Okay, So I have modded and played with too many Wiis that aren't my own. So now I feel that it's time for me to get one. However, with the whole cut pin scare and new DVD chips out there I fear my chances on getting a moddable Wii from retailers would be slim to none (leaning more towards the none side). But, I've lucked out that few of my friends have Wiis and have zero want to mod them. So if I were to aquire a Wii I feel that I could just swap machines with them and start from square one with a launch machine. But since I've never owned a Wii I'm really unsure what all would be at stake for a friend to swap out with me. As in, aside from them gaining a new machine and losing their old machine what kind of settings and / or saved things would they be losing if I were to swap out with them? Are most things able to be backuped or Am I "SOL"? I'm sure I can just buy the elusive Wiip chip that states it will be able to work on all models and hope that I don't get one with the pins cut (I really really don't want to dremel down the chip). I apperciate it!
