WARNING: You need to make a NAND backup with Bootmii before using this tool.
This is required to recover from fatal errors.

cBoot2 is a patched Boot2. You should be able to install a patched IOS if Bootmii is installed at boot2 location. You need to remove the GC memory card from slot 2 if you run this.

Note: This package is only needed for people, who have updated without return and lost all downgrade capabilities. You will need a boot1 with a sign bug to use it.

Purpose: Start patched IOS without installing using Bootmii loader. The
original Bootmii doesn't support to modify the file system. With this
package you get around this problem.

The description is included in the file.

Edit: Link to new version, which will work if Bootmii is installed as IOS and fix SD card problems.
Download cBoot2 v16

I am not sure if this will work on all systems. Please give me some response, if this is working.

It is configured for PAL. It should changed the mode when boot.dol is started.

Good to see you posting this though as I'm sure it will come in handy for many, many people

Questions:

You can't run this on consoles with new boot1 (if your are not a developer and have an USB-Gecko). You also could not recover from all problems, because Bootmii may not be started.

You can't install Bootmii as boot2 on consoles with new boot1. cBoot2 is not working when started from Bootmii which is installed as IOS. IPC messages are lost. Only the Starlet code is working. So you can't run this.
I heard that the hardware is changed in new consoles so that something on the Starlet is not running. But I don't remember what is was. You don't need to downgrade your IOS, you could also patch the new IOS versions.

if you downgrade a wii with the serial number LU64 then it will brick no doubt. however, some wii's after that such as LU65 have been confirmed working with downgrading and such.

Can you maybe explain the readme a bit more?

your front SD card (the first colum is the SHA1 sum):

6571655cad06c110c8895e910ff3fe307da1c52e /00000001/00000024/v1042/00000004

bd0f4fc7dfe0d8f137549eb36fbfd56b3dae84ee /00000001/00000001/v2/00000000.app
932ee88b8a63c6ac0856b222ae06acec77dc33ae /00000001/00000001/v2/tmd.2
ace0f15d2a851c383fe4657afc3840d6ffe30ad0 /00000001/00000001/v2/cetk

The files in directory v2 are Boot2. You need to extract BOOT2-v2-64.wad.out.wad.
Note: /00000001/00000001/v2/00000000.app is decrypted.


First i created the directory 00000004 in 00000001/00000024/v104.

Well:
I extracted boot2... from CoD.
Unpacked it.
I got:

00000000.app
00000001.app
00000002.app
cert
tik
tmd trailer

I renamed the .tmd from the boot2 into tmd.2
But where to get the cetk?
There is only a cert onyl a cert.
Well i got the cert from NUSD by downloading a IOS.

And why is there a 000000010000024\v10420000004 directory.
I know that this is IOS36 v.1042.
Will it download all the files or do i need to copy them there?
Anyway:

Time to try it.
Lets see if i placed all files correctly =)



Oh and to clarify something:
For example you uninstall all IOS you have.
With normal Bootmii you couldnt start an app.
But with this you can right?

Hi, I got all the files, checked their hash, and put them on my SD card in the right places but the installer fails in exactly the same way as if there was no files on there.

Code:
net_gethostbyname failed: -6
Error making http request
Bad tik signature!
Error: Failed to load SDI module.

I'm using an SDHC card so it might be that. I don't need this, I'm just playing around, but if any more information would help you fix this for those who do I'll happilly supply it.

EDIT: I've confirmed I have the right files in the right place, I've got a pack from a friend who got this working and our files were identical. cBoot2 works fine but the installer still gives the same error.

cetk is the name for a ticket file (tik). You should be able to rename tik to cetk and be fine.

Yeah ok thanks but i got stuck at a new problem.

When i boot my Wii with the files on SD Card:
Cboot dol loader

IOS Version 36 v7 0x00240007
IOS sucessfully loaded
Sdio_Startup() rv=0
fat _driver: disk init failed
Init Fat driver failed
Failed to load boot.dol from front sd reader.


I even formatted my SD Card with SD Formatter (it performs a low level format if i remember right) but it still doesnt work.

The cause for "Sdio_Startup() rv=0" is lost IPC messages, because the PowerPC initialization is not complete and I may forgot something. When you see messages on the screen, the Starlet has already transfered data from the SD card. This problem occurs for me only if Bootmii is started as IOS (e.g. started from HBC).

Note: The program will try to download Boot2 from internet, but this is not available on the Nintendo servers. The file 00000004 was also used for the Backup Launcher 0.3 Gamma installation.

for the life of me i cant get any farther than this error message.. where can i find a dependable program to unpack wads? do the contents need to be decrypted? I have all the files in the right place, and the sums match whats in the readme file.
