    advice sell it quick...if you use nintendo's update...it will detect the mod chip and potentially end it all for you...

    Ha! You'd think people would do some research before modding their consoles.

    Like here - I keep seeing references to a 'mod chip'

    What is it?

    If it is some hacking thing then I am not interested in getting it but even so I am really curious what all these mod chips for the wii are supposed to do.

    The only 'hacking' I am interested in is getting Linux to run on the Wii.
    Why ? Be nice to use it for other purposes while not playing games.

    Thanks,
    Joe

    Its a chip that you solder onto the Wii's DVD drive that allows you to play homebrew, games from other regions, and "backups", AKA pirated games.

    are back ups really concidered pirated?

    i buy a cd, make a copy of it, and keep the copy in my car so i dont mess up the original.
    and if my car gets broken into, i dont have to spend $10-15 per cd. i'm only our a case and a spindle of cd's (out $20 maybe? besides a new window, that's what insurance is for)

    to me, what i do is a backup..
    stupid legallity, so confusing..

    What youre doing isnt illegal because you are allowed to have a copy as a back up for personal use. But when you just download a game off the internet it is piracy.

    That is legal, the reason I said "AKA pirated games" is because nobody mods their console so they can play games they legally backed up. Backup is just something you say so you aren't admitting that you are pirating.
