PokéLoad - A Colosseum/XD Exploit

Post by FIX94 » Thu Feb 25, 2016 5:56 pm

I just finished up the work of the original POC exploit by TuxSH:
http://www.gc-forever.com/forums/viewto ... =38&t=3131

Grab yourself the current release and install it with a softmodded Wii and GCMM.
The exploit loads a boot.dol installed on your memory card converted with dol2gci (as found in Home Bros) so make sure to also install one with GCMM, it will just crash otherwise.

If you are interested in the source its included on the github page.

See it in action right here loading Swiss:

Forgive me if this is off-topic or unwarranted, but I just wanted to thank you for creating this and allowing myself and many others to use the Home Bros. exploit without needing to shelve out 60+$ for a used inflated copy of Melee.

I also wanted to ask: Are the included GCI files all required, or are they simply different regions?

They are for the different games and regions. E = NTSC-U, P = PAL, J = NTSC-J, check your disc to be sure which version to use if you're unsure.

Both trainers send out Sunkern...coincidence? I think not!

It was a Swiss.dol and I know why it wasn't working, I couldn't get IT to convert in cmd so i used a bat command someone made and it was supposed to show "boot.dol" as the comments, instead it showed the directory to where my file was. But sadly I still can't figure out a way to convert it and I don't have anything else to use other than this game and I don't want to buy anything other than an sd gecko

oh well then, just converted the current nightly swiss_r342-compressed.dol to a gci which should work just fine.

You need a way to run homebrew like Swiss or GCMM to copy the save file to your memory card. Also grab boot.gci from Swiss or GBI depending on what you want to do and copy it to the card. You can use a softmodded Wii for this.
These are the video links:

I'm having issues running the Colosseum version on aJapanese GameCube (actually a North American GameCube that I region converted since that's an easy job even for a soldering noob like myself). After triggering the exploit, the screen goes black then my TV says "No Signal". It's like it's trying to load the boot.dol (Swiss in this case) in PAL mode. I still have a XenoGC Cube that I can use for homebrew, but I figured I'd test this exploit since Colosseum is the only Japanese GameCube game I have with one.
Setup:

North American GameCube with XenoGC, OEM Memory Card 1019, Game Boy Player, and SDGecko with SanDisk Ultra 32GB SD Card

To rule out that, try loading something else like GBI.dol?

I tried GBI.dol as well. Same result. I should also mention that the memory card is formatted for Japanese games and I loaded both the exploit and the boot.dols I tried using GCMM on the XenoGC Cube, since that might affect things.
Setup:

North American GameCube with XenoGC, OEM Memory Card 1019, Game Boy Player, and SDGecko with SanDisk Ultra 32GB SD Card
