Need Help Changing Region
March 08, 2009 10:30AM
It has been a long time since I've done anything related to homebrew on my Wii.

Right now, I have a U.S. Wii with v3.2 firmwre. (I need that, so Freeloader won't get blocked.)

I want to know what is up with Wii homebrew nowadays now.
Should I update to the latest firmware?
What are the best homebrew programs? (I've only used Gecko OS.)

Also, I would like to know how I could get my Wii to be region free.
I have a U.S. Wii like I've explained, but I want a Japanese firmware on it, so I can type Japanese, get Japanese Wii channels, and be able to play Japanese Wii and GameCube games without Freeloader.

How do I make my U.S. Wii have Japanese firmware, but still be able to play American Wii games?

An application called anyregion changer will convert your Wii from 3.2U firmware to 3.2J firmware. Make sure you read it carefully before you use it.

Ok, I know that 3.4 is the latest one.
If I install the updated Mii channel, and the updated Wii shop channel, would it work like 3.4?
Also, if I change the region 3.2J, is there a way to play American Wii games?

EDIT:Oh, and I also have some U.S. Virtual Console games, how will I be able to boot them after I change the region to 3.2J?
