    Even ONLY with the update part will be fine for me.
    Also, I need the dump to be WBFS format, since ISO is too large.
    THX!

    Cleanrip seems to be the best choice, it will split too large iso on fat drive and will keep update partition.

    Thanks, but even for such a small game like Wii Play(200MB of data)has to be dumped as a ISO...
    could cleanrip dump wbfs?

    No I simply dumps iso files, it would have to dump the iso then convert it to wbfs

    ???
    right, its iso only, full 4.37gb. Normally the update partition gets removed by all loader installers, so your only way to get out the update partition would be via cleanrip. Why do you want the update partition anyways btw? You can get all IOS and system menus via other means anyways.

    Why do you want WBFS ?
    If you want the update partition it's to get its content ? Use WiiScrubber on the iso :)
    Or tell us what is the purpose of what you're asking, we may find other solutions.

    Yes, I'm trying to get its contents...
    I want it to dump as WBFS for ISO is too time consuming...

    There are some wads that only come from disks, such as Download Assistant channels and IOS9-v516
