bricking wii is for people who don't pay attention
I bought a wii on monday and it's already soft moded with 4.2u and never had any problems, understand what i need to do to avoid bricks, this device's only benefit is for those who don't understand or do not wish to learn about how a wii works.
After about 12 hours of reading, and tweeking, i'm runing homebrew with all previous systems emulated of a 300GB SATA external drive, have a wsbc partition of 250Gig with over 20 iso's on it and multipartions of fat 32 for my 5K+ roms. I do like how you can play GC without disk but i'm sure someone will come up with a GC emu at some point.
i'll save the 110 as i can get another used Wii for that if ever i brick mine cause i do something STUPID.

Getting on for ease of use for my young son too, I'm just hoping the WODE gets delivered in time for x-mas!

Yes I wish. I am sceptical, I've just posted my misgivings on the Wode website.

People have taken one side and then spend more time slinging shit after ppl who took a different road, rather then debating whats good/bad about both solutions.
Clearly there are benafits from both ways, but to me it's not really clear if the chip is worth the cash compared to a "free" softmod. That only will cost u a SD card, that alot of people anyway have laying around from a old Digi Cam or what ever.
I have yet to brick a wii, never met anyone IRL who have bricked a wii either.
Dunno if that makes me "special" anyway people claim the chip is more children safe i guess, my thourt is automaticly as a old Commodore kid. Homebrew channel and USB loader is sooo simple, compared to loading C64 games with a tape station or codeing a Commodore ViC20 game modual.
If people go for the chip coz it's easyer/faster then spending hours reading and finding the right softmod, thats very understandable to me. If you compare the "work hours" I have spend on "learning" to softmod, then the chip is well worth the money forshure.

I've got a fully softmodded Wii but the softmodding is always complimented by a hardmod and vice versa, even though softmodding can replicate the WODE to a degree the future possibilities of the WODE make it a far more interesting investment.
