    Couple of stone cold absolute no brainer questions regarding the gclauncher & Mios patcher....

    1) Can you uninstall/unpatch the Mios? If so using which app etc?

    2) Would peeps reccomend a wad file launcher or via HBC? If so why?

    Cheers in advance folks smile.gif Thankyouplease!

    1) To uninstall the cMIOS just install the MIOS of your choice in wad form via WAD Manager. v4 might be a good choice, all gamecube games should work fine with it and action replay should have no problems with it too.
    2) I don't know if there is even a difference. I thought if you launch it via the disc channel it loads the gclauncher inside the MIOS, which should result in exactly the same loading as with the loader directly. I don't think you get the GREAT compatibily increase you get for Wii games with cioscorp if you launch gamecube backups via the disc channel.

    ive got a n00bish question as well. i know that in CMIOS the "C" is for custom and the "IOS" is for input output system, but what does the "M" stand for?

    IOS stands for Initial Operating System, not Input Output System.

    FUN FACT: A modem is called a modem because it MOdulates and DEModulates.
    So Modular Input/Output System might be right.

    Isn't MIOS IOS257 or 254?

    254 is patchmii and 257 is non existant. if you know an bit of programming you would konw that a byte is the numbers 0-255. obviously the ammount of ios slots in the wii is in a byte meaing there is no ios 257. and i suck at explaining things i know
