    It's possible if you can get the Wii key from your cousin's Wii (via a method I wont go into here, try google) and then do some massive coding to put it into your NAND backup so its registering as his Wii key. You will brick your cousin's Wii by just using yours on his without modifications. Speaking from experience, its very risky to swap NANDs between consoles, and recoding the nand file is very tedious. If you have a lot of coding experience, sure -- if not, then just spend the few minutes and set his up.

    Hey pm me the method because I sreiously don't know since the wii is low level it won't run any homebrew or stuff so I can't dump the keys via Bushings program.

    If you can't use zyzzy to get the key, then you might as well give up -- especially if you're asking me to PM how to decrypt a NAND to put a new key in it. It's not something a few lines of text can explain.

    But seriously, how is doing this any quicker or easier than just bombing his Wii and setting it up? It takes all of what.. 30 mins tops waiting on network installations? It will take you much longer to decrypt a NAND and re-encrypt it assuming you even know how to read hex.

    true that man, why risk making a small coding mistake that can brick a wii beyond recovery?
