    Having never owned a modchip, I never really paid much attention to the development of tools for dumping Wii games. Now that I should be able to play backups using this "iso loader", I would like to know how to backup my own games.

    I recall there were several ways of doing this, and many of the tutorials that I came across were fairly old.

    So, what is the best way to backup my geniune wii games, so that I can then use them with this softmod? Can they be dumped to a USB drive? Or sent to a PC over Wi-fi?

    Waninkoko himself developed a dumper some time ago, you can find it on his site: http://wii.waninkoko.info
    It requires Waninkoko's custom IOS, which you need for the backup loader anyway.

    EDIT: This can be used to dump via SD, USB or Wi-Fi, if I remember correctly.
