earlier this afternoon I started this thread below: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=113862 I was asking for someone with devkit to compile a version of tona's Patchmii cIOS clone rev5 that runs it's syscalls through IOS16. I still feel there is a use for this and am still hoping someone will work some magic. More importantly, however, I feel like that could be just one aspect of a bigger project. I want to take that original thought in a new direction, and here it is, I'm calling it Project DolphinX Goal: Through primarily two branches, this program will make use of a wealth of open-source wii software readily available by building "recovery" tiers of these already existing programs, to extend their possible use, and make the experience more personally controlled by the end-user. This is NOT a programming/coding project, and it is not a project to set out and accomplish something new. It is to allow us more "plan B's" when dealing with unexpected events in the wii scene. What it will need from the community: Really only two things: persons with ideas, and persons willing to compile, test run, etc. This project is about BEGINNING to do SOMETHING with available open-sources. Branches: The initial branches, at least until a new update rolls along, should revolve primarily around IOS16, and IOS249. Apps compiled to send syscalls thru 16 will be codenamed "Fallback" and apps compiled to send syscalls thru 249 will be codenamed "cIOS" (duh!) ex: "cIOS_PatchMii_Clone-rev5[Fallback]" would install tona's cIOS clone through syscalls at IOS16 "WUFE[cIOS]" would be pointing at IOS249 a possible third branch could be codename "Core" throw some apps at IOS254 (better known as PatchMii_Core) a possible extension for those willing to do some legwork could be a "Revolution" branch, where an IOS selector is included. I'm quite positive this is not beyond some people around here. GETTING STARTED: Things that are really needed to build the intial framework and to "start big": Classification "FALLBACK": -xyzzy -tona's cIOS PatchMii Clone (Rev3,4,or5) -WUFE -AnyTitle Deleter Classification "CIOS": -WUFE -AnyTitle Deleter -FS_Browser -Menu Loader Clone -PatchMii_Core Installer -DVDX Installer Classification "Core": -DVDX Installer -Wad Manager -AnyRegion Changer while I have other ideas about where to take this project, I don't want to share them all right now. I have reasons, one of which is simply because this whole project may get completely rejected by the lot of you. I await comments and contributions, just please be specific in anything you say and/or do, and remember, this is primarily to increase in number the community resources available to the average user, but doing so in an organized way. -nw UPDATE: Branches adjusted.
