    Of course they can. They are like ANY other title installed on the Wii.

    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.
