Just do not use outdated SWISS releases, always keep up to date so you'll get the better from it. :roll:
775-1 was the latest release at the time I received the board and burnt the disk :?

Pin assignment is quite straightforward:
SP-SD
VCC-VCC
GND-GND
CS-CS
CLK-CLK
MOSI-MOSI
MISO-MISO

Beware, if MISO and MOSI are labelled DI/DO, you'll have to cross the wires so that it will be:
DO-DI
DI-DO
I will check that, maybe my mate rerouted some traces (but I doubt so).

Hi there,

excuse me my shabby english, it is not my mother language. ;)

I own a Gamecube with a qoob pro. As bios i use iplboot to boot directly from the sd-gecko in slot B. In the next weeks i will receive all parts for a sd2sp2 and i want to replace the sd-gecko with it. As i read in some threads, iplboot was not able to boot a dol from sd2sdp2. But PapyrusWithCheesy added some code, with which iplboot should be able to boot from sd2sp2, as found here:

https://github.com/redolution/iplboot/c ... 124c9a2e71

A few sites previously in this thread i read, that this ended in a green streaked screen.
Is this particular error now fixed? I would be very concerned, if it is possible to replace the sd-gecko completly with the sd2sp2.

Thank you!

The site says all, it supposedly just need to be recompiled with devkitPPC r26, everybody is stuck now for the chips with lesser memory, the confirmed working IPLboot is as big as 15 blocks at the moment, 10 blocks compressed, but it hasn't been confirmed working on any chip, one block is 8KB, see for yours.

Totally replacing the SDGecko is not a real good idea anyway, as many utilities are not ready for the SD2SP2, some emulators hadn't been maintained for a long time, for example.
DMG/MF OC, AGB/SC miniSD, NTR/NeoMK3, USG/flashme V8/SC miniSD
DOL001(EUR)/RGB/GCPlug/GBP/SD2SP2, RVL 001(EUR)/RGB/CMP/WiiSD

Thank you for your replay!

I am not sure, if i understand you correctly. Is there a working version for chips with larger memory as the qoob pro (2MB)? And do the problem only exists for chips with lesser memory like the SX (128kb)?
Or is there no compiled version at all at this time and i have to wait a bit longer until someone could compile the code?

I don't use any other applicatione (like emulators etc.) than swiss. Swiss for me is only for outputting 480p and play some backups from the sd card.

Hi guys.

I really hope someone post here the compressed dol/vgc files (< 128 kb) of the latest revision of iplboot (with SD2SP2 support) for using with the Viper GC (not Extreme).

Thank you.
