    That's the extent of my problem. It wont let me restore the NAND from last week, which is the 3.2E firmware before messing about with it.

    u have to hex edit your nand dump (old nand dumps give this error), google for instructions, they're out there

    I had the same problem last night, all you need to do is copy your nand.bin and keys.bin into the same folder and from the command prompt type, "copy /b nand.bin+keys.bin fixed_nand.bin", now all you have to do is to copy the keys.bin and fixed_nand.bin to your SD card and rename fixed_nand.bin to nand.bin and now it should work.

    the simpliest way is to use BootMii-KeyFix...you just have to drop the .exe in the same folder as your key.bin + nand.bin and then start the .exe.
    it's pretty simple...it patches the invalid key.bin and then it attaches the fixed file to the nand.bin...so you'll get a nand.bin that doesn't require the keys.bin anymore (like in bootmii beta 1 + 2).

    Just use google to find te program

    update your bootmii via the newest hackmii installer

    its a bug that was fixed a few versions ago

    I'm dont know, but what happend to me was, I dumped my nand with the latest version of bootmii and straight away tested it to make sure that it worked and it did, but a week later after installing 4.1 using dop-ios which bricked my wii, I tried to rewrite my nand.bin but it didnt work anymore and gave the the"dump is for a different Wii" error, even though it worked when I first dumped it.
