As much as i know, it is reported to be safe to go online with all current Modchips. Is it also safe to go online if... - You have WiiWare/Virtual Console Games installed? (of course - you don't have a valid license ) - You have Gamesaves from USA/JAP/EUR on your Console? - You have cIOS/cMIOS installed - You have HomeBrew/Backup/Emu etc.. - Channels installed? - You have DVDx installed? - You have changed your Wii to an other Region? Have an foreign Systemmenu installed? - You play Backups online (Softmod & Modchip)? Is Nintendo tolerating this ALL? No Ban? No further Trouble? (At least - they have your IP!) P.S.: If you are under 3.4, will they force you to update if you try playing online? Or will they only try to update if you connect to the Shopchannel directly? How to stop them?!
