    Just wondering if someone can explain cIOS's do you have multiple cIOS's on the system at once as I have installed a few or when you install a cIOS does it overwrite any other cIOS's on the system? also is there an application to show which cIOS's are installed on the system and can this be checked through HBC app?

    Every IOS and cIOS is installed to a specific IOS slot. You can have only 1 IOS per slot at each time. If you have already an IOS249(standard slot for cIOS, all of Waninkoko's cIOS are installed here), and then you install another IOS that uses the IOS249 slot, it overwrites the other one.

    You can check which IOS/cIOS are installed with various applications, for example SoftChip or some title lister.

    All it says is IOS 249 (Rev 10) Loaded

    Not sure where the other info is?

    Homebrew channel info at the top says IOS61 v19.26 so a bit confused really.

    Anytitle Deleter has a section on installed IOSes (and allows one to delete them so be careful!).

    I asked the same thing once. Try to find a homebrew app called AnyTitle Lister.
