    I did a bit of searching and read some stuff about AnyTitleDeleter, but I can't get it to run on my Wii. Tells me it can't collect titles, or something. (error ret-1).

    Everything I read about it was from 2008, So I'm wondering if there have been any new developments I'm just unaware of or anything?

    ATD should be able to do it, what IOS are u selecting to use from the start

    fyi, be very careful with ATD

    u should also be able to uninstall a wad of those channels using a wad manager

    There is no real point in deleting them though (other than not seeing them in the wii menu). They do not free up space when deleted.

    FYI, removing those channels will not free up any space on your Wii. From what I have read, those channels are in a reserved portion of the NAND for system channels and IOSs.

    Yeah, To be honest I just don't want them on my menu anymore.

    EDIT: Xflak; It doesn't give me the choice to choose which IOS, it just boots up. (Oh, and sorry for not stating: I'm using AnyTitleDeleter DB.)

    Try ATD MOD (that may not be the name...the one by RedSquirrel, found on the ATD WiiBrew page). It let's you select the IOS.

    MAJOR EDIT: I got the updated version to choose IOS. I tried 249, 36, and 202. No matter which one I choose, I get the following error: Can't Get Count of Titles! (ret-1).

    Any idea why this is happening?

    because you used base 57 for 202 and 249? this is the same reason that wiixplorer cannot list or launch channels with the new 202 installed for wiimc.

    just install ANY IOS that has ES_Identify and it should be able to list all your titles. it should also be able to delete these useless channels. to delete IOSes, you will need ES_Identify and the FS permissions patch. the easiest and safest is to just use dopmii and select 36 or 38 ( not the newest version ). then install that to some arbitrary spot above 200, and say yes to all 3 patches. then use that in ATD and you will be able to delete whatever you want. you cat even use that IOS in ADT and delete that IOS when you are done if you dont want it sitting on your wii.

    Thanks for your help, but to be honest, that seems a little but confusing to me, haha. But from the looks of it, it looks like you really know your shit, so I'm down to give it a shot.

    Its not that confusing. Just load dop-Mii, choose an IOS that accepts fake signatures ("has trucha bug") and then choose to install IOS36 to a random high slot (e.g. 236) that isn't in use, and apply all three patches. Then load ATD and use that IOS.

    Would it not be possible to move them to another page of the Channel if you have space? Not tried moving them that far before, so I wouldn't know myself. Then rather than deleting them you could just move them out of the way.

    I want them gone 'cause the first 3 pages are all forwarder's to ISO's for games, and the last page will be all homebrew stuff.

    Couldn't you just choose IOS38 when you boot up Ant Title Deleter?

    Doesn't matter, I found an easier way to do it. I used Dop-Mii to uninstall those channels (which I had no idea it could do.)

    Problem solved. Thanks for all your help!!!!
