    Wii GameCube Homebrew Launcher v2.1 released by Hell Hibou (also creator of the Homebrew Launcher).
    Originally created by MegaMan.

    Allows you to boot gamecube homebrew through a patched MIOS. SD-boot should work too.

    MIOS hacking is very encouraging for the future of Gamecube Homebrew/Backups on wii!

    Is it really worth using this new version?

    Read the changelog and decide for yourself whether its worth updating.

    I'm hoping SD-boot will work better for me using this version.

    Gambia, The
    maybe this version doesn't lock up on my wii. the last version of the mios installer locked up right after start. like i said in this thread: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=108...t&p=1519859

    €dit: the mioswadinstaller wasn't changed at all in this version. so it still locks up on my wii...

    €dit2: haha. my wii didn't lock up. i had to press the a button on a gc controller connected to gc-pad-port 1... [​IMG]

    cmios is now installed and windwaker ntsc-u original still working like a charm. i don't have a sd gecko, so i can't try backups.

    €dit3: GCBooter homebrew is starting up and telling me that it failed to load start.dol form front sd. "failed to load .dol file." no idea why.

    Hi guys.
    I know i'm upping an old thread, and I beg your pardon for this, but I prefer to use an old topic concerning exactly what I'm about to ask, instead of creating a new one.
    Well, I softmodded my wii, and been playing good.
    But now I'm here, struggling to replay The Wind waker.
    I read that Softmodded Wii can't play GC backups at all, but now, reading the post upper mine, a new hope started.
    I guess the guy wasn't playing it with a modchipped Wii...Am i right?
    So, talking clear, is there a way to play on my softmodded Wii Zelda The Wind Waker?
    Thanks in advance guys
    B bye

    ATM, and AFAIK, no, there is no way to play GC backups on a softmodded Wii. You'll either need a chipped Wii or an original copy of TWW if you want to play it.

    There should be, but it's quite hard at the moment.

    If I understand correctly, you need Wii firmware 3.2 or lower (downgrade otherwise) and an SD Gecko (it's only a few dollars). Then you need to patch your MIOS (responsable for loading GameCube games), and you can run SDBoot from an SD-card, USB drive or SD Gecko. When it has loaded, you can run an GameCube ISO from the SD card in your SD Gecko.

    I've tried this before, and it didn't work for me. I might have been using PAL60, which would explain why it didn't work. When I have enough time I'll try this again.

    Well guys thanks to both of you.
    If I understand correctly, not only I need an sd, but that sd must be a Gecko one (still stranger to me).
    And then I need to patch my mios ( the corrispondent of the Cios, but for GC games, if I interpreted your message well), load the .Iso game on that sd, and boot it from there.

    Mmmm...Yeah, I think I'll wait your test. [​IMG]

    BTW, why the sd must be a gecko one?
    Sd devices are not all the same?

    Thanks again
