Hi everyone I need a little help here I have an xtra wii laying around that is on 4.1u and softmodded from last year but cant play burnt disk
So I have someone thats interested in buying it but doesnt want the softmod anymore.

So is it ok just to update online through Nintendo to 4.3u and remove most of the hacks from the softmod?

Some people are real anal about a modded system.

since your wii is capable of playing backup discs from the disc channel, u have darkcorp installed. And darkcorp maxxes out the version numbers of the custom IOSs it installs, meaning that nintendo will never be able to update those IOSs.

Since the darkcorp installer/uninstaller is giving everyone problems, I would recommend u use ModMii's Wizard, tell it your wii is NOT a virgin. It will also ask you if you want to install a patched IOS236, say yes to this also (that IOS will have the version patch, allowing you to overwrite darkcorp with standard, unmodified IOSs). You can say no to everything else. This will help u uninstall darkcorp by overwriting it with official nintendo IOSs.

Afterwards, just disable priiloader hacks or uninstall it entirely (if applicable), remove the HBC and any other custom channels you may have installed (or just perform a system format through the Wii Menu).

If you leave bootmii and cIOSs installed on the Wii it will be impossible for the new owners even know they are installed without resoftmodding the console themselves.

Are you talking about 2 different Wii's now? You want to softmod one and unsoftmod the other one?

The guide specifically says:
Code:
Be careful not to install any additional wads that may have been previously saved in this folder (they may be safe, but I cannot say for sure).

also, it says "Hold + for 2 seconds" to select all the wads not "press + twice".

edit:
oooooh, I think I understand what your asking now... for example, the guide might say IOS60v6174 but the wad is called IOS60-64-v6174. Those are the same thing just different notation, so if that is the case, yes, it is safe to install those wads
