Just a quick post on my way to bed:
I did some hacking around, and was able to get amoxiflash to build under XP. I’ve posted a binary for Windows here: amoxiflash-win32-02. In order to run it, you will also need to install the libusb-win32 filter from here: libusb-win32 filter driver
Of course, the source is included there (for what I’m calling “Version v0.2″), and you can compile it under Mac OS X and Linux, too! I’ve tested it a bit under Windows, but I make no promises. On my MacBook Pro using VMWare and XP, it seems to run at about half speed under Windows as compared to natively under OS X. Ideas for improving the speed would be greatly appreciated.
Here’s the current usage info:
amoxiflash version 0.2, (c) 2008 bushing Usage: ./amoxiflash command -[tvwdf] [-b blocksize] filename -t test mode — do not erase or write -v verify every byte of written data -w wait for status after programming -f force: ignore safety checks. Dangerous! -d debug (enable debugging output) -b blocksize set blocksize; see docs for more info. Default: 0×2c0 -s blockno start block — skip this number of blocks before proceeding Valid commands are: check check ECC data in file strip strip ECC data from file dump read from flash chip and dump to file program compare file to flash contents, reprogram flash to match file
It seems to be a bit fragile under Windows — if you see something like this, then unplug the Infectus from your computer, power the Wii off, turn the Wii back on (shorting D0 while doing so), plug the USB cable back in, and try again:
Here’s what you want to see:
As always, the source is available in Subversion.
