    newb help:) I can't seem to think of a relevant title for this thread

    okay, first i'm sorry if this has been posted and beaten down before. I have done some searching and couldn't find exactly what I was looking for....and I don't have hours of time to be sure i didn't miss something. so please forgive the new guy lol...

    about a year ago i hacked my wii. no problems there..but then I made the horrible mistake of hacking my cousins wii. her situation is that for xmas her kids got some new games but now they won't play without a system update. her husband reformatted the wii, then tried the system update. apparently the new games still aren't working. I'm not exactly sure what is going on here, but is there any way that I can just erase this wii back to its original state so that these kids can play their games and I can go back to my life?
    what would ya'll recommend i do?

    thanks for all your help and guidance in the past and in the future
    Ciao

    First, this should have been posted in the NEWBIE SECTION

    Second, do a search for "remove softmod" or "virginize a wii", etc, etc, etc.

    doing that is not highly recommended unless the person highly demands it, they need to update their IOS's there is a guide out there on how to do that.

    basically i'm just trying to get it to a state where i don't have to mess with it anymore, and they can play their new games and all is good in the hood if virginizing it gets it back to a state where nintendo can't tell i messed with it...then I'd kinda rather go that route if it's not gonna harm the system.

    Nintendo can tell if you have modded your wii, even if you follow a guide to make it a virgin. Its somewhere on the bootmii website and they said "it appears they insert a disk into the wii to scan it for foreign contraband. Although my friend did remove his softmod and make it seem like it was a virgin, they could tell it had been hacked and refused to work on it." - not the exact words, but i dont have the site saved anywhere. So yes, you could do that and it would require no other work on it OR you can do an equally as risky operation and give it system menu X and it would require no more work on it as they can accept the updates.

    I am always annoyed that people don't appreciate their softmods. Nintendo's updates are just as dangerous for virgin Wii's as they are for softmodded Wiis's. The only thing is that you can (usually) fix a softmodded Wii, but a virgin Wii becomes a paperweight.

    Edit: Would you mind reading Why do people virginize their Wii's? and post a response?
