    Is it safe to go on Wii Shop Channel on 4.0, even though I installed pirated VC/Wiiware games on the menu and SD Card?

    but have you installed wads. The question is is it safe to go on the Wii shop channel or Nintendo Channel if you have installed WADS to your System

    If you have ios61 installed, shop channel is safe.

    Piracy is pretty bad. I'm sure it matters.

    I heard that if you go online "Shop Channel" with pirated VC/Wiiware on the Wii, Nintendo disables those VC/Wiiware titles until you buy and download them.

    Yeah I saw that I understood wrong, the issue was the following:

    Do not buy DLC to a pirated VC/Wiiware title then the title will be blocked until you buy it, but then why would you buy DLC if you already pirated the VC/Wiiware title [​IMG]
