    Hey I thinking of getting a Wii soon but I don't want to buy one if I can't run homebrew without a chip. I'm hearing that the Twilight Hack is my way to go, but I'm paranoid about bricking $279.99.

    1. Is the Twilight Hack going to brick my Wii at all?
    2. Can I run WiiWare games without a chip?
    3. I want to go online and not get baned.
    4. Whats a good loader for Wii?

    Thanks!

    P.S. I know I asking a lot of newbie stuff...

    If by loader you mean to play backed up games, you're out of luck. You need to chip your Wii for that.

    1. There is always a risk of course, but the hack is pretty safe
    2. Yes
    3. At this time, Nintendo cannot detect your chip and ban you
    4. The homebrew channel (beta 8 atm) is pretty cool and professional
