    [​IMG] tried searching, but was unable to find a clear simple answer.

    I´ve removed all channels for now except this one - homebrewchan_installer.nolimits.elf

    As you can see it was an .elf file, and not a .wad. Did installing this create tickets?

    Is just erasing this through the Wii´s data management enough?

    that is just a installer, it didn't create a ticket unless you installed the channel.

    Then the ticket will still be there.

    I remember hearing on #wiidev that the WAD is integrated into the ELF.

    There is a wad file for the HomeBrew Channel which can be used in conjuction with the Uninstaller Elf to fully remove the channel created by the Elf you used (You can of course install from the wad file also).

    ??? I ran the .elf and it installed the homebrew channel. Used it for a while now, but will be upgrading.

    This does mean that it was installed, or?

    (edit)

    Damn, you guys are fast. I´ll try using another .wad. If that won´t work is there a way to extract the .wad from the .elf file?

    Thanx you guys!!! 2X at Kairi, the link worked!!

    Now I´m glad that I did ask. I could´ve googled a hundred years, and still not find the answer I was looking for.

    Forgive me if my question seems to be ignorant or common knowledge, but how exactly do I use the file Kairi posted to remove channels?

    This is for a Wii that my brother got modded by an installer, who took it upon himself to install "Super Mario Bros 2" and "Metroid". So I have not even familiarized myself totally with the process of putting these games on a Wii, as such I am even more troubled with the task of removing the channels and subsequent tickets.

    Any help is appreciated.

    That file is specific to something else.

    To remove your channel there are a few things you´re going to have to get.

    You´ll need waduninstall, and probably wadinstall tools. http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=85058

    Unless the guy installed a homebrew channel (a channel with a black screen), You´ll need a copy of Zelda, and the Twilight hack installer. http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=83479

    You´ll also need either an sd card, or a usbgecko. And a compatable GC controlled.

    On top of that you will need a copy of the specific wad for each of the games. At first it seems complicated, but it´s not, once you´ve done the process once.

    If all that is too much, have the guy remove them for you.

    Thanks for the detailed reply. Sounds simple enough and shouldn't be a problem at all for me to uninstall them.
