    Hi i was wondering: I softmodded my wii and did a mess during the installation (works fine and stuff) and I want to do a cleanup or a fresh install... is it safe to format it? or is there a way of doing a fresh install?

    The best thing to do is download ModMii and do a fresh softmod. Tell it your Wii is a virgin. Anything old or incorrectly installed will be overwritten/updated. Formatting could just make things worse.

    fyi, ModMii uses different wording now, so telling people to tell ModMii their wii is a virgin could be a little confusing :D

    @OP, just run ModMii, type "I agree", then launch the ModMii Wizard by typing "W", the rest is self explanatory

    Hey, hey...not so discriminating, please.

    You should tell modmii that your wii is a free spirit that doesn't want to commit to a single partner. Unfortunately, she has put her trust in not-so-trustworthy partners such as cioscorp, pimp my wii and/or various wads of unknown origin. Most, but not all, has happened without proper protection from bootmii or priiloader, because hey...you know...it just gets in the way of having fun. :P



    But on-topic: it's already told more or less, but...the "wii format memory" option in the setting at best removes all unneeded things. In some cases, a firmware update does a bit of cleaning, but that's usually a half-assed job as well. Modmii simply solves this sort of thing GOOD. :)
