    Any chance you could provide me with a few ideas that would keep Nintendo from being able to dectect the mods? I feel like posting them might be against the rules? Maybe not, if it would be could you PM me. I looked for a thread about this kind of thing but couldn't find anything useful. If it's but so complicated maybe the 50 bucks for the reprogram wouldn't be so bad. I'm confident in my abilities, I just know that since I'm more than slightly annoyed at bricking the Wii I may not have my usual caution when tearing it down.

    Unfortunately, Nintendo can detect the mods no matter what you do. There's no PMs necessary. Nintendo has developed tools that are really good @ scanning your wii. They can detect if stuff has ever been installed, mostly using black magic. If they find something, they will either reject the repair or charge you more than the wii is likely worth. More reading here.

    Good luck-

    Well it can be brought back to proper stock (undetectable it was hacked) with a nand programmer if you know what you're doing but that would be useless since stock = fixed in this case. Besides, even if the nand were completely returned to stock, nintendo would be able to tell you disassembled the case which would also void the warranty. Sure there are ways to tamper with hardware so the Wii won't power on but I won't be sharing that info as it would be dishonest and I wouldn't condone such a thing. The OP has contacted me for details on flashing his nand, he just has to talk things over with his wife before making a final decision.

    Just a heads up, I bought my new wii tonight. I followed the guide by mauifrog to hack my new wii. This time I installed priiloader so hopefully if I make any more bad wads I can recover. I will be shipping my bricked wii to streamlinehd in the next couple weeks to have the NAND flashed. Thank you to those who gave me advice.
