    A friend of mine is returning his Wii to the store he bought it from, and just in case he wants me (the cool guy who hacked it for him in the first place) to virginize it. Is there any way I can go about doing that?

    I've read several times here that you can simply update to 4.2 and then format the system, but I don't believe that for a second (considering how much shit that stirs up on every other firmware revision). Is there anything else I can do?

    @GameWinner: That is horribly outdated...

    Basically, just:

    * Remove cIOSCORP if its installed by using the uninstall package
    * Use AnyTitle Deleter to delete IOS250
    * Run Wad Manager and remove custom channels (Do NOT delete any IOSes or system menus)
    * Run Hackmii installer and uninstall Bootmii, HBC, DVDX
    * Update wii
    * (optional) Format wii

    This gets most (if not all) of it. The update takes care of the cIOSes (222,223,249) as well as preloader.

    could you not just use wad creator to create a wad of IOS250 and un-install it with wad manager instead of using ATD cause some people are scared of using ATD in case they delete something wrong and brick the Wii

    Yes you can. I just said ATD because it's typically easier to use vs. making a wad then uninstalling it.

    oi, I think he's running cIOSCORP 3.3 and I can't seem to locate an uninstall package for that one. Will 3.4's uninstall package suffice?

    EDIT: Found a cool tool called 'uncorp', that'll work, right?

    Uncorp will do. Just run it and let it do its thing.

    Can I just uninstall the only custom channel he has (Neogamma r7) using anytitledeleter? I can't find the original wad he used for it (actually, I think I did, but I'm getting errors when I try to uninstall it, maybe because I uninstalled IOS250 and replaced the other IOSes?).

    Thanks a whole lot, guys. All I've gotta do yet is uninstall Bootmii/HBC/etc.

    One last quicky question. How do I uninstall those using Hackmii, and how do I boot hackmii up using the HBC? I can't figure these ones out at all.

    Anyone? It's not as though I'm not grateful for the information I've already been given, it's just that this dude won't shut up (apparently, his CostCo warranty expires tomorrow so he'd like to get this done before closing time).

    Running wad manager, can that now delete all wads of the Wii, even if you dont have the wads in the wad folder on the SD card?

    nope.
    use any title deleter if you know the title id of the channel to get rid of it.

    just return the wii as it is, they dgaf.

    your going to probably end up bricking it instead of virginizing it if you dont know what we're talking about.

    You guys are talking about uninstalling wads. When I said I don't know what ya mean't, it's because I'm trying to uninstall BootMii, which is installed on boot2 and, last I checked, not a wad

    Can I simply uninstall DVDX and the HBC using AnyTitleDeleter?

    No run HackMii installer again, and you can select to uninstall them from there, make sense?? But be warned, that you have uninstalled bootmii, then u have no backup plan if anything goes wrong. Im not 100% sure what version of Hackmii u can use, or if V5 is ok to use??

    I ran HackMii installer again (using Bannerbomb, since I couldn't locate any other method) and it only gave me options to install HBC, DVDX, and BootMii, not to uninstall.

    At this point, I figure I'll just return it as is (or just delete the HBC through the Wii menu to get rid of all immediately visible traces), as xz said, it's not as though CostCo gives a shit.
