    Hi all,

    Having tried to play MadWorld via GeckoOS last night and getting the #002 error - I realised I don't have the 002 fix for GeckoOS. I downloaded it and now everything is fine.

    However, I currently have a GeckoOS channel (with a non #002 fixed version of the .dol file). Is it possible to replace the boot.dol in this channel's wad with the 002 fixed version ? Something like injectuwad IIRC ?

    Alternatively, does anyone have GeckoOS #002 fix channel or the link to the 'channel' that lets you create a channel for any boot.dol ?

    TIA for any help.

    Regards,

    Adam Brunt

    Generally you will find the main .dol in a wad is simply the 00000001.app, so just rename your dol to 00000001.app and replace it in an unpacked wad and repack.

    Thanks for that, stev418.

    Next question, what app do you use to unpack and pack wads ?

    I'll take a look at that.

    The screenshot on the first page shows N64 roms, presumably I just select the boot.dol in the left hand window and my current GeckoOS wad in the right hand window and hit Start ?

    Also, is common-key.bin just renamed version of key.bin ?

    There are some options on *N64*. Just click on it and choose homebrew

    This lack of searching is becoming rediculous.
