    modifying wii ?

    ive just bought my wii yesterday looks to me its version 3.1
    It plays also plays pirated games

    My question is
    1) Has my wii been modified already since it plays pirated games? (but i bought it brand new!)

    2) It plays pirated games but it doesnt play dvd movies! My friend had told me that if modified already it can play movies!
    mine cant!!

    so IS it modified already or not?

    what features can your wii have after its modified?

    thanks

    if it plays pirated games (which is illegal by the way ) then it has been modded some how and is not 'brand new'
    Most of the time a hacked wii will play movies, but not always; How are u able to play these 'pirated' games? do u have something called backup launcher or does it play through the normal disc channel?

    Your Wii was not new; it was indeed modded in some way. Could either be a chipmod or a softmod as its history is unknown. You might like to start your reading with this: http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...g-wii-faq.html

    oooh ... ok

    well i was curious ...so i modded it (again... if it had been modded before i bought it)
    I used soft mod followed the instruction ; h**p://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-faqs-guides-tutorials-only/16970-new-3-1-4-1-softmod-any-wii.html

    then did installed the media player and the dvdx.... BUT such a waste when i put in my dvd it didnt even work.how do we get it to work?
    Can i just erase it directly from the memory card?

    and a message keeps popping when im in the homebrew page.....
    "an update to the homebrew channel is available version 1.0.6 update now?
    release notes: SCAM ALERT"
    SHOULD I UPDATE or is it risky??

    In addition to installing the DVDx cIOS, you need MPlayer CE: http://www.wiihacks.com/homebrew/200...r-ce-dvdx.html

    It is fine to accept the HBC update- the 1.0.6 version fixes a freezing bug in the previous version.
