    yeah, I know but I want to be specific, exchange the game .rom file with one I want to inject. I am not aware if WADder can do this.

    found a source of qwad on the net but how do I compile it with phyton?

    This is gettin harder...

    Edit:
    the following is in the qwad folder:

    GUI
    i18n
    icons
    CHANGELOG.txt
    Qwad_rc.py
    Qwad.pyw
    TitleIDs.py
    WiiPy

    Anyone knows what to do?

    I believe there is a mono version of ShowMiiWads.

    Also, it may be possible to compile some of the libWiiSharp examples for mono, and there are some WAD related tools there. And more could be written with libWiiSharp and compiled.

    Finally, why use WADder when CustomizeMii works fine with mono AFAIK?

    Yeah,

    I have mono installed and Customizemii runs fine but when it comes to Showmiiwads(which actually can unpack and pack wads) it always telly me that the common-key.bin needs to be in the directory.

    The key is there, I tried with a DLed one, I let the program create one, I renamed it to key.bin let its name as it was generated by the program but always when I choose to extract to folder it tells me that it needs the key....
