    Corrupt nand

    Hi there everyone I'm not new to this but a friend of mine gave me his wii which he tried to do himself. It is bricked. and not a little brick, but a big one. No sd priiloader or bootmii will work and the only thing I can get to boot is a black screen. The dvd drive appears to function. so I removed the main system board and installed mine and everything works perfectly. So no hardware errors then. Now upon questioning him it turns out that he tried to format the nand as to do a full system wii factory reset from a games disk. Only half of the process appears to have worked. He wiped the nand now I have to get some advice on how to get it back on a completely blank or corrupted machine. This is a little beyond me this time. I have tried Nintendo Official Wii Backup Disk v1.31 with no success. every boot /wad manager I can think of and still nothing and its driving me nuts.

    There is little you can do in these cases. If you still have the keys or a NAND back-up of that wii, it can be restored using a hardware NAND programmer. If you don't have a hardware NAND programmer, you can ask certain members here, but they will charge a price. If the wii is bootmii/boot2 capable, bootmii can be injected using a hardware NAND programmer. Again, other members can do this for you, but it will cost you. If you don't have a back-up or the keys of the wii and it's not bootmii/boot2 capable, there is nothing that can be done.

    I found out what my mate used and it ain't pretty. He used a program called settingEdit on the PC to create some type of text file and then he used a file called 4.1eNand_Formatter. This contains several files with the following names:

    nand formatter 2.0.elf

    two folder one wad and the other bootmii
    the wad folder has
    IOS17-64-v518.wad
    IOS31-64-v3092.wad
    IOS36-64-v3094.wad
    IOS60-64-v6174.wad
    RVL-Eulav_EU-v2.wad
    RVL-Rgnsel_EU-v2.wad
    RVL-WiiSystemmenu-v450.wad

    the other folder bootmii has

    armboot.bin
    bootmii
    ppcboot.elf

    the file bootmii looks like an *.ini file and has the following information


    # BootMii config file

    # Video mode, possible settings:
    # NTSC, PAL50, PAL60, PROGRESSIVE
    VIDEO=PAL50

    # Autoboot, possible settings:
    # SYSMENU, HBC
    #AUTOBOOT=SYSMENU

    # Autoboot delay, in seconds:
    # Default is 5
    #BOOTDELAY=5

    Well is is boned or recoverable? Any further ideas?

    If you put a bootmii folder on the sd card and bootmii boot2 does not load, the wii is toast.
    Check for boot2 bootmii, try booting it boot2 bootmii and try removing all sd card, dvd, usb, gc stuff and boot the wii, you would see two flashes from the blue lead drive light if you had boot2 boomii, only one flash if not.

    Hopefully your friend has boot2 bootmii, it would be silly to run that formater without it.
