    Someone on a torrent said this. I've heard nothing like that before, any truth to it?

    I'm sure you'll find your answer...

    Yes. You have to uninstall and format before you can go to the Wii shop channel.

    First, you have to uninstall every channel you have... then you have to format your Wii... then you have to wash your Wii in Kerosene by letting it sit in a metal tub full for 27 minutes... if you go one second over or under, it won't work... then you have to turn it on within 6 seconds of pulling it out of the Kerosene... that's the only way Nintendo won't know you've pirated software... it works... I've done it many times!

    Will someone give a straight answer?

    Do you need to uninstall only WAD's? Or like homebrew channel too?
    What do you mean by 'format' the Wii?

    Uninstall everything that wouldn't ordinarily be there if you hadn't used the hack. And someone REALLY needs to make a sticky proclaiming the exact risks of everything here to stop these topics springing up at least once a day.

    Useless as "the exact risks" are :
    • Unknown
    • Changing each update
    • Pure speculation
    If you are paranoid, then don't install anything on your Wii.

    Fair point, but a topic just saying that would be good enough to stop all these "paranoid" topics popping up.

    it is unsafe in my opinion. the shop can see if you own the game or not...

    well... i just go on the shop channel anyways, it just says you've downloaded the title.

    but if you delete from the data management it doesnt let you redownlaod them. it jsut comes up with an error mesage and doesnt let you redownload it.

    Bah I'm not scared about Nintendo's move what they can do for me? Only thing - ban me from net, and I doubt it, and there is always an excuse 'blabla I bought it from someone". They cannot arrest me here in Poland. I have UK in my country settings. Hahaha search the globe.

    And if Nintendo starts banning people here is super mega useful information called internet in PC. I will get an info as soon as N will ban, but really there is no fear now, so I will continue playing Mario Kart Wii online
    (How could I life without it [​IMG]) And:

    HACKING ALWAYS WAS, IS AND BE RISKY

    'Cause of bad tickets in almost 90% of releases.

    Anyone have any updates on the situation besides rumors and stuff? Now that I can install any games I want, i have no use for my wii points and want to gift them, but I've already installed many wads with save files >_
