hi, need help setting my wii back to virgin plz
hi, i got a wii a little over a year ago and installed a priiloader v0.3 and homebrew on firmware 4.1
i have to set it back to virgin due to problems beyond my control.
i have read the tutorial on setting a wii back to virgin and it says to use cios downgrader 1.2 to go back to firmware 3.2 then upgrade to 4.1 again.
i formatted my sd card and set it up as sd/apps/cios downgrader 1.2/boot.dol+icon.png+meta.xml
when i try to run it the wii reboots back to the priiloader
i have dug and dug trying to find info on it to no avail.
does anyone know what i'm doing wrong?
any help would be greatly apriciated

I know you say that you have do do this for reasons beyond your control is that because you are sending back to Nintendo for repair? That is the only reason you would want to do so in my opinion but even then it would be hard to remove everything. We have guides on how to make your wii a virgin but it is not recommended to do so unless it is absolutely necessary.
If you must do it and only if, follow this guide here. Don't do it just to get a game running or becasue you have other softmod issues.
