    A simple (or stupid?) way to make virgin?

    I'm a little confused about the "virgin" guide, regarding what step I need to follow and what I need to skip. I have a 4.2U softmodded with USB HDD but without Preloader. I have full NAND backup right after HackMii even though my BootMii is installed as IOS. My question is, can I restore (nearly) virgin state by doing the following?

    1. Restore NAND back to the point of after HackMii.
    2. AnyTitle delete whatever left that's 200+.
    3. Delete HBC.

    Will this be good enough for store return? Thanks!

    I would be weary of a NAND backup without preloader, I've never tried it and you may be fine [I never do anything without preloader]. But as far as your steps go, right before you get rid of HomeBrew Channel I would run NAND Clean and then delete homebrew Channel.

    Your theory is sound.

    The virgin guide is not designed for 4.2 Wiis.

    Restoring NAND backup on bootmii/IOS could very well brick your Wii, so I wouildn't recommend that. Restoring NAND backups is for bootmii/boot2 at the moment.

    Same prinicple applies though. Removing apps, DVDx and IOS over 200 with ATD and finally clearing up the channels. Won't be perfect but then if you felt there was a chance you wanted a virgin Wii you should never have modded it really.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.
