    N has done me well. Sent a brick in that did not have a vulnerable boot1. They sent back an older console LU5X and it had sysmenu 3.4 installed. I would've thought it would have a higher version but guess not. And only 4 bad blocks on NAND. I wanted to post this in case anyone has been hesitant to send in, you may get lucky as I did. Also the turnaround time was less than 5 days. I would've paid for the repair had they determined foul play but I'll take things the way they are.

    i remember how long my wii sat at 3.4j before bannerbomb came out boy did my psx and n64 get a lot of play time.
    after destroying a fault modchip, i called Nintendo Customer Service and they hung up on me when i told them my wii updated to the Japanese system menu 3.4j the first time and the second time told me i would have to pay for it to be fixed.
    third time i called some guy just said to hold out for a way to fix it through homebrew since i didn't have a Japanese copy of zelda TP or a working modchip, corrupt from the inside i guess.

    It might not be a 'problem', but it's certainly of no fucking benefit having 80 bad blocks, is it? [​IMG]

    i got a LU57XXX with no bad blocks at all, and i've installed and un-installed so many things and bricked a few times bootmii never shows any.
    in fact i did a bootmii backup last night still none.

    [​IMG] Just because Nintendo doesn't like this stuff, it doesn't mean none of their people are aware of it, or that all of THEM hate it.
