    I dont know how accurate the serial # trick is, and i dont know how accurate this is... BUT

    i bought a wii last week from Toys-R-Us and noticed that the wiimote is now in the same part of the box as the console itself (theres parts 1 and 2, normally they are in seperate parts)

    I opened it all up excited to mod it, and the legs were cut. I talked to my supplier online who has an old batch of UNCUT and a NEW BATCH he just got it...

    The old uncut batch has the wiimotes in a DIFFERENT section, while the NEW ONES (that are most likely cut) have the wiimote in WITH the console itself.

    Can anyone with a uncut and also a cut one tell me how yours was to help confirm this?

    If this has been mentioned, i apologize

    edit ..... i think the serial numbers are not always right [​IMG] some people who have went above the cut off line have wiis that can be done with no cut legs [​IMG] i guess it depends what region it is [​IMG]

    A friend of mine bought a PAL-Wii last saturday, and the controller and console where in the same section. Also, the version of Wii sports that came with it, was in a cardboard box instead of the regular wii dvd-box.
    No idea about the serial number though.

    guess what, the legs were cut

    It doesn't matter what serial number you have because some people below my serial number had cut legs and mines was fine [​IMG] i had a d2b chip with no cut legs, the serial number was LEH-1228xxxxxx. according to the gbatemp wiki i should have cut legs but i didn't.

    i wasn't really worried about the cut legs, i was just worried about the newer generation chip. i'm pleased you managed to get it sorted though. [​IMG]
