    Yeah I have a quick question. I have installed several things onto my Wii one of which is something called "systemmenu v289". I want to get rid of systemmenu as I now have all the other cool methods for getting Homebrew on my Wii...


    ...I just lost all the documentation on how to from a recent HDD crash.

    I was thinking about maybe doing a factory restore... but that seems kind of risky. Anyone have any suggestions?

    DO NOT DELETE SYSTEM MENUS. even if you don't use a system menu (not sure why you wouldn't) you still need it, otherwise the wii wont have anything to load when you turn it on!

    I think formatting the wii of all the save data, channels, etc should return it back to factory setting. If not then upgrading the system menu should. That wont work if your already on the latest system menu(4.2). Good luck.

    if you have bootmii as boot2, you will get the fastest results with comex's nand formatter and a couple wads.
