    I don't even know where to start... (Wii Softmod back to Virgin)

    Just as the title says I have no idea how to take my pre-owned Wii which was softmodded by the previous owner and to make it virgin again. I do not have any backup files so I'm not even sure if this can be done.

    All I have is whatever is on the SD-Card.

    Here is the info that I could gather about the mod:

    IOS v60
    Systemmenu v449
    Serial: LU707 (first bit)
    Model: RVL-001

    I also get the "Couldn't find hacks.ini neither on FAT nor on NAND" error every time I exit a screen.

    Now again I'm just looking to virginize the system back to default. I am more than capable of doing it if someone can point me in the right direction. I would be ever so grateful to anyone that can help. I'm at wits end with this thing and would love for it to work like a normal Wii.

    Thanks in advance guys/gals!

    Virginizing is unnesscesary and dangerous. There is no benefit to it (unless you consider an expensive brick a benefit).

    Simply follow the Softmod ANY Wii guide, and post a syscheck before it. I'd be interested to see it, at least.

    How would I do a syscheck?

    Also this is how to install a softmod. I'm more the less want to get rid of mine completely and that guide shows nothing on how to do that. Any other suggestions?

    You only need to overwrite it. There is no benefit to virginizing, as it's more risky than modding. If you follow the guide, everything should be fixed. Nintendo can tell if your Wii was modded regardless of what you do, so there's no point.

    Download SystemChecker or SystemChecker GX from the Homebrew browser, which can be obtained at WiiBrew.

    You can also alternately use the search function to search on how to make a Syscheck. That would be a more desired option at this point.

    You should also follow EVERY step in Softmod ANY Wii. Your 4.1 is not patched, while the one in the guide is. Every step is important, and regardless of if the Homebrew Channel is already installed, install it again.

    Sorry for the undesirable answer, but I don't want to see another bricked Wii in the Bricked section, and I don't believe anyone else does either.

    Hmm, but I may have deleted some files in the process because I did a Wii Update.

    Also, I can do an upgrade with what you said above even if I don't have any original files?

    Just skip the Syscheck.

    No further talk is needed, you can follow it regardless.

    If you're on 4.3 now, you need a disc to launch the exploit.

    Follow the softmod any wii guide to mod your 4.3 wii.

    You can then access the wii store, etc.
