NinjaMod was a rip off of the original tmbinc IPL replacement. It was poorly manufactured and known to have a high failure rate.
It used GCOS 1.4 with a modified background image and modified menu layout - which was later expanded on by paying a developer to add in ISO9660 browsing support to keep up with other IPL replacement features of the time. No source was released even though the NinjaMod was sold with GPL code flashed on it.

Feature List:
* Direct No-Swap Boot of All Media
* Support for all regions (PAL, USA and Japan).
* 16Mbit flash memory for application storage.
* DVD +-R Compatible
* Create Backups to PC via network connection (Requires BBA adapter)
* Boot Homebrew via network connection (Requires BBA adapter)
* Supports BIOS Update via DVD or via network connection (Requires BBA adapter)
* Only 7 wires to solder
* Includes 2 different BIOS Banks ( Bank 1 = Ninja Shell, Bank 2 = User Programmable )
* Based on tmbinc's IPL replacement with modified GCOS as base (no GPL code released, shame on them... )
