    Restoring Wii help

    hey im not sure if this is the right place to post this so my apologies if its wrong.

    So i want to restart/restore my wii from bottom because some of the cios i installed messed some things up, like some games dont work and some games do but need to be ran through neogamma. so i need some help with this cause i want to ensure i can play the newer games with no problem (like zelda skyward sword and metroid other M). Is there anyway i can restore the wii so then itll be like i just bought it? my wii is PAL btw

    IF you plan on modding it again then there is no reason to "Put it back to normal". However if you do not plan on modding it again then there are "virginize" guides in the Guides section.

    If you want help to fix your wii WITHOUT virginizing (which I don't recommend) Then post a syscheck.

    EDIT: Just to clarify I meant that I DON'T recommend "virginizing". Not the other way around.

    Yes that is the desired result...like I said in most cases it is not needed.

    Do you plan on modding your wii again after " Virginizing" ? If so then it is not a good Idea.

    Gottcha. Make sure you follow the correct "virginize" guide for your system menu.

    There are others you may want to read. You never mentioned what system menu you are on though. Anyways I would never follow one of these guides so I can't really advise you on which one to use. Sorry...all I can say is read carefully and pay attention to any special notes about the system menu version that you are on.
