    As I said, use a different sd card.

    Ok, I bought another Sandisk SD card and will try it now.

    One question about the nand formatter process though. Even when I used it the first time (and it worked great) after the Nand has been written to the card, the tutorial says to navigate to the Sd card and select the nand.elf file. That file is never there. However when I reboot the wii then I can navigate to the correct file.

    Does that sound correct or am I doing something wrong? I followed the tutorial to the letter, but that step has never worked for me without rebooting the wii.

    Thanks!!

    UPDATE: Well it has gotten farther than it has in the past couple of days, so I have hope that this can be fixed. The Nand formatter has installed IOS17, IOS31, IOS36 but it now says "installing IOS60" and it seems to have stopped. The tutorial says that the wii will reboot, but mine hasn't.

    So I am one step closer anyway, but still not out of the woods.

    Sounds like a wi-fi module issue. I would use your nand.bin backup to restore from Bootmii instead of the nand formatter in this situation. If everything installs properly as it did the first time then check your wi-fi module.

    Power on your console and check your router to see if your wii shows up in the attached devices list. This is of course assuming you were connected to the net when you made your nand backup.

    So here is a little more good news, I think. The rewrite to the wii failed at IOS60, as I mentioned. So I rebooted the wii and on a whim tried the file that Krank posted (4.3_MMM_TBR+pack.rar). Before all I would get is IOS60 sucessfully loaded and then it would hang. This time, it said something like "IOS failed reverting to fallback" and it looked like IOS17 was loaded. Anyway, I can get into the MMM now. There is an option there to install and patch IOS60. Should this be my next step?

    Thanks so much guys!!!

    you can install ios60 from MMM.

    and streamline, he has already done a recover and it didnt work. thats why i said to do the nand formatter to confirm its not software, if still faulty, its probably wifi.

    already all covered in this thread.

    and the reason its not rebooting is because its not finishing... the fact its hanging would be a dead give away that the process hasnt finished..

    try reformatting your card to FAT and if that doesnt work, try FAT32.

    but it shouldnt hang.

    Yes, I know he tried reinstalling his nand from Bootmii and it's been covered. I just don't see why you would use the nand formatter when the backup has installed successfully from Bootmii. Why wouldn't you have him check if recovery menu comes up or if he can see the wii with his router first? That was my opinion and didn't see anyone mention it.

    I've tried the nand reformatter several times, with three SD cards, with no success on installing the WADs.

    Most times when I try to write the NAND back from the SD card, I get a message "Could not open an existing setting.txt for reading"

    The it asks me if I want to continue, but it just hangs.

    My glimmer of hope is fading! LOL

    If your 3 sd cards didnt work, you just need to find one that does. As i said originally, the nintendo branded 2gb sandisk card works well.

    the nand formatter works, the fact its stopping on the wads is due to sd card or the wads (assuming you downloaded them from my pack, it should be fine)

    setting.txt error is interesting and is exactly why I suggested you get the nand formatter to work correctly before assuming its a hardware fault.

    If its what I think it is (and judging from him saying theres a setting.txt error, it might well be) completing a nand format is the easiest way to confirm it is or isnt a software fault.

    There is no way to check its a wifi issue if you arent 100% sure the system is correctly bootable, if savemii didnt work, it could still well be software or wifi.

    Im getting him to do things in an order that makes the most sense to figure out what could be wrong.

    2GB Scandisk is exactly what nintendo puts their name on and should work without issue. Maybe he has a bad download of the nand formatter.

    Oh and back at the OP.

    you could try deleting IOS60 from the wad folder, then rerun the format. if it installs everything else fine without error, you can just use MMM to install IOS60 that didnt install. (as you saw above, you can run MMM once a few ios's have installed)

    I just cant remember off the top of my head when the nand formatter writes the setting.txt file and other configuration data to the nand.. it might be after the IOS install, which means you need to get the nand format to complete successfully before using mmm to install missing wads

    edit:

    it might also be worth using the nand 2.0 formatter that is in the same thread as the tutorial (on about page 6-9) you can create your own setting.txt and the formatter will read it from SD.
