    I'm doing some more cleanup on it. This is extremely messy code. I'm sure it made sense to the author, but it should be written so that other people can understand it.

    You mean like it wasn't completed, right? Double-check: 2gb full SD card and formatted FAT32 full (ie, not quick)? No MicroSD in adapter, no SDHC? Have at least 512mb or more available space on it? You might want to delete them if they're partial files (depending what maui says) and try again. This time, pay attention to its progression. If it reboots, you might want to watch yet again to see if it's the exact same area as the time before.

    Edit: the ECC and regular Wii if both NAND types are being made, may exceed 1GB (depending).

    The ECC has an image file 528mb plus the log file. I saved the files to my laptop and ran the normal. I watch it and it ran 4 passes and gave me another 528mb image file plus a log file. I believe it completed but will upload so somebody can let me know if it is good.

    I formatted Fat32 before I ran the nands and had plenty of room on card. I hope it is good.

    That is great. Those sound like they should be good. Save those img files to your pc and keep them safe.
    Now we need to be able to install wads. See if you can load that prelaunch blind ios9 disc. Try to install the bootmii ios254 wad. See if you can load bootmii, and make a bootmii nand backup. That will give you the nand keys needed to decrypt the realwnd you dump.



    I will put together a disc update for you, should you need to do that. Have to run to work now, but I should have it up in about 4 hours or so.

    I have the update disks that Busing used. Do you want me to throw the NTSC-U version in my Dropbox (I already changed the title ID)?

    I didn't realize the dump was successful. If it is, then there is no need to use the latest version, but otherwise then you should use it instead. I wish you had a USB Gecko.

    I installed the ios254 wad but I can't do anything else. I tried to load bootmii but it keeps giving me the error as before ShutdownSubsystems() done
    _exception_closeall() done. Jumping to ep now...

    How do I launch bootmii?

    OK, that is no trouble. This iso should load bootmii, assuming that the ios254 did truly install
    bootmii-ios.zip
    Just be sure to have a proper bootmii folder on the sd card.

    Now we need to update the wii, there is this iso that will update the wii to 3.1u
    3.1u prelaunch update.iso.zip
    This is not the disc bushing used, it will install a complete 3.1 system menu, all ios, channels, and update boot2 to v2.

    The other option is to use the 3.2 update disc bushing used, this only installs 3.2 sm and ios30. From reading bushings post, this worked, but no so good as all the other ios had to latter be added before the wii worked properly. I am thinking the full system update is the way to go, as you need a full update to update boot2 to v2. I stuck with 3.1 because that is what I have. I also have 4.3, but the only exploit in that is letterbomb which may or may not complicate things, via a region mismatched semi brick. We think this is a USA wii, but I don't know if we can rely on that. Anyway, with that said I thought it best to keep it simple to start. If you want the 4.3 update, let me know. If you want bushings 3.2 update, let me know.

    Try to use the bootmii ios disc to load bootmii. Make a nand backup.

    Then burn an update disc, put it in the wii and let it load. It will take sometime, I think it will give you an update message, but I am not sure. It may just show a black screen, in that case I would let it sit for a good 30min or more.

    Then if you could upload your two nand dumps from realwnd, and the log, and the bootmii nand dump if you can get that. That would be great.

    Once you do the update, go to the Guide: Softmod ANY Wii
    Use the bannerbomb v1 files to hack the wii.
    Just an FYI, some older wiis (only a few) have had issues with the newer hackmii installers. Not sure if you will or not. Just a heads up, there is a guide if you do in the hackmii fix.

    Have fun.

    great, I am dl the 2 ios and burn. I will try your 3.1 up date. Once I make the nand backup I will update the Wii to 4.3 with modmii files I have. While I was going thru some of the info on the Wii it stated that it is USA version. Hopefully it works. I will keep you updated on the progress. Not sure if you want the nands files I already have but here they are just encase.

    n.+ECC.part1.rar
    n.+ECC.part2.rar
    n.+ECC.part3.rar

    WiiFlash_normal.part1.rar
    WiiFlash_normal.part2.rar
    WiiFlash_normal.part3.rar

    Forgot to ask should I have a bootmii folder with nothing inside or should I leave the bootmii files(armboot.bin, bootmii.ini and ppcboot.elf) in the folder of the sd card while I am trying to backup nands?

    update:
    I burnt bootmii ios and insert in Wii with the sd card in slot. It recognizes the disc starts spinning and states checking disc. The Wii screen freezes at the checking disc and the Wii is stilling reading the drive but nothing happens.
    I can feel it we are getting close!!!
