    Looking for help to virginize a 4.3U wii. Not planning on re-modding

    I'm looking for help to virginize my Wii. I softmodded using ModMii (the exact version, I forget) and now, in order to play some of the games that I still physically own, It's bothering me to do a system update. I am afraid that this will brick my Wii.

    I have used the search function, and, while I have located various guides that deal with 4.2, I have yet to find one that can specifically help me with my issue. I thought of doing a complete restore by formatting the memory, but that, in and of itself, wouldn't remove the cIOS file. I'm worried that that, in and of itself, could cause a brick.

    Any information that can be given to help me figure this issue out is more than welcome.

    Thank you for taking the time to respond

    Why virginise. Install priiloader to block online and disc updates.

    I would prefer to virginise because, in the future, I might be selling my Wii to a friend, and I wouldn't want them coming back to me demanding their money back because they managed to brick it up. Better safe than sorry, just like adding brick protection when it comes to guides that have high potential to cause bricks if mistakes are made.

    Ah, thanks .

    Unlike some, I read everything through two or more times before I even start anything. Better safe than sorry, especially with something that can be as risky as this.

    My cousin lost his Wii because he tried to unmod it, so I know how risky it can be. Following the guide, though, I'm confident that I can manage it without causing any damage.

    Thanks again for the link, and I'm glad I managed to find this community
