    Any of you Infectus owners get a Wii Mini NAND dump?

    I'd love to decrypt the System Menu on that thing and take a look inside. It wouldn't really help homebrew in any way, but it sure would be interesting. For one, I'd like to see if they actually removed the code for things like reading the SD, or if they just blocked access to such features. I also want to see if the IOS's are the same.

    I would assume the IOS's are the same, unless they have the new ones from the vWii.

    So you cannot install HBC from USB device?

    They are probably the same. They wouldn't be the same as the ones from the vWii, because those have drivers for the Wii U hardware.

    Nope. There is no way to get an exploit save onto the system without an SD card.

    DeadlyFoez got one. He soldered an SD card slot onto it, but it's not recognized in SSBB, so he was unable to install bootmii. He did make a NAND dump, but without the keys there wasn't much I could figure out. I did get a few things, but I don't know if they will be helpful.

    It has boot1d (latest version) and boot2v4. The latter was something I found quite interesting, since (to my knowledge) all GC-less Wii's that came out like 1.5 years ago have boot2v5.

    There are only 3 bad blocks on the NAND.

    I also dumped a list of all strings in the file. That resulted in a 40MB file (most of which is just random characters) which I don't feel like uploading, but at the end there is a list of all files and directories. I cut it down to that section and it's only 141KB. I've uploaded a text file of it here:
    http://filebin.ca/mt2gIyeeRz1/Titles.txt

    If you translate all the folder names from hex to decimal (00000050 converts to 80, so it holds IOS80), you should be able to figure out every IOS installed on there.

    Does letterbomb still work? But yet again can you run a .dol off of a USB device?

    Letterbomb doesn't work because the SD card isn't recognized. I suspect the code is removed from the IOS and/or System Menu title, because there is still electrical activity on the pins where the SD slot is connected.

    There is no way to load from a USB device unless you can run homebrew already.

    Since the wii doesn't check for things after they are installed, can you edit your nand dump with the HBC already installed? Or can you not get your console keys with this kind of NAND dump? I'm just throwing out ideas and seeing what sticks :P

    Unless you can install Bootmii, you can't get the keys. So unless he gets the SD card working, he's hit a dead end.

    On another note, I filtered out the titles and converted their hex values to decimal. Here is a list of IOS titles installed (plus boot2 and SM):

    Spoiler

    They are in the order that they appear in nand.bin.

    Someone on temp pointed out that there are no stubs other than IOS3 and IOS4. I wonder if that means updates are blocked all together. I've asked DF to run a game with a recent update.

    So BC and MIOS are missing, and this is after running SSBB. I think it's safe to assume that updates are blocked. Unless he can get that SD card working, the only way to get any further on hacking is to brute force the key, which would take forever.
