    Help with making my Wii a "virgin"

    Ok so I need to send in my Wii because it won't read Brawl. But I have all the homebrew stuff on it. I'm pretty sure if I just delete the channel, there will still be traces of the download on there, so they won't fix it.

    I was wondering if there's a way to make the Wii just like new. I do have 4.0 though. I've been looking around and there's nothing on how to do this on 4.0. Can someone help?

    Also will Wii System Format work? Will it get rid of the remains of the homebrew stuff? And is it safe to do that? I'm afraid that if I delete the channel and go to format it might see the homebrew remains and mess up the Wii. Maybe i'm just being paranoid?

    Any answer will help. Thanks

    just letting you know, using system format WILL NOT remove any cios's. i suggest you use ios downgrader first, then cios downgrader to get to 3.0, then update through ninty to 4.0 again. thats probably as good as it gets
