    Yes, but if you ever need to restore it you will be how the wii is now.. Which as long as it's working is probably better than an unmodded backup

    So basically we need to use nand formatter 2.0 and the bootmii+wad folder from 1.1 ?
    Maybe you should update the first page with 2.0 packs .

    Can i use this formatter then update to 4.3 via internet ?
    I have Indiana Jones i can mod it again if that's the case
    For now i want to take it to warranty because it can't read discs anymore

    Permissions are wrong when using the formatter. So nintendo could detect that just as easy as homebrew.

    First let me explain:

    I have a release Wii with serial leh1020xxxx , its PAL. Wiikey 1 installed as well as Bootmii as Boot2 and HBC. No backup of NAND.
    My Wii got bricked when the power was turned off because the update took so long.

    I stubled accross the Thread about ho to restore Wii without NAND backup, used Comex Formatter to reinstall the system. Wii was back to live , but i lost all savegames etc. Not real biggy. In the meantime HBC was reinstalled and Wii was update to 4.3e.

    So now when trying to setup WiiConnect24 it gives me the threaded 110213 error, so something must be wrong.

    Now i'm gonna try backup/reinstall the Wii with this tut. Wish me luck it gets fully fixed

    Update 1:
    - Made NAND backup , put it to my PC and to my USB disk , just to be sure.
    - When starting the formatter it states my Wii serial , but it's different then it actually is on the label. So gonna use the setting.txt editor and put in my correct serial...

    Update 2:
    - Setting.txt is created , when starting formatter v2.0 I get the wrong serial from NAND. Press B to load from SD. Not going to work without GC controller. So I guess I'm out of luck for now.

    Is there any way to change the Serial of my Wii back to it's real Serial ? Maybe then the WiiConnect is picking up the system as valid again.

    Serial shouldn't matter, it got changed using comex formatter the first time as it doesn't support reading the serial like the modded version we did.

    I'd just get a gamecube pad or you could use fstoolbox to overwrite setting.txt on the wii. Just make sure you encrypt the setting.txt when the editor asks.


    However, you are the type of person I like - read everything, have a well thought out plan and can actually communicate it correctly.

    Let me know how the serial change goes, if it doesn't work I'm happy to work through a few things with you. It's well known the formatter messes up file permissions and this could well be another side effect.

    We could try using betwiin to covert a donor NAND for you which would have everything as it should be and see if that works. You would need to send me a backup of your NAND (how it is now is fine).

    I used instructions from an external site on how to change the serial in case of a online ban from BigN. Or is there a tut or something to do the change around here ?

    Well I tried FSToolbox to change the SN. When starting it , and browsing to the Shared2 folder there is no DWC_AUTDATA file listed. Seems it is not in the system or wrong persissions so I cant see it.

    Want me to run a SysCheck ? Or want to have a look at my NAND Dump ?

    (I tried again to connect to my Wifi , still no luck , even wont connect to the open Wifi's around here where my laptop is able to connect to without problem.)

    title\00000001\00000002\data\setting.txt

    that is the location to copy your new setting.txt file

    But it doesnt sound serial related.

    I think we should convert a donor dump to work on your Wii.

    Upload your nand and keys to mediafire and pm me the links

    if that doesnt work, it sounds like wifi module is broken

    Hey thanks for the guide so far. but now i have my first problem, all works fine for the moment i formated the NAND. After this normally my wii should restart and go into menu. but this dont happens, if i try to start my wii, the wii opens the browser with the error: you tried to access the adress marc:fix/us/eng/setup/ startup_index1.html. which is currently unavailable. i think he needs internet, but i cant setup it or something. i can use the wii remote now, but there is nothing to click.. hope you can help me please. thanks

    (sorry for my bad english, hope you can understand what i mean)
