    Question Softmodding Wii after "virginizeing" it?

    Hi,
    A little while ago I soft-modded my Wii. Fun was had by all. Not too long after that my little niece shoved quarters into it...

    I went about virginizing it so that I could send it back to Nintendo to get it fixed. It's fixed now and was wondering if it would be okay to soft-mod again?

    When I first soft-modded it I soft-modded it with out having to use a disc so I think it was a lower update then 4.3, because now I'm at 4.3.

    Any who so I was just wondering if it would be advisable to go ahead and soft-mod? If it's not advisable how risky would it be if I went ahead and tried? Thanks in advance!

    As far as I know it is ok to resoftmod and for a 4.3 you need a game exploit.

    You need a disc as pig said to re-softmod your Wii and softmodding your Wii again would carry just as much risk as it did the first time.

    LOL. Actually virginizing the Wii carried more of a risk than re-softmodding the Wii will IMO.

    Agreed, I was impressed that they got it virginized. Then I was even more impressed N fixed it and sent it back knowing it will be resoftmodded.

    Yay! Thank you both very much. I had went ahead and bought a game to mod it with, but then at some point I stopped and thought it would be better to ask first.

    Speaking of virginizing it and sending it back to Nintendo, I actually didn't send it back to them. I had planned to, that's why I did it in the first place. But having to pay $70 (that's with warranty!) to just to have them take the change out of it seemed like a bit much. That and I was still worried they would find out I modded it. Luckily, my husband's cousin fixes Wii's. It voided my warranty (it was almost up anyway.), but I think it's better then sending it out to get fixed for $70 and having them find out that it was modded and getting in trouble. I don't know what kind of trouble I would have gotten in, maybe they would call the Wii police or something but I didn't want to have to go through that.

    Any way, thank you both sooo very much for your quick response and clear answers. They were very helpful!

    You would have wasted the cash for shipping because they would have known it was previously softmodded and denied fixing it..

    Did I come off like a jerk?? Read more here

    Yes, it would have been wasted money. Nintendo uses a disc to determine whether a wii is modded and if so, refuses to fix it. You can read about it here: Check Disk for Pre-Repair Process
