    Here is what I have on the ROOT of my SD card (assume they are file folders unless specificed)

    apps
    bootmii
    codemgr1.1
    NeoGammaR8
    riivolution
    txtcodes
    WIISAVES
    background (PNG image)
    boot.elf (ELF file)
    config.dat (DAT file)
    gamerconfig (Text Document)
    installer (Text Document)
    keys.bin (BIN file)
    nand.bin (BIN file) is this the same as bootmii2 to backup my NAND or is that same other application and if so what is it?
    updater (Application)
    wrar393 (Application)

    Now here is what is in my apps folder (again assume they are all file folders unless specified):

    AtaWii-beta1
    bibleQuiz
    brawlstats
    cheatmanager

    rin.pnproj (PNPROJ File)
    rin.pnps (PNPS File)
    rin-GC-Wii-20081216-WHL (WinRAR Zip archive) I could NOT unzip this to a folder can someone please link it again to me so I can unzip it to a folder? I lost it!
    rinwii.dol (DOL File)
    rinwiil.elf (ELF File)
    TBR_Pack_17 (WinRAR archive) I could not undo this one either. Please send me the link again and I will try and unzip it this time as I have many apps files.
    WiiSX-beta1.dol (DOL File)
    WiiSX-beta1 (WinRAR archive) Again I could not find this one. I need the link so I can unzip the files to the folder, not my apps.

    Does this make sense to anyone? What I am trying to do is to do system checks and patchmii repairs so I can try and get my Wii to read cIOS 249 so I can load brawlstats, savegame manager, and DVDX. It will not load for me right now. I have tried soft-modding my Wii but ended up erasing it all again and re-formatting. Do I have bootmii2 based on what I gave you? I want a nand backup is that what I have? I also have downloaded folders that are un-orgnized as shown above where I want to purchase games from all past systems. Please help me. I have ran out of room on my disk to download more ROMs. I need to clear this crap. Based on what I gave you above, what should I definitely delete that I do not even need and why? Is there a substitution? I know this is a lot of crap but please read it carefully and tell me what I do not need for sure and why. I want to download many apps from Homebrew.

    Well first of all I would tell you to copy everything to a folder on your computer and zip it up for a backup before you start deleting anything.

    -----

    Save these files on the SD the rest is optional

    apps - SAVE
    bootmii - SAVE
    boot.elf (ELF file) - SAVE
    WIISAVES - SAVE
    keys.bin (BIN file) - SAVE - this is part of your system backup
    nand.bin (BIN file) - SAVE - this is your system backup

    -----

    Now here is what is in my apps folder (again assume they are all file folders unless specified):

    -----

    Save these files on the SD the rest is optional
    Priiloader_v0_3b - SAVE

    -----

    The easist way to mod the wii so it will play burned games from the disc channel is to use DARKCORP

    Save those files on the root or the apps folder? And I should not even delete one file? Also I tried downloading Mario Party 2 multiple times and the mega manager is stuck in there (2 of them) in the Wii 64 ROMs folder. How do I delete them? It will not let me do it via left click cut or delete. I need to free of space! So how would your SD card (root and apps folder) look like if you were going to soft-mod it or do what I wanted it to do? And HOW in the WORLD do I manually create a backup drive? I can't right click and create a new drive. My local disk is filled with crap. How should I go about doing this? I am very confused as you can tell.

    I'd keep the Homebrew Browser and Dop-Mii and delete everything else in your apps folder. Most of the things you are after can be downloaded using the HBB, and it puts everything in the right place.

    Then run Dop-Mii and select "Scan the Wii's internals (SysCheck)" and save the report and post the results here. If you promise to stick to this thread I will then hold your hand through the rest of what my 8 year old brother managed to do after reading some of the guides people are continuously trying to get you to read.

    Ok man. But seriously don't I need to soft-mod it first? Or not? You saw me soft-modding me Wii in Xflat's thread then I had to delete it and then re-format my SD card it and I did it like 5 tmes. Do you think I need to soft-mod my Wii again?

    If you run that test it will pretty much tell us if you got a cIOS onto the Wii. TBH I think your getting confused so we'll go from here on in as if you've got nothing but the homebrew channel working.

    So what should I do? How do I run the test? What do I keep and HOW do I create a backup disk via using the mouse to find "new"?

    Take a hammer, and SMASHDUDE!!!
    That will erase anything on that SD card!!!
    It escapes me how one person can have such an awful FAIL!!! with a Wii.....
    Evolution by means of natural selection,
    By the definition of fitness, individuals with greater fitness are more likely to contribute offspring to the next generation, while individuals with lesser fitness are more likely to die early or fail to reproduce. As a result, alleles which on average result in greater fitness become more abundant in the next generation, while alleles which generally reduce fitness become rarer. If the selection forces remain the same for many generations, beneficial alleles become more and more abundant, until they dominate the population, while alleles with a lesser fitness disappear.

    I have not been able to successfully soft-mod my Wii and how do I know if I have backed it up on my computer? How do I back it up to my computer? And what else should I delete? I gave you all of my stuff.

    I would run a free program line treesize or windirstat (google it), they can list all the files/folders on your sd card, ranking them from the ones that take up the most space to the least. This will allow u to zero in on which files are even worth removing (a lot of apps are less than 1MB, so not much point to deleting those to free up space)

    Wii modding is not for u, u should give up now... I don't say that often... but common, what kind of a question is that?

    u would back it up the same way u would backup ANY file... for example, if u have a movie on hard drive 1, and u want to lend the movie to a friend, u would copy the file from hard drive 1 to your friends hard drive... ie. hard drive2.

    if u have to ask how to copy and paste files from the sd card to your computer... that is really, REALLY sad

    seriously, stop asking for so much goddamn help every day, spend a week trying to figure it out by yourself, if u still can't figure it out, come back and ask all the Qs u like and then we'll be more motivated to help u... at least then we'll know ur not lazy, but just not tech savvy

    Is keys.bin the backup for nand.bin? I have both but do not really know what either of them means or which I can delete. Also which emulators are available for download on HBB? I should delete all the GameBoy ones right? And where is the DS emulator? I cannot find it!

    no, the keys.bin is your wii's keys, and the nand.bin is your wii's nand... and 1=1, 2=2, apple=apple, etc.

    search for the apps u want, here are some good place to look

    http://webrewwii.blogspot.com/

    http://wiibrew.org

    and of course google

    edit: how could u seriously think the keys.bin is a backup of the nand.bin! your keys should be like 1MB, and your nand should be up to 500x that size!
