    cIOSX d2x

    [IMG]







    What is d2x?

    This is the 6th version of our modified cIOSX rev21.
    The modules EHCI, FAT, FFSP, ESP, DIP have been fixed to improve usb devices compatibility and nand emulation support, but they have been also extended to add some new cool features like IOS Reload block for DVD/USB/SD and fraglist support.
    The new cIOS, obtained by replacing the original modules with these ones, is known as cIOSX d2x where d2x stands for davebaol, xabby666, and XFlak.
    Davebaol and xabby666 are the authors of the 1st fix and also moderators of the HackWii community.
    XFlak is a famous member of the GBAtemp community and the creator of the fabulous ModMii which is, among other things, also the official d2x wad builder. He had the original idea of replacing the EHCI module from rev21 with the one from rev19 (the last version known not to have the controller lag) and the lag disappeared.

    We like to interpret d2x like a sort of chemical formula (like H2O) which is a nice metaphor where the 3 authors are the atoms that gave birth to this little project, the d2x molecule.
    Yeah we know that literally in chemistry d2x means D--X--D just like h2o means H--O--H, so it's not the same as the acronym dxx.
    But dudes, that's just a metaphor. So who cares. style_emoticons/default/happy.gif

    Since d2x v2 davebaol takes care of the cios, XFlak (how would I do without you? style_emoticons/default/smile.gif ) follows the install tools and xabby666 is vanished into thin air. style_emoticons/default/sad.gif
    However since d2x v5 new people are heavily contributing to d2x development, i.e. WiiPower and oggzee. style_emoticons/default/grog.gif Thanks guys, I'm glad to work with you!!!

    Changelog:
    WARNING! Spoilers inside!




    New features and improvements
    • IOS Reload Block: The Ultimate Solution

      With the IOS Reload Block feature and the new fraglist support games compatibility is now about 100%.
      It means you can now play through USB/SD all problematic games like CSI series, Call of Duty 3, Spliter Cell Double Agent and others that previously were not supported.
      Also, other less problematic games like Metroid Prime Trilogy are now fully playable without any restrictions.
      Finally alt.dol method is now useless and when resetting a game you'll get the expected behavior.
      Further information inside the spoiler.
      WARNING! Spoilers inside!
    • Return to Channel: The Universal method

      This feature is available since d2x v4beta4 and allows the user to return to a certain channel, instead of the system menu, when quitting a game.
      It's a clean solution and is compatible with all games out there, included problematic ones like Prince of Persia The Forgotten Sands.
      WARNING! Spoilers inside!
    • Nand emulation improvements

      VC/WiiWare NAND emulation compatibility has been improved a lot and now should be the same as rev17 or even better.
      To use multiple partitions support and emulated nand in any folder (not just the root) download Mighty Channels v11.1.
      Here is a short list of games that now work properly. Anyway I expect many others not working before now work too.
      WARNING! Spoilers inside!
    • Secondary usb port lag issue

      The secondary usb port lag issue, fixed by d2x v2, exists since rev19.
      You can easily replicate that issue through Rock Band 3 by following x4mer's instructions reported in the spoiler below:
      WARNING! Spoilers inside!
    • Controller lag issue

      The controller lag issue has been fixed by d2x v1 and it appeared the first time in cIOSX rev20 and it's still there in rev21, while it didn't exist in rev19.
      The problem occurs only with certain hard drives affected by slow spin up.
      For further details see the great thread by netspy about controller lag issue.
    How to install d2x cIOSs

    You can choose between 2 different methods to install d2x cIOSs.
    Both are valid and achieve the same results. Just choose the one you prefer.
    • Method 1: ModMii + Multi-Mod Manager

      This is the original method used to install d2x cIOSs since its birth.
      Personally it's my preferred one, but Windows is required.
      WARNING! Spoilers inside!
    WARNING! Spoilers inside!

    • Method 2: Homebrew Installer

      This is the official d2x cIOS Installer created by Dragbe and NutNut.and was made with the full support of the d2x team.
      This homebrew runs on the Wii and is an alternative to the ModMii method to install the d2x cIOSs.
      It's especially helpful for people without Windows and are therefore unable to run ModMii.
      Since v2.0 it can also install future beta versions of d2x cIOS by simply adding modules & ciosmaps.xml in the same folder of the boot.dol !
      WARNING! Spoilers inside!
    Integration instructions for developers

    This section is intended for developers who wants to integrate the new features provided by the cIOS d2x.
    • The "return to channel" feature

      WARNING! Spoilers inside!
    • The "IOS reload block" feature

      This feature was already available in the last versions of Waninkoko's cios.
      However in d2x v4beta3 the method 2 used to block ios reload has been fixed to bypass error 002.
      Also it has been improved to block ios reloading multiple times. Finally the method 2 has been extended to support any slot, not only 249.
      NOTES:
      • d2x v4: this feature is only relevant to disc loading!!!
      • d2x v5: USB/SD are now supported as long as the device is wbfs formatted.
      • d2x v6: native fraglist allows support for non wbfs partitions.
      WARNING! Spoilers inside!
    Download links
    • Newer d2x betas
      • Currently not available.

    Black Ops still has the lag, but it did with rev19 as well. I would suggest using hermes with base 57, such as a 224b57 works smooth as silk. Haven't tried MH3.

    Unfortunately, some hard drives do not support hermes cios, but this version of the cios waninkoko goes really well.
