    What kind of answer do you want? It is as night_chrono said, if you format your Wii it won't leave any traces of you're hacks. Of course, the VC- and WiiWare-software you bought can be reinstalled via an SD-card or the Wii Shopping Channel.

    Maikel that is almost correct. After format you must redownload the software, you cant just copy them back from SD. However, software which you downloaded from the shop channel can be redownloaded for free.

    ummm guys, all the hacked tickets will still be installed after "format".

    dont bother formatting, learn about anytitle deleter
    and use it, as well as any built in uninstallers (dvdx, cIOS clone, etc.)

    formatting erases Disc tickets, all saves, Downloaded gamefiles (minus the tickets), miis and their data, system settings, eula acceptance, and possibly some updated system channels.

    the dvdx channel might even still be installed after a format, im not gonna test it though.

    NAND has "limited" rewrites, dont waste them doing nothing useful

    you should ask yourself a different question, who will tear down your wii to the last bit to see if you hacked it and/or installed illegal content on it ? Nobody!

    a simple format would be more than engough, simply deleting the illegal and/or homebrew stuff would be enough.
