I currently have a botched softmodded Wii. The Homebrew Channel works and my Wii isn't bricked or anything, but I screwed up somewhere along the line and it has a bunch of errors randomly and the Wii won't do what I modded it to do - play games/burned discs.
So, I'm planning to format it, but I just wanted to ask - if I format it, do I need to update to any specific version before I LINK REMOVED? And are there any modding complications in formating it?

We do not support some other site's FAILGUIDE. Please realize, formatting is no solution for a botched softmod. Perhaps you should follow mauifrog's softmod any wii guide from the beginning instead.
Thanks a lot.
I'm glad that I asked before jumping into it. I'm following the guide now and it is going well so far.
I do have one question, though. When I get ready to put my games onto an external HDD to play on my Wii, will the Wii support a HDD that is powered by the USB cable, or does it need to have a plug connected at the mains?

And I use a WD 500gb pocket drive,and it works great with USB.
