    Hello, I'm trying to re-mod my Wii. It was modded years ago and I wanted to start fresh. When running BootMii's nand backup, and it verifies, it can't verify one bad block. Does that mean the nand is bad or something? What do I do?

    Retry it. See if it does that consistently.

    I tried again, it gave me the same thing...it said "Uncorrectable page 260344/260345" and "Verify failed for block 4067"

    Hmm...I'm not sure then. It's been a long while since I dealt with these type errors..

    Well I've looked everywhere and I can't find any answers...I've tried different SD cards, still nothing

    Is the dump failing? It's not uncommon for NAND to have a few bad spots on it. The Wii should ignore those spots when it's writing to its file system.

    I don't know if the dump has failed or not. It just fails to verify one spot near the end. (IE the black block stays black, doesn't turn green)

    I have one bad block near the end of my NAND, too. BootMii's dump routine apparently doesn't pay any attention to the bad block map. If it didn't fail and you have a nand.bin it should be ok. BootMii copies the entire NAND instead of just the blocks allocated by the filesystem. (Like making an image of a HDD.)
