    Please help! Trying to virginize my Wii

    Hello everyone. I am following this great tutorial here: http://www.wiihacks.com/other-faq-gu...odded-wii.html

    I have a 4.2U system menu and I am on step C in the guide. I don't have any custom channels aside from the HBC so I skipped to part 3. My problem is that when I load AnyTitle Deleter, I get this error:
    Code:
    Informing Wii that iI am God....OK!
    ... OK
    ...
    ... OK
    
    Checking system region...
    
    ...
    ...
    Informing Wii that I am its daddy...Error! ES_identify (ret = -1017)
    Error! ES_OpenContent (ret = -1017)
    When I press A again I get this:
    Code:
    Region detection failure!0
    Conf Region 1
    When I press A again it loads as normal, but when I select which IOS to uninstall, I get errors again like this:
    Code:
    Error! ISFS_Open (ret = -106)
    It then asks if I would like to continue, but I am afraid that I will brick my Wii. Can someone please tell me what to do? Thank you.

    Well, first off, why do you want to virginize your wii? It is never recommended and almost never needed. If you are really sure, try AnyTitle Deleter v1.1 by bushing , you can find it here: AnyTitle Deleter - WiiBrew (at the bottom of the page).

    I get errors when using AnyTitle Deleter... that is what my thread was about.

    I want to virginize my Wii because the Wii won't let me play online with a new game I have unless I do a Wii system update.

    I already went through half of the guide, though. Won't that mess everything up? I really don't mind losing the homebrew channel.

    No I mean I already went through about half the guide. I installed a bunch of WAD's and I really would like to "undo" the changes I've done or keep going through the rest of the guide. Won't installing anything else mess up my Wii if I only went through HALF of the guide?

    That is one of the biggest reasons people virginize their Wii's: they think they have to in order to do a clean softmod. Virginizing is never logical, since it is risky, unnecessary for resoftmodding, it won't make your Wii safe from updates (because it's not the hacks that make updates unsafe), and Nintendo will still be able to tell if you have had your Wii softmodded before.

    Thanks for an informative response. I appreciate it.

    Where do I go from here then? I went up to step C in the guide. Should I just forget that I even started the guide and work on installing priiloader?
