Is it safe to use the WAD installer via the homebrew channel?
You won't get an STD or experience any back pain, so yes.
They are safe ENOUGH
There was no problem with them
lol. But couldn't nintendo detect it and brick my wii or something?
Yes, they will send and FBI and you will get the next day an information about bricking!
No, they will not do anything. Now.
If you don't have the Nintendo Channel installed on your Wii, there is no way for Nintendo to know that you are using installed WADs on your Wii. If you do have the Nintendo Channel, it is possible for them to know that you used the WAD Installer/Homebrew Channel/whatever you used to install the WADs, but they can't do anything about it (right now). If I were you, just get rid of the Nintendo Channel if you have it, just to be safe.
Thanks for the polite answer. Final paranoid question: If I use the WAD uninstaller, will I leave any ticket on my wii?
there is nothing safe about piracy
ONLY if you agree to send your play history to them, something you must do to enable downloading of DS demos. Nintendo can't harvest this data from your Wii without your consent.
Uninstaller will remove the ticket, but info will be still left behind in the logs. Only way to get rid of any trace is to format. Oh yeah and use the fucking search, this has been covered a bazillion times.
They are unlikely to start removing installed wads on machines with an update as they may accidently remove legit ones or brick random wiis. They will probably just keep updating the software to look for and remove the Twilight Hack. It was a quick and dirty fix.
they are so dangerous that Nintendo will break your wii, and will even remotely break the computer you used to download them on. So turn off your computer, cancel your internet service, and never ever post on these forums again.
XD nice job being mean to the newbie of gbatemp lmfao. he only had 3 posts...tsk tsk... He's probably crying right now. I feel your ppl's anger on how these questions keep appearing in new topics, but the best way is to either ignore, or to just answer the question. that way this topic wont be bumped again, and everyone leaves happy.
yes there safe they install the same way nintendo does it, its just with homebrew tool, if you turn your wii off during install tho you might get a brick, but i think the IOS works so that it will just delete any corrupt data,
