Got the unit yesterday, working great!
Here are some pics of how to install it in the original gd-rom shell so it can be used safely without stressing the motherboard connector.
The usb-gdrom board has the exact same dimensions as the stock pcb so you can just replace it. The only modification needed is the removal of a small part at the bottom shield so the usb port pins in the back don't touch it:

I also found that ReDump GDI rips don't work, you need to use TOSEC/DUMPCAST ones... so beware and save yourself time/bandwidth ;)

@emu_kidid: Do you think it's possible to make a custom bios for the Gamecube like these guys made with the Dreamcast? Then maybe boot games via SD Gecko without a drive replacement? Or maybe boots Swiss instead of the original IPL. I don't know how complex it is nor which chip could handle it, but it sounds good, uh? :D

Man, if you fellows can figure out how to do something similar to an original XBOX TSOP flash mod, that would be awesome.

Eagerly awaiting more details . . . !

You guys are such teases, and then a few months later you somehow manage to deliver.
Can'(t) wait.

Gonna be a bit longer than a few months
>>> Yes the project works <<<

But still a lot more work to be done across multiple projects to allow for everything planned...
I'm sure details will be provided sometime within the coming months...
