Hiding Homebrew from Nintendo?
This is a long post so I'll summarize:
How can I make sure Nintendo doesn't find out I soft modded a (FULLY Bricked) Wii when I send it in for repair??
I was recently given a fully bricked Wii for free. I had modded it using banner bomb and hackmii, and then he had downgraded the system using various soft mods, and when he upgraded (stupidly) it bricked the wii, constant black screen from boot. Called nintendo, it's out of warranty but I gave a sob story and said my roommates fuck with it all the time, and he agreed that if the problem wasn't a "hack" related thing, they could replace my wii for free and they send me labels. I want to MAKE sure they don't find the soft mod? I took the sd card out, and he said it was fine if it was water damaged, so I submerged it in water, froze it, thawed it and dried it out with a blow dryer (it got reaaaal hot and im sure something melted inside too) after shaking the hell out of it hoping to damage something on the inside haha. Is there anyway I can insure that it's too broken for them to find Homebrew? If this works, this might be the best way to fix a bricked wii :p.
also, I realize this is a weird topic.
