    Is there a way to copy my savegames from my SNEEK NAND back to the real NAND?

    I've already attempted to copy them from NAND to SD through SNEEK, but most of the time I get a black screen when I turn it on, or it shows the warning/Press A screen and goes black, or, RARELY, it shows the System Menu, which then goes black when I try to load anything or click on the Wii Menu (Options/Data Management screen).

    Also, if I click on Homebrew Filter or any other channel, the Wiimote cursor disappears and stops responding, while the channel animations are still playing so it's not clear if the Wii itself is freezing or not.

    u can use save game manager gx if u install cIOS249 rev14 to your emulated nand using showmiiwads (grab the wad from ModMii download page 4)

    there are probably a few other ways to do what ur asking, but assuming it works out for u this is the likely to be the simplest

    Ok, I've got that on my SD card, but I can't even access it because Homebrew Filter is apparently borked. Hell, the SNEEK NAND in general seems fucked.

    Yeah, I was able to extract the saves I wanted from the NAND, but I'm not sure if I'm installing them right. Seems like the GH Warriors of Rock save won't transfer. And that's the one I need the most.

    Try transfering via SGM GX? Or are you already doing that?

    You have to use SGM GX, and to restore a save you have to have one on your NAND. It can overwrite saves, but not add them.

    Yep, I got that bit. But the first time I attempted it, it seemed to work but when I loaded the game I was asked to create a new profile. I went back into SGM GX and now it tells me the data could not be transferred.

    Why not just fix the SNEEK NAND? There isn't really anything that can go wrong with one that can't be fixed. Since SNEEK NANDs can easily be backed up before you mess with it, you've got nothing to lose by trying.

    Also, save data will remain intact assuming you don't mess with the sd:/title/00010000 folder or the game tickets (found in sd:/ticket)

    Because no matter what I tried, I couldn't get SNEEK working anymore. It just stopped working one day and I couldn't load JoYflow or any app or channel. And that's if I could even get the System Menu to load.

    I think he was suggesting building a clean nand then copy the above bolded folders from the old nand to the new one

    Not quite. Doing that may work, but never tried myself. The TMDs are in the title folder with the saves, and the tickets are, well, in the ticket folder. [​IMG] Not sure, but you might need to copy sd:/sys/uid.sys as well if you do this...don't know if SM will care about there being saves for titles you've never run.

    I was going to suggest cleaning the existing one.

    I've tried building a new NAND and reinstalling the saved games and what not backed up from the old one. No dice. I've tried a different memory card. No dice. Either way, I formatted my drive and went back to CFG Loader. Now I'm having issues with THAT.

    That eliminates pretty much everything that could be wrong with the NAND itself...

    Are you running SNEEK or UNEEK? And are you using a +DI version? Try installing plain SNEEK on an SD card instead if you're using UNEEK or a +DI version. Disconnect your USB drive while testing.

    Also, for UNEEK+DI or SNEEK+DI, there MUST be at least one game on the USB device. If not, add a game and try again. DI versions don't work right without a game.

    If you've tried plain SNEEK already...I'm not sure what else could be wrong. [​IMG] Maybe someone else would know. I've never seen a case of SNEEK failure where a new NAND, replacement SD, or a fresh, plain SNEEK build didn't get it working.

    Yeah, I've successfully tested it on an SD card before. Problem is, the SD card is too small to hold games AND DLC. And I've been using UNEEK+DI, with games in the folder.

    UNEEK probably doesn't like booting on your HDD. Are you using an SDHC card? If so, get a plain SD. Bootmii has issues reading some HC types.

    Also did you try SNEEK+DI (the games stay on your HDD, so shouldn't be a space issue)? If your SD is at least 1GB, you should have plenty of space for some DLC (firmware takes up ~200MB, less if you remove the weather/news/photo channels).

    Nope, it's just a 1GB card, non-SDHC. Wait, how do I run SNEEK from my SD card and get it to load the games from the HDD?

    I think JoyFlow can run on SNEEK/SNEEK+DI

    So I use SNEEK+DI instead of UNEEK? Hmmm.... I'll give that a shot, then.
