Hi there guys, how it's is going? It's been a long, long time since my last activity here. I've had my Wii since launch date (initial white one) that I've been actively using and hacking until 2012 and then it went in a drawer... until know! I'm pretty much OCD and it's been so long since I used it that I would really like to clean it up from the things that I've done in the past (such as deleting unneeded IOS, Weather Channel, etc.), to put it in a "pristine" state and THEN hack it again with minimal interference (i.e., without touching anything that's not necessary) and start all over; as if it was a new, freshly hacked Wii. To sum it up, I've left it in 2012 with the System Menu 4.1 version, deleted several stubbed and unneeded IOS with AnyTitle, did some patches with StartPatch, installed cIOS for USB Loader GX; of course I had the Homebrew Channel and, most importantly, I have Bootmii installed as boot2 with a valid NAND backup from those days. So... fast forward to today, what I would like to do (just for the sake of it) is to update the System Menu to 4.3; hoping that it would reinstall every IOS I deleted and delete every IOS I installed, and then hack it with LetterBomb. There's a couple of things that I'm thinking on so: 1) Should I directly update the firmware from the Wii Menu itself, via wireless and Nintendo servers? Would that achieve what I wrote above? (a factory-clean-state Wii to work on). Or should I update in some other way? I've read that updating via Nintendo would overwrite boot2 at the time, but since boot1 can't be patched, I'd be able to reinstall bootmii as boot2 aftewards. Is that correct? 2) Just writing to myself for future reference (), I remember from 2012 that I'd have to remove the applied patches from StartPatch before updating, so they don't screw up the NAND. 3) After this update to 4.3 is done; again for the sake of it, I'd format the System Menu (to clear all previous "Activity Log" - or whatever was called back then, that kept track of games played) and start fresh. 4) I'd install HackMii, The Homebrew Channel and BootMii as boot2 with the LetterBomb hack. Then install the needed cIOS for USB Loader GX and some updated apps (that I haven't even searched yet) to install/delete IOS, Wad installers and such. In conclusion, can you help me out pointing me if I'm missing something here, if something would go wrong following this procedure and if this will actually achieve what I want to do: to get a fresh Nintendo Wii without any of the crap from the past and without a locked boot2, so I could install BootMii there and follow along? Thanks greatly in advance and I hope I explained myself well for you to understand me. Please let me know what you think! Regards. PS: I still have to apply the exact same procedure to my PlayStation Portable and PlayStation 3, but I won't bother you with that here.
