    I think he was asking, does it have to be the raw files, or can it be the nand.bin backup from Bootmii

    This is also what I'd like to know... do we have to have the raw file structure, or can we have an nand.bin file for the nand emulation

    I'm fairly sure it has to be raw.

    How to do that, is anyone's guess, lol.

    I'm assuming instructions will follow when waninkoko releases the Nand emulation app.

    Ok i got this working, but whats the best to use Fat or Fat32, cause i got it working with fat32 but it seems alittle buggy, cause after i install the first wad to the Nand Emu, it normally bugs out on the next wad when i go to install. -1error but the first wad always installs correctly

    edit: oh and to get it working, just do a FS-Dump you'll get a Wii_FS folder just rip everything out of the folder and place all the Wii Folders on the root of your sd card, pretty simple. I'm using USB Hard right now though,

    yea fstoolbox would more than likely be best. I had a old FS Nand Dump laying around so i used that, I think i used originally used the program FSDump. Not sure

    you can't not yet anyways, i just confirmed they installed by going through the files on the USB hard drive, and checking if they installed.

    Well i used FSDump this one, its a really old app though, FSToolBox is newer and i'd think it would work also

    http://www.megaupload.com/?d=ZIK79RGO

    just rip everything out of the Wii_FS folder and place on root. I've only tried this on a fat32 USB Hard drive so far

    Waninkoko hasn't exactly explained what it does, but everyone has an educated guess...

    You can make your SD card your NAND, so instead of 512MB, you'll have 2-16gig, or even a HD partition... so you could have 10billion blocks free...

    THEORETICALLY...

    Until Waninkoko tells us exactly what we can do with it, no one will really know!
