My Wii's been acting up recently. It could be the homebrew or the hardware itself, but I'm not sure at this point. I've tried updating it to 4.3 (it was previously on 4.1) and re-exploiting it but it's still finicky. Video sometimes refuses to output, .WADs installed onto the SD card sometimes won't boot, GameCube games won't boot the first time, syscheck won't even run anymore; it's a mess. I've ran out of options, so I've decided to restore it to its factory settings. Now, I want to keep my saves and everything, so I was thinking of just turning off the copy protect flag and copying all my saves to my SD card, then putting them back in once it's done restoring. Would that be feasible? Also, since my SD card might be part of the problem, I want to start fresh with it too. I have a bunch of games on it, though, and I want to keep them, so I was thinking of extracting them as .WADs and re-installing them once the Wii is reformatted. Is that possible? I remember reading about a homebrew app that could do this, but I've forgotten the name. Being inexperienced in backing up a Wii, I'm asking for a little insight. Would my methods be okay? Is there a simpler method? Anything I should be wary of while doing this? If all else fails and the Wii's hardware is dying, would I be able to transfer this backup onto a new one? I hope someone can help. Thanks!
