Hello there again. :)
I've downloaded a game from Vimm's Lair and I've tried every software to extract it and it gives me a verification error. What did I do wrong and how do I solve this?
Those errors are caused because some important database files (most from Redump) are missing in the NKit tool folders when doing hashes vcerification once finished converting from NKit ISO format (.nkit.iso) to just ISO format (.iso). I have these files in my NKit tool so I will reupload in anywhere for you, and I will explain how to use these files and stop getting verification errors.

Official Link to the NKit Processing tool: https://gbatemp.net/download/nkit.36157/

Greetings ;)

I got all latest Redump dat files and also all database files from Redump and GameTDB WiiTDB and others and I've packed a zip with the latest version of the tool NKit which includes these databases, ready for use.

I will attach it here:

NKit Tool v1.4 with all latest dat files by saulfabreg.zip

EDIT: Since many people reported that as not-working, I've updated the file :)

@SnackyZackyCool any progress with the conversion from .nkit.iso to vanilla .iso? :P
I've been having the same problem as Snacky here, I guess you could consider this as an answer for him, but I used the NKit you linked but it still isn't working, I get the same thing in the transcript, I tried turning off "Full Verify" but same thing. (Posted the Transcript)

Anyone else hate Nkit ISOs? I can't stand them. I can hardly download Wii ISOs anymore without them being in the stupid Nkit format. It wouldn't be so bad if Wii Game Manager supported Nkit, but it doesn't, and I use it to manage my Wii games, and turn the ISOs into .wfsb files.

You're doing the "recover to ISO" option, not the "convert to ISO" option which you must use.

No it’s still on the “convert to ISO”, here’s a small part of the transcript I sent earlier

“2 Passes: [NKit.ISO] >> [1:To ISO] >> [2:Calc Hashes]
To ISO: .1.2.3.4.5.6.7.8.9.10 ~ 0m 20s [MiB: 4482.3] NKit Invalid”

check if you downloaded correctly the nkit.iso file...

This is the file I'm trying out for starters, since I'm trying to hack my vWii, but right now the only thing stopping me is the fact that the Nkit.ISO won't convert, I tried downloading a .wbfs version of this too, and did not enter my drive that I formatted to FAT32, and formatted it in WBFS Manager.

Ok, here's what I do SPECIFICALLY:
1. Download the nkit
2. Download the nkit processor
3. Drag and drop the CORRECT file into the menu
4. Check "calculate hashes" and "Full Verify" and set to Convert to ISO
5. Hit start
6. Get this:

Your source nkit has some partitions stripped. You have to provide these partitions to nkit, putting them inside a specific folder. Google 'nkit recovery partitions'
