Recently my family has desired the use of Netflix on my wii, however due to the wifi ban, granted to me by my dumbass brother and his friend, I am unable to access and use the service through my wii. I've read online that reformatting can lift the ban, however I have a couple of concerns before I choose to do so. I know how to backup all of my saves, channels, etc, and reload them to my wii (excluding any saves for wifi games) so losing data isn't an issue. My main concern is whether or not I will even be ABLE to access my homebrew channel and cIos again. My wii's disc drive has long since burnt out, and thus I would be fully dependent on the bannerbomb hack to get it set back up, and allow me to use my usbloader for gaming once again. My current system menu is 4.0u. tl;dr: Is there any risk in formatting my softmodded 4.0u wii with broken disc drive, and will doing so lift my wifi ban? Thanks for your help.
