    Hey all,

    Well, I'm on fire [​IMG]. I recently received my sample of the USBgecko 3d party developement unit and started playing around with it (and made PCB shots [​IMG]).

    Cheers and happy reading!

    Nice review! So this thing allows me to boot GC homebrew and dump Wii games without any modchip? Kewl! If this thing becomes good with the new firmware and such I'll definately buy it!

    It might however that will need the DVD which still needs to be released/produced by the USBgecko team.

    [​IMG] As far as I can see, viper gc extreme owners have no need for this.

    Edit, never post from a 3g connection again

    Well I don't remember the Viper Extreme having any low level tools or memory card tools. Then again I haven't used the viper for much else then run homebrew [​IMG]. Also of course dumping via USB has its advantages such as no longer swapping SD cards (but I had a 2Gb SD card so I didn't have to swap to begin with).

    Viper has all those features, including screenshot.

    It also has game streaming over USB.

    Yeah. For dumping games. Very handy in helping me backup my GC collection.

    No, I meant for playing games without burning them.

    Nice review. The only thing I'd add to it are some pics of it sticking out of a Wii or GC.

    I proofed that =D

    I see you clarified screenshots only. That's unfortunate, but is what I expected.

    Good job, Scorpei. Shall you need help, I will be there... give or take a few months... LOL.
