    hackmii

    i want to install the mighty channels and i need a nand back up.

    i don't have my nand back up with me on this computer. is it safe to make another nand back up using bootmii? if it is safe to make another nand back up, will bootmii delete files on my sd card (ios, folders, apps...?)

    I believe Mighty Channels asks you to make another NAND backup and use that for the emulated NAND for the VC and WiiWare games. I don't know if using your NAND you made from the start is the one you should use. I don't have much experience with MC as of yet. But have read the guide many times. Not sure if it will delete the content of the SD (backup just in case), but make sure to have at least 600 MB on SD for the backup.

    From the Mighty Channels File Structure Spoiler:

    "To get that structure you can use:

    1.
    Bootmii and do a Nand Back Up ....then use Showmiiwads to extract the nand(shown below) make sure you have 600MB free on sd"

    i highly doubt bootmii would delete files on my sd card. i would have seen complaints on this site or other forums regarding bootmii.

    i'll make another nand back up. thanks for pondering with me.

    i made a nand back up and in the new folder there is no nand.bin. i have a bootmii, armboot and ppcboot.elf file.

    the good news is my sd card's files are all unharmed.

    After a successful NAND backup, there should be two .bin files. nand.bin and keys.bin. At least that's how it works the many many times I have done them. Did the process complete? Did you let it verify or skip the verification? That's odd though, I haven't ran into that issue personally, but maybe someone here has. Be patient and someone should be along shortly.

    i have the mighty channels working now. aside from wiiware games loading slow the only flaw was when i press home button to go back to system menu, my wii showed a black screen then hung doing nothing. i had to restart the wii to function again.

    i'm okay with that; i'll save my favorite ware games on the nand.

    p.s. even with my new dark menu theme installed, mighty channels and system menu still function. (notice from my last post)

    Glad you got it working. Not sure if that's normal or why it would be slow....but do some more reading within the Mighty Channels thread (or use the search thread feature) to find similar issues that have already be resolved. Good luck!
