    I heard that WADs aren't fully uninstalled unless you use WADmanager to uninstall, or some other program that I forgot the name of.. I've been deleting the WADs that I don't use, just by the sysmenu. Did I do wrong? Is there a way I can remove any left over crap from those WADs? WADmanager only lets you uninstall if you have the WAD at hand, but if i removed it, wouldn't that cause problems? [​IMG] Someone help my headaches.

    probably this was already answered in another topic, but i'll answer it anyway...
    the only difference between uninstalling with sysmenu or wad manager is that wad manager also removes the game ticket, so nintendo can't see that you have a game you didn't paid or a channel they do not recognize...like a forwarder i think...
    but if i'm not mistaken, nintendo as this moment, does not verifies it yet.

    Deleting through the system menu still leaves the ticket of the WAD on your system so no they aren't fully removed. You would need to either get the wad's that you have installed again and uninstall using those or use AnyTitleDeleter if you know the specific title ID's of the WAD's you installed. If you don't then you should not touch AnyTitleDeleter as you could possibly delete something that your Wii needs if you don't know what you're deleting.

    Hi guys, so instead of opening another thread, I have a similar question:

    I have some games that I run from the SD, in order to uninstall them with wad manager, do I need to copy them back to the Wii NAND, or would be enough just deleting the game from the SD and then let wad manager removes only the ticket and save ??

    Thanks!!
