    It appears as if this isn't possible yet but I would like to dump Wii U game disks. Not only is it illegal to download them online but not every game has a scene release so if there is none you're screwed and can't easily access the files especially when TCP Gecko.NET's FSA is not working correctly :P

    I need to finish FSA sometime, keeps holding me back too. You can try working around it by using Cafiine 1.2 with the -request/-request_slow files, but that doesn't catch everything, just what's needed to get started.

    Also it's good for games like Mario Party 10. Dump all the rpl files from that games it's a mess, also, the rpl+rpx size it's over 100MB.
    As you may know, Dumpiine just dumps properly the first 20MB
    I needed to enter a map, then exit, dump, re-start wiiu, reload exploit, enter other map, dump, re-start, and so...
    4 hours and still missing some rpl files.

    How scene releases are dumped?

    I don't know how true it is but I read somewhere might been on GBATemp that they use PS3s to dump files. My personal guess is Linux and dump them raw somehow.

    Thanks to Maschell I managed to dump the entire content folder. The trick was to use Saviine by replacing the folder being dumped with the content one:
    Code:
    /vol/content
    Maschell also said that he will make another tool for dumping everything required for use with Loadiine however his University work is keeping him from spending more time for the Wii U scene. Coming soon™, be patient. In fact, I could also work on this but I have the same problem as him :grog:

    Here are the "modified" Saviine files that can dump the content folder:

    So it's as easy as rebuilding it with /vol/content/, /vol/code/, and /vol/meta/ ?

    I guess but there was something else he had to fix I believe so see for yourself. I just now added the compiled files to my post

    You also have to change a function in server. In the normal version only /vol/save folders are allowed and handled.
    Here my really crappy solution from yesterday http://pastebin.com/Bjmrc9D2
    (I think you just can remove line 11-20, but I haven't tested it.)

    The code and meta folder are not mapped to /vol/, so no (maybe with the iosu exploit we have direct access to the disc?)

    btw. you have to dump the "common" folder to dump the content with this version.
    Its only a crappy solution, like Bully said I will (try) to make a complete game dumper next month (try to figure out to dump the meta data and combining it some work of dimok and saviine)

    Has there already been a progress with a WiiU image dumper? I'd like to try Loadiine GX but I don't really want to download the images from the internet.

    You can only dump the "content" folder and grab the other files from updates
