Re: New IPL replacement modchip: HyperBoot

I had a email from him the other day. Firmware 1.1 supports SD2SP2. There's also a version 2 of the chip that has some extra storage space for dol storage. I haven't played with it or know much about it though.

Re: IPLBoot on XenoGC

But a DIY build XenoGC with a bigger flash memory, would that work then?? It's source code is release so you could, but there's not much point as it's a drive chip so it probably can't boot anything unless there's a disc in the drive. You're better off developing a IPL replacement chip or just wait...

Re: GCVideo 3.0a for Chinese GCPlug ?

It's really clever, you can put the device into update mode from the OSD. Then you run the updater.dol - this homebrew actually encodes the new firmware into the video signal. The FPGA grabs the new code and updates the firmware. I think I recall some very early component to HDMI adapter dongles fo...

Sorry guys, I didnt knew about IPLboot, so this version can boot SWISS using just the new SDSP2 board?
No, you need IPL modchip like Qoob, Viper, Hyperboot (If it gets updated for SP2)

You need KNJN's TXDI programming board or a JTAG programmer. Take a look at KNJN's documentation and gcvideo's documentation.

I didn't mean to imply anyone is saying the design is bad. I just mean to say that I think the design choice is good and just voicing my opinion. Assembling two boards together isn't exactly hard, but I was thinking in terms of a design that is made for sale. Having two boards will require some hand...

Re: Hi, about Serial port 2 USB for Swiss, any chance?

The form factor doesn't suit me, neither the extenders, as you stated, so i'm gonna try to make a home-made one, to try at first, until an angled one is available (if I'm too slow to design one myself). I think it is a good design, but of course others will have different opinion. The microSD slot ...

Re: Codejunkies SD Media Launcher Issues

It's been mentioned a few times, but if you're looking for non-SDHC 4GB cards check the TOPRAM brand. You can find them in listings called "TOPRAM 4GB non-HC" or "TOPRAM 4GB non-SDHC". Doesn't really matter if you pick up any 2GB or smaller either and you can always swap to SDHC after booting into s...

It's definitely a case swap, the rear panel color is supposed to match the rest of the console.

But I don't recall seeing a platinum(silver) or indigo(purple) rear panel color on the DOL...

Re: what Cable stickning out?

That shielded FFC looks familiar to the ViperGC. Comparing pictures it looks like it's 14pins which fits the ViperGC/Extreme. This assumption is correct if it is running cobra. It's to be use in conjunction with a programmer to update the chip.

Qoob Pro and WKF looks like 12pin.
