    [15:51] it has a time bomb
    [15:51] time bomb?
    [15:51] if you install any wads after you install BootMii, it will brick your wii.

    JUST CONFIRMED BY CREDIAR ON #SOFTMII

    Sounds fake. If it were true, would a "wad" be limited to a pirated VC/WiiWare file or any wad like a system file?

    TT has repeatedly stated that it's nintendo's responsibility to stop piracy and not theirs.

    [16:00] I meant wad as in VC/WW wad. GBATemp is so gullible, tbh.

    Good lies are very close to the truth. If that was true, we would have had 100 new topics with bricks within the 1 hour after BootMii's release. But a timebomb that is activated at a certain date would be funny.

    It wont brick unless you install the flux capicitor wad on 5/15/2009 @ 1600 GMT. You know the one that melts your NAND using 10 hit points of nerd drama power.

    That's awesome [​IMG] But no, I don't believe that Team Twiizers would try to brick any Wii other than their own . It doesn't make any sense either, because BootMii is supposed to be "brick free".

    XFD @ damage control. This has to be fake. Besides, let's say it bricks you. Since there's no uninstaller for BootMii yet the thing can't wipe itself. Therefore any brick it would cause would be recoverable with a nand restore.

    Of course it was a joke. I didn't think GBATemp would actually react in a smart manner, but you guys amazed me. Good job.

    However these logs from wan, are real. I'll get him to confirm, if I have to.
