    I was wondering what the best nand extractor would be to EXTRACT ON USB. I've tried bootmii, but I don't think it works with usb. I am running 4.3 with Waninkoko's cIOSX rev 20. Thanks, M1r0

    spend the 10 USD on a 2GB SD Card and dump with bootmii. Then you can transfer the dump from the SD Card to USB, HDD, Burn to CD or whatever.


    Of course that is not your question I just feel like being silly today.

    [​IMG] I thought all caps would help emphasize my point. I guess not. [​IMG] Does sdhc work? Didn't for me. And I managed to lose my sd card. It will probably turn up sometime.

    If I remember correctly you NEED a regular SD (NOT SDHC) SD Cards that are 2GB and under are regular SD.

    Get an SD (non-SDHC) card (that is your only choice). USB does not work with bootmii. If you want the best option then bootmii dump to an SD card is it, otherwise you are out of luck.

    Are you saying there is no USB NAND Dumper? I know bootmii is the best, but are there any alternatives for USB?

    FSToolbox is open source, which mean it is of course possible to add USB support to it.

    [​IMG] I'll try, not the best coder.

    Edit: Does it work with 4.3? Do I need my nand keys?

    FS Toolbox is a NAND browser that can dump files from the nand to sd card and write files from sd card to the nand

    Bwahahahaha! [​IMG]

    (I tend to ignore threads that are vague or too overly begging for attention)


    But on-topic: what's the point in being able to dump your wii on your USB drive if the only way to restore it is by using bootmii (meaning: SD card needed)?
    Sorry mate, but there are no valid alternatives. You say it yourself: bootmii is the best. And for a backup program, "the best" entails reliability. Even if there was another program out there...would you trust it to actually restore your wii to a solid state if you can't rest assured that it actually works?

    I've heard not-so-good stories of bootmii as IOS as well...but I don't think anyone will discuss that it is the best in what it does.

    NAND backups are required for NAND emulation with SNEEK and UNEEK. Since SNEEK alone is crap, UNEEK is the way to go and this requires a NAND backup on a USB drive. It requires a decrypted NAND backup which you get 1:1 with FSToolBox. For some reason BootMii NAND backups do not work always with SNEEK/UNEEK because the LED drive flash implies that important files are missing without SNEEK/UNEEK cannot boot.

    So, I would say there is a good point in being able to dump NAND backups straight on USB drives.

    Good point. I hadn't considered it from that angle.


    I could note that modmii can build a complete nand from scratch, but being able to mess with your own dump is a much cleaner solution*. Otherwise, you'll have to use savegame manager gx to extract your savegames and miis, programs like wii mod to pack the installed channels as wad and take a note of your system's settings...and then use all that data to almost manually get it all on that precreated emulated nand.





    *the pun in this sentence is intended.

    I don't think there is a USB dumper. Simple FS Dumper says it can but I've never gotten it to work. Maybe it's a cIOS problem. I know BootMii works fine with my SDHC card, if that helps.

    Judging by some other things with cIOS, try simple FS dumper but with cIOS rev17 installed. I know WAD creator doesn't work with cIOS newer than that. USB may work that way.

    I have an sdhc, I might try it with that. Wiibricker assumes correctly that I am trying a UNEEK install. I just realized that either way, I need an sd so I can place the files for bootmii. Why can't bootmii have usb support!?

    It was probably too much effort or would take up too much space to add the USB stack into it.
