    You can use WAD Creator by Waninkoko to create WADs of your installed channels.

    i only have the nand dump, i don't have the console here anymore, so i was wondering if it was possible to extract wads from the dump instead of the live environment (the wii itself)

    Up to now, there's no nand.bin parser. So we are not yet able to extract the files of the dump. If we could, we could WAD Wiiware and VC games from the *.bin.

    decrypt the nand dump with your wiis keys, find all titles which belong to the wad you want to pack, pack the wad with your wiis keys.

    On the Wii we have files and directories (in a way). The nand.bin is just a dump and contains all those files and dir's in one file.
    Getting clearer now?

    also a bitstream image of an HD is a single file, but if you mount it you can read the content, you need to know the filesystem strucutre.
    if it's known i don't see any problem in "mounting" the bin to access the filesystem in a logical manner.

    Waninkoko's Dumper dumps all the folders. So you get something like this:

    Code:
    SD:/
    |- WII_FS
    ÂÂÂÂ |- IMPORT
    ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ|- ...
    ÂÂÂÂ |- META
    ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ|- ...
    ÂÂÂÂ |- SHARED1
    ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ|- ...
    ÂÂÂÂ |- SHARED2
    ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ|- EC
    ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ|- MENU
    ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ|- SUCCESSI
    ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ|- SYS
    ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ|- TEST
    ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ|- TEST2
    ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ|- ...
    ÂÂÂÂ |- SYS
    ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ|- ...
    ÂÂÂÂ |- TICKET
    ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ|- ...
    ÂÂÂÂ |- TITLE
    ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ|- ...
    ÂÂÂÂ |- TMP
    ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ|- ...
    So those files aren't encrypted.

    has anyone tried to use the NAND dumped from their wii with dolphin emulator?

    i take it that the emulator doesnt actually need a NAND so it wont be able to use one. but my thought was:

    use the NAND from your wii with all the wiiware/ VC on dolphin.
    get homebrew on it, (if possible(in fact, this would be a FAR safer test environment for apps!))
    use wad creator to extract the wads of the games you want

    but of course, since i have no idea how dolphin works, i have no idea what i'm talking about [​IMG]
