    My brother (with down syndrome) keeps messing up my Miis. I have tried hiding the channel by moving it to another screen-thingy (the thing you use + or - button to switch), but he figured that out. However, if there isn't a way currently to do it (by hacking, I mean), could someone get me started with it (I already know C++, so don't give me that)?

    I believe if you have system menu 4.0+ you can use the SD Mii Channel and then delete the mii channel using ATD

    Yep, you can just delete the channel, Miis will still continue to work.

    I'm also interested in this, so that I can hide the Mii channel from younger kids. Would it be possible to make it into a hidden channel (like the EULA), and then launch it with Waninkoko's Channel Launcher?

    I'm not sure if Waninkoko's Channel Launcher lets you launch hidden channels, but you should be able to make it hidden by changing the titleID from 00010002-HACA to 00010008-HACA.

    Why not just back the Mii's up to the Wiimote? Or is that not the same as having the original in the Mii Channel when you copy it back?

    Because you find a Mii is messed up in a game that doesn't support getting Mii's from a Wii Remote, you have to go to the Mii Channel, delete the Mii, put the original on, then start up the game again.

    It's just way easier if they aren't messed up in the first place, mirite?
