    Remove Softmod From ANY Wii

    When I say you may brick throughout this guide, I’m not joking. Read the part that says "read me first", to follow this guide you have to have the basic knowledge to open/close a spoiler. My spoon broke before I could write how to open a spoiler, so I'm sorry. Also, if you cannot master the complexity of spoilers, you cannot master the complexity of this guide. If you know you want to make your wii a virgin, and there is no way around it, please follow this and DO NOT do it on your own(meaning without this guide). This guide was written for your safety incase you MUST remove your softmods. DO NOT skip steps unless I or another member tells you to. Judge that member by their post, if they have more they will know what they are talking about. If there avatar says staff, always listen to them and do not ignore them.

    REMOVE ALL GC MEMORY CARDS AND GC CONTROLLERS! THEY MAY CAUSE ERRORS!!

    DO NOT ASK ME QUESTIONS VIA PM!


    THIS GUIDE IS FOR ALL WII'S UNLESS YOU HAVE CIOSCORP INSTALLED!


    THIS GUIDE WAS WRITTEN WITH A DIFFERENT VERSION OF SYSCHECK, YOUR IOS 58 MAY HAVE SOMETHING ELSE DIFFERENT, IF IT SAYS USB 2.0 YOU ARE FINE!!!

    Read me First-Reasons to and to Not Follow this Guide



    I have tested this on my Wii, and I did not brick. I followed the guide word for word, but I only have a US console. I believe the other SM packs to be safe, but they have not yet been tested. Use at your own will, even if the other system menu's are fine you may brick somewhere else.

    Rules of the Guide


    Prestep


    How to launch MMM


    Step 1 Patching IOS 36


    Step 2 Installing a clean System Menu and IOS 60 to get rid of Priiloader and Themes



    Step 3 Removing your Cios



    Step 4 Removing Custom Channels



    Step 5 Remove the Heart and Soul of your Softmod



    Step 6 OPTIONAL:Formatting your Wii



    Step 7 OPTIONAL:Updating your Wii



    Thanks to:



    If you followed this guide, please hit the thanks button below. If you see any of the users above, go click the "thanks" button under their post. Without them this would have been impossible. You may skip the noob part, they probably won't come back unless of course they bricked.


    Coming soon: IOS pack that will overwrite darkcorp, therefore making it a true guide to remove softmod from ANY wii.

    Nice write up Buddy! You did a fantastic job. No wonder it took awhile. So the only thing I would ad or I think you missed ( or I missed it in here) is the eternal question that will be asked..

    "Will Nintendo be able to tell it was softmodded?"

    LoL! But all in all a GREAT first guide! Other then giving Joostin all that credit... his head is big enough..lol

    Did I come off like a jerk?? Read more here

    I rewrote everything, it should be easier to follow/less problems for people. Thanks to Krank and Cile, I did what they had suggested.

    @anno you have cioscorp installed, redo it from start to finish that and you probably did not patch ios 36, an error i made while writing. That part is now fixed, it is now mandatory that you do it. Sorry for slow response, i just noticed this was approved.

    @shift lock it has always been there but with it being redone i modified that wall of text up top and put in the a spoiler now.

    Can't clean up ios58.

    Hi,

    I used your excellent tutorial to virginize my wii and everything worked flawlessly until step (3b).
    When i compare my SysCheck with yours it doesn't say "IOS58 (rev 6176): No Patches" for me. Instead it says "IOS58 (rev 6176): USB 2.0". I have tried using the IOS manager provided with the MMM to remove it but that didn't work, it didn't grey out. I also tried to overwrite again with the "IOS58-64-v6176.wad" file that came with the "Virginizing IOS.zip", and that didn't work either. How can i fix that?

    Spoiler



    I am sorry if the solution to my problem is very obvious as i am not really experienced with softmodding, been only using tutorials so far. Also please excuse my english because i am not a native english speaker.

    Any kind of help will be appreciated.

    Best regards PlaceboX

    That is fine, you are using a different version of syscheck than i was using when i wrote the guide. That is a clean IOS 58.

    I'm receiving an error when I attempt to patch IOS 36. The exact message (I believe that it appears twice with a slight difference) goes like this.

    Getting IOS36 v3608 to install as IOS236 v65535...
    Loading IOS36-64-v3608.wad from SD Card
    Checking Title...
    Getting Content 15/15
    Checking Hashes...
    Applying patches to ES module #14:
    00005A6A - new hash check
    0000ECF8 - nand check
    000138F2 - identify check
    000152FC - version check
    Resigning Title...
    Resigning Ticket...
    Installing IOS...
    ERROR: ES_AddTicket (-2011)

    Please reload to a IOS capable of homebrew or try the
    Install & Patch IOS36 option from the main menu.


    The only difference I can find between the first and second incarnation of the message is that the first doesn't have the "Resigning Ticket..." line.

    Any ideas?

    I apologize for the double post, but the original has yet to be approved by a mod. I, somehow, managed to fix the problem I was having.

    Ok, I'm not exactly sure HOW I did it, but I appear to have successfully virginized my wii.

    In order to avoid the error that I was getting, I decided to try changing the option at the very bottom of MMM. I forget exactly what it says, but at the side, it displays what IOS file is being loaded. I switched it from IOS36 to IOS236 and tried patching IOS36 again. It worked perfectly.

    Now I have a completely unhacked Wii. Thanks for teh guide ^^

    Thank you for the reply, I'm glad that it doesn't need any further cleaning because I switched to a hardmod and removed my homebrew channel already.
