This is a long story. For a long time, I've had Bootmii installed as boot2 on my launch-day Wii. I've also used the HBC, HBB, and other homebrew applications, but never got into modifying IOSes. A while ago, I got a Wii U, so I backed up the Wii's NAND, removed the HBC and Bootmii as boot2 to be safe, and used the transfer tool to bring over games and saves and whatnot, reinstalling Bootmii as boot2 on my Wii later. Shortly afterward I realized I couldn't use the VC games on the Wii U because the Wii U lacks GC ports, so I restored the NAND backup I made prior to the transfer. Today, I decided to get Mario Tennis via Club Nintendo. Since I need to use the old Wii for VC games, I went to redeem the download ticket on there. The shop channel wanted me to update first, so I did that, then downloaded Mario Tennis. Once I got back to the Wii Menu, I discovered Nintendo deleted all the other games on my Wii. Unfortunately, the solution is not as simple as restoring the old NAND backup, putting all the VC games on the SD card, and trying to move them over to the newer NAND backup with Mario Tennis on it. The Wii just coyly says "The data may not have been moved" and does nothing. Then I thought, maybe I can just restore the old NAND backup and try to install a Mario Tennis WAD onto it with some kind of tool. I spent many, many hours today delving into the world of IOSes and CIOSes, but no matter what I tried, WAD Manager 1.7 would always give me a -1022 error. I tried d2x base 56, 57, and 38, and Hermes base 37. I'm pretty sure it's not my WAD - I packed it from my own NAND backup, and it will run in Dolphin (not that I can see anything, but I can hear it working). I also repacked a TruchaSigned WAD, and that didn't work either. Always that -1022 error. Technically I can just switch between NANDs to play the different VC games, but that's a hell of a lot of work, not the safest option, and not something my sisters can do if they want to switch from Mario Tennis to Yoshi's Story. Do any of the great minds here have sister-friendly solutions/suggestions? Is there a better way to try and get Mario Tennis on the old NAND? Should I look into NAND emulation? I just want to be able to play all the VC games I paid cash and coins for.
