    I have just recently found my old GameCube last week.
    I found it's cords, controllers, games, extra controller cords, GAME BOY PLAYER, GBA adapter, and working and non-working Memory Card (please help me with the non-working one here).
    I want to get into hacking it and adding homebrew to it.

    I'd like to know about:
    1. Great hacks that don't involve piracy, and
    2. Great homebrew sites.

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm not sure about this stuff.
    Some other people should help you out

    I believe somebody managed to do it by using the Wii to transfer files to the GC Memory card, but I'm not 100% sure.

    As far as I know, you'll need a mod chip & an SD Gecko (or similar)...

    If you want a mod chip, I think that the only mod chip still available is the XenoGC...

    QOOB, Viper, etc, are long gone... (as far as I know)
