SysCheck HacksDen Edition is a homebrew application which runs several checks on your Wii's installed IOS and cIOS. It returns a report which can be used for troubleshooting.
The author can not be held responsible for any damages SysCheck might cause!


The utility SysCheck HacksDen Edition runs the here listed checks on your installed IOS and cIOS:

  • Base IOS Detection
  • vIOS Detection
  • Beer Ticket
  • IOS Stub
  • Fake Signature (aka Trucha Bug)
  • ES_DiVerify (aka ES_Identify)
  • Flash Access
  • NAND Access
  • Boot2 Access
  • USB 2.0

SysCheck generates a report on the root of the SD card (sd:/sysCheck.csv). There is also an option to upload the report to the internet, on, for easier sharing.


SysCheck HacksDen Edition is a fork of SysCheck 2.0. It has several extra features and bug-fixes, including a much better support for the vWii.

  • Added support for DM/DML 2.7-2.10.
  • Added libruntimeiospatch v1.6.1.
