    Traces are left in the play logs one way or another.

    One also needs to uninstall if he or she wants to install it again.

    I've found that as long as you have the same game from the same region as the one you used to install, the uninstall should work.

    I'm really starting to get pissed off at these people...

    Do a search. I've posted how to do this at least TEN times(not an exaggeration).

    Why must you people be so lazy and find it necessary to make a thread, when the search takes less time?


    Edit: Also, regarding the play logs: It only keeps track of the last 10 channels and everything else you've done that day goes to "Other". So, use the calendar, go back to a day you've used homebrew and clear it, if you're really that paranoid.

    Umm, ok...yeah.

    1) You don't need the original WAD, you can use any WAD.

    2) The Title ID is all you need, and that can be attained by using the Title Lister or by doing an FS dump and a hex editor.

    3) Duh.... but even if you did, you can't remove them fully without the WAD.


    Do a search, quit being lame.

    That's not it.


    1) Get any WAD, it doesn't have to be the one you used originally. The smaller the better.

    2a) Use the Title Database: http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Title_Database

    2b) Use Title Lister/FS Dump and write down the Title IDs that correspond to the console of the title you want to remove.

    3) Hex edit the WAD and change the Title ID to the one you need to remove.

    4) Run WAD Manager and it'll uninstall the ticket.

    Format that mother! That'll delete everything, even the current update! you'll go back to firmware 1.0, and backups will even play without a mod chip!

    Just download whatever it is you want to uninstall regardless of where you got it from originally. Make sure it's the same region and uninstall as if it were the original. That worked for me.

    That doesn't work for custom WADs and I'm pretty sure he already thought of that.

    Do a title lister of all the titles installed on your Wii, and find out which ones are the custom ones.
    Then simply get ANY wad file, and change the ticket ID for the one you wish to remove. It doesn't need signing or anything.

    Is there an echo in here?


    I already posted instructions on how to do it. If you're just looking to raise your post count, go somewhere else.
