    I formatted my system memory on my wii (4.1e cios14 preloader bootmii in boot2). I did this hoping that i could copy back saves i had backed up to sd card, i copied all ten pages worth. 1st issue was no saves would copy back. Second issue was, when i tired to restore to the nand backup i had done just prior to formatting, it tells me its from a different machine. Why is this, do your keys change???? and i stuck with a clean machine and no saves ??

    Gambia, The
    Some other guy had the same issue on #wiidev. Get BootMii v2 on the wii to restore the nand until it's fixed.

    your console key is changed every time you format the console so the old nand dumps are useless unless you can change the keys

    he would have to dump his new keys and edit his old nand file to remove the old keys from the end of the dump file but it probably could be possible

    yea formatting the system changes your system's keys so you need to use beetwiin, or the new version of bootmii to get your new keys, then use betwiin to merge them to your old NAND.

    Not realy..I get this sometimes to, and I never formated my Wii. But it's not always...Strangely, this only happens with the SDHC Card, a normal SD Card work perfect...since then, I'm using a normal SD Card...

    I dont know if this was a one time thing but i'll post it anyways, On the newest Bootmii beta 3 when i done a nand backup, its doesn't get accepted says its from a different Wii every time
    So can anyone confirm this for me, it would really be appreciated, just try a nand dump made from the newest bootmiivb3 and try to restore from it, and see if it works. maybe i was apost to have the key.bin on the root which i dont think i did. i'll try that later. Actually i'm going to try it again just to be sure

    Technically you're both right...

    From the changelog for the Hackmii 0.3 installer:

    BootMii beta 3 (v1.0):

    Improved the SD card compability
    Increased the backup/restore speed for some SD cards, but decreased it for others
    ... blah blah blah, etc etc.

    Ok i just tried again, and it done the same thing,
    So Is this happening to everyone, No offense TT is great but i dont understand Why they would change the way the keys are saved, Alot of people are going to have trouble with this.
    edit: Dumps made from b1 or b2 get accepted fine though, just so you know
    so alittle confirmation would be fine, so i know the problem isn't on my side otherwise i guess we'll be seeing a update soon

    Edit: seems it has been unofficially confirmed

    I'm pretty sure when i goto info. my console id is the same as it used to be. so i should uninstall beta 3 on boot2 then reinstall beta2 on boot2 and try that?
    Is the console id what has to be the same ?? Also with betwiin, how you need the original keys, i only have a xxyyzz or whatever its called keys.txt. is that what you use. beta 3 must be screwed. cause i cant even make a dump of the newly formatted wii and restore it. says different wii
