Hey guys, I'm writing this topic to make sure if I'm safe or not to do some things so here's my case: Some things date back... A month ago my launch-day Wii started acting funny. It had the following: HBC, 3.4 WAD Fixes, IOS60 patched, and then later updated to 4.0 (in that order). The problems with it were weird. First, WiiConnect24 Standby Connection would freeze my Wii to a black start up screen. I'm convinced this is a heating problem because I would leave it like that for a while due to being pounded with school work and a busy schedule. One time I even put it on WiiConenct24 standby for a HALF hour, after cooling down my Wii, and it would still freeze it on start up. The 2nd problem was that my Zelda OOT VC game (bought from Shop Channel) just randomly stopped working and would go to a black screen when chosen. It wouldn't even erase correctly, it would be stuck on "Erasing.." forever so I'd have to turn off the Wii manually. It would be gone but the blocks would be the same, when I tried to redownload it straight to an SD Card, the Wii froze and ultimately got the black screen brick for good. I also had installed the update from Animal Crossing: City Folk in November when it came out (way after I installed HBC and before my 3.4 WAD Fixes). I heard this update is IOS38, rumored for Wii Speak, and contains fix for the fake signing bug. My friend says his game works fine without it. Fast Forward to Today.. My Wii was fixed by Nintendo repairs, same Wii, same serial #. The receipt says they fixed "Main Circuit Board" and "Disc Drive Mechanism". It was on 3.3u but I updated through Nintendo to 4.0 due to advancements in soft modding for it. I used BannerBomb/HackMii to install HBC and DVDx. I then downgraded IOS35, installed IOS35 by WAD, installed CIOSv7 by WAD, installed patched IOS60, and upgraded to CIOS36rev10. The Wii had my Wii Shop Channel linked to it with my club nintendo account, and I was able to redownload my games and channels I used to have. What's weird though is that today I discovered AC:CF doesn't ask for a disc update so my Wii wasn't completely wiped I believe. I wonder if my Wii still had it's stuff installed, or if they added it. Which is weird because I have a new Wii Console Code and it was wiped to 3.3u when I got it back. I'm curious now on the following: 1. If I was able to install all that stuff successfully after a Nintendo repair, am I safe? 2. Does it conflict with anything that my Wii doesn't ask for a disc update on my AC:CF game, that it possibly is still installed? I thought it disables the fake signing bug so how was I able to downgrade/install IOS35? This confuses me. Something tells me they didn't completely wipe everything off of the Wii. 3. If bannerbomb/hackmii says BootMii can be installed, should I do it? I'm not sure if they LU64'ified my Wii or not, again if I was able to do all the things above, is my Wii safe? 4. Am I safe to install/uninstall WADs, and do backups? 5. Just wanna make sure if there's anything I can do to figure out, or if you guys can verify, that they didn't put contents of LU64 type stuff into my repaired launch Wii.
