    So "images" as in Wii U iso files? But now we still have the problem as to obtaining these files. Unless the ones on the warez sites are legit

    Ain't this kind of hard to do without being able to dump our own ISO images? How does that work?

    For now....thought we can't even dump the images ourselves, no thanks to the hackers, AKA, the Illuminati. Save for the ISO images dumped online...I mean....

    That's how crediar gets them, how I get them, and how anyone else can, too. They're legit. :lol:

    That is, until we actually can dump them on our own, which I highly doubt will happen, given how secretive Wii U hackers are.

    Short of an IOSU exploit, which probably no-one outside fail0verflow has yet, probably the only way to dump discs is with external hardware. Like the few prototype units the Wiikey team is said to have sent out to several people.

    Guess there really is no hope after all in the Wii U scene at this rate....

    Can't somebody just add WiiU disc-ripping to the Wii app, CleanRip 2.0? Seems feasible, if anyone's willing to try...

    Plug the Wii U's drive into your computer with a custom SATA cable (you need to make this yourself), then you can dump Wii U disk.

    doubt it they've been ripping wiiu images for ages now this is the 1st time we've actually seen one of the tools released that does it.

    What exactly do CDecrypt and DiscU do? Do these tools allow you to extract game files from ISOs?

    CDecrypt decrypts NUS (Nintendo Update Server) files, like DLC for games. DiscU decrypts disc images.

    DiscU log snippet...

    So could you use CDecrypt to download decrypted files from DLC or an eShop-only game? And can you extract the files (e.g. models) from the ISO/disc-image after decrypting it?

    CDecrypt doesn't download files. It only decrypts them. You have to use NUS Downloader somehow to download them. DiscU doesn't save a decrypted copy of the ISO. It only decrypts it in RAM while it runs and extracts the files from it.

    He's asking if he can download and extract the files for NSMBU, to which the answer is "yes". However, all links are dead so good luck actually finding a download.
