Ok, if anyone wants it, here it is. Sdload iso that is able to boot from slot B(hold A button during boot).

Didn't add the banner but it doesn't matter.

I checked it, it's working.

Hi i flashed this to my Qoob Pro and when i launch it, holding down A for slot B, it doesn't show anything except some weird jumbled symbol, and i cant do anything. Anyone know how to fix this problem?

Has your GameCube successfully read a SD card via SDGecko before? (non SDHC).

Many times, at least through Swiss

Edit: upon reformatting the SD card to FAT instead of FAT 32 i am now able to boot DOL files from SDLoad that is flashed to my Qoob Pro

Yes, SDLoad doesn't support FAT32.

I was looking for something else and found this useful post from Samsom with a python scrypt that converts sdload.bin into a dol file.
http://devkitpro.org/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=2120

I thought it might be useful to someone, so I attached a zip file that contains the .py script and the dol file (compressed and uncompressed). Would be great to have a slot B version even though it only supports FAT16. Not that I complain about the two slots hack, but I personally would use a slotB only version (or a slot A&B that defaults to slot B and goest to slot A if A button is held).

SDLoad Slot B hack!

Post by suloku » Sun Aug 23, 2015 1:53 pm

I've gotten my hands on a pretty old file featuring the Slot B hack! Thanks to Romcol, who still has it on his hard drive!
The file contains several cobra 2.1 firmwares as well as the standalone dol file, perfect for the new Home Bros. exploit (if you don't mind sdhc and the sd card size, that is).
Some days ago I spent much time searching for this, reaching the point of even doubting the existence of a slot B version, since I couldn't find this online anywhere, so now gc-forever might be the only site on the net with this file.

ps: I'm posting instead of editing because I thought that anyone interested wouldn't notice if I only edited my previous post.

The Slot B SDLoad was a very crappy find/replace I did in 2007.

Well maybe, but for homebros exploit comes in really handy, since takes only 6 blocks and sdgecko should be in slot B, while with the AR method one has to swap it after booting if you want a memory card in slot A, making the new exploit more straightforward.
