    Sadly there's lots of noobs that will pay for something like this.

    There's a guy near where I live that uses ModMii to mod people's Wii for $45 and sell back ups discs for $5-$10 each
    He's always spamming craigslist.

    Sounds like a bad situation.

    As long as people can make money of off dead birds, they will do so.

    Best is to just place a message with that those tools and homebrew are free of charge, or avoid them.

    People doing that should at least provide a message saying that all the stuff they have is available for free, and that the payment is just for their guide which will help you install those free things. Then again, that would probably decrease sales. Also, why is it that most of the scam sites that I have seen have the exact same layout?

    if they made the distinction of charging for the service, i wouldn't care. you pay people to change your oil, you can pay someone to mod your wii.

    then you're a dumbass

    I don't know u but I just read someone else calling u out for trolling another thread, so I'm assuming ur not truly a dumbass but instead... like your average troll


    back on track, I don't mind ppl using ModMii and getting paid as long customers are told they could do it themselves for free. In fact one of ModMii's donators told me his donations are financed by half the cash he makes from using ModMii on his friends Wii's (they wanted him to do it even learning ModMii would allow them to do it themselves for free)

    edit: I posted this before seeing NahuelDS's post

    It disgusts me how they "sell" these files to people when they didn't create any of them themselves...
    Distributing them freely without crediting is one thing, but selling? That's beyond that.

    i feel tempted to start posting on Cragslist to mod Wiis for 5$ each...

    time to set up a paypal and modding wiis, then send 95% of the money to the people that actually made the hacks :D!

    LMFGDWHAO!!! I went on a huge bitch fest for someone doing this crap in my area. His name was/is TheXboxGuy. His name was trashed so badly on this forum and it spread like wild fire to the point that the prick lost his job at a used game retailer because he was providing pirated games and creating a loss of revenue to the store owner.

    I'll look for the thread. Damn it was funny.

    edit: damnit. since I had all my post deleted over a year ago off this site, the thread no longer exists because I was the thread starter..... but damn it was a good show.

    At least here is his profile where he mentions me :D (how thoughtful) http://gbatemp.net/u252084-thexboxguy

    Good times, man, good times. The guy deleted his facebook profile too, after I blasted him on the shop's page, haha.
