THIS TUTORIAL ONLY WORKS WITH WII's THAT WERE BOUGHT BEFORE 2010. THE NEWER WII's RUN ONLY WITH SNEEK I read that now, but if you have an old Wii, this tutorial has many advantages. If your Wii was bought in the beginning, you should have no problems. If you have problems with this tutorial, please tell it to me in this thread, and most importantly, when your Wii was created. There is nearly no chance of bricking the Wii in the process (even if you have a new Wii) but I will still tell you: Use this tutorial at your own risk. Foreword: First off, this tutorial (at least the Wii Part) will not have any screenshots, as I have no way (except ugly, blurry pictures) to capture from my Wii. In this tutorial I will show you how to: Create a virgin NAND and personalize it (Put your save games on it) Use this NAND as your Wii System and leave your original Wii NAND untouched Your new NAND is as big as your harddrive. That means you can install many many more channels than on your normal Wii NAND Advantages: The best advantage is (in my opinion) that you can mess with your new NAND as much as you want without the fear of destroying your Wii. This leaves the Wii from the point when you installed this, untouched. Also, if you play your backups, you don't need any cIOS or whatever. With the emulated NAND, it is like a normal Wii. I tested many backups, and none of them need a special cIOS or whatever (Guitar Hero for example needs a special kind of cIOS to work with the guitars, but runs flawless with the emulated NAND). The new, emulated NAND will be as big as your Harddrives partition, so you have a lot of free space for VC titles. What you need The package from this thread SD card formatted to FAT32 (NO, I REPEAT, NO SDHC) NO bootmii folder on the SD A Harddrive with 2 Partitions: Partition 1: PRIMARY/ACTIVE, formatted to FAT32 Partition 2: PRIMARY, formatted to NTFS The SD and the Harddrive connected to the PC Homebrew Channel installed on the Wii (doesn't matter which Firmware is on the Wii, it only needs the stated requirements Creation of the WADs for your Virgin NAND Start the NUS Downloader from the NUS Downloader folder Go to Extras -> Update Database After the Update is complete, exit NUS Downloader and re-start it Check these boxes in the Program: Pack -> WAD Delete Contents Local Files Go to Extras -> Emulate Wii System Update and Choose Your Region Go to Extras -> Load NUS Script and choose the most-up-to-date script Wait until the downloads are finished When the download is complete, exit the NUS Downloader Create the Virgin NAND Start ShowMiiWads from the ShowMiiWads folder Go to Tools -> Create Common key -> enter "45e" in the box and press the OK button Go to Options -> Change NAND Backup Path and choose the TO_HDD folder from the pack Drag all the folders from the NUS Downloader folder to the main window of ShowMiiWads Press Install shown at the status-bar of ShowMiiWads Wait until the process is finished After the installation is complete, exit ShowMiiWads Personalize your NAND Start the FreshNANDPersonalizer from the FreshNANDPersonalizer folder Choose your Region and enter the Serial-Number of your Wii (Serial Number can be found at the right side of your Wii. Something like LEH12345678. You have to include the number in the brackets as well. But without typing the brackets. So it would be LEH123456789 from the example) Press the PERSONALIZE button Choose the FAT32-Partition of your Harddrive to install the generated NAND-folders and wait until it's finished Choose your SD-Card to install the generated SD-files to it Install the NAND Emulator on your Wii Savely remove your SD and your Harddrive from the Computer Power On your Wii and wait until the System-Menu booted up Plug in the SD Start the Homebrew Channel Install IOS58 with the IOS58 Installer Start NANDEmu IOS installer and don't press any key until "Press 1/X to..." is shown Press 1 on the wiimote to install Setting your "new" Wii up Connect your Harddrive to your Wii Start StartNANDEmu from Homebrew Channel or Install StartNANDEmulator.wad channel with WAD-Manager and use it to start NAND-Emulator Wait until the first Screen appears (this may take a few minutes, be patient) Synchronize your wiimote Follow the standard instructions and set up your new Wii as you like Go to Wii-Settings->Internet->Connection Settings and setup your internet ( DONT MAKE A NINTENDO UPDATE after connection test is successful) Activate WiiConnect24 and accept the EULA-rules Go to Wii-Settings->WiiConnect24->Standby Connection and turn it OFF Exit the Wii-Settings Enter the Wii Shop Channel to gather access to your account and restore tickets of bought games/channels/titles Leave the Wii Shop Channel Autostart the NAND Emulator Install Priiloader through HBC (hold B and press + to install it) Power off your Wii and HOLD the Reset button and power on your Wii Choose Load/Install File -> select the StartNANDEmu.dol -> press A to install and after that, press B to return Choose settings -> change Autoboot to Installed File, save the settings and press B to return If you choose System Menu, you will be on your original NAND, or you start the emulated NAND by choosing 'Installed File Restart your Wii Autostart the UniiLoader Remove the _ from the _launch.sys in the bootmii folder on your FAT32-Partition Install Channels on your NAND Connect your Harddrive to your PC Start ShowMiiWads Go to Options -> Change NAND Backup Path and choose your first Partition of your Harddrive Drag any WADs you want to install to main window of ShowMiiWads Press Install at the status-bar of ShowMiiWads Wait until the process is finished After it is finished, exit ShowMiiWads Savely remove your Harddrive from your PC and connect it to your Wii Power on your Wii and your new Channels Start your Wii Backups with the UniiLoader Create a wbfs folder on your NTFS Partition Copy your backups into the wbfs folder Covers can be placed on the FAT32 Partition in the Covers\DVD folder Connect your Harddrive to your Wii-> Power it on -> Start the NAND Emulator -> start the UniiLoader Channel Choose Wii DVD Games Choose a game of your choice, press the A Button and play your backups Problems Black Screen When Starting the Wii: This could be caused by wrong partition format or Harddrive incompatibility Check the following things: The NAND Emulator needs a Harddrive in MBR Partition Format. HDD in GPT-format will not work Look at http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/26203...k-mbr-disk.html to learn how to determine which Harddrive type you have and how to convert it to MBR Even if you have a MBR Harddrive you should try to convert it to GPT and then back to MBR When you've started the StartNANDEmu watch your Harddrive LED. If your Harddrive is compatible then there should be any activity. When there is no LED blinking, re-connect your Harddrive while you have black screen Shut down your Wii and try the above a few times When nothing of the above works, try to install StartNANDEmu.dol to PriiLoader and repeat the steps above My NAND-Emulation became much slower:Install ERASER, then right-click on NAND-partition -> Eraser -> Erase unused space (This will take some time, but it is shorter than a full defragmentation of the drive) I also want to thank sorg for creating the NAND-Emulator and UniiLoader. I use it for some time now, and never had problems. I checked my package every time and cleaned it, so that it does not contain any illegal files. If you find some wad file you think is forbidden to share, please contact me as soon as portable. I also would be happy about any kind of feedback. As I don't have a filetrip account, I would be very happy if someone could mirror my upload to filetrip and send me the link.
