Tmbinc's modchip ideal for swiss

Post by Dragoon » Fri Apr 01, 2011 7:56 pm

I guess this is the first time you hear about this chip,
but it's one of the cheapest ones you can get (actualy make :p) and it's open source,
wich means that we can easily modify it to our will :D
You probably know the Ninja Mod, that's actualy tmbinc's chip but then with different specs and bios.

Some technical stuff and specs:
- 4MB flash (means we can flash it with swiss)
- 7 wires install
- Flashable via Serial, Parallel (only for MC I think), and BBA (tmbinc's IPL replacement)
- AR memory card needed to write the bootloader to (to boot the chip)(I think any other Datel MC works so you don't to invest in a old AR of $70,- +)
- *Not sure* Needs the keystream *1 to work

What we can do:
- Work away the need for a memory card
- Any other stuff I can't think of now :p

Note *1:
The keystream is the XOR encryption key needed to encrypt en decrypt the BIOS. (I don't have it, because I don't understand the math in YAGCD *2 chapter X)
Note *2:
YAGCD is Yet Another Gamecube Documentation.

Any one knows how to use Eagle? And has these chips in his/her version?
I can get them produed @ my local electronics store :D
But first, we need to work away the need of a memory card.

Emu_kidid told me he can get them produced for $20,- :D And I think that's cheaper than I would have them.
