i soft modded my wii(4.1) the other day but only installed the original apps(homebrew,etc..). i decided to go with the wii wode so i followed the tutorial to bring it back to virgin. i had a few issues with the delete all app but was able to delete the 2 channels that were installed. the channels are now gone and my wii updated with no problem when i performed a system update. how do i tell if the wii is back to virgin?
If you updated to 4.2 no problem, then it's basically re-virginized. (4.2 is a seriously mean update for homebrew: it bricks if homebrew is installed)
yes, it updated to 4.2u. i had 4.1 before. does that mean my wii is completly wiped of the soft mod and now a virgin?
There may still be some ios files installed, but the ios249 is stubbed so there is no way to play backups as the cios has been eliminated.
i deleted the 249 ios file when i went through the virgin tutorial. the only one i left was the 254 ios. i'm just wondering because when i was deleting the softmod, i was getting weird messages from the delete all app. it was saying things like "showing wii who your daddy is". i tried running different versions of the delete all app and then deleted the two channels that was installed when i softmodded(homebrew and the other channel). after that i updated and my wii seems to be back to normal. i was just wondering if it was completly wiped of the soft mod?
you could try and install a cios. if it takes you wee not viginized. if it errors you are good to go.
