Alright, I'm gonna be quick with this.

I wanna get my Wii's nand, mainly for use with dolphin and in the case of a brick. *it's actually my mother's Wii but she rarely uses it*

I do know one of my only options is bootmii, which is fine and well. However, I don't wanna keep it forever, only to download the nand and nothing else. And if possible to keep it and not have the bootmii pre boot screen, would be fantastic. I wanna be careful with this, for the main reasons of not only bricking, but not getting yelled at. I know if I remove the sd card it wont go to the bootmii screen, although i wanna keep homebrew apps installed. Any tips?

*edit: im using an sdhc card, 4 gigs, just let me know if that will cause issues*

There's a way to run bootmii and make a nand backup without ever actually installing it. Easiest way to explain setting it up is to have u run Casper2Bootmii.bat inside Modmii's support folder, then launch any exploit (I.E. Wilbrand, str2hax, etc)

By running that script, it will save casper's boot.elf to the SD root, and it will save a bootmii folder to sd root as well. You'll just need to trigger any exploit, it will launch capser, which will load bootmii, all without installing bootmii or making any modifications to your console, from there you can make a nand backup and dump the wii's keys
