    Angry Wii 3.2U firmware will not upgrade to 4.1

    I am currently running version 3.2u and am wanting to upgrade my firmware so I can reset my wii to factory state. I have used the firmware updater version 4.1 but it gets everything downloaded and everything almost installed right to the end where it is installing the 4.1 menu and it fails and gives me an error. Something I need to ammend within my system to make this work? Any help would be greatly appreciated. This is my first post so hopfully it is in the correct spot.

    Thanks in advance

    well if you want to "restore factory settings" if that means remove homebrew you would have to virginize it. why would you do that?

    The purpose of virginizing is solely if a user needs to return the unit for in-warranty work at Nintendo; is this the case?

    Simplest way to virginize a wii is to install all ios found in the 4.1 update, uninstall HBC, dvdx, bootmii, delete all cios above 200, do a system format, then update from official disk to 4.2. But you should only do this if your sending the wii in for repair. Otherwise, it is a stupid idea and you would be stupid to do it.
