    I want to remove all hacks, applications and put the lastest system update to my wii....
    In other words.. I want to leave it all legal and with no problems of evade system updates and install new cios to run new games...

    My problem is.... I have the 4.1u installed and I put the preloader v0.29 by crediar (3/31/2009) and I heard that is difficult to remove... I doesn't have any other software for preload the system menu...

    My question is.. I need to remove first the preloader and then make the system update to leave the wii as new or only with the system update is ok...

    Another question... I have buyed games on the wii, this games will remain or it will be deleted?

    I hope some of you can help me

    If you need any other information about installed apps or other stuff please tell me

    Thank you all

    Running a system update should remove all cIOS's (except for 250), uninstall the HBC unless you updated it, and remove preloader.

    Gambia, The
    first of all you are clearly not from the USA, so why don't you change that country in your settings to the one you are actually from?

    Second of all it would be good to know what hacks you have and what hacks you want to have removed and why...

    If you only want to get rid of preloader, just reinstall system menu 4.1U. Or use priiloaders uninstaller. For everything else we would need more information.

    First.. I don't know where to change the country... I from Mexico...

    I have the preloader v0.29
    usb loader but it doesn't work since I update the cIOS to run metroid other m
    some emulators and wad manager and other apps (not important)

    I don't know too much from all the cIOS or all other hacks or updates... I don't have too much time to investigate about how to keep updated my wii... the last update was when the 4.1u update was released...

    If you know specific versions of software to remove some hacks please tell me which ones are needed..

    Why I want to clear my wii from all hacks is because I don't have much time play and to keep me with the last releases of the updates and when a game that I really want I try to buy it...

    What hacks I want to remove... ALL OF THEM... and when Nintendo release a new update I can do the system update with no problem

    I have some games of the VC purchased if I can keep it it could be great... but if no.... no problem....

    Thank you all

    Little OT. Having HBC installed is illegal in Your country?

    Post a syscheck, at least then we will know what you need to remove as far as IOSs go.
    You should also know this is called revirginizing a wii, and instructions can be found at
    It is dangerous though to say the least and is recommended against (but afaik is the only way to remove all traces).

    As long as you don't delete the title's tickets (with ATD for example) there's no worries.

    my advice would be;
    1. install bootmii as boot2 and make a nand backup of your hacked wii.
    2. uninstall hbc
    3. run nintendos update
    4. (optional) make another backup

    bootmii is the ultimate brick protection. With it, your wii will never brick.
