Hi. I have a few questions:

1) Is it possible to use Viper GC (not Extreme) without the Gamecube optical drive (using iplboot as a replacement BIOS on the Viper GC)?

2) If yes, is the instalation of the modchip on Gamecube the same (4 wires to solder and a solder bridge)?

3) What about the two connectors of the lid sensor switch on Viper GC modchip? Just leave them disconnected or do I need to bridge it to simulate the lid always closed?

4) Does the latest revision of iplboot (which boots from SD2SP2) support SDHD/SDXC or just SDSC (2GB or less)?


Thank you.

All homebrew released since 2009 support SDHC/XC. Additionally, iplboot is one of the few things that support exFAT.
