    So Is it safe to use the internet on your Wii with illegal wads and custom channels installed?

    I heard that Nintendo did scans for the twighlight hack during a previous firmware update and was wondering if they would do the same thing for the backup launcher or having the custom CIOS installed.

    So what do you guys think? Safe to use WiiCONNECT24, internet channel or even play backed up games online??


    Any thoughts on this?

    So far, yes, it's safe to do all that.
    No problems whatsoever.

    Aaaaaaaaaaaaggggggghhhhhhh

    MY EYES BURN FROM READING THESE QUESTIONS OVER AND OVER AND OVER!

    If you are intelligent enough to utilize wads and homebrew, then use the rest of your intelligence (it may not be much) and search for your answer on the internet.

    Back'd up games should work fine online, since there is no way of Ninty finding out that it is backed up and also don't install the Nintendo Channel, it can scan your Wii and apparently can block your internet from your Wii (Normal internet should work fine, Nintendo don't rule the world xD).

    That is absolute Tosh about the Nintendo Channel, although it can receive data of usage from your wii (only if you agree to the opting in or out)
    Either way they couldn't block you, as yet.
