    The best part is that the only real way to unbrick a system without sending it to the Nintendog is by "unauthorized system modification". This really just slays me.

    Brick one Wii, get two free!

    I think though, that for every Wii that's bricked from this method, we should be able to throw a brick through a window at Nintendo HQ. Or just be able to take one swing at Shingeru Miyamoto (who I'm pretty sure is a lifeless, unethical, and souless robot whose become victim to the "casual crowd") with cricket paddle.

    This reminds me of the EOF thing.

    Anyway, I won't update to system menu 4.2 because it's useless. I rather stay at 4.1 instead.

    Wtf your the fucking idiot here. Not only your using their system, your also downloading their games. You probably also call them idiots because they`re try to protect what´s theirs. [​IMG]
