?

    also, what are the benefits to having a hacked korean region changed 4.2U Wii (or 4.1U Wii) over a fully hacked 4.2K Wii (not region changed)?

    I am working on a project, so any information you (or anyone) gives me, will eventually benefit everyone once I release my program [​IMG]

    Thanks in advance.

    edit: at trush info, there is a 4.2K, and they can be hacked, read here

    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.

    There is a 4.2k, and it should have all the ios files, you probably don't need to install them. ARC mod will take you to 4.1u/e/j/k, from your current SM, so it will work with 4.2k. I will PM you some links.

    My reply after just reading the topic: DON'T!

    I think you need to patch the system menu to not show 003 error, which would still mean: system update = brick.

    You have followed my Korean guide and it worked as you have the HBC, but Backup launchers reset?

    Did you install cIOS? It doesn't tell that in my guide directly, but you need them to run backups.

    @WiiPower: 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...

    edit: seems I'm a bit unclear here - IOS70 itself doesn't throw the error ofc, the system menu (4.2) does [​IMG] (But it does that because of checks in IOS70 for korean key)

    @mauifrog: Sharing illegal files like that isn't allowed either [​IMG]

    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!

    edit: what are the benefits to having a hacked korean region changed 4.2U Wii (or 4.1U Wii) over a fully hacked 4.2K Wii (not region changed)? It seems like its a lot easier to not change regions... if there's no extra benefit... why are people still doing it?

    edit2: is the only benefit to region changing a korean wii is to be able to play original disks from other regions using the disk channel? Does installing darkcorp fix that? If this is the only difference (which is all i've turned up in my research so far) then region changing is not worth it (in my opinion)... why bother when a 4.2K wii with the HBC and cIOSs can get usb loaders and backup disks (working via neogamma or darkcorp).

    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

    Also, I had to correct my post above. It's not IOS70 throwing the error, but sym 4.2 [​IMG]

    Afaik, there were just 2 changes for the 4.2 update
    * An update of IOS70 to check for Korean Key
    * An update in system menu 4.2 that uses this data from it's IOS (aka it actually calls the check) and throws 003 if needed
    That would cause all other matches of IOS/Sym to never throw 003

    Again, that's just my point of view

    Are you sure they're illegal files? WiiBrew has them directly on their website HERE (see the very last paragraph)... and wiibrew is even more strict with their rules than gbatemp.

    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...

    I know for a fact that there is a region-free everything hack for 4.2K wii's, its included in this hacks.ini. I have never tested it on a 4.2K or 4.1K Wii... are you saying these hacks don't work on Korean wii's (or did you not realize these hacks existed)?

    I don#t know why people change there Korean wiis. I changed mine because I am not Korean, but most are sold that way. Regardless, who cares, it is what the poster wants to do, and there is no reason not to if you can accept the risks. I don#t think anyone has much reason to run 4.2, especially Kor wiis, so installing ios60 into ios70 is a precautionary measure. But any Korean wii with ios60 installed into ios70 can run 4.2 without error. It is probably safer to patch ios60 than it would be to patch SM 4.2.

    Also, I have not posted any illegal files, thank you. I am very capable of reading and following the rules, I have not broken any of them.
