    The problem is that we can't dump the meta folder or tickets.

    How do the scene release groups dump the disc images and how do they extract the title key? Some private process? I remember hearing that the Wii U disc drive has a SATA interface but a non standard connector, so a connector or cable would need to be soldered. Then, a disc image is made with imaging software. I'm not sure how the key is extracted. Is any of this true? I can't find any public information about this.

    Yeah, the keys are extracted from the ticket files included in the disc.
    Scene release groups either have a private exploit or some sort of special hardware to dump the discs.

    But if the disc images are encrypted, how do they get the ticket files used to decrypt and extract the disc images?

    But if the disc contents are encrypted in the first place, how is the ticket file obtained?

    Yeah, that's a good question. They might really have an exploit that allows them to dump the ticket from the console's RAM.
