    Well I was starting to make another back up, I Had one before I softmodded, and now After softmodding, I decided to pay attention, what does FACTORY Bad Block mean? I went on google and it says wii's were shipped out with bad blocks alrady, ( I Have 504,902,1032,2539,3609) Is this normal for everybody? That webpage probably had the answer to it but im just wondering

    Solid-state memory devices like the NAND are going to almost always have a few bad sectors when they're made. Fewer than 8 is completely normal; it's also possible to have no bad blocks or perhaps 20 or more. It shouldn't affect your Wii use or backups in any way.

    and an improper number at that. I should do the math and figure out how big of a space that would be. Considering 512mb (usable) is 4096 blocks, the thing would be enormous in space if it had the same flash setup that theres 64 pages per block, 2048 bytes per page with also 64 bytes spare for ECC.
