Default Wiinja - The Wii gets modded.

It didn't take long. The Wii gets the (dubious) honor of being the first next gen console to have a MOD chip. This small chip resembles similar solutions developed in the PS-1 days and it allows booting of duplicated DVDs.

While some parents will now be less worried about their kids ruining the discs, somehow I doubt this will be the primary purpose of people modding their Wiis. The group of hackers responsible for the modding posted a couple of youtube videos to back their claims.

I won't provide links in this topic and I expect other people won't either. Understandeably, the boards administrators get anal when talking about "sensible" matters like piracy and hacking. The trigger happy lawyers from RIAA and other similar lobbysts are always on the watch
