    Can this EHCI module just be swapped for the buggy one in an existing .wad of the cIOS, or would doing it manually require other steps? If so, which .app is it for each given base IOS? I would like to use this, but I would like to fix it in all of my cIOSes, not just 249 and 250 (since those are the only options in ModMii...), so I would like to be able to just dump all of my cIOSes, patch them and reinstall. Here's what I have installed:

    IOS246[56]
    IOS247[57]
    IOS248[58] (I'm assuming base 58 uses Nintendo's EHCI module, so no need for it here).
    IOS249[38]
    IOS250[37]

    How can I do this? Or would it be easier to use ModMii to create the cIOSes and just modify the tmd to change the install slot?

    the easiest method,
    just use ModMii's Advanced Downloads feature, select the cIOS u want to modify, then enter the new cIOS slot and version number when prompted, then install the new wads like normal

    about what u were asking, u can check the .app file using a hex editor, if u look near the very end of the file, the authors typically title the files, like mload or ehci, etc. Then just unpack the wad, and repack it using the modified ehci module

    Have you tried to format your WD Elements disk with NTFS format?

    @jesquinas:
    Not yet, I liked WBFS best, yet. Also, why should it work with NTFS when both FAT32 and WBFS fail while on the other HDD everything works fine?

    But I will try it on Wednesday, as I said. Maybe today, but I do not think that I'll have the time.

    Have you considered the health of the drive? Does the drive lag when connected to a PC? You would have to disable caching to catch this as PC apps tend to pre-fetch data. I recommend connecting the drive to a PC and running a sector scan and a stress test. The drive might be failing. If the drive is a DUD, get it replaced under warranty if you can. Seems like you have exhausted all other possibilities as far as cIOS and different Homebrew combinations are considered.

    Not easily (so not in the next few days I guess), but I'll do my best.

    I'm one of those "never had an issue, but d2x fixed it nonetheless" guys. Great work, though! [​IMG]

    Ok, I was mostly just checking that I could just drop this over the top of the original EHCI module without any other modifications and have it work.

    I totally agree. So far I've only had one HDD give me problems similar to the ones described and in the end it wound up being a faulty drive.
