    Hello peeps!

    Anyone know how to find or read the serial # from a nand backup created from bootmii? I ask this becuase I've gone through about 4 wii's of which I made nand dumps for and I can keep track of what nand belongs to what system. I have recently just started to name my new nand dumps files with serial numbers to keep track. I know Ill need to go back and probably do this for the rest and start keeping track however if anyone knows how please do tell.

    Any info or help provide is much appreciated. Thanks!

    extract the dump with showmiiwads.
    decrypt the setting.txt
    read the serial number from it

    This was a little mission for me but I figured it out. After finding this thread http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=194...p;#entry2432173

    I researched, learned and downloaded visual c++ 2008 express to complie the code and I was set. (First time using C++ ever, but it was only a cut and paste job [​IMG])

    Thanks for the info!
