    For those of you following cSM development very closely, here is an update for you.

    As most of you know, lately I have had little to no time for my work, and development has slowed drastically. So drastically, that people are finally releasing things i've had under wraps since oct / nov. Digitydogs has begun to release a custom system menu of his own, changes that are mostly visual enhancements and personal customization of your wii, which are both well over-due.

    Dd and I have been discussing a teaming up and joining our projects into one nice shiny development for the scene, which has finally taken place.

    Dogs and I will be co-developing what we decided to call cSSM "custom styled system menu". This will allow me to focus my efforts on the coding and functionality aspects of the system menu where-as he can continue remastering the system menu graphically. Now the best of both worlds can be found together.

    cSSM will be using the webspace already setup for cSM (written by djtaz in notepad...."real men use notepad" big thanks to him) that includes forums / chatrooms / blogs / downloads among the ability to update cSSM directly from your system menu as it will be redirected to my domain.

    Stay tuned for more updates, things should start rolling along steadily now.

    Fors & Diggles.

    We've made some of our greatest progression by working as a team. I'm glad to hear of your open minded, selfless attitude that is so lacking elsewhere. I think just about everyone here will be glad to hear this and look forward to trying CCSM out.

    All the best, guys!

    ah awesome.
    this is gonna be pretty confusing when it comes out i guess. things like softmii and such i mean, this is only system MENU stuff you're talkin right?

    no need for un-installation of softmii, preloader, blah blah blah. just worried that i wont be able to get my head around it [​IMG]

    You really need to know where are you standed to try other stuff, otherwise you'll brick, read more and find out what's installed on your system, once you know that the rest is piece of cake...!!! [​IMG]

    Its actually a complete solution, thats better than preloader / softmii etc. I know a lot of people have spouted the term "complete solution" but they had all put together more or less a package of released tools and a guide.

    This is straight from the coders.

    My Dashboard is just that, a system menu dashboard. a menu of sorts for recovery, sym installation, downgrading, dol/elf booting, title booting, etc. It has been in development and announced far before preloader was written, but due to my lack of time developing its still not out yet.

    No system menu modification will be compatible (for the most part, im sure some will depending on what they do) but there is also no need to worry because cSSM will have every functionality out there, and some I havent released yet. It will also be safer, and contains many more visual customization options than previously seen, as well as direct updating from your wii as the wii's update functions are redirected to my domain instead of nintendo.

    Essentially, why release something that isnt better than what's already out there? You won't be disappointed.
