Hi guys, i was wondering how to get ida pro 5.2 to work on wii .dol files. Do i need a specific plugin?

Thanks!

Whats ida pro?

Also, do you mean Wii .dol or Wii Homebrew .dol files? They're two entirely different things.

Thnaks for the answer..

Ida pro is a multiplatform interactive disassembler...

i need to disassemble a wii .dol file extracted from a wii game, in order to make have some fun :)

Thanks again.

My understanding of dissassemblers/hex editors is limited to if you just click file open ... any file in the entire world ... it will work. I'm not aware of any specific plugins, but if it doesn't work, let me know and I will look around. (Also let me know if you find anything interesting ;-) )

..ok my intention is to make a trainer the old way as i dont have a usbgecko (i used to be a Razor cracker looooong time ago), modifying the .dol file then putting it back using wiiscrubber.

I have very low knowledge of PPC, but im a ready for some studying. I cant figure out how to load main.dol in ida pro 5.2, as it does not recognize the format.

Any help is very much appreciated.

Thanks.

ok.. i figured out something.. load it as binary ppc.. do i have to use the makecode key on each address in order to display the disasm??? that's damn long!

Thank again..

Even if i dont think many ppl might be interested i got it to work by converting it to .elf :)

Thanks again

Actually, that is really interesting. What did you use to convert it to an .elf?

I used "Dol Tool 3". Search on google. I can post the link if you want.

Thanks.

... i was wondering something else...

what if, using this method, a buffer overflow hack or any other exploit IS created in a game in order to run something like the twilight hack or any arbitrary code?

Then nintendo could do nothing to fix this...if you have a modchip.. obviously..

Thanks..

Just my 2cents here, ida pro doesnt support the PPC architecture, its main uses is for windows programs and is used by crackers to find algorithms for serial keys, i have use ida pro for that purpose but only on testing apps not real copyrighted apps

SteelSLasher, the free 4.9 version of IDA Pro only supports PC x86. You must pay for the commercial $500 version for full processor support.(PPC, ARM, ect)

Reopened to point out that a DOL loading plugin won't help with IOS, and IOS had nothing to do with DOLs, so is completely pointless to be mentioned in this topic.

And...closed again.
