    When i have the nand backup, can i extract the wii's serial from it somehow?

    I did a search and got returns that showmiiwads can sort off do it. But when i extract the dump i cannot find the settings.txt
    I can find a settings.xml, but that doesn't contain a serial.

    Download: http://www.4shared.com/file/206079325/16f10662/NAND_T.html

    Install it on a new folder

    In your nand extracted folder go to

    Code:
    \title \ 000001 \ 00002 \ data\
    and copy setting.txt to NAND_T folder

    go to dos prompt (alt + r and type cmd), go to the created folder and type dec < setting.txt > decode.txt

    A new file decote.txt will be created with these info:

    AREA=
    MODEL=
    DVD=
    MPCH=
    CODE=
    SERNO=
    VIDEO=

    You will find your serial on SERNO=

    setting.txt is editable. the SERNO in there may not be your real one

    Gambia, The
    Somewhere in Europe
    Is there also a Version for x64 Systems.
    Its a 16 bit App -> x64 can't emulate 16 bit apps

    I used DosBox to run it here. I think there is not.

    dec.exe in NAND_T is buggy since the output is truncated for all pal wii (see the spoiler)
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Here is my version. It works for pal consoles, not tested for other regions.

    If you want you can compile it online [​IMG]
    http://www.delorie.com/djgpp/compile/

    CODE#include
    #include

    unsigned long lolcrypt(char *stuff)
    {
    ÂÂÂÂunsigned long key = 0x73b5dbfa;
    ÂÂÂÂwhile(*stuff) {
    ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ*stuff ^= (key & 0xff);
    ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂstuff++;
    ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂkey = ((key31));
    ÂÂÂÂ}
    ÂÂÂÂreturn key;
    }

    int main(int argc, char* argv[])
    {
    ÂÂÂÂint i;
    ÂÂÂÂchar *buff = malloc(0x100);

    ÂÂÂÂmemset(buff, 0, 0x100);

    ÂÂÂÂfor(i=0; i

    I have looking ShowMiiWads and NAND Wii Extractor.It looks that the information that NANDWEx shows is better that Sho...And there is a thing that i dont understand referred to Sho.. .It says that a lot of IOS have 0 bytes.Is it a bug ?because if they have less of 1 Mb it would say 0,0... MB,isn'it?

    Greetings.

    PD: Can you explain me a little your program?I dont understand the origin of unsigned long key = 0x73b5dbfa; for example.
