If it's a launch day wii and you can get it virgin you might be lucky and get a refurbished wii replacement the worst is the phone or write telling you how much to fix

Artifacts typically show up as small dots or lines a bit like pixelation. In some intensive games you can get wierd sparkley effects and black splodges over the screen. With my Wii, I could even see it on the Wii main menu.

No surprise then. I'd say about 85% of LU5x units I've seen run bootmii.

It just depends if it's a refurbished LU5x or an original LU5x. The refurb units I've seen are more prone to being incapable of bootmii (because of mobo replacements).
