    haha the title made me laugh;
    anyways you could use waninkoko's WAD creator although that's pretty dated or you could use ShowMiiWads and take a NAND backup from BootMii. All you'd have to do is open up the NAND and pack the WAD.

    I agree, a bootmii nand backup and the showmiinand program is the way to go.

    I also agree that the title is funny.

    You can use Bluedump homebrew directly on your wii.

    There are two versions:
    - Real sign: use your Wii's key to sign the created .wad file.
    - Fake sign: use the Trucha bug to sign the created .wad file.

    Thanks for saying that, good thing that someone other than me knows what Bluedump is (unless they read Wiibricker's "Best cIOS seclection for newbies")

    Has anyone actually used the "Real sign" mode? Because I can guarantee that you won't be able to reinstall the .wad if it isn't fakesigned.

    If he's reinstalling to his own console wouldn't it accept it?

    No, tickets for console-specific titles are modified while being installed to the NAND meaning they can't simply be copied off and reinstalled.
