Curiosity killed the cat and evidentally eaten the thread title
I've been wondering, and after searching some forums, googling, reading random posts around here.
1) Why doesn't formatting remove softmods? Isn't formatting's only purpose is to leave the Wii in the state it was in once it was bought?
2) Why is it not a good idea to "virginize" a wii to re-softmod it? I suppose it has something to do with stuff being written to NAND or something.
3) Why shouldn't you update from Nintendo? I can sort of answer this myself but I want a confirmation, does Nintendo overwrite your IOSes with their own stubs or something from the like?
