    Glad to hear you got it working. Make sure you have at least 550 MB free on an sd card before doing the bootmii nand dump.

    one question. i was reading that you have to install the games to the nand ...by showwii ? is that correct even if i use simpledumper ? i think that is where i did my errors before cause no wads worked ... i did not see that in the original triiforce directions.


    Installing Games

    You will need to use a program like ShowMiiWads to install games to the nand. This can be done by:

    1. In ShowMiiWads, go to the Options menu and select Change NAND Backup Path.

    2. Navigate to where the nand folder (from step 5 above) is located, select it and press OK.

    3. You should see a long list of everything that is in the nand backup listed. I recommend not messing with any of these files!

    4. Click on the View menu and select ShowMiiWads. (To get back to the nand view, go to the view menu and select ShowMiiNand.)

    5. Click on the File menu and select Open Folder.

    6. Navigate to where you have your wad files located and press OK. You may have to wait a bit for the program to load up the list of wads if you have a lot.

    7. Select the game you want to install in the list, right click on it and select Extract then To NAND.

    8. Done! Now if you go to the ShowMiiNand view, you will see the game listed at the bottom of the list.

    Note: You can right click on a game and select Delete to remove it.


    Finally, copy all of the files in the NAND folder (created in step 5) onto the root of your SD card.



    is that the same for the simple dumper ? i think my nand might have been fine just missing a step in installing games ...

    This is an alternate method of installing games. The way in the guide was to use wad2nand to convert the wad files into ticket and title folders that you would put the contents into the folders of the same name on your sd card (they are created from the nand dump).

    This method, I admit, is a bit cleaner. You tell showmiiwads where the nand is, then you tell it where the games are, then you install games. Just follow the steps you have there to install games to the nand.

    Many people say that this method is more reliable than wad2nand. I haven't noticed a difference.

    PS: Simple FS Dumper was another way of dumping the nand, not installing games. Instead of simpleFsdumper, you use BootMii to get a nand. Likewise, instead of using wad2nand to install games to the nand, you can use showMiiWads.

    okay so what i can test is maybe it wad2nand was not running correctly ... can i use simpledumper smaller nan and then just input the games by using showmiiwads and if it works then i know it was the exe file conversion

    dump your nand from bootmii. Then follow the steps on page 6 of the triiforce guide to decrypt the bootmii nand. Once that is done, follow the steps you posted to add games to the nand using showmiiwads. Some people have reported that the BootMii nand gets some other files that the simpleFsDumper nand is missing. Whether they are critical, i don't know but some people have more success with this method.
