Backup / replace setting.txt

This application is based on the original System Settings Replace Tool made by Tona in 2008. It's main purpose is to backup and/or restore the setting.txt file, which contains console-specific information, like the serial number or the game region. When this file isn't present on the NAND (due to an accidental uninstallation of the System Menu) or it's corrupted, it is very likely that the console will not boot at all. However, if the user can access to Priiloader or BootMii, there is high chance that the System Menu can be reinstalled using an application compatible with GCN controllers (like WiiMod); but in order to re-enable the WiiMote connection, it'll be needed to restore a correct setting.txt. In other words, the SSRT aims to help in the brick recovery process by allowing the user to keep a valid backup of the setting.txt from his/her Wii.
