    which tool can i use to delete folders/files from the filesystem? i have some blank saves, and i deleted everything in any title deleter and still there are some folders left in the places where the saves are located... and still i have the blank saves... i tried fs toolbox 0.4 but it cannot delete files, it can only dump from and to sd and patch files...

    Have you tried Wiiexplorer? I believe it at lets you browse the NAND. I'm not sure if it gives you write access, but I'm sure it could if you patched the source for write-access and to run it under the correct IOS with permissions.

    Your other option would be to backup your NAND, remove the entries and re-flash. This could be hyper-dangerous, as you would have to still avoid bad blocks. Not for the faint of heart.

    why would you have to avoid bad blocks when deleting something?

    I suppose it depends on how you do the deleting. If you do it manually (zapping the entries by editing the dump, by hand) there wouldn't be a problem.

    If you do it by unpacking the dump, deleting the entries, then repacking it, then it's my understanding that the files won't be in the same order block-for-block. No reason why it couldn't be done by modifying the tools available; you'd be able to solve the main problem of switching Betwiin dumps as well.

    you can delete entries from the filesystem by just editing the superblocks. no need to unpack/decrypt/dump/repack or anything else

    You'd need to redo the HMACs.

    so basicly what i need to do is...? i have no idea how to edit source as i'm no coder... and i didn't even know about wiiexplorer being able to read nand... :s but still i have no clue on how to find what i'm looking for if the nand.bin isn't unpacked, and when unpacked i have no tool to repack it...
