    I think if you dump the settings.txt, it has it perhaps. Dunno how to dump it though. NAND FS Dumper perhaps?

    I'm trying to build a dios mios thing with sneek & I'm having a hard time so i found this app called
    sneek-tools-gc-edition
    & it is suppose to do most of the work but I have to put my serial number for it to start.....

    like megazig said, its encrypted. and i thought that "tool" you're trying to get working was discontinued.

    Try this tool: http://www.mediafire.com/?8bzl4s334h44jsg

    Download and run it. In the app, click Open and select your setting.txt. The serial number will be shown along with a lot of other information about your console.

    He installed a custom case (or someone else did) so their is no longer a serial code there.
    Please read the thread more carefully before posting next time, but well done helping out on your 3rd post.

    He means the cardboard box the console came in from the store. The SN is printed on a sticker on one of the side panels.

    I just fired up the pinkfish disk. It does indeed display the serial. It's the first one in the list on the right side.

    It's an illegal warez disc that someone leaked online long ago. Nintendo use it internally for servicing Wiis or whatever, but somebody leaked it and most people on GBAtemp don't care about the law, so downloaded it illegally.
