    Two stolen Wii's, I have there Bannerbomber's and wish to back calculate there MAC's

    Hi folks,

    I recently had a break-in and three of my Wii's were stolen and my kids are upset. The police asked me for serial numbers for all our goods and said often they recover the hardware if they are given serial numbers. I have the original Bannerbomber hacks for two of the Wii's, and was wondering if there is a way to "back calculate" the MAC addresses from the Bannerbomber zip files I have ?

    Any ideas ?
    There does not seem to be any contact info at the LetterBomb site

    It should be possible to get the mac from letterbomb. I have no idea how. Do you have nand.bin from the wii? Nand.bin has serial number, possibly mac, some other unique info in some tickets. If you have nand bins you could get the info.

    If you need to find mac from letterbomb, I would post in wii hacking @ gbatemp, those who know how to do that will be found there.

    Hi twtwitter:
    I feel you pain! There is nothing worse than that!

    If you have your NAND backed up somewhere, it might be possible:
    mauifrog is correct, check this:
    extract wii serial number from NAND? - GBAtemp.net
    [Not 100% reliable...]

    I'm intrigued in being able to extract more system info from the NAND.bin and Keys.bin.
    If I find anything more, I'll hit you up

    Godspeed!

    I was able to find my SN from the NAND.bin file:

    -Extract with ShowMiiWads program - Tools - Extract BootMii dump.
    -Go to the 'nand-extracteda' folder - ...\\nand-extracteda\title\00000001\00000002\data
    -Locate the 'setting.txt' file. This is encrypted.
    -Get 'setting decrypter.rar', the code is included...it's clean but you can always virus check it.
    - Live link:
    HTML Code:
    http://www.mediafire.com/?jwntzliwjih
    -Extract the decrypter.rar into a folder. You will get: 4 files. [decrypt.bat, enrcypt.bat, main.exe, main.c]
    -copy the 'setting.txt' file into the decrypter folder. Double-click the decrypt.bat
    -This will get you: 'decode.txt'; Open the text file to view the settings.
    -YOUR SN IS UNDER SERNO:_____
    The North America prefix is: LU

    Cool, I have the serial numbers now. Excellent! Thank you very very much for the fast response, numbers have been forwarded.

    Question 1) What would be the menu commands to find your serial number inside the Wii Menu? I only seem to be able to find the Wifi MAC address. It's extremely easy for a thief to just remove the serial number sticker on the bottom of the Wii.

    Question 2) As a backup, is there a way to extract the MAC address from the NAND ? I have the nand backups

    thanks team

    1) I think the Wii menu doesn't have such functionality, but maybe MMM or SysCheck can show it? (You say it's modded, and if the police let you check from the Wii menu, you can explain the situation and launch one of the programs)
    2) You can another (friend's?) Wii to run SNEEK from your NAND and check the MAC address from there.

    MAC can be found on nand in shared2/succession/transfer.id
    But that file is not always present, not sure what makes it.

    You're welcome. I'm glad it worked!
    (if you would not mind clicking the 'thanks' button on my response...I'd appreciate it much-o)
    I don't get on the forum as much so I'm glad I could help, as I empathize with your unfortunate incident.
    Hack on!

    Hi Guys, can anyone tell me what the Console ID is in SysCheck. It's NOT the serial number, but it is a nine character number which is similar to the serial, but not the serial number. What is Console ID ?

    Ok, I have transfer.id , it displays as: \'—†
    That is not to useful, so I assumed it is encrypted, so I put it into C:\setting decrypter\ and do "main.exe < transfer.id > decode.txt
    Inside decode.txt, it displays as: ^f0œ9sΝ;vڵk׮]v۷o߿
    Again, unfortunately not to useful. Any ideas ?
    I have the right file, just not sure how to extract the MAC. So far I have not been able to find any distinguishable trace within nand.bin, that a cop (or me) can hit a few clicks on the Wii to determine if it's my Wii... but I am not stopping.

    Let's keep going guys,
    We need:
    1) Easy way to find out the serial number in a Wii within the software, without having to do a full nand.bin dump, extract and decrypt (which takes way to long). The cops trace everything by serial number that that is the ideal number to trace

    2) or a way to pull the MAC right out of the nand.bin, that can easily be seen if someone turns on the Wii and goes into settings.

    3) pull the console id out of the nand.bin ? Console ID DOES show up in SysCheck

    Serial numbers have been reported to the authorities
