    How to Clean (Not Unmod) Softmodded Wii?

    Before discovering that deleting channels via Data Management on the Wii can leave traces, I did just that. I didn't have any problems, but now I would like to remove any traces of channels and such that I no longer have, to avoid potential future problems and wasted space. Can someone please tell me the best way to see what traces there may be and how to remove them? Thank you.

    If you installed them with wad manager then find the wad and uninstall it.

    Thanks for your response. I did install them with wadmanager, but unfortunately I don't remember with certainty which wads (or what versions of them) I had, which is why I asked -- in addition for a way to remove traces -- for a way to see what traces there are as well.

    The only way I know of is to uninstall the WAD. Or you could format the wii....(although I don't think this will remove everything) but you would lose all your game saves and things like that.

    You may be able to with ATD but I am not familiar enough with it to say.

    I don't suggest formatting.

    You probably will not see a big difference with the traces left behind. I found that leaving the wad file in the wad folder until you want to remove it from the Wii helps a lot.

    Thanks Stomp, I will keep that in mind for the future. Still, I would like to remove any traces I've left behind so far, if at all possible.

    Krank, formatting would not be a major issue for me since there are few gamesaves that I care about, but based on what I've read that will also unmod (and possibly brick) my Wii, which you seem to understand. I tried looking for ATD but couldn't figure out what it stood for (and it's too short for a forum search). Could you please tell me?

    If anyone knows any other ways to do this, I'd like to hear those as well. Thank you.

    Formatting won't un-mod your Wii....but it is a bad idea regardless.

    ATD = Any Title Deleter...don't mess around with this APP or you will brick your Wii.
