I'll spare you guys all the details as to why I feel the need to un-mod my console, just that I do. From what I understand, reformating or downloading a nintendo update will just brick it. Is there some safe way to unmodulated everything?

If it helps to know, I'm on boormii v.29, which I installed using bannerbomb, following all the guidelines for doing so from here.

Sorry, that's supposed to say bootmii. Anyway, a normal firmware update from nintendo should un-mod the whole thing without bricking it?

The long version of the story invokes moving in with people who have much higher moral standards than myself.

I'd leave the totally homebrew stuff on there then, mplayer is worth having the HBC on there alone, just get rid of any loader channels, preloader set up to boot to a USB loader?, and the loader apps from the SD. You don't undo everything you've done and there will be nothing to show it's modded. Well unless they nosey around your console in a bad way. But with such highly developed moral standards they should respect your privacy.

You'll still have to stop playing the "backups" you have, but don't lose all the legitimate advantages to having a softmodded wii.

    I'd like to find a power strip and HDMI selector built in 1 unit, so I can select which game system I want, and will switch to that hdmi, and power on that plug/power supply only, so don't have all game systems powered all the time, but can't find anything like. May just have to make something myself.
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Maybe start a kick starter page and sell them, yea right. Big N would prob C&D me, not anything Big N related, but just because that's what they do nowdays. Then come out with they own in a year or so.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Xdqwerty, Nice. Which operating system are you installing?
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    @SylverReZ, windows 10 and some linux distro like linux mint
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    dualbooth
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Xdqwerty, Yeah, I'd recommend having another OS just in-case you want to play games.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    At least Linux doesn't contain spyware than what Windows has.
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    @SylverReZ, cuz of lag?
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Xdqwerty, No. Whenever you use the internet on Windows, Microsoft collects personal data and installs bloatware that isn't necessarily needed, such as Edge.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    Speaking of which
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    @SylverReZ,
    I recall @impeeza mentioned some trick about not having bloatware when installing windows where you set up your country to "world" or smh like that

  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    Yes, you can debloat the operating system, but in some cases for me it just reinstalls them.

    @SylverReZ,
    I also recall my brother downloded a "non bloated" version of windows 11 on his pc

  • impeeza @ impeeza:
    @Xdqwerty yes, when you are installing Windows on the first steps you are asked for your current location, you MUST to select «international» so no bloatware is installed, because the bloatware is location based. if this night I have some time I will setup a VM and take screenshots.
