    Selling Wii 4.2U. Format?

    I'm selling my 4.2U Wii to get a Xbox 360 (there's a sale this weekend so I'm trying to get some extra money. Plus I already have another Wii ) but I need to know how to cover up my hacking footprints. I've already deleted the channels but would formating the Wii brick it?

    never format your wii ever with softmod on Completely Virginize Any 4.2 SoftModded Wii

    edit: I don't understand, if you already have the guide under your sig, on how to make your wii virgin.
    why are you still asking

    taken from the guide under your sig
    How to remove softmods and make your Wii a virgin

    I've put this guide together with the help of bsmalley23 to help people who want to get their wii back to an unsoftmodded 'virgin' state. Once completed you will have a clean Wii on sys menu 4.1.
    Channels are best deleted with AnyTitle Deleter as removing them in data management leaves traces behind and don't use the 'format' option on the wii as this won't delete what you want it to and could cause problems.

    Thats halarious. He has the link in his sig and he's asking how. Nice spot Mekee.(although I don't know for sure if that will stop "N" from finding something but to sell to someone else or trade in... that would be a good solution).

    Damn I suck!!!!

    well my bad for making a mistake. i thought i had the link for a different version of wii. now heres the question im asking, why are we making a big deal of one small mistake and being imature about instead of just pointing out the mistake? this really makes me question some of the members of this site.

    If the link wasn't in your signature I would have just pointed you to that guide or linked it. Also you can find it with a quick search.

    I apologize if I've offended you, don't question the other members, I'm the one at fault

    The guide he had in his signature (He removed it now) would have worked if he had a certain serial number. It mentions this in the guide. I found both guides with a search.

    Sorry Darkmod if you have hurt feelings but you have to admit, that was a shipment of FAIL.
    Now it's time to close this before we have arguements that ppl don't really want to have.
