    I think that this link above should be removed/modified cause it seems like it's generated inside of affiliates program.

    I've seen that site before (someone recommended it over my guide on yahoo answers [​IMG] ) and they have a decent setup guide.
    But you have to pay for the rest and thats not good.

    There is nothing to do about it though. We can't take it down on our own

    That is just as stupid as the several other scam sites like this.

    Oh well...the customers will see the Scam-Screen on the Homebrewchannel anyways...(if he wasn't to clever and made it as an .wad. If he did, they'll see it during the next Online-Update). And if they don't get the money back, I'm shure they'll sue him (hey, it's America...[​IMG]).

    I don't think these dumb-asses can work out how to do that.

    A less subversive way to deal with this would be to report the site to noalegal@noa.nintendo.com

    for all we know, it could be nintendo themselves trying to make some money off of homebrew.

    Lol. One part claims it could cost $750 to get a Wii with a mod chip. As if paying almost 30 dollars for free software is any better. [​IMG]

    I notice he uses paypal as one payment option. I wonder if you could report it to them.

    Ugh. Selling brew again. It wouldn't surprise me one bit if the "Setup Guide" PDF is a copy of a guide off this site.

    I wonder how upgrade resistant and brick proof it is. There's no way to install bootmii as boot2 without hackmii installer, so they'll see a scam message at one point or another if he included bootmii.

    TT should put a scam warning on the HOME menu of HBC. That way, distribution method won't matter.

    I'd love to see a lawsuit against him...brew is supposed to be free. Period.

    $100 on the fact that he will most likely have the following files in his "soft-mod files"

    cIOS202[38+60]-v4.wad
    cIOS222[38]-v4.wad
    cIOS223[38+37]-v4.wad
    cIOS249-v14.wad or cIOS249-v15.wad
    cIOS250-v14.wad or cIOS250-v15.wad
    IOS70-64-v6687[TB+ES_diV+NAND].wad
