    Fairly soon.
    There has already been a way to bypass the fix via pc to Wii.

    Nintendo annonced that they would not let the wii become a second xbox 360 with mods, and they would "tighten" on security (i gusse via 24wiiconnect, Wi-Fi)

    Yeah, I have heard rumors of this, but have not read anything official. Do you have a link to an official statement by nintendo? If it was going to be fixed, they would do it via wiiconnect no doubt, but even the updates via wiiconnect are limited. I guess it will depend on the bug that is exploited to run backups.

    i think it will be interesting to see what happens. i always heard that mods increase sales of consoles, thus increasing profit for the console company... but that is just another "internet rumor" too.

    Just like Microsoft said that the Xbox 360 was "unhackable."

    As a computer science graduate fresh out of school, even I could have told them that there is no such a thing as "unhackable" :D Well, not without rendering the system unusable.

    It may well be true for the producer of the console, but game developers suffer greatly from software piracy and without their support, any console would eventually wither and die.

    So, region-free all the way :thumbsup: But hacks for reading burned DVDs or data images :nono:
