    Nintendo Wii Gecko 1.8 is Now Available


    Brkirch has just released Gecko 1.8, the successor to the Gecko OS.

    This unofficial build has been approved by the people responsible for the USB Gecko Nintendo Wii hacking/cheat code device. It has a lot of new features and a new GUI.

    The Gecko homebrew application can be used without the USB Gecko hardware, but you're limited to only using it's various non-integrated features. However, the features available are worth using including cheat code support, region free gaming and much more!

    Download: http://www.usbgecko.com/Gecko18.zip

    What's New?

    - Multidol games work through Gecko's game loader, rebooter is no longer required for them
    - To ensure games are fully functional the game loader now uses the IOS requested by the game (as a result there is no 002 error, that error is due to game loaders booting a game with the wrong IOS)
    - If a game requests an IOS that you don't have, the game's update partition will be searched for the IOS and the option to install the IOS will be given if it is found (if you have a modchip, turn off update blocking!)
    - It is now possible to select not to load the debugger, which increases the number of code lines allowed by Ocarina
    - New hooks have been added so that most (if not all) Wii games can be hooked
    - Rebooter will use the hook selected on the config menu to hook games
    - Rebooter is now compatible with preloader
    - The menu interface has been improved, and you can load a custom background by creating a 640x480 PNG-24 file, naming it background.png, and putting it at the root of your SD card
    - The menu configuration can be saved, and the saved configuration will be loaded automatically when Gecko starts
    - A configuration file can be created for game specific settings like hook type
    - New code types are supported by the code handler
    - GPF (gecko patch file) support

    Gecko v1.8.0.2 Released

    Try this update version.

    brkirch has released a new version of his version of Gecko OS a Nintendo Wii hacking accessory. Using Gecko OS by itself you can boot imports and use cheat codes. However, if you use it along with the USB Gecko you can hack your own codes and have access to enhanced debugging features.

    What's New?

    * GC memory card crash fixed thanks to Nuke
    * A core dump that occurs on some Wiis when launching certain games should no longer occur
    * Fixed code list start for gameconfig.txt
    * A minor Ocarina fix to ensure ASM insert codes will work properly
    * Exit no longer causes a core dump if Gecko was launched by a loader that lacks return to loader functionality (such as preloader); instead exit returns to the Homebrew Channel, or resets the Wii if the Homebrew Channel is not installed

    Gecko v1.9 Released

    brkirch has released a new version of Gecko a Nintendo Wii operating System that allows you to use cheat codes in your games, boot imports in the video mode you select and use a new GPF patch for customizing your gaming experience. Gecko works by itself, but when combined with a USB Gecko allows you to "hack" your own games by creating your own codes, replacing textures, taking screen shots and a lot more.
    What's New?

    * Added channel loading with hooks, channel menu supports same database.txt format as AnyTitle Deleter MOD to replace the channel IDs with channel names (put database.txt at the root of the SD card)
    * Ocarina works on channels
    * ELF/DOL loading from geckoload now works
    * Optionally the directory data/gecko can contain the codes folder, patch folder, gameconfig.txt, config.dat, and background.png instead of the root of the SD card
    * GC memory cards are no longer detected as a USB Gecko
    * Changed how exit works; if a loader other than the homebrew channel was used (or an old version of the HBC) it will return to the system menu
    * Fixed a text overlapping bug that would happen if a disc error occurs and Ocarina is on
