Just a brief note to fulfill our promise about the MINI source code:
It’s available in a git repository now. Please note that everything in this repository (i.e. the full source code and the build utils) is licensed under the GNU GPL 2. This essentially means that you will also have to license all your changes under the same license. Binary only releases are not possible.
You will need to compile a new toolchain in order to be able to compile mini. Please take a look at the bootmii-utils repository and run the ‘buildit’ script. Make sure to create the WIIDEV environment variable which will point to the target directory for this new toolchain before doing this.
Install and launch BootMii (either as boot2 or as IOS) and copy mini to your SD card as /bootmii/armboot.bin in order to run it. This may break the PowerPC GUI (aka “ceiling cat”) though. You can also compile and use the “bootmii” gecko uploader if you own a USB Gecko. Source code for the PowerPC part is not included yet but we will add an example PowerPC project during the next few days.
Please send patches to email@example.com or contact anyone of us in IRC (#wiidev, #bootmii or #hackmii on EFNet). It would be great if we could manage this all in one repository instead of having thousands of forks with different features.
