    Someone didn't read. He doesn't provide a SD card.

    "SD Not Provided"
    "BUT WILL NOT PROVIDE SD WHICH WOULD BE JUST PLUG AND PLAY".

    It doesn't include the sd card
    This guy lives round the corner from me
    What he does is send you links to the software and he tells you what to put on your own sd card for each step of the process
    In other words he just sells you a guide that he sends you in a cut n paste step
    If you get stuck he will talk you through it
    But tbh you get the same standards if not better from a dogeggs guide and if you find that hard then a YouTube vid

    That price is pretty cheap to help someone that is too stupid to even follow one of the multitudes of free guides already made. I can only imagine the frustration of helping someone that clueless.

    Yeah, but you are kind of selling someone else's work who donated it for free. Happened with the Kodi community. People started selling boxes with open source software and some devs just quit putting stuff out there. When it is posted on eBay, everyone knows...that's the issue. If this guy was giving a kickback to the people that created these hacks that would be a little different, but I doubt that will do that.

    I don't see the point. Most open-source licences allow you to charge for service. Some of them even allow you to sell the actual software/rebrand it completely.

    It looks like he donates a portion of the money to charity, I give him credit for doing that at least. Just think of the last time you helped your mom or dad, or grandparent if you are younger, with computer stuff. It's the same kind of help, helping someone clueless is not easy. Although I forgive older people like my parents, because they didn't grow up in this generation, they're in their 70s, but anyone that wants to use hacks on their Wii U is obviously the age where they should really know better, and must be really challenged in comparison.

    That's nothing. This guy in my area is charging $30 for a 16GB SD card, and what's essentially a browser bookmark.

    Personally I feel that if you're servicing somebodies hardware, or setting something up such as a server, you have a right to charge them even if the contents (in this case payloads/homebrew) are technically free. You're providing them something they don't want to do themselves because they are lazy or just don't want to bother with it themselves. Unfortunately, that doesn't seem to be what these guys are doing. They are just providing the same thing the threads here do.

    I get asked a couple times a year to hack Wii's, and usually make $20 from each one. I tell them everything I do is free if they want to do it themselves, but most rather not spend the time. Why? Not sure since it only takes about 5 minutes, but that's how it is. I assume it's the brick risk because they may not understand something idk. Easy $20.
