    without sounding too much of a noob, can someone please explain to me about cIOS and IOS and what they are? i've been doing what i need to to get things to work, but i'd like to know what im doing rather than do it blindly.

    and what is CIOScorp?

    Think of an IOS as the "operating system" of your Wii, like Microsoft Windows is to a PC. Probably the most simplistic way to describe it.

    A long while ago, there were some exploits in the IOS files, and these were used to run some Homebrew. However, Nintendo has patched a lot of these exploits, but, the cIOS came into effect, which, in short, is a "fake IOS" that mimics the glitched ones that were once patched.
