The NinjaMod is a commercially produced IPL Replacement based on open source design by tmbinc for the Nintendo Gamecube.


The software BIOS which the Ninjamod was sold with was a copy of GCOS version 1.4 with a different backdrop and re-labelled "NinjaShell". Controversy arose when the open sourced GCOS v1.4 code was re-labelled and made closed source and sold as the modchip BIOS since this broke the GPL conventions.
