    Here's the situation

    1. Softmodded the wii way back when using twilight to install back-up loaders

    2. Made a nand back up via bootmii. (regularly before risky installs)

    3. Reluctantly installed cIOScorp (for Rockband)

    4. Figured out other RB running methods, and restored nand from before cIOScorp.

    5. Now... my Wii recognizes backups from the Disc Channel

    So... my question is... can cIOScorp possibly effect my wii even though my wii was restored to a state before cIOScorp was installed? Or has some other hack made it possible for the disc channel to read back ups?

    I know for a fact, that I didnt restore a nand with cIOScorp on it. I didnt make a back-up after installing cIOScorp, since I knew it had bad feedback and didnt plan on keeping it installed.

    For clarification, can cIOScorp effect your wii in any way that cannot be reversed by a nand restore to a state before it was installed.

    no if it wasn't installed on the backup then it shouldn't be installed when you restore

    cIOSCORPS v1/v2 or the newer ones by dalettera will be wiped from your Wii if you really did restore a backup of your nand that truly did not have cIOSCORPS on it!

    it's the truth no way can it survive...
    if you want to just remove cioscorps just get the uninstaller...

    you probably haven't taken the disc out... try it... also cIOSCORP won't affect you in anyways... and btw... cIOSCORP has an uninstaller for the record...

    cIOSCORP is reversible.
    Using the cIOSCORP v3.x uninstaller will remove it.
    A NAND backup without cIOSCORP on it will remove it without question.

    If you restored to a NAND backup and still had cIOSCORP installed afterward, then that means that you had cIOSCORP installed when you made the NAND backup, meaning you put cIOSCORP into the NAND backup.

    If you want to remove cIOSCORP, just download and run the cIOSCORP v3.x Uninstaller.

    1:1 disc backups (or close enough) will often display the correct title and banner information on an unmodified disc channel. They just won't boot.

    Nope. The system menu IOS must be 'corped' to display in the disc channel.

    It DOES play them. lol.

    Thanks guys! My only option now is that some other hack lets me play back ups. I wonder what it was. lol. Maybe like priiloader or something.

    To display the name and banner in the disc channel the SystemMenu IOS only needs to have trucha.

    You probably installed an old version of CIOSCorp when you did the twilight hack way back when. If you followed a softmod guide then it'd probably have told you to install CIOSCorp.

    It won't read a dvd-r without something in IOS being patched. Preloader might be set to boot system menu with cios, or there might be a modchip.

    Um... did you read what I posted ?

    The system menu IOS only needs the trucha bug, either as an older version (so unpatched but containing the bug), or a patched newer version (N removed the trucha exploit).

    It doesn't require a dip patch to display the banner.

    Yes it does. It won't magically switch to dvd-video reading mode (required to read dvd-r discs) with just the trucha bug.

    i have my system menu IOS patched, and my disk channel cannot display the banner for a burned disk... i've only had this functionality when I (temporarily) has cioscorp installed

    tueidj is correct...I have a trucha'd IOS60 & 4.0, and I can't see my 1:1 elebits backup (only DVD backup I have).

    The DVD Video functions were never meant to be used once N decided to abandon the idea of adding movie playback, so a stock Nintendo IOS contains no code to support the commands.

    If he can still play backups after restore, he either has a chip that he doesn't know about, his backup never restored, or the backup was made post-CORPing.

    Regardless, just run UNCORP or the official uninstaller pack and be done with it.

    Actually it does - an app/game just has to have the correct flag set in its TMD, like DVDX.
