    I have absolutely no clue what you mean, and I read the title multiple times.

    But if you mean "Format Wii System Memory," no.

    Eh god dammit I dunno what to do, IOS installer isn't working and there's no way to downgrade, looks like I'm gonna have to sell my wii and buy one with the right firmware.

    Downgrading isn't really recommended anymore. You can hack a wii regardless of firmware version. Thee are guides like: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=171901 to do it.

    There is no need to sell your wii.

    If by "IOS Installer" you mean IOS Downgrader, you shouldn't use that anymore. It can brick your wii.

    Well I don't want to hack my wii, I just want to be able to be able to use my gamecube action replay on it again (A firmware update disabled it).
