    i'm on a new wii, d3-2, black, bootv4, so i couldn't install bootmii in boot2, so i did it as an ios.
    i backed up my nand, and saw that i had no bad blocks.
    is this rare, good? since i read about most people having bad blocks and that it is normal. does that mean i get like an extra 8 or so compared to people who have bad ones?
    is this because i have the newest wii at the moment, maybe it's nand is 'better' or something?

    just wondering [​IMG]

    many people have no blocks
    nothing special about it (you just have a little more space, thats all)

    oh, awesome.
    do blocks 'corrupt'? i.e. my wii is two days old, in a year would i expect it to have a few bad blocks?
    or is it a production thing?

    haven't heard of blocks corrupting over time

    so if you get more bad blocks, its probably due homebrew that affects the NAND

    Nope.
    Don't worry about it, you hardly notice it.

    Not sure if mine 'corrupted' or not, however I originally had 0 bad blocks when doing a NAND Dump. However, my dog pulled my Wii off the ledge it sits on while it was running, and I now have two bad blocks. Not the end of the world, I'm just happy its still working, however I've definitely witnessed bad blocks appearing.

    It's natural for a Wii to have some bad blocks coming from the factory. Nothing to worry about.
