    I'm trying to get a NAND backup of a friend's wii. I installed bootmii to his SD card not thinking that it was only a 512 MB card. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling bootmii with my 2 gig card with plenty of free space but bootmii still tells me I can't do a NAND backup because I've only got 38MB free space. Wtf?!?

    Not sure how to make bootmii recognize my SD card's free space...any help would be appreciated!

    Wipe the SD card and re-format making sure you're using FAT32 and then launch bootmii from the homebrew channel. See if you can dump the nand then.

    I guess I'll have to try that. Didn't want to wipe my own card, but maybe I can find another one lying around.

    At least the DarkCorp install went OK on their system, after they accidentally updated to 4.3.

    It's only 2GB, I'm sure you could put whatever else is on the card in a temporary folder on a computer for a few minutes.

    Man, of course. Don't know why I didn't think of it, thanks!
