    WC24 Data Removal Tool.

    This is a very simple application I wrote two days ago, which deletes the WC24-related data from the /shared2 directory in the NAND filesystem. It aims to recover consoles from a Mailbox Brick by letting the System Menu regenerate the missing WC24 files, instead of replacing them using FSToolBox (pretty much like SNEEK also does when the whole /shared2 directory is missing).

    I made this tool to help Krafter recover a Wii he was working on, but sadly it turned out to have a NAND ECC block failure, something that is completely on another level for me.

    Source code is included (not that it is something great, it's just a for loop ). It supports both full hardware access (HW_AHBPROT register disabled) and IOS reload.

    This is awesome. I've actually considered making this a couple times, but never got around to it. It's definitely a great contribution to the community.

    I agree. Like I told him in the YABDM thread, I've seen multiple Wiis with a mailbox/message board brick that couldn't be fixed using FSToolbox. This will hopefully solve some of those issues and prevent the need for a format.

    So, what would happen if this was used on a Wii U?
    The Mail Brick could happen on a Wii U, right?

    That's a good question. I still don't know for sure, since no one has been able to replicate it (as far as I know), and no one has the guts to find out for themselves, since there's no brick protection.

    I suppose the vWii System Menu will just regenerate them, just like its Wii counterpart does.

    You should be able to get a mailbox brick. It's also logical that it would regenerate the files, because the decrypted SM is so similar to the Wii one (so probably not rewritten from scratch) and its unlikely that they would just remove that section.

    I think that may be right.
    I just know for a fact, probably all of you do too, that Ninty changed many things on the vWii mode, maybe the Wii Message Board works differently than the Wii.
    I remember once using WiiXplorer on Wii U, when making the source be the NAND Chip, it looks different and encrypted unlike the Wii. Most of you probably know this, and I bet it would mess up the Wii U, so I wouldn't mess around with that on the Wii U.

    Well, the NAND chip is also encrypted on the Wii. ISFS functions take care of encrypting/decrypting the info automatically, depending on the type of operation.

    I, for one, am still planning to get a Wii U, eventually.
