Is it possible to re-encrypt a NAND dump from one Wii to another?

    Given the failure of my previous threads (see here), I thought I'd take a different approach.

    My sisters have a Wii that has never been hacked before. They only use it to play Just Dance and similar games (Wii Fit and such too), and I recently updated it to 4.3U for them using Wi-Fi.

    So while I was home over Thanksgiving, I did the Smash Stack exploit and ran the HackMii installer. Installed The Homebrew Channel and BootMii as an IOS (their Wii is a newer one without a vulnerable boot2), and rebooted the system.

    Started it in maintenance mode (you know, pressing + and - while pressing A on the Wii Remote) and opened up HBC, then BootMii and made a NAND backup. Oddly, Super Smash Bros. Brawl showed up in the message board play history even in maintenance mode, but not HBC.
    Anyway, after I did that, using BootMii I returned to HBC, ran the HackMii installer a third time (BootMii rebooted it so I had to do HBC using Stack Smash again) and removed both BootMii and the HBC.

    Upon power cycling, no more HBC and it didn't show up in my play history either (probably because deleting the ticket would remove that or something)

    So, two questions.

    1. Can I decrypt that NAND dump using the keys.bin I was given, and then re-encrypt it to my older Wii's keys?
    2. I'm sure just installing and uninstalling HBC by itself is fairly harmless, since the tickets would be wiped with a system format anyway, but what about BootMii? When installed as an IOS and then uninstalled, does it leave anything behind that a system format wouldn't fix?

    Bushing created a tool called biitween (or betwiin) that can do that but it is slow and doesn't handle bad blocks. giantpune also created a similar tool that does go much faster and does handle bad blocks, although I forget the name.

    I highly doubt it. He has better things to do.
