NEW WII UPDATE – Minor Update

Nintendo has just released a minor update for the Wii. This update will install the Korean IOSs (IOS4x) on Wiis from all regions, preventing TBR from working correctly. The shopping channel has also been updated to use IOS56 instead of IOS61. No other changes have been found in the update.

Nintendo Update DS/DSI/DSXL Blocks Flashcards

Nintendo has just blocked flashards on the DSi yet again with the release of firmware update 1.4.1 today. However, it does not seem like all flashcards have been affected.

Nintendo’s system menu update page says the new firmware provides “behind-the-scenes improvements”, but as expected that is really just PR speak for “no more homebrew for you”. This is the first incremental update for the DSi in over a year, yet it is not believed there are any new features for the DSi outside of flashcards being blocked.

Several GBAtemp users have updated and tested their flashcards and ended up with a black screen that tells them to turn off the power. The Supercard DSTwo and Acekard 2i are confirmed to be blocked, but resident AKAIO developer and flashcard wizz Normmatt says the EZ-Flash Vi and iSmartDS have not been blocked. They will keep a list of confirmed flashcards.

For now, steer clear of the update if you want to keep using your flashcard!

Blocked:

Acekard 2i
Supercard DSTwo
M3i Zero
iPlayer
DSTTi

Unblocked:

EZ-Flash Vi
iSmart DS
Hyper R4i

COMPLETE README

DIRECT DOWNLOAD HERE

NeoGamma is a modification of WiiGator’s Gamma backup loader, see “old readme.txt”
FILEPATHS:
Ocarina codes: “NeoGamma/codes” or “codes”
gameconfig.txt: “NeoGamma/gameconfig.txt” or “gameconfig.txt” or “codes/gameconfig.txt”
.dols: “NeoGamma” (either 4 or 6 digits of the disc id)
Patches(.wip files): “NeoGamma” (either 4 or 6 digits of the disc id)
Menu files(.wdm files): “NeoGamma” (either 3, 4 or 6 digits of the disc id)
Config file: (sd card only) “NeoGamma/NeoGamma.cfg”
PROBLEMS PLAYING A CERTAIN GAME?
Try the following options:
Hooktype: none
Ocarina: no
Alternative .dol: disc+
Boot language: Console Default (2nd test on import games: one language used in the game)
Force Video: Disc
Patch Video: no
VIDTV Patch: no
Patch Country Strings: no (3rd test on import games: yes)
If you play from sd or usb, insert a disc.
If the game does not work with this, the game is not compatible or an IOS Reloading game, or it’s a cIOS, media or new unknown problem.
If you get either color issues or a green screen freeze(with video mode != Disc), try different combinations of Force Video, Patch Video and VIDTV. Note that this issue can’t be fixed in lots of games.
PROBLEMS WITH OCARINA?
Try the different hooktypes.
PROBLEMS WITH USB LOADING?
*New possible fix*
Insert any usb device in the top port while the HDD is inserted in the bottom port.
– NeoGamma is not able to load games from usb with rev12(maybe rev11 does not work too) of Waninkoko’s cIOS
– Make sure you are using the bottom usb port, the top one won’t work for HDDs from cIOSrev12 on.
– Also if you have WiiConnect24 enabled, test what happens if you disable it.
– If you have an IDE HDD, try both master and slave jumper settings(experts only!, very low chance to change something)
Try starting the loader after the HDD was connected and powered
Try starting the loader, connect and power the HD, and then selecct mount WBFS
Try starting the loader, select mount WBFS, connect the HDD, and then power it
Try starting the loader, select mount WBFS, power the HDD, and then connect it
Try starting the loader, select mount WBFS, wait until tries left 20, connect the HDD, and then power it
Try starting the loader, select mount WBFS, wait until tries left 20, power the HDD, and then connect it
If all this does not help, get:
http://wiibrew.org/wiki/GeeXboX
start something from the HDD with it(requires 2 partitons, 1 wbfs and 1 other),
don’t do anything to the HDD, do not unplug,
exit to HBC, start NeoGamma and try to connect.
If GeeXboX is the only way for you to get your HDD working, please get in contact with the people at irc://irc.freenode.org/cIOS or me
And if even this does not work, try to get 2 partitions on the HDD:
1. FAT32 or NTFS
2. WBFS
And then try again, maybe try the GeeXboX trick again.
OPTIONS:
Hook Type:
ONLY ENABLE IF YOU NEED IT! Required for debugging and Ocarina, the different option can differently reduce game compatibilty.
Ocarina:
ONLY ENABLE IF YOU NEED IT! You can select which IOS to use to load the code file from storage.(only, if at all, required for sdhc cards)
Alternative .dol:
ONLY ENABLE IF YOU NEED IT! “Disc” searches the disc for .dols and let’s you select which one to load then. It should be ovious that only using a .dol different from the main.dol makes sense here. “Storage” load a .dol from sd or usb storage instead of loading the main.dol from disc. The .dol has to be in the folder ‘NeoGamma’ and the name has to be the first 6(or 4) characters of the disc id.
Boot Language:
Option which language to force. “Console Default” forces nothing, “Auto Force” forces english on NTSC-U games, and japanese on NTSC-J games. Forcing the language of the disc is required for some import games.
Force Video:
Option which video mode to use. “Disc” is the default and DOES NOT force anything and is THE option that works. “Wii” forces the video mode set in the Wii settings.
Patch Video:
ONLY ENABLE IF YOU NEED IT! Patches the video mode(s) inside the main.dol to the video mode the game will be started with. This makes more import games playable with “correct” colors.
VIDTV Patch:
ONLY ENABLE IF YOU NEED IT! ??? Something video related.
Patch Country Strings:
ONLY ENABLE IF YOU NEED IT! Required for some import games, mostly people with japanese Wiis need this.
Storage device:
Defines which storage device is used for Ocarina, alternative .dol loading and .wip patches
Search patches:
Enables looking for .wip patch files in the NeoGamma folder on the selected storage device.
Gamecube Mode:
‘MIOS’ is the old behavior, it just starts the MIOS if a GC disc is inserted. ‘internal’ starts the included GC Backup Launcher from WiiGator(requires compatible cMIOS). ‘external’ starts an GC homebrew .dol from storage
WHICH cIOS TO USE:
Rev 19:
– allows using different IOS as base to fix games which require this
– Decrypted discs only work if IOS38 was used as base IOS. 1:1 discs should work fine
Seems to be the best cIOS so far(commendation #1)
Rev 18:
– allows using different IOS as base to fix games which require this
– sd/sdhc loading broken
– Can’t play games with disc-in-the-drive-check games like Metroid Prime 3
– Decrypted discs only work if IOS38 was used as base IOS. 1:1 discs should work fine
Rev 17:
– contains BCA code
– Rebooter status unknown, may be broken, maybe not
– Same issues as with all other revisions: No instruments, no Monster Hunter Tri, possible online issues…
– DL minor bug, doesn’t load the very last sector of DL discs, no reported problems because of this
Seems to be a good and stable cIOS(commendation #2)
Rev 16:
– Not compatbile with NeoGamma at all
– Same DL bug as rev14
– Maybe more issues, don’t care
Rev 15:
– Not compatible with the disc channel(rebooter)
– Not compatible with NeoGamma
Rev 14:
– Not compatible with dual layer games, Super Smash Brothers Brawl DVD9 version is affected, DVD5 version works
– Some accessories don’t work
– Maybe not compatible with some HDD enclosures that work on rev9/10 (issue with one of these would be: can’t get HDD detected or can’t start any games)
– Maybe not compatible with HDDs that spin down(only 1 report), but all other cIOS from Waninkoko are affected by this as well, issues are freezes in the middle of games
– Maybe muliplayer issues (strange reports, works for some people and for others it doesn’t)
Heavily tested, no bigger issues other than the above reported(commendation #3)
Rev 13b:
– Plays most if not all games(but some accessories don’t work)
– Improper 001 handling(main.dol patch)
– Improper 002 handling(main.dol patch)
– Improper patch to play games from usb without disc
– cIOS is not compatible with the disc channel.
Rev 13a:
– Plays most if not all games(but some accessories don’t work)
– Improper 001 handling(main.dol patch)
– Improper patch to play games from usb without disc
– cIOS is not compatible with the disc channel.
Heavily tested, no bigger issues other than the above reported(commendation #4)
Rev 12:
– Totally broken 001 handling.
– Improper 002 handling(main.dol patch)
– Slower than the other usb cIOS.
– Improper patch to play games from usb without disc
– cIOS is not compatible with the disc channel.
Rev 11:
not tested! But it’s the following is known:
–  1st cIOS that works on boot2v4/LU64+ Wiis
– Improper 001 handling(main.dol patch or totally broken one)
– Improper 002 handling(main.dol patch)
– cIOS is not compatible with the disc channel.
Rev 10:
– 1st cIOS with sd loading support.
– Improper 001 handling(main.dol patch)
– Improper 002 handling(main.dol patch)
– cIOS is not compatible with the disc channel.
Rev 9:
– 1st cIOS with usb loading support.
– Improper 001 handling(main.dol patch)
– Improper 002 handling(main.dol patch)
– cIOS is not compatible with the disc channel.
Rev 8:
– Improper 001 handling(main.dol patch)
– Improper 002 handling(main.dol patch)
Rev 7:
– No dual layer support, the 2nd layer is just not accessible. Most if not all other games should work from disc.
No usb loading and no DL, but works fine(commendation #5)
Rev 6:
– No dual layer support
– “an error occured” on half games.
Rev 5:
– No dual layer support
– only support for decrypted discs.
On top of all this there are differences in HDD and accessoire compatiblity between the different usb loading cIOS.

– Auto Force Language option added, it forces english for games with region ‘E'(NTSC-U) and japanese for games with region ‘J’
– Moved memory stuff before the apploader. Now Red Steel and SSX should be working. (they still (try to) load their IOS themselves)
– Writes the Game ID Address(0x80000000) now into the memory at 0x80003184. Now Sam & Max and FarCry should be working. (they still (try to) load their IOS themselves)
– Save configuration to sd card
– Added Country String Patching (mostly helpful for japanese users with US and PAL games)
– Load Ocarina from SDHC and USB(when encountering problems, try the different strange options, using IOS61 is only compatible if NeoGamma was compiled with a libogc compatible with it like libogc SVN)
– Added option to patch video modes
– Added video modes that can be forced(MPAL) / Changed to use slightly different video modes
– Fake IOS Version in memory (this removes the 002 error)
– Changed to Graphics by: xabarasx
– Added SD/USB Loading
WiiPower

NeoGamma is a modification of WiiGator’s Gamma backup loader, see “old readme.txt”

FILEPATHS:
Ocarina codes: “NeoGamma/codes” or “codes” gameconfig.txt: “NeoGamma/gameconfig.txt” or “gameconfig.txt” or “codes/gameconfig.txt”.dols: “NeoGamma” (either 4 or 6 digits of the disc id)Patches(.wip files): “NeoGamma” (either 4 or 6 digits of the disc id)Menu files(.wdm files): “NeoGamma” (either 3, 4 or 6 digits of the disc id)Config file: (sd card only) “NeoGamma/NeoGamma.cfg”

PROBLEMS PLAYING A CERTAIN GAME?
Try the following options:Hooktype: noneOcarina: noAlternative .dol: disc+Boot language: Console Default (2nd test on import games: one language used in the game)Force Video: DiscPatch Video: noVIDTV Patch: noPatch Country Strings: no (3rd test on import games: yes)
If you play from sd or usb, insert a disc.
If the game does not work with this, the game is not compatible or an IOS Reloading game, or it’s a cIOS, media or new unknown problem.
If you get either color issues or a green screen freeze(with video mode != Disc), try different combinations of Force Video, Patch Video and VIDTV. Note that this issue can’t be fixed in lots of games.

PROBLEMS WITH OCARINA?
Try the different hooktypes.

PROBLEMS WITH USB LOADING?
*New possible fix*Insert any usb device in the top port while the HDD is inserted in the bottom port.
– NeoGamma is not able to load games from usb with rev12(maybe rev11 does not work too) of Waninkoko’s cIOS- Make sure you are using the bottom usb port, the top one won’t work for HDDs from cIOSrev12 on.- Also if you have WiiConnect24 enabled, test what happens if you disable it.- If you have an IDE HDD, try both master and slave jumper settings(experts only!, very low chance to change something)
Try starting the loader after the HDD was connected and poweredTry starting the loader, connect and power the HD, and then selecct mount WBFSTry starting the loader, select mount WBFS, connect the HDD, and then power itTry starting the loader, select mount WBFS, power the HDD, and then connect itTry starting the loader, select mount WBFS, wait until tries left 20, connect the HDD, and then power itTry starting the loader, select mount WBFS, wait until tries left 20, power the HDD, and then connect it
If all this does not help, get:http://wiibrew.org/wiki/GeeXboXstart something from the HDD with it(requires 2 partitons, 1 wbfs and 1 other),don’t do anything to the HDD, do not unplug,exit to HBC, start NeoGamma and try to connect.
If GeeXboX is the only way for you to get your HDD working, please get in contact with the people at irc://irc.freenode.org/cIOS or me
And if even this does not work, try to get 2 partitions on the HDD:1. FAT32 or NTFS2. WBFS
And then try again, maybe try the GeeXboX trick again.

OPTIONS:
Hook Type:ONLY ENABLE IF YOU NEED IT! Required for debugging and Ocarina, the different option can differently reduce game compatibilty.
Ocarina:ONLY ENABLE IF YOU NEED IT! You can select which IOS to use to load the code file from storage.(only, if at all, required for sdhc cards)
Alternative .dol:ONLY ENABLE IF YOU NEED IT! “Disc” searches the disc for .dols and let’s you select which one to load then. It should be ovious that only using a .dol different from the main.dol makes sense here. “Storage” load a .dol from sd or usb storage instead of loading the main.dol from disc. The .dol has to be in the folder ‘NeoGamma’ and the name has to be the first 6(or 4) characters of the disc id.
Boot Language:Option which language to force. “Console Default” forces nothing, “Auto Force” forces english on NTSC-U games, and japanese on NTSC-J games. Forcing the language of the disc is required for some import games.
Force Video:Option which video mode to use. “Disc” is the default and DOES NOT force anything and is THE option that works. “Wii” forces the video mode set in the Wii settings.
Patch Video:ONLY ENABLE IF YOU NEED IT! Patches the video mode(s) inside the main.dol to the video mode the game will be started with. This makes more import games playable with “correct” colors.
VIDTV Patch:ONLY ENABLE IF YOU NEED IT! ??? Something video related.
Patch Country Strings:ONLY ENABLE IF YOU NEED IT! Required for some import games, mostly people with japanese Wiis need this.
Storage device:Defines which storage device is used for Ocarina, alternative .dol loading and .wip patches
Search patches:Enables looking for .wip patch files in the NeoGamma folder on the selected storage device.
Gamecube Mode:’MIOS’ is the old behavior, it just starts the MIOS if a GC disc is inserted. ‘internal’ starts the included GC Backup Launcher from WiiGator(requires compatible cMIOS). ‘external’ starts an GC homebrew .dol from storage

WHICH cIOS TO USE:
Rev 19:- allows using different IOS as base to fix games which require this- Decrypted discs only work if IOS38 was used as base IOS. 1:1 discs should work fineSeems to be the best cIOS so far(commendation #1)
Rev 18:- allows using different IOS as base to fix games which require this- sd/sdhc loading broken- Can’t play games with disc-in-the-drive-check games like Metroid Prime 3- Decrypted discs only work if IOS38 was used as base IOS. 1:1 discs should work fine
Rev 17:- contains BCA code- Rebooter status unknown, may be broken, maybe not- Same issues as with all other revisions: No instruments, no Monster Hunter Tri, possible online issues…- DL minor bug, doesn’t load the very last sector of DL discs, no reported problems because of thisSeems to be a good and stable cIOS(commendation #2)
Rev 16:- Not compatbile with NeoGamma at all- Same DL bug as rev14- Maybe more issues, don’t care
Rev 15:- Not compatible with the disc channel(rebooter)- Not compatible with NeoGamma
Rev 14:- Not compatible with dual layer games, Super Smash Brothers Brawl DVD9 version is affected, DVD5 version works- Some accessories don’t work- Maybe not compatible with some HDD enclosures that work on rev9/10 (issue with one of these would be: can’t get HDD detected or can’t start any games)- Maybe not compatible with HDDs that spin down(only 1 report), but all other cIOS from Waninkoko are affected by this as well, issues are freezes in the middle of games- Maybe muliplayer issues (strange reports, works for some people and for others it doesn’t)Heavily tested, no bigger issues other than the above reported(commendation #3)
Rev 13b:- Plays most if not all games(but some accessories don’t work)- Improper 001 handling(main.dol patch)- Improper 002 handling(main.dol patch)- Improper patch to play games from usb without disc- cIOS is not compatible with the disc channel.
Rev 13a:- Plays most if not all games(but some accessories don’t work)- Improper 001 handling(main.dol patch)- Improper patch to play games from usb without disc- cIOS is not compatible with the disc channel.Heavily tested, no bigger issues other than the above reported(commendation #4)
Rev 12:- Totally broken 001 handling.- Improper 002 handling(main.dol patch)- Slower than the other usb cIOS.- Improper patch to play games from usb without disc- cIOS is not compatible with the disc channel.
Rev 11:not tested! But it’s the following is known:-  1st cIOS that works on boot2v4/LU64+ Wiis- Improper 001 handling(main.dol patch or totally broken one)- Improper 002 handling(main.dol patch)- cIOS is not compatible with the disc channel.
Rev 10:- 1st cIOS with sd loading support.- Improper 001 handling(main.dol patch)- Improper 002 handling(main.dol patch)- cIOS is not compatible with the disc channel.
Rev 9:- 1st cIOS with usb loading support.- Improper 001 handling(main.dol patch)- Improper 002 handling(main.dol patch)- cIOS is not compatible with the disc channel.
Rev 8:- Improper 001 handling(main.dol patch)- Improper 002 handling(main.dol patch)
Rev 7:- No dual layer support, the 2nd layer is just not accessible. Most if not all other games should work from disc.No usb loading and no DL, but works fine(commendation #5)
Rev 6:- No dual layer support- “an error occured” on half games.
Rev 5:- No dual layer support- only support for decrypted discs.
On top of all this there are differences in HDD and accessoire compatiblity between the different usb loading cIOS.

Rumour: Wii 2 to Feature Blu-ray Drive, Out Next Year

Last week, analyst Piers Harding-Rolls suggested a Wii 1.5 was on the way in 2012, but a new rumour points to a revamped machine on the waybefore 2011 is out.

According to Girl Gamers Suck, an anonymous “bashful but reliable source” inside Nintendo – get that salt  ready – has confirmed the machine will launch next year, with a Blu-ray drive for greater game storage and anti-piracy measures. Previous rumours that the machine would also feature 1080p output and a trade-in offer for existing Wii owners are neither confirmed nor denied: only the Blu-ray drive is claimed to be confirmed.

Of course, Nintendo putting in a Blu-ray drive without the ability to output at 1080p would make no sense, but then this isn’t the most believable rumour out there. The secondary objective of reducing piracy this late in the Wii’s lifespan is surely a case of closing the stable door long after the horse has bolted, but as we said this is a rumour until publicly confirmed by a Nintendo representative, which could take a long time.
