People who can't install python dependencies shouldn't use betwiin at all before learning more. This kind of app is just begging for trouble --- and bricks ... Magu 23:07, 30 April 2010 (UTC)


Hello! I have a 'broken' Wii (hardware issues, I think the NAND is corrupted somewhere), and a virgin system menu 3.3 from another Wii. Yes, same boot1 and boot2 is v2 on both of them.

Anyway, I was just curiously going to try to use this (don't have a python interpreter for straight betwiin) to put that virgin 3.3 on my 'broken' Wii to at least see if I could get it to run something besides the system menu. I was error'd right off the bat with the following:

 Creating empty output image:
 Copying boot1 / boot2
 Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "C:/Users/Owner/Desktop/NAND/Simple Nand Converter/betwiin/betwiin/py", In line 46 in <module>
     input_nand = NANDFormatSpare("input/flash.bin")
   File "C:\Users\NAME OMITTED\Documents\Downloads\Betwiin-1.0\betwiin\", line 240, in __init__
     raise ValueError("File size not divisible by 2112")
 ValueError: File size not divisible by 2112

Now, in response to what Magu said, I was under the impression that this came with all the Python stuff ready to go out of the box, so I don't have a python interpreter installed on this machine. But what stuck out at me was that path with the 'Name Omitted' line...

So just wondering if the problem is on my end, or the program's end.

Here's a link to a screencap of the output:

Since the terminal closed right after failure, I had to printscreen a few times with cat-like reflexes to catch it. That's why paint is open behind it and it's all transparent

Thanks! (And sorry for editing this page 5 times in the last 5 minutes, couldn't figure out how to draw that box properly) Poohead900
