    Ok I sent in my Wii to Nintendo and they replaced the main circuitboard. Before I sent in my Wii I made a nand dump. Do you think I can restore my wii with the old nand dump, or do you think It will not work due to the circuit board change? What I mean to say is will I successfully be able to restore my Wii with a nand dump? Will the nand keys Match?

    no cause the keys will probably be different for the Wii could try making a new nand dump to get the new keys and then use betwin

    do a bootmii nand backup on your new wii
    that will give you a key.bin file that is needed to make the old nand dump usable with your wii

    old dump + new keys + betwiin = success [​IMG]

    Dump the new NAND with bootmii, and check the keys.bin file, inside, there is a line:
    ConsoleID: xxxxxxx

    The xxxxx is the unique console ID. If thats changed, its a new NAND and it wont restore. I don't know how to "convert" another console's NAND to a different one.

    Actually, I think Bootmii shows this console ID on the dump screen as well. Maybe wouldn't actually have to dump the new one to see the ID...

    PS -- the poster above mentions a method to perhaps do this:

    everything... well, take that with a grain of salt. if any info stored on good nand-blocks gets written on any bad block on the new wii, the info might be lost. I don't know if the program handles that now. but everything should be just as before. EVERYTHING.
