    My understanding was that there was no proper method to uninstall IOS (custom at least), not that it was impossible.

    Unencrypted DVD reads are no longer byte limited. I assume he also found a way to enable the DVD drive with emulators. If this keeps up, we might see an ISO launcher in about two weeks.

    Apparently so, but only for homebrew.


    I would test it... but finding IOS37-64-v2070.wad is proving to be difficult.

    I've installed/uninstalled IOS files with WAD Manager. The route is "00000001"(same as the System Menu and other important garbage), as you might know, and WAD Manager can deal with that perfectly.
