    Looks like Nintendo are none too happy with Mr Waninkoko and his tools....

    His site http://waninkoko.wiinewz.com/ has been taken down and now redirects to the Nintendo legal page!! [​IMG]

    The only link that works is the link to WAD Installer v1.1

    Can I just point out, that 'Nintendo' legal page doesn't look legit to me at all. Plus none of the links on the Nintendo site work, whats really going on here?

    Yeah, it's real. The links are all broken because that page hasn't been updated since 2000.

    And yeah, it's probably a joke by wiinewz.

    Yeah, I think that Wiinewz did that. According to xaiNaix, Nintendo sent a cease and desist to their host, which mentioned the WADinstaller...

    Very good. It wouldn't be right if Nintendo didn't try to defend themselves.

    You sound angry, maybe you should just go yoyo or something.

    OH MY DOOOMSDAAAAYYYYY!! Puh-lease...are you people new or what? This is the same thing everything hacked goes through. If you are truely THAT worried about bricking your systems, don't hack/use hb/pirate etc...or better yet, keep your damn systems off the internet. I am soo tired of the "omgzerz any day now we(wii) will diiieee!!" Trust me, this stuff is nothing compared to the back and forth with sattilite programming...
