    No, a format will just erase data and keep it at the same firmware … No, a format will just erase data and keep it at the same firmware version.



    ok thanks

    Format a Wii.
    It doesn't have a hard drive.

    It's not advisable to downgrade to 4.3 to 4.2.

    If you have Lego (indiana, Star wars or batman et al) why bother to go down to 4.2?

    we have both those games ( Indiana & star wars) but neither helped the problem.
    Any ideas hun?
    we didnt format it, was going to just leave it, the lad who managed to update it is only 5 and has Asphergers , Ive asked him what he did and he can't remember,

    Just use ModMii and reflash as if it had never been flashed before.

    Install Priiloader too, then no accidental updates.
