    Not that I know of. I also I not sure if the SN is in the setting.txt. It may be in sysconf.

    its in setting.txt.

    people asking for the new version - answer is no.

    when its ready it will be released, unless you want something that will brick your Wii.


    And the packages on the tutorial clearly state to pick the one that YOUR WII IS SET TO, it wont region change your Wii, if you Wii is set to pal, it will stay set to pal, even if you download the 4.1U version.

    and mauifrog, ive already said several times that you cant use the settings replace mod after using the formatter, the existing versions mess up the setting.txt file permissions and the settings replacer cant write the new one over the top.


    a stand alone tool for creating/editing setting.txt is being created, so is a new version of the formatter that will read the existing setting.txt from nand or a new one created with the PC tool from SD card. IT WILL BE READY WHEN ITS READY, STOP ASKING.

    doesnt work with any version of the formatter i have or have used, I have 10 different motherboards here that have the same issue - ISFS_SETATTR -102

    And the other versions of the formatter overwrite your serial number.

    Here is a setting.txt editor and the source code.

    I've been working together with Spzx0 on nand formatter, which supports reading setting.txt from SD card aswell as the NAND. This requires for people to be able to create their own setting.txt, hence he made this application.

    Please post any bugs in this thread.

    The new NAND formatter is still being worked on, but is pretty close to completion.

    That is an excellent development.

    Long as you have bootmii as boot2 (if its as an IOS you shouldnt be in this thread anyway) you cant "mess up" your Wii... the guide clearly states to create a nand backup from BEFORE you format....

    If anything goes wrong you can just restore that backup and will be back where you are now.

    and the reason I have posted 4.1 is because 4.1 is the best system menu to be running, theres no point running anything else.

    As promised:

    This formatter will read setting.txt from nand and ask if you want to use it.
    or can read from SD card in encrypted or decrypted format.
