Its also called a mistake/glitch. The official OCG rulings no longer mention that Horus LV 8 and Armed LV 7 can't be summoned by LV Modulation, SilentMag lv 8 should be the same. Its even been removed from TCG for the most part & the Tips section encourage it.

Doesn't mean jack shit if that ruling is no longer official. There is an official OCG ruling that states that this applies to all Nomis and Extra Deck Monsters in General. They are not going to make an individual ruling for each of these, especially when in the OCG there are more cards than just Level Modulation that Summon from the GY and ignore Summoning Conditions.

I know right. I used "Dark World Lightning" to discard a my "ARMED DRAGON LV 7" so I can use "LEVEL MODULATION", but it didn't work. I think there is something wrong with the game.

While there isn't a ruling for Level Modulation in the official database, there is one for Level Down!?, which is functionally identical for this purpose.

Ignoring the Summoning conditions doesn't ignore the fact a monster had to be properly Summoned first when Summoning it from the GY/banished.
In episode 61, look up in wiki. Thier is proof that this card is not working the way intended to be. Here are the text from Chazz Duel.

Turn 3: Chazz
Chazz draws "Graceful Charity" and subsequently activates it to draw three cards and discard two. Chazz then activates "Level Modulation" to allow Sartorius to draw two cards and allow Chazz himself to Special Summon "Armed Dragon LV7" (2800/1000) from his Graveyard in Attack Position, ignoring the summoning conditions. Chazz then Tributes "Armed Dragon LV7" in order to Special Summon "Armed Dragon LV10" (3000/1000) in Attack Position.

This has to be a bug. This card won't summon either SM lvl 4 or 8, just tried it. I see no reason this can't work, it says on the card "Ignores summoning conditions" so this is a bug and needs to be fixed

Just read a comment explaining the bug, and why it won't work for Silent Magician, Armed Dragon, etc. But it works fine on Ultimate Insect, so I say again, but and it needs to be fixed.

Ultimate Insect is not a Nomi -_-
The properly way to use this cards is as follow:
1.SM lvl 4 must have 5 counters
2.Activate SM lvl 4 to SP lvl 8 from hand/deck
3.If Lvl 8 is in the graveyard,u may use
Level Modulation if steps 1 and 2 were follow
This card doesn't work at all! If there are hidden rules then put them on the card description. How negligent can someone be?
An "LV" monster that normally cannot be Special Summoned except by the method in its text CANNOT be Special Summoned from the Graveyard with "Level Modulation" unless it has been previously Special Summoned by the correct procedure. The "ignore the Summoning conditions" text allows for these monsters to be Special Summoned only after they have been properly Summoned by their own effect. This applies to "Horus the Black Flame Dragon LV8", "Armed Dragon LV7", "Silent Swordsman LV7", "Silent Magician LV8", and "Winged Kuriboh LV10".
