How does the big N handle HBC when you send your Wii for repair?

    my wii's totally bricked and I'm thinking of doing the Nintendo repair.

    Does anyone have experience with having Nintendo repair your wii that has HBC and hacked VC on it?
    Do they format your harddrive?
    or do you think they'll delete homebrew channel and update it to 4.0?

    So basically what has been your experience with the big N repairs?

    I had a banner brick last year and didn't have starfall, so I send my wii to get repair. My wii had the HBC and some VC wads installed, so i was worried too. When i got it back all they did was reinstall 3.2 on it and this was back when 3.4 had been out for awhile. They use a third party to do the repairs, so i'm guessing they don't care what you do to it.
