This program is a quick'n'dirty port of the famous "WiiScrubber" Windows
application to UNIX. Contrary to the Windows version, this one is command-line
only, and only has less features, but it will improve, eventually reaching the
same number of features of the Windows version.
The exact purpose of this program is, quoting the original one, to find out
where in the disc image the data is and change the rest of the data to 0xFF.
This allows compression programs to then compress the image and get a size
much smaller than without using the program.
This program has not been tested thoroughly, so I cannot guarantee proper
functionality. I've tried on quite a few files, checking the files that are
then extracted and all seems correct. But no 100% guarantees can be made that
the cleaned ISO will work. There is always the potential that Nintendo will
start checking for these sort of changes in a firmware update. Just be aware.
The WiiScrubber version this program is based on is 1.31 FINAL FINAL, hence the
"unusual" version this program has. The supported operating systems, at the
moment, are GNU/Linux and MacOS X.
This port has been possible as Dack, the original author of WiiScrubber, has
released the sources to his program.
