    Forgive my noobness, I searched this site but still am unsure about this.

    What is the difference between the CIOS_Installer.dol application and the cios_fix.wad?

    At the end of the day, is the end result the same, meaning the installation of cIOS36_rev7 on the system?

    BIG MOEs gamma installer and DJTAZ's gamma installer both have the cios_fix.wad AND the cIOS_Installer.dol application.

    What is the difference, and under what circumstances should one or the other be used?

    Thank you.

    I'm going to clear this once again !! Cios_fix is used in preparing your Wii to downgrade from 3.3 and 3.4 so you can freely hack the crap out of it , and it installs under IOS249 [​IMG]
    Cios36_rev7 is made by waninkoko and have the Gamma and homebrew support and it's used after your Wii is hacked and ready to run homebrew and loaders on it [​IMG]
    regardless how and from what do you install it each coder or compiler have his own preferred way and style , so it's up to you to see what are you comfortable with [​IMG] good luck

    The difference is the revision number, for backup launching you want rev7 (the latest cIOS installer) and for whatever you can use the rev5 (cios_fix) too.
