    this is how to play an iso you burned and it did not run.

    if you dont care about your warranty:

    1. open the console
    2. go to forcast
    3. put in real game
    4. remove the game and replace with burned game
    5. go to wii menu and go to disc menu and play game

    if you DO care about warranty

    1. you will need wii sports or some other game that wont recognize that the disc was removed until you select something

    2. go to wi sports and go the the sports selection menu
    3. eject and put in burned game and quickly press home and reset the software.

    both have worked for me and i am very happy. [removed]
    have a nice day

    First of all Youtube proves nothing. Secondly, with all the exploits being worked on I'm sure that someone would have said something about this and lastly, lanepwnu, you're gunna get banned for advocating fraud. (sending back your wii to nintendo after breaking the seal) Read the rules.

    @Kafluke

    What seal?

    Nintendo has no warranty seal on the system.

    They use Triwing screws to keep people from opening the system. Of course it is easy to buy the Triwing screwdriver to open the Wii.

    Instead of telling the poster they are breaking the rules why not report the thread and let the MOD's make that call. That is what the report thread option is for.

    As for the above...

    Why would you have to open up the console to do those steps?

    Fist off, yes, your right, there is no seal (sorry mod too many 360's lately) but it is still fraud if you screw it up and call nintendo and tell them you dropped it or whatever he was saying.

    Secondly, why don't I report the thread?

    cause I'm not a [removed] thats why. Thought I'd warn the guy before the mods see it and take action, give the guy a chance to edit the thread first but go ahead and report if thats your way

    First things first,

    lanepwnu,

    Advocating fraud is uncool and if I see you do it again you'll be shown the door.

    Second,

    Reporting things that need a Mod's attention isn't being a jerk. Nobody's obligated to report anything but if a person is to be warned about the rules it needs to be done by a Mod ;)

    hmm, funny I screwed up my first wii trying to modify it and burned something out called Nintendo on warranty shipped it back and they sent me another one no questions asked its modded just perfectly, Not sure Nintendo even cares, in the past with as quickly as they are to replace their sytems Its almost apparent they don't want any malfunctioning consoles out there...may leave a bad impression

    Actually, I think there is a seal. Theres paper labels over a lot of the screw wholes, that technically might be usable to decide if the system is tampered with or not. If they wanted to, that is.


    Furthermore, all they would have to do is open the system, check the solder points, and refuse warranty replacement under the grounds that it appears the points were tampered with. However, do I think they really want to take the time to check? Probably not.

    I think moreover most of the tamper detection methods were so that the person attempting to mod a system (such as the ps2) would see that there was something that would detect if they tampered with it, and thus most wouldnt try to get something replaced. For instance, basically honesty via paranoia. Kind of like clerks 1 (if anyone here has seen it).

    There are no seals on the Wii. There are stickers hiding screws but if your careful and pull them off with a razor you won't be able to tell if the console has been open or not.

    There are ways to get around the tamper proof seal on a console (cough cough hot air gun)I have done it many of times in the past. But it has been a while since I have put a modchip in a console. Is it considered fraud if you bring it back to the store you bought it from and say it doesn't work? LOL

    But I haven't installed a Modchip in a while (except for my Wii) since most of the MODs I have done have been softmods for the Xbox, GameCube, and PSP.

    I did install a fliptop for my slimline PS2 but I can't recall a void sticker being on that. Plus I wasn't worried because I just replaced the top of the case and used swap magic so no need to worry about soldering in a chip and messing up the board.
