    Reformatting Wii

    I had a hacked Wii w/ Gecko loader on it. If I reformat it from the wii system menu, should the games play through the wii game channel channel, or would I have to reinstall Gecko?

    The only channels that I had other than my legit VC downloads were the wii hack channel, and the gecko loader. GL was the only way I could play ANY game. I unattached my "my nintendo" membership from the wii, thus removing all of the additional channels [vc games, hacks, etc.]. Shortly afterwards, I reformatted the system from the wii options. My concern is whether of not would Wii games boot up normally afterwards.
