Need help with a few issues.
Okay, I tried poking around the forums and whatnot and since I have no real idea of what I'm doing I got myself more confused.
Here's my situation:
A buddy of mine just gave me a Wii that was hacked some time ago. It's missing the sticker on the back where I understand the serial goes, so I can't look it up to find out whats in it - I know he bought it two years ago in a bundle from Toys R' Us during Christmas season but that's all I know. Is there a way to find the serial?
That's not the only problem.. as I was looking around I read Brick Prevention - and felt the need to facepalm when I realized he has a System Menu Theme installed. I would love to safely remove that like it was never there.
And apparently - the disc button(Where it shows what is currently loaded into the drive) Was somehow moved to the second page, and I would love to return it to its proper location.
Lastly - I have no idea whats installed on it and looking around here confused me further. Do I plug the Wii into the computer somehow to find out? I have no idea what he's done to this but I'd love to just remove as much of this crap as I can, dig out my copy of Twilight Princess, and go from there. If someone could point me to a guide or summat to help me sort this out myself, I'd be thrilled. But I have no experience in this stuff and feel like a fish out of water.
Thanks for your time.
Ah - and to clarify - while I could probably piece together how to do some stuff given enough time to fiddle with it and read - I really don't want to brick this, and I'd hate to do one thing before I should do another and brick it that way; for example not removing the theme. (And I have no idea how to find out the versions of the stuff installed either.)
