    for this exploit to work would it be needed that the system IOS be patched or the games need IOS? if the system IOS was not a good place to start what about that menu system loader? the one that "aims to replace the current menu" could you not code 1:dvd reading into that 2:Patch/execute an IOS into it(to call the IOS to read the disk or what ever) as to not get bricks n such

    Um, what are you trying to say? Say that in English please. I don't understand at all... [​IMG]

    An ISO from the SD slot would be limited to 2GB or less, due to no SDHC. DVD-R can reach around 8GB on a dual layer disc.

    The place to start would be old games that call, say, IOS12.

    That way, you don't affect new functionality.

    I believe the Disc Launcher channel would have to get patched, too, though.

    what hes trying to say. I think is that by "ISO loader" they mean ISO backups that have been burned onto disk, in a sence you dont keep "burned/backed up" disks on your hardrive, you have the ISO image.

    Oh yeah. I forgot there's a difference in file system or something between real Wii games, and DVD backups.

    hackmii.com updated by marcan... congrats to nitrotux for finding the correct possible hole

    however, sorry for the pirates but backup boot seems to require more than that
    dvd library is going to be great anyway for emus

    I edited a DI IOS module elf, and I am working rewriting the DI module entirely with custom code.

    After reading Hackmii I came to an understanding that sometime in the near future I would be able to watch DVD's on my wii?


    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] I'm so happy I'm crying [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    correct me if i am wrong about this whole thing but could that also mean a possible DVD channel in the near future?

    ......Crying slowly quiets as my sobbing body is dragged away......

    Uh yeah..... right.....

    I don't know about you people, but I have about nine DVD players, not counting devices that support MPEG2.


    The Wii can't even upscale...
