Modification Evidence (CiiSI)
I currently have a mint condition old-school Wii which, I am assuming and hoping is a virgin, boot2-capable, Wii, en-route to my house as we speak. I may not get to Softmod it for a few weeks, but I do plan on scrutinizing it thoroughly to make sure it's in tip-top working order. That said, what are some of the things that I can look for to evidence a softmod. Let's say for instance the seller had a botched softmod which didn't quite work right, so he removed the HBC and attempted to sell it. Are there any obvious tell-tale signs to look for that might indicate such? (short of hacking it, installing HBC, and running a SysCheck).
Personally, I would have asked for a screenshot showing the current time/date on the wii. Sure, he could use a different console, but you'd have complete proof he scammed you if the wii was a dud when you get it.
Other than that, I have no idea
I'm not too worried about that; if the Wii is a dud then I'll just get my money back. That's not a problem. What I AM worried about is a half-assed botched mod before-hand. If she ain't a virgin, then she's got to go....

Virgin or none virgin wii does not matter, especially if it's a Boot2 wii "As long as it works".
