    Have I fully virginized my Wii?

    Ok, so I want to virginize my Wii so I can receive updates from Nintendo again. I just want to have everything original again and 100% brick free, just like when you just turned it on the first time. I used AnyTitleDeleter to uninstall all custom channels and all ISO files greater than 200. Now the only thing I have to delete is the HomeBrew Channel I guess? But I keep it 'till some of you have the answer in case I need to do something else. But want I actually want is that I'm 100% sure of not geting bricked by updating my Wii.

    Thanks,
    Michael

    Yes, but downloading the programs ask for a password?

    Yes, but the answer I actually need, could my Wii get bricked or damaged in the future by downloading updates?

    Thanks

    Ya never know, Nintendo is always trying to do new things to stop modding.

    Ah, spoon-feeding. If done correctly... you will not brick. But the process itself my brick you. Once your wii is completely virgin again it's like it's right out of the box. Follow the guide in my sig and you'll be all set, and i mean follow it exactly AND completely. Do not skip a single step. The search feature is your friend.

    Okay, to make my situation clear, I had the following things installed:

    HomeBrew Channel
    USB Loader GX
    Some Virtual Console games
    PriiLoader

    I actually never used them, so I thought I better delete the whole.
    I downloaded AnyTitleDeleter and deleted all custom channels.
    I deleted all IOS files greater than 200 (249 also)
    I then disabled all hacks in PriiLoader, used NANDCleaner to delete all hacks, but it's said that the files weren't found
    Then, the last thing I did, was deletind PriiLoader with it's original installer.

    I think that I fully virginized my Wii? Now only the HomeBrew Channel, BootMii and DVDX.

    EDIT:
    I BTW never ever touched IOS files under 200.

    no you have not. follow the guide in my sig to get all IOS to the correct version numbers before you delete another thing without knowing what you're doing. if you do not do this guide step by step and you then try to update, the chance that you WILL brick after the update is pretty good. Dont try shortcuts, these guides are here for a reason. This is the last time ill offer this advise, so good luck and i hope i dont see a "Help i bricked my Wii" thread from you in the future.. if you still choose the shortcut.

    Yea, it sounds like you deleted alot of stuff, but if you don't want to do it by following a step by step process ( a guide), Then there is little way to confirm anything and since most of us have no interest in virginizing a wii. It is impossible for anyone to say what will happen for your situation.
    We have guides to provide info in a step by step manner so others can look at and help you, if you do things in a random manner noone can say anything for certain.
