    That does look useful. If it works on the "unhackable" wiis, someone needs to extract IOS3 right away.

    As far as I understand: being able to extract everything on your wii (channels, VC, IOS's etc.) as a WAD, then being able to share them with others or store them?

    firstly it is WII based, not PC based like other wad packer

    secondly it can pack an INDIVIDUAL title, no need to dump whole file system

    Ooh this in conjunction with a wad installer might just be the ticket to the one incredibly minor gripe people have with 3.2 now the 4.0 copy thing is out ("but I have paid for vc/wiiware and dumping is too complex").
    Thanks for the heads up.
    Oh and mirror for those not liking mediafire (ok it is only 4shared but it should be nicer):

    So we can't achieve anything new with this, it just makes dumping Wads easier right?

    It doesn´t work for me.
    I dumped the "Metroid Prime 3 Preview Channel" and deleted it, but when I want to install the dumped wad I get a "ret = -1022"

    Tested it and works fine.

    Also now i can easily make IOS Wads.
    But i got a few questions:

    First i got a random Title:

    Name: Unknown Name
    (Downloadable Content)
    Title ID: 00010001-4E415250
    Version: 0
    Size: 41.17MB

    When i want dump that i get an error ret -106.

    Thats strange.
    This thing is Majoras Mask (PAL).
    But i dont have it on my Wii -> i copied to my SD Card.

    I think its because the Title (.tmd) is still present in Nand.



    Another i dont know:
    Name: BC
    ID: 00000001-00000100
    Version: 5
    Size: 0.02 MB

    Dump works

    Someone knows what that is?



    Also dumping cIOS (249 and 250) makes an error (-1017).
    But the Wad will be on the SD Card!
    Checked it but it seems the Wad isnt okay (Wii Wad Data Info).



    Another strange Channel:
    Region Select

    What is that? :wtf:


    Also the foto channel and news channel are 2 times on my wii.
    But on my Wii Menu is just 1.
    Can i uninstall the old Version?

    Ah and i noticed a Channel called EULA. Can i uninstall that too?



    This is an awesome tool.
    Thanks for help.
