Nintendo Wii softmod

Homebrew Channe


Early Nintendo Wii software modifications (Softmod) could easily brick the Wii console during Nintendo updates. Later more developed Softmods allowed users to turn off the update procedures which proved to be a safer way to operate the Wii with a software modifciation.

With a Softmod you are:

  • Able to watch DVDs movies
  • Able to play emulator games such as (PSX,Super-Nintendo,GBA)
  • Able to play games from USB thumbdrive and Hard-Disk
  • Many other cool programmes that you will be surprised that you can run in the homebrew channel.
Softmod with Collection & Delivery back anywhere in the UK - £45

Unlike the physical alternative, a modchip, the Wii softmod does not require that the console be dismatled. The advantage of the Softmod is that it allows much more functionality that a physical chip. Games from foreign regions can be played and games can be backed up and played from USB hard drive.

The fastest and cheapest way to modify your Wii is to post it to us Royal Mail Special Delivery. We can then Softmod it, Paypal invoice you and Special Deliver it straight back to you.

The address to post or bring it to is:

1144a Rochdale Road, Blackley, Manchester, M9 6FQ.

We recommend that you keep a Backup of the Wii NAND in case of data corruption.

Shipping costs and the legal standpoint

Playbackups offers Nintendo Wii Modchipping service by post throughout the UK. If your worried about sending your whole console and are confident enough to remove the Wii's Dvd drive, you can post that to us and we will Install the modchip and send it back by return of post. Just add £9.00 for the return postage.

If you're sending the Wii console, do not send any of the accessories, add £9.00 postage. Include your email address with the Nintendo Wii and we will email invoice you and post the console straight back to you.

For those who are a little unsure on the legal aspects - In the UK you are allowed to have 1 backup of every original game you own. To play this perfectly legal backup you require the installation of a Modchip, or Modified Firmware. We provide Modchip services for this purpose. On certain consoles the game region restriction is also defeated. This allows you to play legally purchased foreign games from different regions.

If you are worried that your ISP will block your internet for downloading backup games or films read here.

Buying backup games is not illegal, it is illegal to sell them, so - we do not sell copy games
