I'm still working on a Code-Manager for the Ocarina codes and so I would like to ask if there is a function to boot an elf/dol file from my homebrew? ->in this case the ocarina tool...

thx for your help:)

Is Wii Load what you need?

You might want to look at geckoload or the SD loader or something, but you basically just load code sections from an elf/dol to the correct section of memory and execute the Entry Point.

The DOL format is explained here: [hitmen.c02.at]
And ELF is standard. But, like I said, I'd look to the source of some other elf/dol loading applications.

Yes, look at the ancient geckoloader or the not-quite-so-ancient-but-still-very-ancient sdelfload (I think one version can run .dol...)
