    I have a 4.1U with cIOScorp 3.6 installed and I was wondering if it was safe to install the 4.2 system menu .wad without messing up any of my softmodding. IOS 70 was already installed via cIOScorp and I have all the latest ios. What exactly will the stystem menu.wad overwrite?

    The system menu wad will overwrite your system menu

    Why bother with System Menu 4.2 if 4.1 works? 4.2 has absolutely no new features over 4.1.

    Gee thanks for the helpful answer. The only reason I want to go to 4.2 is because there are some hacks in the 4.2U hacks.ini for priiloader that I want to use and I cant seem to port them right for 4.1. I figured if it was as simple as just installing the wad then there wasnty any harm. Thats why I wanted to know what exactly I was gonna lose before I did it.

    you'd lose the old haxx homebrew channel mainly, but if you have the current version (JODI), then this won't be an issue. But as Dialexio said, 4.2 offers no functionality over 4.1.

    How do I know which one I have?


    Edit - I have the JODI channel, i checked in ATD.



    So as it stands, I wouldnt lose anything if I upgraded?

    If you have the old DVDX (hidden channel with the title "DVDX"), that will get deleted too. It's probably not a big deal, though. The newer one uses the ID "DISC".

    Does the 4.2 overwrite any of cIOScorp?
