    As now the injection of ROMs into VC games is possible, I wonder if is possible now or in the future to dump the .nes ROM of Earthbound Beginnings. This game hadn't got out officialy from Japan until Nintendo decided to released it only in the Wii U VC months ago

    Sure it's possible, but you have to be in 5.3.2 and have the VC already installed to be able to dump the files :)

    Are you able to dump all the VC files from it? I would like to get a look at it, if you want to :)

    If you want to walk me through it I'll be happy to help. I have used the web site wj44.bplaced to do the exploit that's about it really.

    Just do the kernel exploit then pyGecko, and then use the TCP Gecko application to dump the 0x10000000 area (10 in the dropdown checkbox). The ROM will be somewhere in there.

    Yes, you need to dump the memory in that area while in the app. You'll also need to look around for the ROM in the data using a hex editor, if you're not sure what it would look like, maybe try grabbing the Japanese Earthbound ROM for comparison and then search some bytes from it in the dump.

    EDIT: Or actually, I think you can dump the ROM file directly, there's a file browsing tab. Try that instead.

    When I go in to the FSA tab it said something about a wrong WII U OS? I am dumping memory address 10... 70% and the console froze....

    Off topic question where would be the best place to see offsets change when memory fewer is set on auto? Also best address place to look for game offsets? For some reason all my searches have failed...

    What error? If it is at connection, ignore it and click continue.

    FSA read works though.
