    Hey, remember back in the good ol' days when we had to patch Wii ISO's to get them to boot on the backup launcher made by Waninkoko? Well, Dolphin wont boot my patched ISO's, and i don't want to download them again... Is there any way to un-patch them so Dolphin wont tell me its corrupted =P

    Thanks~ [​IMG]

    It is not so much patching but unscrambling/decrypting the main .dol file from what I recall.

    True encryption would require nintendo's keys but you could probably pull something off with one of the various signing apps. Naturally this would require a wii/emulator able to read fakesigned stuff (I doubt the emulator will flag that).
    Option 2 (and I am not sure it exists) is alt dol but I doubt the emulator supports such a thing.

    Personally: scrubbed isos are not hard to find and most of the games from around that time were not that big. Granted you probably have some nasty download limits but as an end of the month job it should be OK.

    There is an undecrypter type thing out there. I saw it in a thread here a while back. I don't remember what it was called or who made it but such a program does exist.
