do you have the correct folder structure?

did you embed armboot into nswitch?

did you try the github link or the svn one?

folder structue:
has to be on the root of the sd card (not in a "nands" folder or similar)

armboot/nswitch:
as far as i remember you have to use raw2c to get .c and .h files which you can use for nswitch

but I wrote something about this whole neek/vwiii thingy some time ago, which I try to find as it contains additional info (I did also struggle first to get neek working on vwii)

edit:
this is the thread, maybe you can find additional info:
https://gbatemp.net/threads/build-sneek-for-vwii-linux-helper-script.580819/

edit2:
regarding nswitch:

-> apps/SNEEK/
  • boot.dol (build from nswitch with armboot from mini-tree-mod [raw2c armboot.bin provides armboot.c and armboot.h])

ensure you're using python2 not 3

(it seems I had also issues, from the script:
sed -i '/#!\/usr\/bin\/env python2/d' mini-tree-mod/makebin.py
# force python2, python3 is usally default nowadays (TODO: switch to python3)
sed -i '[email protected]@[email protected]' mini-tree-mod/Makefile
)

just some notes:

- if you want/need to change region of sneek emunand you can use SettingsEdit (windows) on pc
- You can install more wads, but then you have to use sort48+, which has a issue on vwii as it wont show/recognize wiiu menu channel as system channel (at least the version I tested behaved like this, not sure if there is one which fixes this)
- Dont forget that you can also use "regular" cios emunand which works for a lot of games, so maybe just install the one which wont work there in sneek emunand
