    If you have a game that freeze more or less reliabily, and a usbgecko, you can help me debug my usb driver.

    use yal.dol or usbloader.dol given in this archive.

    - You can use the special wiiload version I use to easily get the log.
    usage:
    wiiload yal.dol RMCP01

    This will load mariokart using yal, and then print the usbgecko log, as well as saving it on your harddrive as yal.dol.log

    - or launch either loader with usual method, and get the log by connecting to your gecko with your usual log tools.

    These versions of the loaders are specially made to load ios223 if usbgecko is connected. Else, it will load ios222
    cios_installer.dol included in the archive installs that cios 223.
    This is a special version of my cios_usb2 with usbgecko logging capabilities. Source available if you ask kindly on my mail.

    Please report freeze bugs with logs and harddrive description at kwiirk@gmail.com

    Edit:
    If you dont have usbgecko, but are experiencing freeze, and are interrested in helping,
    please write me a mail. If there are enough credible people, I'll write a cios that logs into SDCard.
    Dont expect it to write file in fat filesystem. You'll have to retrieve the log by using raw sdcard access utily like 'dd' on linux.
    And your SDCard original data will be corrupted.

    that's a nice project mate. but i guees that they should report here.
    this way, you won't get spammed with several times the same report (users will check if the error has already been reported) and you/we can all benefit from suggesting ideas or fixes.

    just my 2 cents though.

    Would love top help, but have no usbgecko. There are many games that reset to wii menu (IOS reloading games?) other then that everything works great for me on my HDD

    I guess there is not much gecko os owners out here...

    Could dumping to sd card or into a dummy iso in the wbfs filesystem be an option here? That way possibly you'll get lots of responses.

    I think theoretically it would be possible to write debug output to wbfs. The problem is that kwiirk is searching for freezes, and i think most freezes are because of wbfs/usb connectivity problems. Hmm but in general i would like to have a debugger that doesn't require additional hardware.
