    How do you virginize a 4.3 Wi?

    I followed this guide on softmodding a Wii in Wiimenu 4.3. It worked perfectly.

    But now I want to undo it, or "Virginize" my Wii, as they say. I've done a search, and found little to no helpful information. Has anyone successfully done it? Can it even be done?

    Thanks for the help! -Walter

    far as I know, you can't completely remove the softmods...there's still some traces of it left.
    why are you looking to remove the softmods?

    I want to remove them because I want to update. I want to use the shop channel and netflix channel without having to do more complicated softmodding. I also want to play some newer games that contain disc updates. I know disc updates can be bypassed, but I tried that with Other M and the final cutscene shuts off the system. I'm not sure why, but I want to try it on a virgin wii and see if that will fix it. I also want to be able to send my wii back to nintendo if I need to. So, all those reasons, plus I just want my wii back to it's old self.

    Is there anyone else trying to do this?

    At last, this user explains himself. So you don't want to use Krank's ShopChannel update guide and download the Netflix channel from there because "it's too complicated," ooooooooooooooooook. Did you bother to read the guide on Other M?

    there's a way to update just the shopping channel - look here
    there are guides on here to get around the problematic games...
    priiloader can block updates

    if you still want to virginize...not sure if there's a guide on here to virginize 4.3...but you'll have to delete/uninstall what you INSTALLED. Make sure you don't uninstall/delete the wrong thing

    So if I look through the guide that I followed and uninstall every IOS that was installed, would that work? I'm confident that I can work backwards from the guide.

    I'm sorry I can't express myself properly or even in a civil tone for that matter

    You should be aware that every software modification you've ever made to your console has been logged on the console itself and is not modifiable for the purposes of sending your Wii back "undetectable." You can uninstall your softmod completely and every change you've made is still readable by Nintendo.

    us3rname alluded to this and was correct in post #2. So if you intend to remove your softmod, do not let this be one of the reasons for it.

    However, like he mentioned, the process to remove your softmods is a simple one -- uninstall everything you've installed that didn't come factory shipped.

    Is the right way to delete things other people say? It wasn't uncivil at all, I'm just frustrated and you're being very unhelpful. Please don't reply to my posts anymore.

    EDIT: Thanks Ithian for your reply.

    I found this guide to virginize a wii back to 4.1. http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...ii-virgin.html

    If I follow this guide, will I be able to update back to 4.3 afterwards?

    No, that guide won't work as-is. It was written at a different time and the 4.3 softmod guide wasn't envisioned then (takes an obvious different approach). I can and will reply when you keep making remarks of a disrespectful tone. You made several posts through out the 4.3 softmod guide stating your desire to virginize. When I pointed out that's beyond the scope or intent of that guide, you disagreed. I pointed out none of our softmod guides include this information, which is only common sense.

    You've been told virginizing won't be helpful, and in fact have been given ample instruction on how to surmount the issue you're having. There's no sense in beating a dead horse. If it's beyond your skillset, you can always turn to a neighbor, friend, or someone who feels comfortable making additional changes to update the shopping channel. Perhaps happyhibisci as a name is like Greenland and Iceland with regard to the origins of their names. Thread is closed; persist on the matter and your posting ability will be curtailed.
