Hi,

I bought a Nintendo Wii with Wiikey back in 2007, in 2014 I installed sofmod on it. Now I need to keep the softmod but clean up everything else(selling it). The question is how this is done?

The Wii got a installed SD card and a USB harddrive connected. Installed software is :

- Wii Mod 3.2
- WiiMC
- Priiloader shortcut
- Confugurable USB Loader
- Hackmii installer
- Priiloader installer
- SaveGame Manager GX
- SysCheck HD

On homescreen I got couple of channels(Nintendo 64 games), how do I remove them?

When running Confugurable USB Loader it shows a couple of Nintendo Wii games, how do I remove them? guessing this is done on a PC with some kind of software?

How do I remove any Nintendo account on the console, even those that is connected to the store?

Thanks for helping.

If that's what's visible in the HBC, they're not "installed", just "placed on the SD/USB in the right place" :)

The official way (settings > data management > channels), it will leave the tickets installed but they're harmless, if you want those gone too use an homebrew like bushing's version of AnyTitle Deleter
The console also has a file called uid.sys which records the titleID of every disc or channel ever used, it's harmless too but you can't restore a Wii to "like new" status without serious and risky effort (at least for certain definitions of "like new", most people indeed don't care)

Those too are on your SD/USB storage, just don't include them - they aren't a standard accessory of the console in the first place :)

How do I remove any Nintendo account on the console, even those that is connected to the store?
Wii doesn't have accounts in the common meaning of the word, if you want to remove Wii Shop licenses open the store > settings > delete account > type the serial number and follow the instructions

I would just use the Priiloader installer to uninstall it then factory reset the console, this will leave any CIOS installed and remove the HBC, but they're easy for the new owner to reinstall updated versions of (and you won't become free tech support for them ;) )

Great! So all I really have to do to be able to sell it legaly is to remove the harddirve and and clear the SD from any backups that might be there. And also remove the channels from the data manager?

I have never bought any games online on this console.
