    It is fair to say that i am pretty pissed off, last night my Wii got stolen.
    If that wasn't bad enough there were 3 of us in the house when it was taken... That's ridiculous. Some people are just *****.

    There were also halfway through taking the 360 too but must have got spooken and bolted or they just didn't realise how to unplug the ethernet cable.

    They took some games (including wii sports resort and leaving the 2 Wii Motion Plus), a remote, my wireless 360 controller and my wireless nunchuck (minus the receiver...fucking idiots).

    People like that do my head in, we were only out of the room for about 10 minutes, ass faces.


    Had the CID round this morning searching for fingerprints off the 360 but didn't manage any so the likelihood of them getting caught....very slim i would say.


    Anyways, if anyone sees a Wii for sale in the Sheffield area with the GC memory card door broken off, please PM me.

    Well, as I've only had the 360 a week i was thinking the opposite, even though I prefer the wii to it anyway.

    well whoever wasn't there when you came back was the one to take it... shouldn't be that hard to figure out if there was only three of you?.... oh wait a second never mind but geez what a size of balls on that criminal to jump in and snatch your systems with you guys there.... was definitely watching you and waiting for the opportunity in that case... or it was an inside job.... either way sucks... hope you get sorted

    Well i bought it as a refurbished Pro so hopefully it won't RROD at all, specially as i plan to flash the drive. That would be a bugger.

    It was an inside job. Your friends or one of them plotted on you and stole your Wii. You better keep an eye on them.

    that sucks man, reminds of me my close friend who also got robbed.
    we left for a half hour and when got back, his modded xbox 360 with 20 games, 3 controllers was gone and so was his modded wii with like at least 60 backups.

    we did a little investigating and found out it was his neighbor.

    by the time we found out tho, he moved and was long gone with the goods.

    so we just beat up his uncle that still lived at the house pretty hard.

    You beat up his uncle? That's pretty funny.

    It definitely wasn't my house mates, i have access to their rooms at all times. Plus we found the base of the Wii outside the back door and the back gate was open.


    Luckily i managed to get a nand backup a few days earlier. I know i can restore that using some other tool or something i read somewhere but i assume that just restores everything, cIOSes and everything.

    Is there a way to extract the nand dump into folders and stuff so i can just install my savegames and wiis when i buy a new one?

    Beat up his uncle? That's not funny at all. Basically you just responded to a crime with another crime, and what's even worse, his uncle probably had nothing to do with it.

    It's because guys like you that violence exists.
