    How do we tell the difference between official VC titles and injected VC title dumps?

    Look for them on WiiUBrew.org Title Database or the Nintendo eShop. Otherwise, you can see if there is a Game ID inconsistency in the RPX or ROM itself.

    In NES/SNES, the RPX will be named after the Game ID of the game.
    In N64 and NDS, you can open the ROM file in a hex editor (located at \content\rom\ for N64 or \content\0010\rom.zip\ for NDS) and the Game ID will be in the header.
    These Game ID's can be looked up on the Title Database to see if they legitimately exist.

    (I'm not sure about GBA - @ajd4096 is your guy there, but I also need to know how to find the Game ID of GBA :P)

    For GBA, the quick-n-dirty:
    Start it and look at the manual.

    You can check by extracting the rom and comparing the rom's ID with the alldata filename.
    inject_gba -v --inpsb=/path/to/your/alldata.psb.m --outrom=extracted.gba
    xxd -s 0xAC -l 6 extracted.gba

    Which will print something like this:
    $ inject_gba -v --inpsb content/alldata.psb.m --outrom extracted.gba
    Reading 'content/alldata.psb.m'
    Reading file content/alldata.bin
    Writing 'extracted.gba'
    Extracting 'system/roms/AAFFE0.128.m'
    ^^ This shows the original name, I don't patch that when injecting.

    $ xxd -s 0xAC -l 6 extracted.gba
    000000ac: 4146 4645 3038 AFFE08
    ^^ This shows what the rom is. If it was injected, it will almost certainly differ.
