    lol... If you go to static.hackmii.com it says go away. XD

    Wait, is this like the other one, complete region free or do you have to run it every time?

    This one does not touch the NAND, so no, it has to be run every time.


    On a side note.... you can choose the menu IOS, so we might be able to patch in a softmod....

    so wait... what does this do?

    from what I could try to understand, it's an "on the fly" language or region selector?

    +Region free Channels and Discs
    +Disables the health warning
    +Disables the background music
    +Loads the system menu based on the IOS you select(including custom IOS5 and 249)
    +Enables system menu debugging via USBGecko

    All without modifying the NAND.

    Oooh boy, here come all the "I can has softmod?" comments.

    But, so I understand correctly, this is the version for NTSC Wiis?

    For anyone who doesn't understand what this is for: It's mostly for testing out patches, that could be made to the system menu, without the risk of bricking anything. So if you are not a dev, you can just turn around and walk away. [​IMG]

    This is a huge break thru... awesome work marcan!

    As a side note, is there any word on breaking Starlet yet? I really wish I knew how to do this, and had all the tools, but alas, I have to sit back and watch [​IMG]

    What would you want to break on Starlett? It works good as is. And there are allready custom IOS-versions running on it, if that's what you mean.

    Software running on Starlet is not of any concern. Controlling it, however, is the concern.

    IOSs are Starletts firmware, so if you run your own custom IOS on it you controll it. Where s the concern?

    c'mon, this pecuniar talk
    you both know what you are talking about

    system menu patch = custom IOS for system menu = unlocked starlet features directly from system menu

    Actually, you're quite misinformed.


    Starlet is a SoC and the IOS is the operating system.

    It's the equivalent of a PC and Windows.

    The Marcan's menu may have different features.
    How can it disable the health warning if it's a temporary patch ?
    It have to be applied with HBC each time you want to use it. Reseting the wii will remove the realtime patch, then the warning will come back (I think).

    Import games that were not working without freeloader/gecko OS still do not work. (both GC and wii).
