    If I use WiiScrubber and extract the wad files from the Update partition of a disc, and then copy them to SD card and install them with WADInstaller, would that have the exact same results as if the DVD installed the updates itself? I just wonder because there's more to the update partition than just wad files, there are .bin files and also a main.dol. Would the wad files need to be installed in any certain order? Is there any logic on a disc's update program that only installs certain wads based on a specific criteria, or do these updates always install all the wads?

    My objective is to install updates from a backup disc, but I don't have a mod chip so I can't load the disc and from what I've been able to determine, Backup Launcher 0.3 gamma ignores the update partition entirely.
