    Updating my homebrew channel to the latest update and officially updating my Wii to 4.3. I heard it will remove everything mod related except homebrew channel.

    If you update your Wii to 4.3, all homebrew will be deleted.

    I don't think it deletes everything, it just overwrites Homebrew Channel and it's actually a dangerous procedure if you're not 100% sure that you don't have a Korean Wii.

    So, do you want to virginize your Wii? it's difficult to make that 100% but formatting would be "enough".

    Can I mod it after I virginize it? If I can, then yes.

    Yes of course, but it is useless to delete the homebrew channel to then install it again, and the Wii with the format it won't have the homebrew channel, but if you have modifyed the IOS, they will keep the same.

    I'm not entirely sure if formatting removes stuff from all the slots or just the ones the Wii could normally fill out in its original state. My recommendation would be to uninstall all cIOS'es and installing a fresh firmware installation (*not* an automated update, and be sure to make NAND backups every step of the way. 4.3 is tricky and not really recommended, go 4.2, I've never had any problems with it).

    Wrong.
    Everything after 4.1 is AP.
    Just ask JoostinOnline.
    He convinced me to downgrade from 4.3 two years ago.

    Goto v4.1 if you plan on changing SysMenu version.
    Also OP, what is it you are trying to accomplish? If you just want to remove everything to reinstall cIOSs, just post a sysCheck here.

    Post a sysCheck. I will help.

    How can I uninstall all of cIOS'es? I think I installed a lot, and I don't have the installers anymore >_<

    You don't need the installers, you just need Multi-Mod-Manager or any other multitool and for the cumbersome ones you can use AnyTitleDeleter. It'd be nice if you posted a SysCheck so that we may see what's actually installed on the system. That, and is there any particular reason why you'd want a virgin Wii? Why not just re-mod with ModMii?
    Oh! I was convinced that wasn't implemented in 4.2. Fair enough, my memory about Wii modding is a bit cloudy. Guess 4.1 is indeed a better option.

    S***! The update just completed. This is what I'm trying to accomplish: http://gbatemp.net/threads/brawl-and-project-m-not-loading.369387/

    Should I downgrade?

    Ah okay. So you posted a sysCheck there. I will look at it on the other thread.
    As for "S***!" It's not a big deal. Just go ahead decide if you want to downgrade or not.

    Yes. 4.2 and 4.3 do nothing except add AP.

    If 4.2 and 4.3 are just for AP, then I'll downgrade. Thanks for the help, everyone.

    Yes. This would be the best choice.


    MMM is a wad manager... ModMii will download the appropriate IOS files and include MMM automatically.

    Erm... MMM isn't just a WAD Manager. Hence the name Multi-Mod Manager.

    What have you used it for? Sure it has functions from ATD, but does anyone use them? Not me :P
    The point I was trying to make is MMM won't pick the files he needs for him, while ModMii is noob friendly.
