    It will restore your wii too the same state it was at when you backed it up.

    Possibly, from what I know the NAND is just a dump of the wii's internal memory at the time you backed up the NAND.
    So I guess it would restore everything to what you had on your wii right before you made the NAND dump...I've never restored my NAND before so that might not be the case

    Yes its as people have said, it restores to backed up state.
    I have done this several times going from 4.1e to 4.3e for testing.
    Only thing to note is make sure your SD card has the the same apps as when you backed up, or some HBC won't work.

    I don't think restoring your nand will change that because it is not stored on your console

    Yes, if you know both console keys you can use Betwiin, but its not guaranteed to work. (Must meet certain conditions)

    you can but it must be converted. i believe betwiin is the app to convert nand dumps. but i believe you need the keys from the "different" wii.

    can you restore a bootmii dump using bootmii ios? ive always wondered but never really asked or looked. i remember seeing that in the hbc update changelog, you need to use the konami code to enable or something...

    Would it be possible to edit your nand copy?

    You can edit an emulated nand and run it using sneek (or uneek+di), but you wouldn't be able to flash that edited & decrypted nand to your wii using bootmii.

    As long as you have way to access Bootmii.

    that has nothing to do with your theme. It sounds like a bug made with nand dumps from using Bootmii beta 3 and below.

    Download this: Bootmii-KEYFIX.zip

    Then fix your NAND.bin to use the correct keys by running the bootmii-keyfix executable in the same location as "NAND.bin" and "keys.bin"

    u need the old nand.bin, and keys.bin

    if ur missing keys.bin, u can just get it from bootmii, since the keys.bin for your wii will never change
