    The cMIOS is basically identical with WiiGator's cMIOS, but without the DVD-R patch and i always use MIOSv4. The cMIOS should allow all retail gamecube games to be played from the disc channel, and it allows to boot gamecube homebrew.

    This cMIOS is only for use with retail discs. Backup gamecube games do boot with this cMIOS, but only if the loader doesn't allow the game to reset the drive.(=not compatible with any current GC backup launcher) If the game can't reset the drive, a disc change is impossible. So if you want to run gamecube backups, get WiiGator's cMIOS which allows everything this cMIOS does, plus running of gamecube backups.

    My intension was a legal cMIOS! And v4 because i think everything nintendo was updated was protection against backups and Action Replay.

    Umm, not to set off some huge philosophical stint, but by that same logic, isn't HBC, LoadMii, etc. ineligible for upload to WiiBrew? They can be used to launch gamecube backups (using GC Backup Launcher, or NeoGamma for that matter) in the same indirect sense. I wonder if Marcan pitched a fit...after successfully trying one of his backups. [​IMG]

    This is one of the reasons why I largely avoid wiibrew except for wiki research, sites like wii-homebrew don't waste so goddamn much time pretending to dance the fine moral line. Refusing to upload clearly copyrighted material is fine and wholly understandable. Refusing to show this, however, is just silly.

    Its a shame that ppl like wiipower spend time doing this stuff then have to figure out if it makes marcans little piggly wiggly tingle.
    back on topic,

    Does it show the logo from his backup launcher when booting the game from disc channel?

    I can't get Eternal Darkness, Starfox Adventures and Zelda Ocarina of Time/Master Quest(all retail discs) to work with my loader, they all get a disc read error on the 1st screen. With this cMIOS, i successfully booted Eternal Darkness from disc channel.

    So it may fix your problem, maybe not. Random issues are always problematic, i guess it won't help.

    Great stuff, you had been kinda quite for a while and this explains it [​IMG]

    I've got over 80 retail GC games and a couple of retail Action Replays but I think this will be better than AR for a few reasons, so I think I'm gonna be following this.

    I don't know why it would be allowe don wiibrew myself if you removed the DVD-R patch, hmm. I mean I can for example use the homebrew channel to launch a USB loader or cIOS installer so they facilitate piracy in a way too. Then it's their site and their rules I suppose.

    Anyway again great stuff [​IMG]

    Once the loader is finished and released on:
    http://wiird.l0nk.org/forum/index.php#1

    I will ask in #wiidev if i can link it on WiiBrew, but i don't expect i will be allowed to do it. Oh and the most work on the cMIOS was actually to change my TBR code to say MIOS and to figure out that i need to round up the size of the modified module.
