    Team Zero4, has released a test build patch today.

    Patch open for testing!

    Google for Zero 4 Translation, check their forums, you will need the original disc and it is recommended you have a NAND backup...

    The patch runs off a dol file.

    Awesomeness indeed!

    I thought this project was dead, I'll see if I can get it to work.

    It uses some weird patching process and does NOT describe how it works or at least what it does, but says it's beta and can brick and stuff...

    When these people don't even tell what they do, and with which IOS they mess, i can't recommend anybody to try it. Also it *looks* like it will only work with retail discs and modchips, but i can't say for sure, because there's no info what this patching does. Maybe there's some info in the patch package, but i won't download and break law, just to read the readme.

    Form what i have head, it uses some kind of hybrid dip module that reads the patched files from sd and the other ones from disc. That's why i think it won't work together with any softmod cIOS. But this info is months old now, i don't know how they do it and i can't see any info on that.

    So when they release the patchfiles you should be able to use them to patch an iso apparently.

    I guess they want legit importers to be able to play it too, but instead they're making it a total fiasco, bleh

    Thanks. But it still would be better if they would tell what it does. I guess i just have to wait for a final release until i get more answers. (or i could ask direclty, but i'm too lazy)

    fyi since the patch says it will load data off the sd card, and the patch doesn't come with any such data, the testpatch isn't at all a translation release, its just testing his dvd call patches probably

    From what this patching does i would say it's "just" a cIOS that can read from disc and sd card at the same time for game data. From what it says "The patch will boot from an SD card[...]", it sounds like a temporary cIOS like the one from cBoot2. A cBoot2 cIOS wouldn't require to have the trucha bug, and it wouldn't do changes to the nand, especially no dangerous ones. Let's see what these guys are up to.
