    A new version of IOS53 is included in the update partition of the New Super Mario Bros Wii game disc, and is intended to be installed to play the game (I don't think it causes crashing or anything if you don't have it, but don't quote me on that). At present there is no cIOS based off 53, although future releases of cIOSCORP may patch it further to improve compatibility with NSMB and other games.

    cIOS 249 rev14 is based on a patched version of IOS38. It is still the most recent cIOS249 release and should be fine to use.

    Maybe your modchip disabled disk updates protecting it from anti-chip/piracy software...

    It's uncommon to see an update screen nowadays because:

    1. If you got the game on the internet, you probably got the scrubbed version which contains only the game partition and ignores the update bits.
    2. Many modchips disable disc updates which can force you to update or restrict your ability to play.
    3. Most loaders ignore the update partition for the same reason.
    4. Many people disable disc update partitions in Preloader, which works even on store-bought discs.

    By glancing through the other threads, it seems that most (not all) people who didn't update IOS53 are still able to play NSMB. Try it and see if you need to.

    So if i want to play games like mario from the channel menu , i have to update my cios249 to ios53 with the trucha sign bug with the method : DOP-IOS

    OK you clearly didn't understand what was said about your cIOS. You have like 20 or so IOS's on your system. Not just one. Think of IOS's as kind of drivers for a computer. You need a bunch of different ones to do different things. IOS's are official things installed on your system from Nintendo when you do disc/system menu updates and such.

    cIOS's are an entirely different thing. Specifically Waninkoko's cIOS is the one that is generally installed to IOS249. As of rev14 of this cIOS, it takes the normal IOS38 from Nintendo's servers and patches it with the rev14 dip module and installs it to IOS249 along with a backup to IOS250.

    The update for IOS53 is just a normal update to the latest revision of that particular IOS on your system. It has nothing to do with any other IOS's or cIOS's. NSMB possibly may not even need it to be updated to play at all.

    If you want to play NSMB from the disc channel, get an original copy or wait for some way to do it to come out. (If something is already available, search for it yourself and figure out, cause I don't really care enough to find out myself).
