CleanRip is a Gamecube and Wii optical disc backup tool for the Nintendo Wii.

The "Clean" in CleanRip comes from the fact that this tool does not require nor utilize any custom IOS (cIOS). It simply requires that you have the latest Homebrew Channel (HBC) installed. Also, if it finds that IOS58 is installed, you will be able to rip discs at USB 2.0 speeds.


Extract the .zip archive to your card and run it via the Homebrew Channel. Follow the on-screen instructions.

Issues with modchips

When dumping GC Games, if you have a Wiikey/Modchip installed, make sure region patching is turned off, especially the "Full GC Regionfree" feature that Wiikey has as it will produce bad rips.

BCA dumping goes along the same lines, some modchips will not return the actual data. I'll investigate this in the future.
