    I used Pimp My Wii to get most of my CIOS files up to date. I noticed there was at least one I had to install separately. It got me thinking if there were other out of date CIOS on my Wii... but I wasn't really sure how to go about finding them. Is there a piece of homebrew that will list all CIOS on my Wii?

    Hope that makes sense. I'm a bit of a noob.

    Syscheck will do that.

    Not exactly, syscheck will only give you version numbers, while this is fine for wanin's it doesn't tell you which base is used, nor does it tell you what version of hermes is installed, as his are maxed out.

    I know config usb loader will tell you which rev/base for hermes and wanin's (it gets the base wrong sometimes, IE thinks it is 57 when it is 56). Neogamma will tell you which base (I think it used to have issues getting the version #, unless this has been added).

    But as far as a piece of homebrew just for that, no.

    sysCheck's as good as it gets for that. It can't tell you what base IOS you use or the version of Hermes' IOSes.

    And both those loaders do guessing, because there's no easy way to tell.

    Tried syscheck out, but it crashes midway through and never finishes.

    Hey thanks.

    Didn't realize there was a newer version, since I got it from wiibrew. But yeah 2.0 fixed my crashing problem.

    Here is the report I got back.

    Anything look out of place there?

    Thanks, a bunch [​IMG]

    I was told already never to delete any IOS. As far as the Trucha patch, I believe I used a piece of homebrew which patched the appropriate files(at the time I guess).

    Does having multiple IOS patched really matter?

    Also, I have a nand backup... so I am probably safe from bricking my wii, at least in the case of deleting IOS files.

    Then it's good time to make another NAND backup and store it safely with some checksums (just pack it with zip/rar).

    Hey Nilum, I was just about to start asking the same question. My Wii has been acting a little weird so I wanted to some investigating of the IOS' and see if there was an "ideal" situation. I ran sysCheck 2.0 and compared it against yours. The only differences I see is that I have IOS3 (rev 65280): Stub installed and I am running IOS70 (rev 6912): Stub. Everything else looks the same.

    Here is my results: http://cid-a21e1c8f1f16c524.office.live.co...w.aspx/Wii.xlsx

    One thing I am not sure of is which base versions I ran on 202, 222, 223, 224 and 249. From what I’ve read on this post (http://gbatemp.net/t212497-best-cios-selection-for-newbies) you should have:

    IOS202[60]-v65535 (v5 of Hermes cIOS) = USB2.0 for MPlayer, WiiXplorer and stuff
    IOS222[38]-v65535 (v5 of Hermes cIOS) = Stable IOS with the ability to install Wads
    IOS223[37]-v65535 (v5 of Hermes cIOS) = For use with Music Games with USB devices like Rock Band, Guitar Hero...
    IOS224[57]-v65535 (v5 of Hermes cIOS) = Better speed for USB loading. However, some Games might not work
    IOS249[57]-v20 (rev20 of Waninkokos cIOS) = Recommend by Waninkoko. Improves speed for USB loading. However, some Games might not work.
    IOS250[38]-v65535 (rev20 of Waninkokos cIOS) = Stable IOS with the ability to install Wads

    So my question goes out to the community, what is a “best practice” for IOSs to run a stable and compatible Wii for USB Loading (all IOSs)?

    Regards,

    GC

    Hey guys, you can open a csv file with wordpad [​IMG] Much easier to copy/paste with that than upload it in excel format [​IMG]

    True, but it's easier to read in Excel. And it's actually really easy to upload Excel with Office Online (if you use Office 2010).

    I'm pulling sysChecks on a few Wii's now. Looking for the right combination of IOSs.

    D-an-W, that's a DOP-Mii report, correct? I actually like the layout of that better then sysCheck.

    Question, the IOSs that are listed are the only ones you have installed? I notice there are many missing from your list.
