    I have had a modded Wii for ages...I mean, pretty much since the Twilight exploit was available, I have had a softmodded Wii.

    I understand everything, for the most part. I have a giant library of games now.

    I never update my c IOS until I notice a game won't run. Then, I come here and read about wtf is wrong, and usually end up finding out its a problem with that. I have only bothered doing it with a few games...because I'm not sure what the hell it is I'm doing.

    What are the differences between different peoples c IOS'? Is there a certain release I should be waiting for, and always installing?

    What exactly IS it? I know people say to "use empty ones"...but, how do I know? Does it say when I'm installing them somewhere? I mean, if I have already installed some, can I screw up by writing over them with another?

    If someone could explain it in idiots terms, I'd really, really appreciate it.

    cIOS is custom IOS. it is a copy of a official IOS but it has added stuff in it to be able to do different things (read DVDr and USB 2.0, etc). but you would be stupid to install it in place of the official IOS, so it is put in a different slot. 249, 250, 202, 222, 223 are popular. if you installed the latest cIOS before this year, you wont have any USB loading shit in it. there is not really a need to uninstall one unless you are just trying to clean up your wii. installing a different one overwrites whatever is already in the slot you are trying to use. so you can only have 1 version of 249.

    Thanks! That really answered most of my questions in one post lol.

    The only other question I have, is what are the differences between different releases? As in, how do I know which IOS I will need to play the newest games? Is there a specific release I should keep an eye out for?

    Thanks again!

    249 and 222 can be used to play most games from dvdr and usb if you are using a decent loader and the right settings. 249 is currently at rev14 and 222 is at rev4. you cant use any nand emu app unless you have sneek or ios249 rev 14. just find one of the 50000 guides floating abound for links and troubleshooting.

    The only thing I'm really concerned with is playing games from DVDr's.

    Thanks!

    I am sorta in the same boat as Oisterboy. I get most things that are discussed here, but the cIOS have always confused me. Is there a way to find out what cIOS and even IOS that are currently installed on your Wii?

    I think I know the answer to this, but I have cIOS38 rev 14...is that the same as 249 rev 14?

    1. Use sysCheck, signCheck, IOSCheck or Title Lister. The first two will create a *.csv file on the SD root, with the list of IOS that your console has.
    2. Yep. When someone talks about an "IOS 249", is reffering to the Waninkoko's cIOS, as it installs itself on the slot 249, [​IMG].

    I installed cIOS_r14 (wich installs in slot 250 and 249), then thru .wad file the cIOS_r9 (slot 249), and then Hermes's cIOS...both (slots 222 and 223), so I have:


    IOS250 = Wanin's cIOS_r14
    IOS249 = Wanin's cIOS_r9
    IOS223 = Hermes's 38 merged with 37 rev4
    IOS222 = Hermes's normal rev4

    nost games run with IOS249, some require IOS250 (don't really know the reason, but mostly JAP games), all the GuitarHero and RockBand require the IOS223 obligatory (also CoD: MW) and the IOS222 I have never used it...!! [​IMG]

    Guess I just had a bad ISO, because I still can't get damn Lego Rockband to run rofl.

    BTW, I installed 222, how do I get NeoGamma to use 222 instead of 249?

    So if I am playing CoD: MW Reflux, does that mean that I have IOS222? And what does Hermes's 38 merged with 37 rev 4 do?
