    Been searching for a while but can't seem to find this. How do I save my original Wii theme? I've extracted the 00000072.app (for 4.0U Wii) file from my NAND dump so how do I convert this to a .csm file to use with Mymenuify? It’s sorta the “chicken before the egg” dilema. Mymenu needs the .app file along with a .mym file to make a .csm file. Help? Thanks.

    I think you need the Softmii theme converter for that
    Not sure if its the only app that does this though

    no mymenuify can install the app file as is
    theres no need to make it in to a csm

    just put the app file on your sd card and select it in mymenuify like you would a csm file

    The softmii theme thingy only converts .csm to .mym :/

    Would I need to rename my 00000072.app file to do this?

    Softmii theme converter looks for modified ash files in a app or csm file
    then makes a mym of what was edited

    i don't think it will work with a unmodified app file

    I need the mym file from the original wii theme 'cause i'd like to edit it, how can i extract it from the app file? The only mym i have is from the blackwii theme.

    My wii is 4.1U in case that someone find a download link.
