Ha.

That beats datel's. Bletotum

Source?

Would love to see source for this. I've been wanting to make a remote debugger sort of app like this has, but not using USB Gecko. Having this to refer to would really help. 198.166.12.229 21:21, 17 April 2008 (PDT)

It doesn't work with brawl

I load the game, and says "Please insert the Super Bros. Brawl Disc". PAL Launch Wii, US Brawl.

Would this work?

Would this 2 gb usb flash memory drive serve as a usb gecko?

No. A USB Gecko plugs into the Game Cube memory slot.Felix123 15:05, 18 April 2008 (PDT)

Support Question?

Some people on Tehskeen have been asking-- does it need a modchip, and can you boot backups with this?

You need a drivechip for copied games. You don't need a chip for original games. 130.237.152.216 20:09, 19 April 2008 (PDT)

Problems

I've tried it with two games now, and when the Wii restarts it just hangs on a blank screen, no sound, doesn't appear to be doing anything, even though the light is on. PAL Wii, latest version, Component cable @ 480p, SMG and LoZ:TP tried. Does it matter if I'm using games from my own region, as I don't have any imports?

Ignores update partition

Does this mean that Gecko Region Free cannot cause (semi-)bricked Wiis from discs that update firmware on the incorrect region of the Wii? If it's safe, I would probably be interested in using this to import some games... --Chungy 23:50, 26 May 2008 (PDT)

According to http://www.dcemu.co.uk/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=105323 it does ignore update partitions. So it is completely safe to use this with any disc. Niohubala 22:00 2 July 2008 (GMT +2)

GameCube?

Does this work with imported GameCube games? Also, since it can now be run from the HBC, does this mean it can be run off an SD card instead of the Gecko Loader?

It does not work with GC games. You can run it via the homebrew channel however you like; originally it didn't work with the Gecko Loader, only the TP hack. The Gecko in the name is a bit of a misnomer, it is just because it has more features (eg screenshots) with the USB Gecko. Muzer 21:15, 24 June 2008 (CEST)

Gecko OS

Should this be moved to Gecko OS? Felix 06:53, 28 June 2008 (CEST)
