    NEWB! That needs some advice(and a thread title)

    SO.
    1. Hardmod are things like, [ripoff site #1], or [ripoff site #2]

    Softmod are things like The twilight Hack.
    Correct?

    2. Will [ripoff site #1] unlock my wii simply without me having to do alot of things like downloading extra files, uploading downloading? And is it legal and will it affect my warranty?

    3. Is it worth paying for [ripoff site #1]? if i want to get DVD play back, backup games, play Back ups ect. and it be easy to do?

    4. Is [ripoff site #1] Worth the money, once unlocked is the wii the same as it used to be i.e as fast, good prefomance. Is the wii easy to use after an unlock, DVD futions easy to use? Back up a game? is it Easy?

    Thnks

    Those things are scams and no they are not hardmods. Follow the guides here to softmod your Wii, do NOT pay for software to modify the Wii.

    I repeat, do not pay for software to mod the Wii, you can get everything needed right here. Stop by and make a post in the introduction section.

    Installing any unauthorized software on the Wii will void the warranty.
    Damn I suck!!!!

    Blu gave you some great advice in irc. Like Krank said, everything you mentioned (sans the twilight hack) is a rip-off. "Unlocking" isn't a term we generally use regarding the Wii as well, and is a great indication of someone trying to steal your money.

    If you did indeed pay them already as you indicated in chat I'd suggest you try and get your money back. The files and "instructions" you got from them unfortunately won't help.

    Read through maui's guide that blu pointed you to, over and over if you have to, and follow its instructions. Everything you need to softmod your console properly is on this site, but you have to do some reading if you want it done right.

    For free I might add (in case that wasn't clear)

    Yes, but I'm sure he was told the same thing in chat so... my thinking was the more times the he hears it, the better chance it has of sinking in. Some people are not aware of things of such. I just about paid for a softmod before I found this site and discovered everything I needed was right here... for free.

    Any hardmod will void your warranty. Softmods may not, but they will be removed by nintendo if you ever do have to send it in for repair. If you have one that is still under warranty it probably will not play dvds. The newer wiis cannot read them. It also will not play back up discs, you will need to run off a usb device for back up games.

    In case you missed it in the earlier posts here: DO NOT PAY for any softmod! Everything you need to do it is on this site and FREE!
