    Question Question about NAND

    Only been on the hacking scene for a few months. I'm fairly comfortable with a lot so far, but I have a few questions about the NAND:
    -Once you homebrew your console(mine is letterbomb) does that alter the NAND in a way that it's no longer the original?
    -If I have a NAND backup after it was hacked, can I apply that NAND if it ever bricks? Or does it have to be the original NAND before any modifications were made?

    Thanks!

    1. Yes it is altered. You put the homebrew channel onto the memory of your Wii, along with whatever else you did when you modded it.
    2. If you have a Wii where bootmii was installed as boot2, then yes you can put any NAND backup that you made on that Wii back on. If boot2 installed as an IOS, then you would have to send it to a nand programmer. Simple way to prevent a brick? Install priiloader and dont go messing with themes. Also, take a look at the brick prevention guide below in my sig.

    Yes , It's normal to have Bad Blocks.

    The Nand you have "Backed Up Now" should be sufficient.
