    I tried using geckoOS 1.9 but for launch channel I get an error saying it can't find any channels.

    I tried using the latest 1.9.3.1 but that's completely missing the menu option at all, even with debugger on.

    Gambia, The
    The option is missing, because Gecko OS detects that it won't be able to launch channels. Depending on which version of Gecko OS you use, you need an IOS36 or IOS249 that allows to use ES_Identify. And i think it's not working well with patched IOS, while more than half of all Wiis have trouble with the ancient IOS36 it was written for.

    What do you want to use it for? Maybe using TriiForce or Mighty Channles is easier for you, both should allow using Ocarina codes as well.

    Ah thank you, I will check out mighty channels and I guess see what's up with my IOSes.
