    Is it safe to install my old nand backup on my repaired Wii?

    I recently had my Wii repaired by Nintendo and I had made a nand backup of it before sending it in. Previously I had my BootMii installed as Boot2. I got my Wii back with everything erased and now I'm only able to install BootMii as an IOS. So would it be safe to install my old nand backup or is it not compatible with the changes done to my Wii? Is the nand on my Wii too different now?

    Sounds like a completely different wii console to me, whatever they did to it. It will not recognise that nand backup, I would think.

    Sounds like a different console to me. Might wanna check your serial number. They usually switch those out on factory repairs. If that's the case you definitely don't want to try restoring that NAND.

    Yea I don't know since I would never dare try, but I think it just won't do it at all. Some nand ID error or something, just what I heard, but you definitely wouldn't want to do it even if it did allow you to.
