Riivolution is an on-the-fly game patcher for use with retail discs. It allows users to place content on their SD or USB devices, which will be read by the game during regular play.

Riivolution can be used for custom textures, music, levels, memory patches, game translations, and more!


To install Riivolution, extract the apps folder from the download onto an SD card and run Riivolution from the Homebrew Channel. Bannerbomb, Letterbomb, or other game exploits can also be used.

Once Riivolution is installed, you will need some patches to start playing with! Check out the Patch Templates to start, or read the FAQ.
