    Modded Wii And Firmware Update

    Bought my wii pre-modded.
    Is it straight-forward to run a firmware update on a modded wii?
    Are there any detection mechanisms in place during the firmware update procedure affecting the wii's future operation?
    Thanks

    I haven't heard anything about that, but you really never know. I would google around a bit before you test it. This has nothing to with what you asked but take a look http://kotaku.com/gaming/nintendo/ni...acy-251043.php

    Eventhough you can torrent the games, alot of them were confiscated in china lol

    Actually I presume there are no problems updating the firmware on a modded wii - logically - if there were, it would have been threads on the issue

    Well, you will be fine if you update it from the internet, but never update from a game that isn't from your own region or your Wii will be bricked.

    www.joystiq.com reported that doing the current update may brick the console.

    Ohhh FCUK!
    Please can someone with a modded wii (must be a lot of you out there) confirm that a firmware/system update through the internet is not going to brick my console?
    Thanks

    nope it will not brick your console. what Cap' N Mew said is false and not true because if it was then there would be millions of bircked wiis.

    So far the Wii cannot detect modifications. However, there is still no telling how long it will take for Nintendo to come up with a solution similar to Microsofts.
