Hi everyone,

Sorry about the 1-month wait. You can Blame Nintendo releasing System Menu 4.2, extended game testing, and the theft of beta 1 for that.

Anyways...

cIOSCORP v3.5 is finally here!

Now the README is 8 A4 pages long, so I've put it in spoiler tags. Be sure to read it all!

BE SURE TO READ EVERYTHING IN THIS FILE BEFORE INSTALLING!!!
BE SURE TO RE-READ THE FAQ SECTION BEFORE ASKING ANY QUESTIONS!!!
IF THERE IS ANYTHING YOU DO NOT FULLY UNDERSTAND, RE_READ THE
README, AND IF THAT STILL DOESN'T HELP, PM da_letter_a AT THE
GBATEMP.NET FORUMS BEFORE INSTALLING!!!

It finally exists!

We, da_letter_a & damysteryman, now present to you all:

cIOSCORP v3.5!

What is it?
It's a complete software modification for your Nintendo Wii to
allow you to play almost all of your in-region backup burnt Wii
and GameCube games via the disc channel without opening your
console or having to use a loader application.

What's in it?
Main Installer:
IOS09 = IOS53 v5149 with rev13 DIP
IOS11 = IOS60 v6174 with rev13 DIP + ES_Identify Patch
IOS12 -> IOS15 = IOS53 v5149 with rev14 DIP
IOS17 = IOS53 v5149 with rev14 DIP
IOS20 = IOS60 v6174 with rev13 DIP + ES_Identify Patch
IOS21 -> IOS22 = IOS53 v5149 with rev14 DIP
IOS28 = IOS28 v1293 with rev14 DIP
IOS30 = IOS60 v6174 with rev13 DIP + ES_Identify Patch
IOS31 = IOS31 v3092 with rev14 DIP
IOS33 = IOS33 v2834 with rev14 DIP
IOS34 = IOS34 v3091 with rev14 DIP
IOS35 = IOS35 v3092 with rev14 DIP + ES_Identify Patch
IOS36 = IOS36 v3094 with rev13 DIP + ES_Identify Patch + NAND Permissions Patch
IOS37 = IOS37 v3612 with rev14 DIP + ES_Identify Patch + NAND Permissions Patch
IOS38 = IOS38 v3610 with rev14 DIP
IOS40 = IOS60 v6174 with rev13 DIP + ES_Identify Patch
IOS41 = IOS41 v3091 with rev14 DIP
IOS43 = IOS43 v3091 with rev14 DIP
IOS45 = IOS45 v3091 with rev14 DIP
IOS46 = IOS46 v3093 with rev14 DIP
IOS50 = IOS50 v4889 with rev13 DIP + ES_Identify Patch
IOS52 = IOS52 v5661 with rev13 DIP + ES_Identify Patch
IOS53 = IOS53 v5149 with rev14 DIP
IOS55 = IOS55 v5149 with rev14 DIP
IOS56 = IOS56 v5146 with rev14 DIP
IOS60 = IOS60 v6174 with rev13 DIP + ES_Identify Patch
IOS70 = IOS60 v6174 with rev13 DIP + ES_Identify Patch
All IOS have the Trucha Bug restored.
All IOS, except for 28, 31, 33, 34, 35, 36, and 38, have full Korean
Game support.
All IOS have their version number maxed out to prevent being
overwritten by an Official Nintendo Wii System Update (although we do
not recommend performing a Wii System Update anyway).

Comment form damysteryman:
"Fuck you, Nintendo! You lose!"

cIOSCORP v3.5 does not modify IOSes 4, 16, 51, 57, or 61.

Extras Installer:
cmios (WiiGator)= mios v4 with WiiGator's GC Backup Launcher embedded
into it.
cmios (waninkoko)= waninkoko's cmios, but uses mios v4 as a base,
instead of mios v5.
cIOS55 rev13 DIP= cIOS55 v5149 with rev13 DIP. Supports Dual Layer
discs, but may not fix #001 error properly.
cIOS55 rev14 DIP= cIOS55 v5149 with rev14 DIP. Properly fixes #001
error, but does not support Dual layer discs.

What is needed (other than this package):
- A Nintendo Wii (to modify)
- A non-SDHC Card with heaps of free space (preferably a blank 1GB
or 2GB card)
- Ability to run Wii homebrew (e.g. Homebrew Channel installed)
- waninkoko's cIOS249 installed, to run the installer

Optional, but recommended:
bootmii (preferably as boot2):
We highly recommend installing bootmii, and making a NAND backup,
and/or installing preloader prior to installing cIOSCORP v3.5.
preloader:
Also, installing preloader with a hacks.ini for your System Menu is
recommended, as it has some useful hacks, such as region free games.

How risky is it to install?
cIOSCORP v3.5 overwrites the majority of the system files (IOS)
on your Nintendo Wii with modified ones which "know" how to handle
DVD±R discs, so the installation process itself can be quite risky.
You should be fine if you just let the installer run though.

THIS PACKAGE COMES WITH ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY, NIETHER EXPRESS NOR
IMPLIED. THIS (AS WITH ANY OTHER MODIFICATION) WILL ALSO VIOD ANY
OFFICIAL NINTENDO WARRANTY THAT YOU MAY HAVE. WE (da_letter_a &
damysteryman) ARE NOT HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE THIS MAY
CAUSE TO YOUR NINTENDO WII CONSOLE! YOU USE THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK!
IF YOU DAMAGE YOUR NINTENDO WII, IT IS ENTIRELY YOUR OWN FAULT!

HOWEVER, IF YOU DOWNLOADED THIS, OR PART OF IT, AS PART OF, OR ALONG WITH,
A GUIDE CALLED "Softmii", AND SOMETHING GOES WRONG WITH YOUR WII, THEN YOU
CAN GO AND BLAME "kLiNiKaL" AND THE "Softmii Team" FOR YOUR BRICKED WII!

ALSO, IF YOU DOWNLOADED THIS FROM gamingexposed.com, OR FROM A LINK FOUND
ON gamingexposed.com, AND SOMETHING GOES WRONG WITH YOUR WII, THEN YOU
CAN GO AND BLAME "kLiNiKaL" AND THE "Softmii Team" FOR YOUR BRICKED WII!

How to install it:
Unpack the contents of this .zip file to your SD card and run the
"cIOSCORP v3.5 Main Installer" application via the Homebrew Channel,
sit back, and wait a few minutes. That's it!

cIOSCORP v3.5 should also allow region-changed Korean Wiis to run
System Menu 4.2x without the #003 error. Just be sure to install
cIOSCORP v3.5 BEFORE installing System Menu 4.2x, and DON'T OVERWRITE
IOS70! An example way to update a region-changed Korean Wii to 4.2
(without breaking it) is:

1. First install cIOSCORP v3.5
2. Then install the System Menu 4.2x wad of the region that you
changed to using Wad Manager.

cIOSCORP v3.5 can also load up Korean Games, even if your Wii isn't Korean!
It can also install Korean encrypted wads. Just run Wad Manager under
cIOS60 to install Korean encrypted wads.

If you want to load backup GameCube games too, then run the
"cIOSCORP v3.5 Extras Installer" application via the Homebrew Channel,
and install EITHER WiiGator's OR waninkoko's cmios. Only one can be
installed at a time, but you can change your mind by overwriting the
one installed by installing the one you want.

All System Menu IOS (11, 20, 30, 40, 50, 52, 60, and 70), along with
IOSes 35, 36, and 37, now all have the ES_Identify Patch in them.
This allows preloader compatibility, and should allow the majority
of homebrew applications to use the ES_Identify function, but due
to the way the newer IOS work, it will only allow ES_Identify to be
called once per IOS Reload.

Due to some people having problems with DVDX after installing cIOSCORP,
a DVDX Installer has been included in the cIOSCORP v3.5 package. Just
run the installer and select the "Advanced" install, and select the IOS
you want DVDX to run under. We have it running fine under waninkoko's
cIOS249 rev13(a). If it doesn't work for you, just install it to run
under a different IOS, until it does work. Please note that this DVDX
uses the title ID "DVDX", which System Menu 4.2x deletes on every boot.
If your Wii has System Menu 4.2x installed, you will have to disable it
from deleting it (there is a preloader hack you can use to do this).

Comment from damysteryman:
"We tried to make it as noob friendly as possible. Read README,
copy it over, run it, done! Now just pop in a disc and play!"

How to uninstall it:
Fisrt of all, DON'T DELETE ANY IOS!!! YOU WILL (most likely) KILL
YOUR WII IF YOU DO!!! Rather, the IOS must be OVERWRITTEN with
official, unmodified IOS. Just download the cIOSCORP v3.5 Uninstall
package, copy it to your SD Card, and run the uninstaller via the
Homebrew Channel. The link for the download can be obtained by emailing
[email protected] (along with the cIOSCORP v3.5 download link).

A compatibility list has also been included in the package. Open the
"cIOSCORP_v3.5_compatibility.html" file in your favourite web browser.
Or, you can view the latest version of the compatibility list here:
htp://www.freewebs.com/dmanspokehackland/cIOSCORP_v3.5_compatibility.html

The official cIOSCORP v3.5 package can always be found by emailing
[email protected]. If you get it from anywhere else, it might
not be the official package, and could be corrupted. A member of
a certain wii website repackaged a previous version and distributed
their package, which (accidentally) had a corrupted IOS30. Another
group actually stole a beta version to include into a guide which is
notorious for causing bricks. So be sure to grab the official version!

@Redistributors, news posters, etc.:
If you do plan on redistributing (posting it somewhere else) or
linking to the cIOSCORP v3.5 package, could you please just link to
the original cIOSCORP v3.5 package (the auto-reply email address),
rather than repackaging it yourself? Thanks in advance.

@Wii Hacking/Modding Guide Writers:
If you are making, or have made a Wii Hacking/Modification guide,
and wish to use cIOSCORP v3.5 in your guide, please ask da_letter_a
for permission by pm'ing him at the GBATemp.net forums. There's a
good chance you'll be allowed to use it. However, if you take it and
use it without permission, then we WILL find out, and you be permanently
DENIED permission to use it and you will have to remove it from your
guide/package.

Comment from damysteryman:
"Don't be like kLiNiKaL and the Softmii Team. They stole cIOSCORP v3.5
beta 1, and now they're not allowed to use cIOSCORP v3.x, ever. You
don't want that to happen to you now, do you?"

If you find out that cIOSCORP v3.5 is being used without permission,
ESPECIALLY IF IT'S A BETA VERSION, please report it to da_letter_a at
the GBATemp.net forums. Your report will be greatly appreciated.

@People with other features/mods you want included:
If you have any extra features and/or modifications that you think
should be added to cIOSCORP v3.x, PLEASE DON'T MAKE AND RELEASE THIRD
PARTY MODIFICATIONS. Instead, could you please pm da_letter_a at the
GBATemp.net forums about your feature/modification, and we should be
able to work something out. There's a good chance we'll add your
feature/modification to the official cIOSCORP v3.x, and you'll get
full credit for your feature/modification, which makes you a part
of cIOSCORP v3.x!

Comment from damysteryman:
"We don't want cIOSCORP v3.x to end up like the DS's R4. Ugh..."

Another comment from damysteryman:
"I'm talking to you, cfwprophet."

@Thieves, such as “kLiNiKaL”, and the “Softmii Team”, and anyone else
affiliated with "Softmii" and/or "gamingexposed.com":
Comment from damysteryman:
"Go Away! And don't come back! And don't use cIOSCORP v3.x!"

Another comment from damysteryman:
"We're watching you, kLiNiKaL....
We're also watching you, Softmii Team...
You better not steal this, like you did with cIOSCORP v3.5 beta 1..."

FAQ:
Does it work with LU64+ or equivalent Wiis?
-> YES! It is the ONLY full-on disc channel loading solution for
LU64+ and equivalent Wiis!
cIOSCORP v1 and v2 will BRICK LU64+ (or equivalent) WIIS!

Do I have to uninstall anything before installing this?
-> NO!!!
NEVER UNINSTALL OR DELETE ANY SORT OF SYSTEM FILES!
DO NOT UNINSTALL THE SYSTEMMENU!
DO NOT UNINSTALL ANY IOS!
DO NOT UNINSTALL THE BC!
DO NOT UNINSTALL THE MIOS!
DON'T EVEN TOUCH BOOT2! (let bootmii do that, if it can)
OR ELSE YOU WILL KILL YOUR WII!
Just make a NAND backup if you can, then run the installer.
THAT'S IT!

Does it work with Wiis that haver the new "D3-2" DVD drive?
-> Unfortunately, due to the way the D3-2 DVD Drive works, no.
This is because the D3-2 is missing the debug DVD commands that
all other Wii DVD Drives have, and so it PHYSICALLY CANNOT READ
DVD±R DISCS! This means that no disc softmod will work with them,
including but not limited to cIOSCORP, NeoGamma, the disc loading
section in USB Loader GX, or any other backup loaders. You should
look into USB Game loading instead.

Comment from damysteryman:
"I use USB Loader GX for all my USB game loading needs! But there
are other good USB Loaders available too."

Can I switch off or unplug the Wii during installation/uninstallation?
Is there any way to cancel the installation during the install/uninstall
process?
-> NO!!!
DOING SO WILL KILL YOUR WII!
Once the installer/uninstaller has loaded, the disclaimer screen is
the only time you can back out. Press B to exit the installer/uninstaller,
or press A to go through with installation/uninstallation.

My discs don't show up in the System Menu! What do I do?
-> Make sure the game you are trying to play is the same region
as your Wii. If you are trying to play an import, make sure you
have some sort of region free hack. If you have preloader installed,
try to experiment with enabling and disabling preloader hacks,
especially if the hack's name has the words "region", "game"
and/or "disc" in it (especially "Force Disc Region"), or maybe
change your Wii's region setting.
-> Your Wii may have the new "D3-2" DVD Drive, which physically
cannot read DVD±R discs at all. You should look into USB game
loading instead.

Is the Hackmii Installer compatible?
-> Unfortunately, no. The Hackmii installer refuses to run under
any fakesigned IOS. cIOSCORP versions 1 & 2 (of which cIOSCORP
v3.x has no affiliation with) caused a lot of problems for Team
Twiizers when it came to solving user-submitted bugs, so they
decided to disable the Hackmii Installer from running under any
fakesigned IOS. You will have uninstall cIOSCORP v3.5 using the
uninstaller first, run the Hackmii Installer and install what you
need, then reinstall cIOSCORP v3.5.

Is RawkSD compatible?
-> Not really. We've tried several attempts to get it fully working,
but it never wants to work properly with the LU64+ compatible IOS.
Some testers reported that any RawkSD related stuff that was already
installed still functioned after installing cIOSCORP v3.5, but they
were unable to install any more RawkSD related stuff afterwards. So...
maybe try installing all your RawkSD needs before installing cIOSCORP?
RawkSD is quite picky and temperamental, and it only seems to work when
it wants to. We can't guarantee that anything RawkSD related will work
after installing cIOSCORP v3.5.

DVDs won't read properly in MPlayer! What do I do?
-> The following answer is based on MPlayer_CE: try going to "Open,
File, Wii DVD", this should mount the DVD, which you can then go
back and select "Open, DVD Video, Play DVD", or maybe select
"Play Title #x" instead, or you could try going to
"Open, File, Wii DVD" and load the .VOB file you want to play.
Or you could just select "Play DVD" and wait several minutes. Your
Wii may have the new “D3-2” DVD drive, which cannot read regular DVDs.

What causes the #001 error?
-> The majority of games have some code in them that checks whether or
not the disc is on a DVD-ROM. If it is, the game runs fine. If not
(e.g. if it's on a DVD-R), the game will spit out the #001 error.
Rev14's DIP module properly fixes it though, so any game (not running
under any System Menu IOS, IOS09, or IOS36, as they use rev13's DIP)
should not have this error. If you do get the #001 error, burn the game
onto a DVD+R (NOT DVD-R) and BOOKTYPE it to DVD-ROM. This will tell the
Wii that it is a DVD-ROM disc and it will load fine.

What causes the #002 error?
-> More recent games have another piece of code in them that checks what
IOS the game is running, against the IOS that the game's tmd requests.
If the IOS it's running under does not match the IOS it wants
(e.g. you forced it to run under another IOS), it will spit out the
#002 error. cIOSCORP users SHOULD NOT GET the #002 error, as the games
are not being forced to an IOS they don't want, but if you do get it,
make sure that any "IOS Reloading" or "Force Discs to run under IOS249"
hacks you have (such as the one used in preloader hacks.ini) is DISABLED.

Metroid Prime Trilogy doesn't load MP3! What do I do?
-> Just install the "cIOS55-v5149-v3.5-rev13_DIP.wad" using the
"cIOSCORP v3.5 Extras Installer". This will install a cIOS55 that can
read Dual Layer discs, but it does not properly fix the #001 error.

Wii Sports Resort, Sonic and the Black Knight, and other newer games
give #001 error! What do I do?
-> You must have the Metroid Prime Trilogy fix
("cIOS55-v5149-v3.5-rev13_DIP.wad") installed. Just install the
"cIOS55-v5149-v3.5-rev14_DIP.wad" using the
"cIOSCORP v3.5 Extras Installer" to fix this by overwriting it.
Keep in mind that this will remove the #001 error, but it cannot
properly support Dual Layer discs, stopping Metroid Prime Trilogy
from loading MP3. Or, you could just read the answer to the FAQ question
"What causes the #001 error?", and do what it says.

Ghostbusters freezes at the Wrist Strap Health & Safety Screen!
What do I do?
-> According to WiiPower, this seems to be a problem with the Scene
Release, which could be a bad dump. It could also be due to the 3x
DVD reading speed, as compared to the 6x reading speed used for
legitimate Wii discs. There is a "disc eject trick" that I found on
gbatemp (can't remember who posted it, though. @Whoever discovered
this, credits to you). I have reworded it into steps:

Start at the wii menu

1. Make sure the nunchuk is connected before starting
2. Insert disc
3. Banner should load up in disc channel
4. Hit Start (but be ready to hit eject)
5. You should see the screen flicker for a second, when this
happens, HIT EJECT IMMEDIATELY!
6. It should say "Please Insert Disc blah blah blah", just wait a
few seconds, then insert the disc.
7. The game should load fine from that point.

This might have to be tried a few times, and will need practice
to master.

Here's a quote by WiiPower from this thread:
<a href="http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=123307" target="_blank">http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=123307</a>
"Problem category 3(heath screen freeze games)

These games freeze at the heath screen for some users, mostly for
people using discs and that only get 3x reading speed. There's no
real solution for this problem yet. Some people get it to work by
pressing certain buttons with the correct timing. And many people
report that they get the game to load by pressing eject with the
correct timing, and reinserting the disc when they are asked for.
The correct timing seems to be as soon as the screen flashes white
for the health screen. And a 3rd solution that is reported to work
is to remove the SD card. It seems these problems are caused by
faulty piracy releases, many people reported that a self created
backup works flawlessly, while the 3 burns before have this issue.
Maybe this problem is caused by scrubbing the game."

Comment from damysteryman:
"Fixing Ghostbusters compatibility really pissed us off.
I mean REALLY. I'm assuming it pissed off the testers as well.
It took 5 fixes to make it work. And even then, due to the way it
works, you have to use the eject trick. Animal Crossing Wii worked
with the first fix we made for it.

If I ever see a ghost, I am going to personally bust the
damn thing myself!"

Hey, da_letter_a, what preloader hacks do you have enabled/disabled?
-> Check the included "cIOSCORP_v3.5_compatibility.html" file. Or, you
can view the latest version of the compatibility list here:
htp://www.freewebs.com/dmanspokehackland/cIOSCORP_v3.5_compatibility.html

This this related to the v1/v2 cIOSCORP?
-> No.

Are you affiliated with any of the creators of the v1/v2
cIOSCORP?
-> No, except for WiiBlaster "passing down" cIOSCORP to da_letter_a.

Then why did you use the name "cIOSCORP"?
-> It seemed to be the only name that seems to fit what this
modification does.

Credits:
waninkoko - made the cIOS249 we all know and love, we used DIP
modules from that to make cIOSCORP v3.5
- made Wad Manager, we modified it to make the
"cIOSCORP v3.5 Extras Installer"
- made one of the two cmios included in cIOSCORP v3.5
WiiGator - made one of the two cmios included in cIOSCORP v3.5
WiiPower - for telling us about rev14's DIP Module breaking
Dual Layer Support
- for explaining the "Problem category 3
(health screen freeze games)"
disorder - for making Wad Batch installer, we modified it to
make the "cIOSCORP v3.5 Main Installer" and the
"cIOSCORP v3.5 Uninstaller"
WiiBlaster - the creator of the original cIOSCORP, he let us
use the name "cIOSCORP" as no other name seemed
to fit what this modification does. In a way,
he passed cIOSCORP down to da_letter_a
ChokeD - for hosting cIOSCORP v3.5 and setting up an
auto-reply email service to distribute it
QLeap - for all the info and patches used to add full
Korean Game support
bushing - for posting some useful information on the hackmii
blog
marcan, bushing,- for making DVDX and it's installer, which is included

And of course...
All of my testers (too many to name, you all did an
ABSOLUTELY SUPERB JOB! Without you guys, this
would never be as refined as it is now!)

Wanted (for the next version of cIOSCORP v3.x):
- the fixed DIP (rev14 + DL support). waninkoko has it,
but he hasn't released it yet. We really need it!
Please release it soon waninkoko!
- test results for any games we have not tested (check
the compatibility list to see what data you have to
give me, and how to set it out, before telling me)
- to know if cIOSCORP v3.5 includes any IOS which are
NOT USED BY ANY WII DISCS
- whether or not to include a cIOS16, for the pink
"Wii Backup Disc ver 1.31" support. Should we, or not?
If you have any of the above, or can do any of the above, please pm
da_letter_a at the GBATemp.net forums.

Changelog:
v3.5 - added IOS70 for support for Wiis with System Menu 4.2x
- added ability to run System Menu 4.2x on

- fixed Animal Crossing Wii compatibility
- fixed Ghostbusters compatibility as much as
possible
- moved cmios to use an installer separate to the
main installer, for people who don't want to
install the included cmios
- removed IOSes 51, 56, 57, and 61 as they were
unnecessary
- completely overhauled the README

v3.1 - fixed the #001 errors many games were giving.

v3.0 - Unreleased, due to the amount of #001 errors.
EDIT: I forgot to mention that cIOSCORP v3.5 has full Korean Game support, even on non-Korean wiis!
And if a region changed Korean Wii owner installes cIOSCORP v3.5, they can then install System Menu 4.2 afterward, as the cIOS70 does not trigger 4.2 to give #003 error! (Just make sure you install cIOSCORP v3.5 first, and never overwrite cIOS70!)

GBATemp.net's rules don't permit me to post direct links, but you can email the auto-reply address <a href="mailto:[email protected]">[email protected]</a> which will point you in the right direction.

Check out the compatibility list:

Cool stuff but complaining that someone is stealing it really isn't fair if you don't have an installer that patches the files on the spot, because in both cases you are stealing stuff from Nintendo, just Softmii is stealing it from you as well.

I would really look forward to a legal cIOScorp.

Yeah, I have been talking with someone about an online installer, but I don't think it will appear any time soon.

Cool, I'm just wondering Da_letter_A, is there anyway you can have a target installer for the system menu they are currently running, so it will install the cIOS for the proper system menu and then it will install functioning IOS's (nonstubs) for the rest of the system menu IOS's.

This should also make it compatible with the Hackmii installer except for on 3.2U/3.3U/Any system menu that uses IOS30.

From what I know, if you have an input you could definitely do it and there is no way it would brick (have it ES Indentify and trucha bug everything as well so there's no chance of any issue with preloader) and it should make it compatible for the average user with Hackmii installer. Just saying...

I've always loved cIOSCorp, but the flamey readme pissed me off a little.

...you guys should have just ignored ice's troll/flame posts and just done your thing.

Your replies in the complaint thread were enough IMO your cred was never damaged!

That's a good idea, illinialex24. I didn't do this with the offline version, as that is meant to work on all wiis.

But to have compatibility with the hackmii installer, it cannot be fakesigned, meaning no ES_Identify patch, and no trucha patch.

I know there are lot of IOS, but I'm not sure exactly how many are used only be channels, but not discs.

EDIT: OK, in the next release, the will be no more complaining in the README. damysteryman wasn't really happy about those guys.

Ah yeah thats true for IOS30. So if its past 3.2U or 3.3, it should be fine though.

I'm glad to see how far cIOScorp has moved along though, great work and I can't wait until it is legal and can target certain features in the future.

Erant, svpe in the cIOSCORP v3.5 package"
Look who's calling who thieves. And you guys threaten people for "stealing" stuff you use to steal games. Anyone else see the irony?

Haven't had a single brick during the entire test phase.

But then again, there's the disclaimer in the README:

Awesome, violating Ninty's copyright and team twiizers' copyright. Hint: distributing the HackMii installer is not allowed.

Way to go to the gbatemp admins for allowing the autoresponder thing. Isn't it nice when all it takes to post illegal stuff is another layer of indirection? Maybe people should just start posting links to game torrents; after all, those aren't warez themselves.
