Fully Backing Up Wii/Cleaning Wii Up for Nintendo Repair
Hello everyone, I'm new. I come to you for your sage hacking advice, for I am a complete and utter n00b at this stuff. . .
I have a Wii which I successfully hacked with The Homebrew Channel with Wii Menu 4.0. . .and all was good. But now, my Wii is broken. I get disc read errors when I try to read. . .well, just about any game. Cleaning my Wii with lens cleaner didn't help in the slightest. With that in mind, I have two questions that maybe some of you can help we with. . .
I want to make a full backup of everything on my Wii to SD. Wii allows you to copy some of your saved data and channels, but many things are copy-protected by the system. I would like to know if there is a way to subvert that protection via hacking so I can copy EVERYTHING from my Wii to SD.
I went to Nintendo's customer service website recently. . .after I fed my serial number into the system, it told me that my Wii was still under factory warranty and I can get a repair for free.
I was VERY VERY shocked at this information because I got my Wii at launch and I thought it had been long past warranty expiration.
. . .of course, the second Nintendo notices any trace of Homebrew on my system, there goes my free repair. So, I want to know if there's a way to totally and utterly clean my system of Homebrew and any hints of Homebrew.
(Obviously I'd want to do #1 before #2. . .)
I realize these both seem like major projects. . .and on top of that, I must emphasize, I am a Wii hacking n00b so please dumb it down. . .
Given that, if you could still help me, I would be most appreciative. Thanks in advance :D
