Convert dol to gcb file?!

Post by _Nold_ » Mon Mar 19, 2012 6:22 pm

Hi,

to make it short: I want to build a custom GCOS for my Qoob Pro and i want to use it instead of the official bios.


So.. how do i build a .gcb file from GCOS source / convert it from gcos.dol?
Basicly the header is pretty easy (http://hitmen.c02.at/files/yagcd/yagcd/ ... ml#sec14.4), could copy it from compiled gcos but i have no idea in which format the "Data" has to be.

Thanks a lot!


/EDIT:
Just found this in gcos t3 readme:
If you're going to build this src for a IPL, change the CFLAG -DPSO to -DMOD. Also, to boot on a modchip, use
"makeipl.bat" after building with the CFLAG set to -DMOD. It will create GCOS.GCB, bootable on qoob and possibly
ninjamod. Also, if you build for Qoob, you must set ipl_set_configqoob(6); in main.c and comment out ipl_set_config(6);
which is for the older tmbinc/ninjamod/viper/ripper mods.
will take a look at that ^^

//edit2: Ok, dosn't seem to be current... makeipl.bat dosn't exist, even in T3..

_Nold_, GCOS was provided in .gcb format, look at a later release.

I have the tools somewhere but I think I'll need to re-post them with some decent instructions.

Yea, i know there is a build one but i need to use a custom one, just to try some things out.

Would be awesome if you could release that tool :)
