    Have heard of it on GC-forever :)
    Hope more of them to be available some when. I'd love to see the Wii and GCN hacking scene growing :)

    I am selling them on gc forever market place for £14 + p&p (£10 world, £8 EU) ebay kicked me off something about enabling copying of games, its a debug / hacking tool, I guess you can use it rip games but thats not how I use it.

    andre104623 over at gc forever has kind enough to do these wii game hacking videos using the shuriken unit and geckdotnet, cheers dude.

    Nice to see you here too :D
    Well, just have the Gecko plugged into Mem Card slot B before you turn on the Console (What I recommend) or as soon as Gecko OS is booted up. As soon as your Gecko sticks in slot B connect it to your computer via USB. Once Gecko OS is loaded open Gecko dNet what will send a boot up command to the Gecko to boot up the Game. You can also boot up the game manually and start Gecko dNet later

    Last time I talked to him he only had one left so most likely sold out. He will most likely make more but I can't say for sure

    May I ask why you need a original instead of getting one of these clones. That's a tempting offer you made. I'd almost sale you mine and buy a clone, I do have one but I'm not sure if I really want to sell it yet. If I was smart I would sell it before the bottom falls out of the price since the clones are starting to sell:cry:jk.

    Only small issue I have is even though I do mainly use GeckodotNet. I still frequently use the old outdated Wiird GUI which I think isn't open source and if I'm right isn't compatible with these clones. I normally switch between either program depending what I'm doing. But anyways If i do decide to sale I'll let you know, I'd also check ebay every once in a while cause seen one for sale on there awhile back.

    Don't worry about that. Gecko dNET is a bit better than WiiRdGUI (in my opinion) because it doesn't randomly freeze, it allows you to include a nice pointer searcher and the Filesystem manager allows you to modify loading routines what WiiRdGUI doesn't.
