    Stop using my installer, and go out and fucking code your own. That was my first damn try with C and it sucks, and its been around for almost a year now. CODE YOUR OWN FREAKING BETTER ONE and STOP STEALING MINE.

    because I have no idea who this random guy is that takes my installer for some random purpose almost a year later.

    its not very good and I don't want blame for any bricks it causes, so he needs to make his own

    Well, it has always been pretty much "use at your own risk". Regardless, if someone bricks, blame would most definitely fall on him. I have to be honest, I was not even aware that your code was driving the installer.

    true, but cioscorp 3.x has been around for months, why start complaining now?
    he puts clear warning its their own fault if they brick, so no one is going to blame you.
    if anything, we thank you for you installer it works great.

    1. I gave you full credit for the installer, so it's technically not classed as stealing. Go read the cIOSCORP v3.x readme, the "Credits" section. I've even given credits to you in the installer itself. You'll see in the banner, after the "cIOSCORP v3.4 installer" text, in brackets the text "Original installer by icefireicefire".
    2. So far, it hasn't caused any bricks, and if it did, it wouldn't be your fault. Everyone would just blame me, as it's my cIOSCORP that's its installing. If anybody blames you, just direct them to me. But then again, any modification comes with absolutely no warranty, so if someone bricks their wii, the only person they have to blame is themself.
    3. Surely, if someone else is using your product, and giving you credit, it must be good, and doing it's job properly.

    Thanks for making the installer, icefireicefire. It does its job just fine.

    The flat lands.
    I agree with da_letter_A. This was a bit of a dick move icefireicefireicefire. He gives you full credit for the installer. He gave you in the install itself AND the readme. And was it open source?

    1. its not legal to do that, and worse with credits, as it proves you know that.
    2. I've gotten blamed for stuff less likely than this before. Also, the code fails.
    3. no, it just must be the easiest solution for someone lazy.

    Also, its not open source, and GPL you *can* revoke (just not on older versions).

    Right now my mind is just going Cable Car. And cIOScorp isn't legal anyway so holding it to legal standards in the first place is completely ironic.

    She's on your mind. She's on your mind. Let's rearrange. I wish you were a stranger I could disengage.

    Not unless someone broke the terms of the GPL with regards to that particular released product. You can relicense stuff under another license, but you can't unlicense a work released under the GPL; if so, the GPL would be quite impotent.

    Wasn't the installer a mod of the WAD Manager anyway so it would be open source by default?? At least the original.
