New IPL replacement modchip: HyperBoot

Post by andzlay » Thu Nov 07, 2019 2:59 pm

Soo... apparently mega/badassconsoles secretly released a new IPL replacement modchip.
https://www.badassconsoles.com/hyperboot/
Features:

Directly Boot Homebrew from SD card
Supports SD, SDHC, SDXC
Compatible for all regions (PAL, USA and Japan)
Bypass mode to jump into original system menu
Built-in update menu
Updates performed by the console itself (Eliminates the need for JTAG)
CLI Support for homebrew lacking a proper menu
USB Gecko support
btw: Is he not active on gc-forever anymore?

I'd love to buy a few, nice to have something from this decade compared to a Qoob Pro

When I saw it, there were two available. I ordered one and then posted 8-)

I'm pretty interested in getting one of these myself. The price of non-disc access to Swiss is great. I had been eyeing the new ODE from citrus, but those seem fairly out of stock as well.

Has anyone contacted megalomaniac about when more units might be available? (it's his site and storefront, right?)
