    Is the wiis mac address logged anywhere on nand? Could you find it from a bootmii nand.bin if you wanted to?

    I guess you could search for the string in a HEXeditor?

    It is hard coded in the hardware so I'm thinking possibly not. :/

    I am not fixing anything. I am just wondering if the wii mac is in the nand.bin anywhere or if it should be recorded for latter use if needed. It would be nice if it was in the nand.bin, if not I like people should write the thing down in a safe place and store it with there nand.bin and such files.

    Why? It's not usable for anything without a working wii and it's also not possible to change it.

    If you have a method of writing a new nand there's no reason you wouldn't be able to access the settings.

    He doesn't want to write a new nand, he just wants to find the mac address.

    Which would be accessible through the settings menu after restoring the nand.bin (which is assumed present because he's proposing storing the mac alongside nand.bin).

    Retrieving the mac address from a mii isn't very feasible since the first three bytes are summed into one. A savegame would be easier.

    Oh hell I must be stupid, if the wii is online you could simply pull the mac from the router.

    That too, but I didn't mention it since the connection might not be setup and wouldn't be configurable in your scenario.

    you cant get the full mac from your miis. it will only give you the last 3 bytes and a crc of the first 3. but you can use that information along with some information from your playlogs in the cdb.vff to bruteforce the first 3 bytes of the mac address really quickly.

    What about shared2/succession/transfer.id? Its first 6 bytes completely match my Wi-Fi MAC address.
