    Not fully understanding what they are doing and inserting it as a necessary step to achieve what they are trying to do
    Used external fail guide
    Trying to un-install failcorp
    nice list

    So much of that is being misinformed though. When I tell people that they are safer with a modded Wii, that it isn't necessary if they want to resoftmod, and that Nintendo won't accept it anyway, some people still don't care. I can't get a reason out of them either.

    The only one I see that makes sense is selling the Wii.

    even if selling, the person buying may want it modded!

    I can't validate or justify any reason...Those were just the ones that stood out in my mind. I personally would never go back for any reason.

Unless they are sending it back for repair, or it's still under warranty and want to throw in the towel on modding all together it's pointless. If they have HBC installed and still want to mod then they can fix their problems by research.

    I was asked to tell my "story" on this subject as it were, so here goes.

    What some of yall may not think about or understand is: My wife (or any of your family) asked me to softmod our wii (she has no tech knowledge of comps, let alone consoles, only wanted to play backups to save money) so i did, then figured i'd check to see what chipset was in my wii, turned out to be D3-2, cant run backup games off disc from this setup. so only option is HDD loader, guess what, she dont know how to work that, she only wants to play games off disc, like ya normally do, pop it in, it plays.

    Say you modded your wii, and you play it, update it and such, and you know what you're doing. What if others in your household dont know what to do or how to run off a loader, and really truly dont wanna learn. You gotta "virginize" your wii again. She doesnt understand mods or want to at all. I gotta get mine back to normal, or she's gonna "b**ch*

    I aint doing it cause i want to, she asked, I have to do it, its part of marriage. Its a reason, called "MAKE THA B**CH HAPPY" lol, so yeah, there are truly good reasons and valid reasons to revert your wii back to stock.

    Well I want had modded it but would like to go to old style as I'm moving from my place and leaving Wii behind with room mates. I don't want to provide any tech support to them as I'm gone if they do something to it.
