    The best way to do this would be to format everything, re-install the official IOS and then possible to an official update. If you are going to keep homebrew, be aware that many of the prjects now are all based around the cIOS modules, so you may have a hard time not actually installing them again.

    Just go to the wii settings and then just choose update. That should make everything fine. Just delete any hombrew channels and such and try not use any applications that involve any cIOS as it will be re-installed.
