    impossible to do so
    see explanation here: http://gbatemp.net/t207126-modmii-for-wind...t&p=3028841

    the next best thing would be to delete any custom channels u have installed (like the HBC), run the darkcorp uninstaller only if u had it installed in the first place, and that's about it, u can always perform an official update via nintendo too if u like

    What I want to know are why so many people are worried about restoring their Wiis. Who cares if its been hacked, just delete the channels you dont want.

    What's weirder is that they're wanting to 'virginise' a Wii after they intentionally wanted to mod it in the first place. Your Wii will continue to function as long as you don't update, and there are so many methods of grabbing latest IOS files to get the best compatibility now that there is literally no point in updating now. Nintendo gives you a new feature for the console? Grab the IOS file with ModMii.

    As said above by XFlak, it is impossible to remove all the traces Nintendo can find (and looks for), so there is no real reason in trying, except stuff like tricking other people.

    EDIT: As someone pointed out to me, there are 2 ways that should make it possible to 'virginize' the Wii, but method 1 requires a NAND backup before you did anything except installing bootMii into boot2, an old boot1 to be able to do so and boot2 must be older than v4. And method 2 requires a NAND programmer or something similar. And if you know how to use and have such stuff you should also be able to repair you Wii, save for spare parts.
