    Does this work for NAND installed games?

    For that you'll want to extract your tickets and then use something to download the encrypted files from NUS

    I am having trouble backing up my games onto a usb drive. I was only able to dump it on SD card.

    Since I am using linux (Arch Linux with Gnome), I tried making a Fat32 partition with Disks (Gnome App) and Gparted, but the wiiu program could not recognize it. I was trying to use a Samsung 250gb SSD I had laying around. Is there a proper way of making the FAT32 partition on Linux for the application?

    If you don't have success this time, copy the full text from the command window where you joined and then ran discu. If you don't join the file properly, you won't get the correct hash for the wud.

    So since I did write a dumper, I now also decided to write a fitting converter to .app files for it - called wud2app. While it may do pretty much the same as DiscU I wanted to write it myself to see how it all works and to have it open-source for anyone to read.
    Also to make it easy to use I've updated wudump to v1.3 with only this change:
    -added dumping of common key to make it easier to use with wud2app

    In addition to Fix94's wud2app source, there's also the source to VGMToolbox's extractor. Not exactly documentation, but a good start.

    Thanks for the new app. Being that you create the files in parts, a nice enhancement would be to read those parts without them having to be joined. I have a feeling that people are joining the parts just so they can extract the .app files.

    Just came to say thanks @FIX94 !!! The other day i had a bit of problems with discU, but my dump of bo2 works fine and better than playing with the disc!

    Thank you for this app and thank you so much for all of your hard work!

    This program has been working great for me, but an issue just popped up that I'm not sure how to solve (and may not be related to wudump). I just updated haxchi and wudump, and now after a disc dump completes and auto-exits, my Wii U gets stuck at starting the home menu and eventually the game pad screen goes white. Holding the power button on the console lets me turn it off then on again, but it was working fine before I updated everything. Anyone have any ideas?

    This is a problem a small amount of people seem to have with my recent apps which do the IOSU exploit and then install something, personally it never happend to me so I really cant tell you why it happens or what to do about it.

    This is magnificent! Thanks, FIX94! I am finally able to dump my retail copy of 007 Legends and install it on USB. It is really annoying to keep putting the disc everytime I want to play it. I am so used to digital titles now. Thank you again!

    Once I get to the point where it asks to insert a disc to start, is there anything else I need to do after the disc is inserted?

    If I try to dump to fat32 usb and then insert the disc, nothing seems to happen, no progress indicator, nothing.

    Am I missing something here, or do you suspect a fault with my 32GB usb flash drive (fat32 formatted with 64K clusters)?

    Thanks in advance for any help.
