    I have a wii with 4.2, homebrew channel, wad manager, and the ability to use wad manager to install a WAD to a channel, and then copy that to be run off of an SD card. Rather than do it that way, is there a way to say, convert a WAD to a content.bin (of course, that will be in the directory x:\private\wii\title\gamecode\content.bin type structure) and just copy that to the SD card?

    it would save a lot a time and eliminate the need for WAD manager.

    thanks

    There's more to it than just having the data. Installing the wad also installs the tickets for the app so that the Wii and SD menu know to look for it. Installing the wad is a necessary step (it's not like it takes that long anyway).
