    Wait, do you rename the boot2 files boot.bin or boot2.bin?

    Be sure tnod32 if you use it, or it would not download the exe files proper from devkitpro under windows 7 64bit
    (at least i had that problem)

    Is it normal that it compiles with alot of warnings?

    Mayby i should download and install python26 64bit instead of 32bit?

    Great guide. Thanks! Works perfectly, one thing to add to the above... when you go to command prompt, you may have to type "c:\" first, mine starts in D: for some reason. It may be worth adding this too for completeness:

    Filestructure - SNEEK:
    sd:/bootmii/armboot.binboot2.bin
    di.bin
    your NAND FS dumpusb:/games/
    Filestructure - UNEEK:
    sd:/bootmii/armboot.binboot2.binusb:/boot2.bin
    your NAND FS dump
    Source: http://rvlution.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=30

    Also, I believe boot2_di.bin means you get no DVD support.

    I managed to compile with the normal guide, but I can only get it to run from SD. For uneek, what cIOS do you have to be on, and what IOS and base IOS to you have to install it to.

    I also might not have the right cluster size, but I canĀ“t tell because partition magic claims my whole drive is bad (2 partitions, one for wbfs, and one for nand emu etc.) Is there any small tool I can use to check/resize the cluster size.

    Thanks in advance if anyone can help.

    Thanks ChokeD for writing up a quick tutorial on successfully compiling SNEEK. I learned how to compile SNEEK 2 weeks ago, but I hope that this can make it easier for people that are new to SNEEK so that they don't need to read through 130+ pages of posts on the original thread to figure it out.

    I just added some file/folder structure thanks to wilsoff just now.

    If this does not work for you and you DID produce the files without error you may need a few other files included to what you already have.

    1 file I know for sure of is the

    region.bin file

    this helps identify your Wii's region to sneek as sneek by default is set to EUR

    another file is the font.bin file

    this fixes the black screen upon boot in some cases.

    these files are to be placed in the x:\root with the NAND

    You can find both of these in the SNEEK2 thread.

    As a suggestion, it might be worth it to include the following:

    -instructions on how to access the game selection menu on 4.2e
    -how to build a minimalistic NAND from scratch using showmiiwads
    -a description of slot.bin (for those who don't have 4.2e and need to switch games)

    Again, thanks for writing up this tutorial.

    I would like a description of those myself. [​IMG]

    and if someone comes up with it I'll add it and put them in the credits.

    That's the best I can do.

    With normal SNEEK, does USB loading works?

    Well, I don't feel qualified to discuss the game selection menu because I have not tried it out yet and my emulated NAND is 4.2U. I hope that someone that is savvy with porting offsets in preloader can look at the source and change the offsets for 4.2U. One of these days I'm going to region change my emulated NAND and mess around with the game selection menu.

    As for slot.bin, it is a file that is automatically generated by SNEEK when games are detected in the USB drive. As games are installed, new values for them are generated in hex.

    For example, on my NAND Call of Duty 3 is 00 00 00 00 since I installed it first, and NSMBW is 00 00 00 01 since I installed it second etc...

    If you want to switch games, you need to open slot.bin with a hex editor and change the value. For example, if I want to play NSMBW, I edit slot.bin to 00 00 00 01. Hope this helps.

    As a final suggestion: you could include this link for installing games.

    that'll happen if you rename the files to boot.bin... rename them to boot2.bin.

    For me having the armboot.bin and the boot2_sd as boot2.bin works but the others dont.
