|This homebrew makes permanent changes to your Wii's flash memory (NAND) and should be used with caution.|
Launch Gamecube homebrew on Wii. Ensure that you read the documentation and understand what you are doing before using. This program modifies the MIOS and therefore can be dangerous.
DOL loader is patched into MIOS. If Wii switches to Gamecube mode, the DOL loader is always started. The loader will start Gamecube homebrew if loaded by GCBooterHomebrew. The loader launches the normal GC loader if no homebrew is detected. This behaviour can be disabled by reinstalling a normal MIOS via DOP-Mii.
- Copy RVL-mios-v5.wad.out.wad to root of SD card (This file is not included in the archive but is located on the Super Mario Galaxy (EU) disc, Mario Kart (EU), Super Smash Bros. Brawl (EU) and possibly other discs. It can also be downloaded using NUSD. Use a different version at your own risk. The MIOS patching wad installer will only allow to install MIOS. This can only break the GC mode. Loader should not patch any starlet code.)
- Patch MIOS using MIOSPatchingWADInstaller.
- Copy boot.dol from GCBooterHomebrew to SD root and rename it start.dol.
- Launch GCBooterHomebrew. This will start the the DOL on the SD card. If screen looks strange, you need to try it again. It is sometimes not working.
You can use Wii Homebrew Launcher to load GameCube homebrew. To do this, copy the EMULATOR directory at the root of the SD card and copy your homebrew in /EMULATOR/GCUBE/ROMS. In Wii Homebrew Launcher, go to Emulator channel, select 'GameCube Homebrew' channel and select the homebrew to load.
