OK, long story short I had a 3.2E Wii that was great, due to money issues Ive sold it to another family member who for some odd reason doesnt want the extra bits and pieces on there. I need some advice on what to do: 1) Cant remember whether an option exists to format it from the Settings, but could I just format it and it will 'work' after it's done? 2) Can I update through System Update safely? I cant really remember what I've done to it as it was a year or so ago, I remember using Wanin's software to downgrade, Ive installed some custom IOS, but just dont want to have to fork out for another Wii if this one gets bricked. There's a couple of virginising guides on here that I can follow, but other threads that Ive read seem to indicate that if a higher firmware is installed, it will reset the IOS (aside from the custom ones), tbh as long as it can safely be updated to the latest firmware (as they dont want to play backups/homebrew) it doesnt matter to me at all if there's odd bits and pieces lurking on there, Ill just remove the channels, update it, and say it's done.
