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?)

Wow man, this could be the silver bullet to fill the WASP Fusion gap. I personaly hate that citrus3000s ODE removes optical drive functionality. Do you think it could be made to boot using sd2sp2 into Swiss using an auto boot function?

It is made to boot from an SD card (SD Gecko at least), so if it can't already support SD2SP2, it will probably in a near future.

In fact, I think I have read that it can, but since I can't find where I read that from, I can't take it for sure.

Zelda WW with Tingle Tuner in split screen was what the GC RF modulator was made for! (Video)

Anyone know how to get a hold of mega at badass consoles? I placed an order a couple of weeks ago for the hyperboot but didn't get any reply to my emails yet.

Free bump! Seems like an excellent option if updated to work with sd2sp2.

I had a email from him the other day. Firmware 1.1 supports SD2SP2. There's also a version 2 of the chip that has some extra storage space for dol storage. I haven't played with it or know much about it though.

Thats awesome! Cant wait until its available! I have a few soldering projects I hope to accomplish soon. My k7000 chassis needs caps and flyback transformer. I need to inspect an rca port on a trinitron I have as well.
