    I've just downloaded Segher's Wii Tools from WiiBrew...and WTF?

    I want it because I have just dumped my NAND to my SD card and I want to decrypt it, and I read on this forum that to do this I would need Segher's Wii Tools. But I have no idea what I am do with all these files everywhere? I'm really confused. Please help...

    You need to compile them. That's source code.

    But it's very, VERY hard to compile them, as they tend not to like the compiler and there's not a released compiled version anywhere.

    Well the zip file also contains the compiled executables, you just need a linux os (or something like cygwin (then you need to compile the sources) ) to make them work...

    quoting from wiibrew

    This archive contain's the source for segher's tools for the wii, as well as pre-compiled applications. These can only be run in Linux as far as I know. To use one of them, open the terminal and type in the following: ./(program) (binary) ex: ./zestig wiiNAND.img You must also have the keys present in .wii ex: /home/root/.wii/sd-key The NAND-AES Key to be used with zestig must be in a default folder ex: /home/root/.wii/default/NAND-key

    So, I need Linux? Damn. Is there no way of extracting everything from this dumped NAND?

    Using linux is not so hard man, just get a single cd linux distro like pardus (http://www.pardus.org.tr/eng/index.html)
    And install it into a virtual machine. You can use Microsoft's Virtual Pc or Vmware. Even there are ready to run virtual machines out there.
    Mono installed in OpenSuse as a ready virtual machine image for Vmware : http://www.go-mono.com/mono-downloads/download.html

    I know easier said then done yet till now not needed... I remember installing slackware into my 850MB hdd backing things up into a single cd at the friends when the cd burners were overpriced. Then partitioning, formatting, fiddling with boot managers... well now there is virtualization.

    Another option is someone can provide you a shell account to run those programs but I doubt anyone will.

    Come on. Nothing is wrong with Linux.

    Just get a live CD from http://ubuntu.com/ and maybe even install it. >_>
    Jeez.

    You can probably compile them for windows easily. Use MinGW and OpenSSL (Or whatever encryption library it uses) ...

    I've tried MinGW, but I can't even find an executable file...And the ones that are just bring up a Comnand Prompt and then disappear.
