    Wii bricked explanation?

    So just got my wii modded with the wiikey and well awaiting to get it through the mail.

    I have several backups of wii games that are labeled NTSC format and very few Jp and PAL types. I keep hearing about this whole bricking of your wii if you play a game and dont use wiibrickblocker it may kill your wii.

    So whats the deal?

    Should i just use it on all of the games even if they are NTSC format or maybe just turn off the wireless feature.

    im soooooo confused..

    THanks

    You might want to take a look at the rules:

    18. No Warez
    Posting up and asking for illegal warez is strictly prohibited. This includes but is not limited to: ROMs, isos, and game cracks. Violation of this Rule will usually result anywhere from a Warning to a Ban, depending on the offence.

    I know you're not asking for ISOs, but Wii Key is linked to illegal backups so...

    This has to do with imports, not iso's roms or whatever. Be careful about updating your Wii, that is where bricks will occur when Nintendo decides to brick everyone with a modchip. That is why my Wii isn't modded.
    edit: Just saw the word backups. BACKUPS. That means it is HIS GAMES.

    Yes, which is why most mod chips claim to be "stealth". Blocking diode maybe? Who knows. Could care less about playing "backups", those interested in massive game libraries without paying for them will end up paying for them in the long run. I suggest investing in something like GameFly or so for those interested in an alternative to pirated software. (NOT directing that comment to anyone specific!)

    The most interesting thing about the mod chips personally is I am all about the homebrew. Looking forward to see what comes about WiiLi (Linux distro for the Wii) and others. Once my warranty runs out I may consider getting one myself, however that depends on ALOT of factors that cannot be answered at the present date. It will depend heavily what is available as well as if it is worth the risks or not.

    Best of luck to you innerrefle.

    Yea mod chips sound cool and all, but any modification to the standard console is not great for it. Anything can happen with these updates from Nintendo you really never know. I was intrigued when I saw these mod chips become available but I really don't trust anyone/myself with soldering or inputing anything into my perfect console, Maybe if I had two..

    Reminder: The game companies are far beyond pissed off at people who are modding their consoles. They are taking action. All companies 3 will brick your console if you mod it. You have been warned. I'm glad too. This reduces the amount of hackers/vagrants in online games. They ruined MGSO to the point where Konami just decided to close the servers.

    Hardware manufacturers are more interested in protecting there profits than the hardware they provide.

    With that in mind it really depends on what you DO with your modded console that makes the difference. Sony opened up the doors to homebrew by means of just making it available on release to it's overpriced toy, and Nintendo plans to push it's own homebrew style software via WiiWare. Xbox 360 Live! to my knowledge does (or will) provide homebrew downloads as part of it's service. If it wasn't for things like mod chips such ideas would probably never been conceived by companies such as Nintendo and others.

    Personally I don't like the idea of paying for something that is generally provided for free anyways. Things like the Nintendo's Oprah browser isn't so bad, but $5 USD (500 points) for something specially ported verses $5 for something specially written and is as boring as watching grass grow are two different things.

    Again if it wasn't for mod chips and other inventive hacks I doubt there would be any incentive to allow low end 3rd party developers even a chance to take advantage of there hardware. It's also to my understanding that a lot of the Wii's firmware is built upon open source technology, such a Bit Torrent for example, which has helped keep the price tag for the Wii considerably low. Most console homebrew and open source software pretty much walk hand in hand, either by porting of existing software or by means of community contributed content.

    Rest assured that companies will continue to develop means of protecting there media, and people will continue to work about means to crack it. At least they're starting to acknowledge those who enjoy there hardware in a legally alternative manner now, as they continue to strive to find new means of preventing those who intend to rip them off.
