Sorry that was long, I tried to put it in a spoiler box, but in the preview at least the spoiler won't expand. Not sure why.
Spoilers have been broken for a while and I haven't been able to catch emu_kidid's attention on the matter.

You're supposed to write the recovery image to the card using a tool like dd or win32diskimager.

Re: Yet another USB Gecko clone

I haven't tried HBC as I don't even have a Wii, but that shouldn't be the problem. You could give Swiss a try, it will output debugging information over slot B (must be enabled first). If the FTDI shows up on USB then it's working. Flashing it only changes some information in the descriptor that isn...

The FIFO will get stuck if there is no software on the GC trying to read it. What are you testing with?

Re: Region Mod using the Reset Switch

Nice trick! Alternatively, you can use Swiss which will detect the region of the game and force the correct mode.

Re: Updating from GCOS 1.X to Cobra 2.1

Even if you could boot Cobra, the Viper itself will be disabled because of the flags in the flash header. This holds true for iplboot, but I'm not entirely sure about GCOS. If it doesn't disable the Viper, then it's possible to write our own flasher.

Re: Help to run burned games on my GameCube modded with Xeno

Interesting contraption. Yes, you can cut regular 12cm DVDs down to size, just make sure you cut them round and concentric or you could damage your spindle. You could also find an aftermarket top case that fits full size discs.

Re: Has anyone tried using a Wii Mini DVD Drive in a GameCube?

As long as it still has regular DVD support then Swiss can patch games to read burned media kind of like those inline Wii modchips did. The wasp probably even does that out of the box with "wkf on". Original discs should work in a GameCube out of the box if it's like the Wii family edition where it'...

Re: Help to run burned games on my GameCube modded with Xeno

The burner itself also matters. If he's using the same media as you are, then you might want to try using the same burner as his.

Re: Game Boy Interface

You can append the CLI to the DOL file with the following command (on Windows):

Code: Select all

copy /b gbi.dol+gbi.cli boot.dol
Then you can convert that into a GCI with dol2gci and install it.
CLI options are documented on the wiki.

Re: Custom QSB for Wasp/WKF with DVD drive

Knowledge about the WODE is a lot more scarce than WKF/WASP because it's much more expensive and hasn't been available for a while. For the lid, you just need to connect a switch between the two pads on the adapter board. You need pin 29 according to the wiring information in the wiki.

You can order the PCBs from oshpark, you will need to source the connectors and a voltage regulator separately.

By adapter board, do you mean those adapters that you plug a ribbon/FFC cable into and it has solder pads for all 32 pins?

Re: What to do with a new GameCube

For option 2: booting Swiss from a disc is much easier than getting backup discs to work reliably. The stutters aren't too bad even in Metroid. You will notice increased load times though, and you may run into breaking bugs with some games. For option 4: the wode is a good compromise between the com...

Re: Viper GC

At this point it's safe to assume that the chip has a problem. Since you said you could return it, you should probably do that and look for another one.
