    Hi all.
    Recently, I managed to install some applications+Neogamma+Usbloader GX on a WII 4.2U.

    If I'll run BOOTmii and I'll do a Flash to SD card.
    Will I be able to flash another 4.2E with all the programs installed on it?

    Thanks for your answers

    Yes you can, as long as you have a way to flash to the other 4.2E and have the keys of that Wii. You will have to do a conversion of the NAND dump from the original Wii to the 4.2E Wii, and Im not sure how well that will go with an U --> E model. That is however NOT what you are looking for I think [​IMG]. As pepxl why not simply use apps installed on SD? You would ofcourse still need the HB channel on the 4.2E Wii (or a way to boot it).

    I'd tried to work with this tutorial:
    http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-faqs-g...ny-4-2-wii.html

    but something went wrong ( wii is still working of course )
    But I only succes to play original discs but not backuped ones.
    Also, trying to play NTSC on PAL isnt possible via Neogamma.

    therefore the question came up.

    I got stucked in his part:

    You probably have IOS 249 with another base than ios 38. You need a base 38 version to install WAD files.

    The hardware for all Wii's except Korean are exactly the same.

    Korean Wii's just have kkey.bin as well as key.bin.

    The korean key is stored in hardware that exists on all Wii's. You "just" need to write to it, to convert back and forth.
