    Hi,

    I'd like to have my Wii in virgin State ... I've read several ways to acomplish that like AnyRegionChanger and AnyTilteDeleter. I still have some questions. Currently I have FW 4.0e with cIOS and HBC installed and running.

    First would it possible to use a virgin NAND to get my Wii to vigrin state ? or is the NAND encryted per system ?
    Could I format / reset the Wii without loosing BOOTMii ? It's installed as boot2 here ...

    Thanks
    Geni

    If you format BootMii will still be there but don't format cause some people have had other problems

    The contents of your NAND are encrypted specific to your Wii. If you have a backup of YOUR Wiis NAND you can get it back to virgin state with that but not with the NAND from another console.

    Hi,

    is it possible (known keys / brute force) to decrypt your own NAND ?? and if yes would it also be possible to encrypt it for anothere console ?

    It would be nice to have a way to create a virgin NAND for every (HB enabled) Wii out there ...

    That makes no sense. In order to do a NAND dump, he needs homebrew; therefore his wii isn't virgin.

    Use bannerbomb to install bootmii. Get nand dump. Then later time restore it and use bannerbomb to uninstall bootmii.

    Or with a NAND flasher (Eg. infectus2 modchip)

    @OP there is a way to get a NAND backup from another Wii, decrypt it, and then flash it into another Wii, but you really don't want to know about it, even I wish I didn't know about this, you need:

    both Wii's keys
    a NAND programmer/flasher (hardware and software)
    $10 us dls
    the e-mail of bushing


    To do:

    Send the backup and keys to bushing, along with your $10 bucks
    when you receive your decrypted NAND backup, just flash it into the other Wii


    Cons:

    Well....you'll have the same Wii twice, as in S/N wise, obviously you can have WiiShop accounts in both Wiis, but I pretty much guess that can bring you problems, and you can change the friend ID if you like with the "BackupDisc" but you'll still have same S/N in both


    it is better to just uninstall the cIOS (if you installed one) with cIOS uninstaller or AnyTitleDeleter (IOS 249-250), Uninstall DVDx, ATD to delete HBC, use the NAND cleaner posted in "The Preloader Guide" to delete hacks.ini, installed .dol and preloader itself, and format if you like, but this last one will erase even your boughted games and their tickets, so no re-download for free...!!
