    Well a friends friend want to pay ME for hacking his wii!

    What should I ask for it since he thinks I may have some money for doing it.

    Ill install:

    WiiFlow
    cIOS
    cIOS Corp
    HBC
    Wad manager
    And some more!

    Ghehe its not my idea to charge something for it. The friend tried himself but he does not understand all those terms! [​IMG]

    Sooo any ideas on how many I should ask? [​IMG] ORRR should I do it for free?

    [​IMG] Lol just spoke to that guy for the first time.(trough phone) He said that he really wanted to pay me [​IMG]

    And I do not know him. I never saw him before neither do now!

    And please not so high €200 is to much.

    what about €10?

    Well then he is not a friend. Is Wii hacking hard? If not, charge him ~€50. If it is hard, €75 ~ €100

    It's a tactic. The reason I said £200 so you could see how far he would go. You can start at a £100 and start dropping from there if you want.

    30€ sounds reasonable if you warrant to him not bricking his console etc.

    You did tell your friend that it isn't a guaranteed hack, right? That's why I think you should do it for free. He may inadvertently update the unit, removing the hacks, and come to you again to get it set up again.

    He must be an idiot if he can't do it himself.
    It's so easy, charge like 10-20, if that.

    Be warned, if anything ever goes wrong, YOU are the one guilty for it. That's why I don't "hack" other people's wiis.

    If he can't handle the initial hacking I doubt he'll be able to handle WADManager etc. or hack maintenance. Leave a readme file somewhere for him. Make sure to install HomebrewBrowser for him

    Do it for free.
    And say, it almost never goes wrong, but if so. No warrenty. I'll do it for free.

    Most of the time(always) you will get some free moneys anyways afterwards. eheh

    Though I only do friends and families Wii's. I always got money for it so far, while I said I do it for free.

    So.. give that a shot? (Allthough, I meet friends IRL.. lol)

    (Edit: 1000th post... yay)

    I see your plan....
    Oh god please yes.

    Or, You can get the guy to provide is own SD card, and still charge the 30$ but i think 30$ is just, unless you can get more from the person haha
