    Yes, but the source code to Gecko 1.8 has not been released, and I don't think that brkirch is planning on releasing it.

    It's a program made for running LEGIT copies of wii games region free and/or with cheats, and to make temporary mods to the system mods (IE, copying protected save files such as brawl.) No back ups or anything like that.

    I remember the days when people actually thought these programs were useful, then those damned back up loaders came. Don't worry Gecko OS, I still like you.

    hhm, boots to a picture frame with gecko and v1.8 but no text, settings or anything :\ rest is just blank

    EDIT: ok, that was either due to the gc memory card being in or a game disc being in


    EDIT2: oh well I was hoping for 'remove copy flags' for 4.0 but dont work [​IMG]

    Well, you can use it for backups if you have modded your IOS:es with cIOScorp, or the like. Fact is, this is the most foolproof way of loading backups; way better compatibility than any loader ...

    If it's based on the old Gecko OS(1.07b), he can't chosse not to release the source. Gecko OS 1.07b is licensed under GPL v2, and so is every modification of it anybody releases. This is one of the main reasons why i love open source.

    No, that post was misinformed. It's not a backup launcher.

    Also, no, it cannot apply cheats for GameCube games either.

    WTF are you talking about?
    How do you think Ocarina codes are found? There is more to the Wii than simply loading up backups through either disc or other medi. Gecko OS is the hacking tool!
