    Sooo, its been a long time since I have kept track of the WiiBrew Scene. The last thing I remember was they just unlocked the DVD Drive in the Wii to read regular DVDs just fine. I have IOS5 and IOS37 (custom I think) installed and the DVD Dumper that streams over WiFi. So, do I need to update anything? I just downloaded CIOS36 Rev7 and CIOS37 Rev3. What do both of these do, and do they affect me at all?

    Is there anything else I should know thats new?

    Thanks guys!

    if you want to read backups, then you just need cIOS v7, which overwrites the non-existing IOS 249.
    Pretty much a cIOS is a custom IOS designed to modify the wii operating system and give the user an advantage.
