I want to sell my Wii U, and i would like to remove all hacks and restore it to factory settings. What is the safest way to do this?

Can't say for sure, it has been a while since I hacked it. I know I have Haxchi and Homebrew Launcher, plus a bunch of games installed to my home screen.

You can easily just format your Wii U as long as you don't use CBHC. Do you see any autobooting info on your gamepad when you start up?

No I never set it up for cold boot, I run Haxchi manually. Do I just run a regular factory reset?

Am I better off trying to sell it hacked?

if you have cbhc installed you need to remove it through the installer then you can just go into settings and restore

You can just perform a facotry reset via system settings.
Again, make sure no CBHC is installed, or a birck will occur.

Formatting the WIIU will erase the "NDS Game" which is haxchi, as well as the channels installed. so just do et ;D
