    This is just some side effect of another program i developed, but i thought it could be useful. I have no intention on improving this, like adding an icon, .xml or readme.

    Basically this is just a GC homebrew booter with the Gecko OS for GC 1.06d fixed .dol integrated. The most interesting change is that it unlocks the dvd drive(tell the arm to finish its stuff) before it actually loads the .dol.

    Unlocked drive == Gecko OS can reset the drive and will work unlike with other methods.

    does this have any advantage over simply booting the geckoOS GC iso?

    Booting the .iso? I'd say the advantage is that you can boot it with via HBC, forwarder, channel or whatever and it will work. Booting Gecko OS for GC from a burned GC disc has one single advantage, it does not require to have a cMIOS installed.

    Would it works with Drive D3-2?

    It should, but as it's just Gecko OS, it will only read retail discs. Backups should be possible with it if you have a (good) modchip.
