    I read somewhere on another thread on this forum and another forum that each wii has certain bad blocks, so if you use a nand dump off another wii it could write to that bad block and cause issues (brick) maybe, I am sure there are other reasons too why its a bad idea to use someones nand dump

    you need a dump with your own keys, theres a program that lets you change the keys but I forgot what it's called, I'll look for it.

    fyi, not recommended to use betwiin unless your wii is beyond repair... its still not perfect (I think it doesn't compensate for bad blocks in critical places)

    You cannot change the keys. Or at least, not on your own Wii. You can use a tool to change one dump to be compatible with the other wii however there can be no bad blocks in a place where the other Wii (your donor-Wii) doesn't have them.

    i think there is another restriction/requirement, your boot1 with the other wii must be the same... or boot2 version... i dont remember, but it should be in the readme, just research before actually using it
