    Hi!

    My Wii was stolen last year. :( I recently bought a new one and manage to import all my saves and Miis (my last NAND backup was from 6 month ago, so I lost some save data/progress :cry:). Then I found out I could not edit the Miis from the old NAND because they are from another Wii...

    Ok, I made a copy of them all with SaveGame Manager GX and I edited one by one to change their client id to match my new Wii. The problem now is that some games that depends on Mii save data (like Wii Sports) gives an error saying one or more Miis has been erased from the Mii Channel. I tried to restore the Miis from the old NAND and the old Wii Sports save data but the problem persists.

    I was reading this article in Wii Brew http://wiibrew.org/wiki//shared2/menu/FaceLib/RFL_DB.dat and some threads here:
    http://gbatemp.net/threads/wii-mii-parade.231140/
    http://gbatemp.net/threads/miis-in-fs.186709/
    I wonder if the RFL_DB.dat stores some old data of the Miis that could be causing this problem... Does someone have any suggestion of what I should do? My last hope is this file...

    Any help will be apreciated. Thx. :)

    I know that transferring the RFL_DB.dat file into a fresh virtual NAND will have all Miis intact when loading up the Mii Channel or any Wii games.
    That is however on the same Wii.. I'm not sure if this would work on another Wii, but I don't understand why it wouldn't..

    Perhaps try place the file in a virtual NAND on your Wii..

    idk if this would fix the game errors but to make the miis editable you could have used commandeerMii by pune you can find it here

    Some games may not work after messing around with saves/miis, like Metroid Prime Trilogy.
    However, if you can get the Miis to work in the virtual NAND, you can try replace the RFL_DB.dat file with the one on your Wii's NAND with a file manager homebrew to permanently restore the file to your NAND, or with a NAND editor of some sort after making a NAND dump..
