    Hello, I was unable to find any news about that here, so either I missed a thread or there is really not a thread about that yet. Anyways, it seems that crediar decided to work on sneek again and has release a couple of new revisions in the last couple of days. The most significant changes are support for the real NAND and DiscEx ripping straight from the Wii. To showcase sneek running on a real NAND he uploaded a youtube video, which you can see below. I have compiled all changelogs since r170 for your convenience :)

    changelog r183-170

    Now has anyone tried running sneek on real nand yet? Does ntfs work?

    Crediar wrote at his video:
    SNEEK installed as IOS80 on a real NAND.
    This does NOT use the SD card or USB device for the NAND fs, the real NAND is used!

    I cant find at the changelog that ntfs is supported.

    EDIT:
    @T.Kuranari: can you tell me how did you compiled the new revs of sneek, because i have trouble with my anti virus tool and IOSKPatch, if i donwloaded this files.

    Your anti virus tool is stupid and all other who think that IOSKPatch is a virus.

    well if you trust the download( it's coming from crediar, so yes I trust it). the suspend , put it to sleep or what ever. then download. then after your done compiling an stuff. reset you anti.
    HMMmm. i see mybe what this will do. " support for the real NAND and DiscEx ripping " since sneek2o hit. reading wbfs, the only reason why i see mybe a reason to do this.. is using the usb to be used, as a backup player for gc games. cause the usb/sd will not have a nand.

    if we want to install sneek into real nand > ios80, only we must replace the 0000000e.app (from ios80 v6944) with the new kernel.bin (which we must rename to 0000000e.app)?
    i dont have bootmii in boot2 so i dont want to test it.

    I think shortz1994 was just writing down what he was thinking.
    AVG anti virus detects IOSKpatch.exe as a virus. You can add that exe to a list of trusted programs so that you can use it again.
    Furtheron,he is wondering what the benefits are of using the new sneek/uneek, since neek2o can play wbfs backups.
    He was wondering if maybe dml could play gc backups from the usb drive with this, as the nand is no longer on usb or sd card, so basically,
    access to those should be possible again.

    I am unsure, but I think the Ioskpatch.exe hash changes when you copy it from one folder to another. In that case, it would not be very abnormal for a virus
    scanner to detect it as a suspicious program. It's maybe a sort of reverse engineering protection, I don't know.

    @FGOD

    Make sure you are on system menu 4.3
    download the ios80 wad. Open it with showmiiwads.
    Rename kernel.bin to 0000000e.app and replace the one in the ios with this one.
    Install that wad in ios slot 80.

    Don't do this without having bootmii as boot2 and a backup of your nand. If something goes wrong, you will brick your wii.

    I repeat:

    Don't do this without having bootmii as boot2 and a backup of your nand. If something goes wrong, you will brick your wii.

    As S(U)neek didn't work very well together with CIOS, I doubt the real nand install will like Cios.

    SNEEK on real NAND is basically a USB loader that runs on the system menu and completly without cIOS. I would love to try it out, but crediar has to provide instructions first, as I don't have bootmii in boot2 and am not willing to risk a brick. Can someone contact crediar for providing official instructions?

    and it would probably be compatible with dm/dml and nmm?

    I see no reason why it wouldn't be compatible with dml and nmm. Assuming you installed those on real nand as well.

    i don't see the purpose of this. i appreciate his work, but why use real nand, isn't the point that we have more space and aren't touching the real nand with SNEEK? I guess for faster loading times.

    I wouldn't call this SNEEK, I would say its the system menu with DI Menu. It is cool, I'll give it that.

    My guess is that this is a way to simplify the SNEEK installation for users wanting to use it mostly for DML/NMM. Considering it is using the real NAND instead of any storage device, its compatibility would hardly vary from one console to another (taking into account that almost every Wii is on 4.3 right now).

    In any case, thanks for the instructions, obcd. I'll test this feature ASAP (yes, I have BootMii as Boot2).

    EDIT: no luck. The drive just blinks indefinitely.

    @PabloACZ: do you have the sneek folder and the same kernel.bin and di.bin on your usb drive, too?

    EDIT: maybe you need the bootmii folder on your sd.

    I already have the 'sneek' folder in my SD card. And no, I don't usually use UNEEK+DI, so I don't think it is necessary to have the binaries in the USB drive as well.

    If it helps, I replaced the 0000000e.app file from the IOS80 v6944 with the kernel.bin from SNEEK+DI; haven't tried with the normal binary (boot2_sd.bin). And yes, I removed the emulated NAND from the SD card.

    P.S.: if I get this to work, I'll also test DML. I already installed the modified BC to the real NAND.

    We tried a similar approach to boot neek2o without sd card. The only difference was that we installed the modified IOS80 in a different slot. reloading that ios should bring us in the neek2o environment. (as we used the neek2o kernel.bin.)
    It sometimes worked, but with priiloader installed on the emulated nand, the system menu refused to start. It gave an error about the stm eventhandler being in a wrong state.

    If the nand files come from the real nand, shouldn't di.bin come from there as well? And there is also the font.bin file. Where will the system search for that one?

    That's a good question. Maybe we have to include them in the IOS80 as 'new' modules, or use an unreleased tool to save them in a specific directory on the real NAND. Maybe asking Crediar wouldn't be a bad idea at all.

    EDIT:

    It seems I was right about the 'unreleased tool'.
