    I am about to send my wii to nintendo to get it fixed. What is the best way to remove software that I have installed doing the softmod?

    If its bricked, then no need to bother.

    Otherwise, one way to do it (friend did it recently):

    * Remove any custom/pirated channels using their wads. DO NOT REMOVE IOS/SYSTEM MENUS!
    * If you use cIOSCORP: use the cIOSCORP uninstaller package.
    * If you use preloader: Remove by reinstalling the system menu (DO NOT UNINSTALL THE MENU!)
    * Use HackMii installer to remove Bootmii, DVDX, HBC.
    * Update the wii via official wifi update
    * Optionally format wii (I do not recommend this!)
    * Remove the SD card and send it in. Use a softmod guide like xzxero's when you get it back from Big N.
