    Since this was not done before I just decided to go ahead and do it because why not.
    https://github.com/FIX94/wudump/releases
    Please note that you have to be on 5.5.1/5.5.2 for this to work.
    Download and run the .elf from homebrew launcher with a fat32 sd card/usb device inserted that has at least 23.3gb free.
    The files will be dumped in 2gb parts, you will have to merge them yourself afterwards if you need the full game.wud.
    A full dump can take a little over one and a half hours.
    After it has been dumped the wud parts, common.key and game.key will be in a "wudump" folder on your sd card/usb device, to get the full game.wud you will have to merge them.
    If you are on windows you can use something like this for example to merge them into a game.wud on a "wudump" folder on your C drive from a cmd in the sd/usb folder:
    Code:
    copy /b game_part1.wud + game_part2.wud + game_part3.wud + game_part4.wud + game_part5.wud + game_part6.wud + game_part7.wud + game_part8.wud + game_part9.wud + game_part10.wud + game_part11.wud + game_part12.wud C:\wudump\game.wud
    
    If you would just like to install your game using wupinstaller then grab wud2app:
    https://github.com/FIX94/wud2app/releases
    If you dont want to merge all .wud files you can put wud2app into a folder on your pc and run it from a cmd with the wudump folder path as argument, for example if the sd/usb folder happens to be in "P:\wudump\WUP-P-TEST" on windows you can just run wud2app like:
    Code:
    wud2app "P:\wudump\WUP-P-TEST"
    If you do have all .wud files merged then put wud2app into the folder of the merged .wud and run it like run it like:
    Code:
    wud2app common.key game.key game.wud
    Make sure to copy the common.key and game.key into that folder as well if you use that method.
    The folder it creates can just be installed by wupinstaller.
    While it is quite basic it gets the job done I guess, all I really wanted to do anyways :P

    Let me get this straight, before this tool, we had no way to generate wud right? This would do it?

    well I also just rebranded it to just "wudump" and added an option to also dump to a fat32 usb device plugged in, you can choose that before dumping to where you want to have it.

    Wait, FAT32 support over USB has been figured out? Loadiine GX2 USB support hype!

    Just kidding, but that would be cool to see.

    yea, this project uses libiosuhax and libfat so its no big deal to mount sd or usb partitions.
