    Do i update wii, its chipped!

    hi guys,

    have had wii chipped and am getting games to try before i buy, but the wii wants to update but says if its been modified it could not work, so i decided against the latest update.
    i have a copy of metroid prime but when i put in disc it wont play but just wants to update, will i "brick" the wii with these updates.

    cheers.

    There have been many reports of modded Wii consoles becoming "bricked" if they performed a system update, so I think that it is very likely that the console will not work afterwards.

    THAT MUST SUCK!!!!
    and oh...cant u just burn a Metroid...perhaps without the update?
    and why did u buy it? Its modded...

    People usually mod to save money.
    The best thingy to mod is the DS and PSP. They cant be bricked :P

    Should have thought about updating before you modded it.

    the update will not brick your wii its 100% safe. as long as the metroid disc is of your own region. the nintendo threat is a nothing more than writing on screen and will not effect your wii in any way.

    and people who keep saying that its your fault for modding. you all are forgeting that modchips do more than play copies as i have my wii modded and its a great way to play all my imported gamecube games. i dont have one copied game.

    some games like mp3 require small updates, but i doubt it will do anything. good luck. Firmware updates do brick wiis with certain types of mod chips though.

    it dosnt matter what mod chip you have installed the wiiupdate will not brick your wii if its of your own region. there is no where nintendo can tell if you have a modchip apart from going to every bodys house in the world and opening there wii's and looking inside.
