    Has anyone ever tested it? The idea has been brought up countless amount of times but nobody has ever done it. Is it worth losing all the save files (especially the ones that can't be copied to SD) and VC games an thighs like Opera.

    See that hole in your wall?
    I'm not 100% positive, but I'm pretty sure that will revert the firmware as well.

    Meaning you have to update again and then just end up with dual channel again.

    If you have VC you can re download them from the Wii Shop channel, i doubt it goes to originial firmware. but if it does that is good then you can do the 15 % trick

    If "Firmware" updates are stored in the same way as save games and downloadable content like channels/VC Games, then there is something very wrong.
    This should NOT revert the firmware to an older version.

    Pretty sure that means virtual console channels, and other downloadable ones such as internet channel, doubt you'll be able to delete your double channels, and I'm sure people have tried before

    Wouldn't it make sense to test something like this instead of making a thread title as bold as this, despite people having done this and confirmed it not to work?

    doesn't work. I formatted my wii once when i got wiikey and i had double channels before it from mp3. And they didn't disappear.
    You can always try by yourself if you want.

    Wont work.
    As the channels are added into the firmware.
    You cannot format the firmware.

    >>As the channels are added into the firmware.

    Hmm...interesting discussion. I've gotten my hands on a NTSC-J wii set with wiikey and it has got 3 weather & 3 news channels (2 dupes which apparently do not work..)

    Are we able to downgrade the firmware and reupdate again? My NTSC-J is running fw 3.1J (when I initialise the wifi, it connects straightaway to Nintendo website, and displayed the firmware updating [of which i switched off my wifi connection])

    Should I update the firmware (i know there are no revision numbers, so it's kinda hard to know what firmware it'd be..)

    Has anyone encountered the similar situation as me?

    Cheers!

    You can NOT remove double channels. Just move them out of the screen they are harmless on their own.

    Gambia, The
    I don´t get what you have against the double channels.
    I mean who needs all the free sppace in wii menu if you have a wiikey you´ll probably use emulators
    instead of using the virtualconsole.
    And personaly i think it looks cool to have the japanes wetherchannel with all the japanes
    signs, it makes it look more geekie [​IMG]

    Anyway sonner or later the homebrew community will find a way to delete your doublechannels so just relax [​IMG]

    Well not so easy..
    The Channels are recorded into firmware.
