    Hey guys,

    I kinda regret softmodding the Wii, is there any way to reverse it back to factory default but then 100% factory default?

    I have a black Wii 4.2E when bought and I did a NAND backup.

    Thanks in advance

    afaik there is no way to do that - everything leaves traces nintendo can find

    i woudnt bother most things dont get in your way
    except really stupid things like replacing all iso with cios (darkcrap,...)
    updateing should help but ymmv

    closest to clean might be possible with this - but you need some prerequisites

    -old boot1 for bootmii-boot2
    -clean nand dump (no mods installed except bootmii)
    -old boot2 so a update will replace it

    if you miss any one dont bother with the procedure

    -restore backup with bootmii and run update (yes thats all)

    the only things possibly left are traces of the exploit you used and the hackmii-installer

    edit: boot1 and 2 might be a problem with black wiis - sorry
    installing hbc before makeing the backup too

    The only consoles that can be restored to a truely mod free state are the older Wiis that are able to have BootMii as Boot2 that had a backup made before anything was installed, other than BootMii.

    So, not many Wiis exist in that sort of state. You're out of luck, and your Wii will always have traces of Homebrew.
    Homebrew will not interfere in any way in normal day to day use of your Wii, and the only time it could cause you issues is if you send your Wii in for repairs without fully bricking the NAND.

    Thanks a lot for the replies. This should be enough, so far the Wii is still working fine.
