Bought a Wii for someone. it is modded. Please Help! I know nothing about this
I would first like to apologize if this is not the appropriate way to begin asking questions. I'm panicking and need assistance.
Ok so I pruchased a Wii from someone got it home turned it on and it appears to be modded. it boots into Priiloader v0.2 when I got to the system menu i saw the homebrew channel. The person I bought it for is not interested in a modded Wii so I thought I would reset it to factory settings through the menu.
After formatting the priiloader continues to come up but the homebrew channel is gone. I tried to update to the latest nintendo software in order to clear off any existing third party software and got error code 23004 (I think).
I'm looking for the easiest and simplest way to get my Wii back to factory fresh and then get it updated to nintendo's most recent firmware so that I can give this Wii as a gift.
Please help, I know nothing about this and I just want to get the modds removed without harming the system. (I would prefer not to have to format an sd card and remod it in order to delete it...
I also read that some games such as (super mario all-stars has the latest firmware on the disc. would putting it in write over the modded sections lingering?
At the priiloader screen i see the following along the bottom
Systemmenu v481 priiloader v0.2 (r30)
