I've always had trouble understanding just how AHBPROT works and what it allows you to do (everybody just says "direct hardware access", but that's hardly a detailed description). I've done lots of searching but I can't find that much info on it. This post gave me some info on AHBPROT, but not in comparison to a cIOS. Up until now my stupid pride has prevented me from asking this. Can enabling AHBPROT let you do things that you can't with a cIOS? Does AHBPROT have all the benefits of a cIOS? Do you have to write code for specific "cIOS patch equivalents" (nand, trucha, es_identify, etc.), or do you get all the benefits once you enable AHBPROT? Edit: I forgot to mention that I'm not counting backup loading or USB2.0 in this comparison.
