Modchip Wii Voids Warranty? Not Necessarily
DriveKey / Wasabidx / solderless modchips does not have to Void your Warranty
Now theres been so much talk here by members about voiding your wii warranty if you mod your wii.
That is not neccessarily true....as many have had warranty repairs
- if you use a solderless modchip properly...it does not alter any of the wii factory software, does NOT show any signs of tampering. Say your wii develops a warranty repair problem. Just remove the modchip..Close it up and Bam...just like factory. Send in for warranty repair
The reason you still have warranty is there are NO *warranty void if broken stickers* on the wii..like on ps2/ps3/xbox..etc... LOL...unless you really *cough*botched it up...or you were to openly say differently.:rolleyes:
Many, many have just removed the modchip and got their warranty repair
NOW if you happen to have bought an Extended Warranty when you purchased the wii..EVEN BETTER...Rem what they said...drop it off a building, break it into pieces...and no problem...just bring it back to the store and we will replace it....LOL
- NOW...If you Softmod your wii and it becomes bricked....and you send it in for repair with the customized software....They read your nand.....Bam..no warranty
NOW We are in NO WAY suggesting that is what you do...We are merely stating the Facts with regards to what most people with modchip modded wii's do if they require warranty repair and haven't had any warranty problems.
