I find it strange iplboot fails with sd2sp2, it uses the same code for slot A, B and sd2sp2 devices. I can't recompile right now since I don't have clang on my windows setup.
I have tested IPLBoot a little more so:
Slot B: writes a lot of things in a black screen before launching SWISS
SP2: reboots immediately to GC's IPL
SP2 with empty SDGecko: writes three lines, wait a little, then reboots the console

Hope this will help, don't hesitate to ask if there is anything more I can do to help.

Nice to see that someone actually used my fork of the brosexec :D

It's not as if we have the choice, as long as this iplboot is not fully operationnal, and Ledu205's version is not small enough to fit on a chip. :roll:
If only you can compress the dol with dolxz just before converting it to GCI, it may be wayyy smaller, and I may use it again. Not that space is hard to find on my memcards, but I already tested the big version, and I'll only replace Ledu205's by something "new". :P

Hi friends,

Can the dev @suloku or anyone else add the same d2sp2 support to brosexecconf please?

I'd prefer to use it instead of brosexec.

Many thanks.

I have updated NiHuShu's fork of brosexec to add SD2SP2 support and also sue dolxz.exe which has better compression. Here are the binaries for brosexecconf.

Also, for some reason it seems I have permisions to NiHuShu's github fork (I commited accidentally, I wanted to just make a pull request), I hope he doesn't mind.

I've noticed that even building the original code for brosexec produces a bigger binary that the ones I uploaded in 2015. This is most likely due due to libraries being bigger so there's little we can do about that besides going to the very first compatible set of builds that can compile with sd2sp2 support in the hopes we can get a smaller file.

In fact, the iplboot project was discontinued as stated in it's github page: "Because the most recent devkitPPC builds generate huge code, I can no longer make iplboot fit in Qoob SX flash."

Also, I've recompressed brosexec with dolxz, which saves 1 block. I've also recompressed the original non-sd2sp2 versions of dolaunchers, which save some blocks for brosexec (2 blocks each). I'll be uploading to release page at github too.

BTW the brosexec conf builds are untested, but the code is the same NiHuShu added to brosexec, so it should work fine.

EDIT: also available here https://github.com/suloku/dolaunch/rele ... /0.2-dolxz

Good to see you around suloku, and yeah libOGC/dkPPC generates huge binaries these days :(
