Mod Chip Warning:

After you update and go back to the update section to before a "test update" you will be greeted with a message that says something to effect that if you have a modified Wii your console may be disabled or lock up. Mod Chippers owned? If you want to cancel you have to power down your system.

HA HA, Nintendo Owned, the update does not affect modified consoles.
I didn't even get a message about modified consoles on mine, LOL

I didn't think it would affect chips because it is a Nintendo Firmware update and the chip is not linked to the Nintendo firmware in any way.

This update is currently safe to update with a chip installed

All the warning on that screenshot above says is:

"If your Wii console has an unauthorized technical modification, this upgrade could cause inoperability of your console"

Its says "could cause" not "will cause", mine is fine and according to a chip developers website I visit most of the members on their have updated fine too.

Nintendo will have to come up with something better than that, hackers are always 1 step ahead, look at Sony's feeble attempts to stop piracy on the PSP with their updates and it still don't prevent piracy. LOL

I won't tell those of you with a modded Wii to update, that is up to you. I am just saying it was fine on mine and the other members on another forum I speak to and thats it.
