    So im about to downgrade from 3.3 to 3.2 for the sake of installing StarFall, after that is done, and hoping the Backup Gamma, DVDx and everything keep working, im gonna clean up the wii and remove the stuff i no longer need

    so, before i go to Wad manager and uninstall something crucial and brick my Wii, is there any application that i can use to delete files which will prevent me from doing something stupid? like completely blocking the option to delete it?

    Edit: also, how many versions of StarFall are there? if more than 1

    if you need to delete stuff off your Wii do ti thru the Wii Settings, do not mess aroud with homebrew to delete stuff, unless you have 250usd in your pocket and they are not necessary to you...!!! [​IMG]

    Someone used any title deleter last week and now he has a lovely white paperweight

    Its an amazing program , but if you have to ask about it your not ready to use it. If your not 100% sure dont delete it is a golden rule - moving from that leads to shiney new paperweights

    Huh? Who bricked with anytitle deleter? I'd be fairly surprised if someone did... though yeah I still wouldn't mess with it unless you have a specific reason, like say removing a custom channel you lost the wad for or removing system channels like weather/shop/whatever.

    But what kind of stuff are you talking about removing, Shinra? Delete savegames through the Wii data management. You can either also remove custom channels through data management or uninstall them with the wads you put them on there with in the first place, the latter being preferred.

    i wanna delete some VC games i dont have the wad for anymore, mainly My Life as a King since i didnt get the one with the full dlc included, and now regardless of deleting and reinstalling i can't get the full DLC

    that and, if it's safe to, remove any unused CIOS, if it's risky i wont do that tho

    why dont you try the restore option from the wii menu ? I guess it should reset your wii to factory settings and then you can proceed to re-install everything...just my 2 cents, I never needed to do that

    One of the guys on wiibrew was trying to install the multicios pack and decided he did it wrong and wanted a fresh install
    so he loaded any title deleter and deleted all of his IOS's - including ios30 - full brick and no coming back from that one.
