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?

Bletotum

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 user this with any disc.
