nand backup question
are the bootmii folders in each backup universal to every wii or are they exclusive? for example lets say I backup 5 wiis... could i just copy the bootmii folder from the first wii into the other 4 wii backup folders while only transferring keeping the keys and nand files?
wii 1: bootmii folder (from wii 1 backup) keys (from wii 1 backup) and nand (from wii 1 backup)
wii 2: bootmii folder (from wii 1 backup) keys (from wii 2 backup) and nand (from wii 2 backup)
wii 3: bootmii folder (from wii 1 backup) keys (from wii 3 backup) and nand (from wii 3 backup)
would that work or would the bootmii folder HAVE to be from/for the wii that was used for the backup?
The BootMii folders are universal, I believe. It just has the BM executable in it (well, not just that. But I digress.). The nand.bin and keys.bin certainly aren't uuniversal, though.

Really no need to confirm. What dni said is pretty well known information.
as for correction pages, i have no idea what you Are talking about.
I think he's talking about bad blocks in the NAND.
The nand.bin and keys.bin are unique to each Wii. Can not be directly used/wrote into another Wii.
dni is perfectly correct !
Yes, that does seem to add up to make a few cents.
