Indiana or Smash. bannerbomb doesnt work to 4.3
Yeah, Nand is to backuped wii cause u got keys.bin
and DONT downgrade it! stay in 4.3 if u are using it now. 4.3 can run all homebrews and have all advanteges as older 4.1 and 4.2 SM. just new way to disable/remove hacks.

Your backup will NOT work on another wii and WILL cause any other wii to break... This is because every wii has it's individual private key that's used to encrypt the NAND... This is to prevent people from desoldering the NAND and using a physical reader on it... Additionally it prevents you from switching out nands.

It may be possible to decrypt a nand (programs already do this) and then reencrypt it for another wii... but I honestly don't know if there is any other data stored that could cause issues with that.

get the saved indiana pwns, load game, move to npc and swtich to run exploit. then follow the modmii guide step by step! dont jump any step.
after complete process you will have cIOS 249, 250, 222, 223 and 224 to load ur games from usb or disc (not disc channel).
enjoy it

There is an app designed to convert a NAND from one Wii to another. You do need the keys.bin from both systems though.
