PostSubject: Homebrew on a chiped wii?   Wed Oct 21, 2009 8:14 am

I will be buying a wii in the next week or 2.

One of the second hand packages that looks like good value has a already chipped wii. The seller isnt sure what type of chip it is. But it dosnt allow some of the functions I want (dvd playback etc)

Would I have any problems installing homebrew etc onto this?
can anyone thing of any down sides to getting a chipped wii?

thanks again all Smile

i believe you can sofmod your wii but don't take my word for it since im not 100% on it.

the downside to having a chip is that it completely voids your warranty and you can't customize your wii as much as you can with softmodding it.


i personally think that hardmoddin your wii is outdated and softmod is the best way to hack your wii. hope that helped some.

Man you guys dont mess about on here do you! haha this is awsum!

Thanks for the help bro! to be honest the only reason I am thinkin of buy this one is cose its cheaper than anytihng else I have seen with more games haha.

I dont have any reall desire to have a chiped wii im all for soft mod.

Just tryin to work out if I could soft mod this 1 when i get it.

Hey there chances are if you are buying a used wii that is already chipped then chances are a warranty is not involved on must used purchases there is no suchthing. Now what is important is what firware is this wii at if you are lucky it will be 4.0 or lower but if its 4.1 or higher you can still softmod the wii everything is on the main page. Yes you can still use dvd playback on a chipped wii through the homebrew channel as a matter of fact when you install divx one of the options is for a chipped wii. My suggestion if the chipped wii is lower in cost then go for it, and right away softmod it.
