    Hi, I'm getting the deadly 110321 error code and I decided format my Wii, but before I'd wish to know some things:
    -Do I lost my downloads rights?
    -What will be the firmware after update (launch Wii)?
    -My Wii has bootmii installed as boot, do I lost bootmii if I format?
    -What's is the IOS that allows launch non official channels from SD?
    -Any other tip?

    Thanks =)

    Download rights? From the shop channel? No, those stay.
    Firmware is the same one you were on.
    No, formatting the Wii doesn't remove any IOSes or boot1/2. It won't remove any errors related to bad IOSes either.
    Depends on what your system menu IOS. You only need the trucha patch to launch unofficial wads from SD from the Wii Menu if I recall.
    Other tips? Don't bother, unless you really, really need to. You can solve just about any problem without formatting. :P

    Ok, everything was better than expected, I think my Wii can access to the channels a little faster, probably because I don't have a long ass log in the board taking space =P

    Thanks for the help people :)
