246w ago - This is a TUT to unbrick your Wii with the internal Rescue Menu. You can do this with and without Starfall.
Without Starfall you have to MOD a GC Controller to press all 4 ways of the digi pad to same time and you need a Original Game Disc with a update on it, higher as your installed FW. If you have a Modchip set to autoboot discĀ's than you can use a backup instead of a Original disc. For Starfall you dono need to MOD your GC Pad.
And you could use Backups if the disc size will match the 4,37GB. I self have testet the semi unbrick disc but it does not work without a modchip. There for I made the "Universal Unbrick Disc" becouse the disc will match the 4,37GB and it hase the FW 3.3 update + the WAD Manager as main.dol in the game partition.I will show you how to start both rescue menuĀ's, with an without starfall and i will use the universal unbrick disc with starfall to upgrade (unbrick) my Wii to FW3.3.
When you could use it?
If you run into a brick and your Wii does not start the menu any more but will boot (green led and spinning drive) you have a good chance to be able to start the Wii internal rescue menu to install a FW update or the system menu.wad + IOS via WAD Manager what will unbrick your Wii if you lucky. If your Wii does not boot any more than your only chance...
246w ago - This app dumps the NAND to USB and SD. Before you can use USB 2.0 you have to install the "modded" version of the USB 2.0 cIOS (cIOS rev7 + USB 2.0), don't worry it, won't overwrite anything, it installs as IOS222.
To extract the dump you need your NAND AES KEY, you can get that by using the "Key Grabber" included it's xyzzy but it dumps nand-key.bin and common-key.bin to sd card. When you run the program there will be a nand-key .bin in the sd card (also a common-key but that's not necessary for unpacking but can be useful for other things )
Copy the nand-key.bin to c:keys (make the folder keys on your c drive if it doesn't exist) and then just run "extract.exe" and select the nand-dump.img file. It will copy the nand.img to the folder where extract.exe is and extract it!
