    cIOS Clone Installer (patchmii port) with Korean Disc Support
    - rev07.0 by QLeap


    This readme basically written by tona from cIOS Clone installer rev05 , and
    modified by QLeap.


    This program will download IOS37 from the Nintendo update servers, patch it,
    and install it as IOS249--making a completely functional "clone" of
    Waninkoko's cIOS rev07 plus Korean Disc decoding support in any region Wii.
    This process does not involve any system-critical parts of the system, and
    should be completely safe. Of course, however, this software comes with no
    warranty whatsoever.
    Also, if this applications detects IOS249 installed, it will attempt
    uninstallation. So you can run it once to install, run it again to uninstall.
    Pretty simple.


    Waninkoko's cIOS patches are useful, but a couple of barriers prevent many
    people from installing it. One, the normal installer requires someone "find,"
    build, or dump a WAD of IOS36 or IOS37. Two, some people feel an aversion to
    Waninkoko's applications (on which I have no comment). Patchmii has been out
    for longer than cIOS, and it's perfect for the task. I finally found a use for
    cIOS and decided this might be useful in helping surmount the aforementioned


    This program based on IOS37 whilst rev07 uses IOS36, because of the Korean disc
    support. However, all of other patches are the same with cIOS rev07 with
    Waninkoko's including dip plugin. I have tested es modules, not dip modules.
    but dip module (especially dip plugin) is same with Waninkoko's job it should
    work. or you may fix if you can.


    Download Gecko OS 1.7b for cIOS version
    and install it with this cIOS.
    This Gecko OS will load cIOS and uses Korean Disc Decoding feature! enjoy it!

    This Gecko OS 1.7b for cIOS version is fixed for memory and heap overflow!!!

    Warning on inserting Korean Discs in other region Wii:

    If you insert Korean Discs on System Menu then launch any channel (disc channel,
    Shopping, Weather, News or Homebrew channel whatsoever), Wii will be locked up in
    black screen.
    This is not cIOS' problem. It's the way System Menu with IOS30 does in non Korean
    region Wii.
    If you starts System Menu with cIOS Korean Disc Support version with Menu Loader,
    it never shows black screen. So it's IOS30's problem because of no Korean Key.
    So please insert Korean Disc after launching Homebrews (HBC, GeckoOS and so on)
    if you have non Korean Wii.

    This can be fixed with modified version of AnyRegion Changer (version 1.1.1)
    , which can optionally install IOS 37 as IOS 30 with Korean Disc enabled. But
    note that this may cause full brick on your Wii!

    Does WAD manager work with this patchmii cIOS?
    With past versions (and also wiigators cIOS) it wouldn't.

    Is it known what IOS patches need to be made to support the functions of these programs?
