    Hi guys, I've got new questions about NAND reflashing:
    1. Can you guys give me a tutorial or a forum that gives a tutorial on NAND reflashing?
    2. What items do I need to reflash the NAND? I have an Infectus modchip
    3. Do I need the keys in reflashing the nand?
    4. Can Reflashing always fix Wiis?
    5. Why do I have errors when I try to reflash my NAND to the NAND chip? I don't have the keys
    6. How long does it take to reflash?
    7. Do I need a specific program to reflash it?
    8. Can an emulated NAND reflash the NAND chip?

    You do need the NAND keys to reflash it for sure.

    No idea about a NAND backup tho but I think thats also needed.

    1. Can you guys give me a tutorial or a forum that gives a tutorial on NAND reflashing?
    - No specific instructions, refer to your chip-reflashing tool how to do that.
    2. What items do I need to reflash the NAND? I have an Infectus modchip
    - Infectus is fine, but there's a specific modchip that natively supports Wii, http://www.progskeet.com .. There's a NAND Clip and pre-defined software that has the options and offsets for Nintendo Wii, in all models and NAND chip types
    3. Do I need the keys in reflashing the nand?
    - Yes and No. Yes if you are going to use a donor NAND and No if you are using your backup NAND.
    4. Can Reflashing always fix Wiis?
    - Software Brick... Yes
    5. Why do I have errors when I try to reflash my NAND to the NAND chip? I don't have the keys
    - There should be no errors when reflashing in relates of keys, just imagine a normal flash drive. That's all. Key is only necessary for Wii software operation.
    6. How long does it take to reflash?
    - Depends, Progskeet do it for 3-4minutes.
    7. Do I need a specific program to reflash it?
    - Hardware Re-flasher you use, yes.
    8. Can an emulated NAND reflash the NAND chip?
    If you're talking about SNEEK or UNEEK, no. Since it totally blocks the NAND chip access, unless you done something on SNEEK/UNEEK's code.
