    Installing it enables USB2.0 support
    You don't need it for DVDs afaik (although you'll need DVDx instead)

    Other Media Players? The Wii only has MPlayer-CE/MPlayer from Team Twiizers and WiiMC which can play DVDs. And only the Player from Team Twiizers uses DVDX. All other ones want IOS202, because DVDX is integrated in it. So, if you compare your Wii to an PC (which it sounds like), I'm sorry, but then you are stupid.

    The Wii is not a PC. Not only Hardware-wise, but also the way it works. The Wii works around IOS, which are pieces in the Wii that enable new things (like USB 2.0, Camera, WiiSpeak, etc. for example). IOS202 enables USB 2.0 and DVD-Support (which Nintendo planed to integrate on the Wii, but cut it out in the end. Thanks to Team Twiizers, some Code was still found and made DVD-Playback possible). If you don't have that, the Wii doesn't know what to do with the Disc, and it won't work.

    So, install it, or leave it. If you are afraid (though there is no reason), you should know that you can always uninstall it, and that this cIOS was the only one that survived the 4.2 Update (it wasn't overwritten by a Nintendo Stub). If you're still feared, then you should think about if hacking is the right thing for you.

    Read up on IOS here.
    Read up how the Wii works on HackMii.

    @tj_cool: I think the IOS202 is needed for DVD? It contains DVDX, and support for DVDX was dropped in many apps, as far as I know (at least from Tantric's side, look at the Changelog from his Emulators..and he's a developer of WiiMC, so, do the math [​IMG].).

    Haven't been keeping up with the DVDx / IOS202 stuff, so if you say so I have no reason to doubt that [​IMG]

    To my understanding.. it can run like a real retail dvd such as menu, subtitle, trailer, etc like it does on dvd player ?

    It IS a real Retail DVD (at least I'm not shure if burned DVDs would work. Maybe they could, because Data-DVDs work, but still...I dunno). But I tested Ratatouille (which didn't played in MPlayer-CE) and it worked, Menu came up, and I could select the Bonus Movies, which played. Didn't test more, but it's not perfect. It was 4:3 (on my 16:9 TV, and I couldn't change it). The "Cursor" (or better, a transparent bar) is buggy, and it seems to have some problems if you want to skip the ads.

    Though, it's still impressive, and it seems to (somehow) work [​IMG].

    If you have Internet: Just grab the Installer and run it. Without Internet, you have to grab IOS57 from NUS with NUS-Downloader, decrypt it, and place it under /ios/ in your SD, I think...

    IOS57 is the new recommended Base (it's also what the WiiMC-Installer uses), just as a mention...

    Yeah, it should. But IOS57 is a bit faster/etc...but you can leave it.

    this bothered me enough to make and account just for this and the fact that no one else said anything and yes it will make me feel better to say something no matter what you think.
    your stupid the wii is a computer it follows lines of command witch is what a computer is your microwave if you have one has a computer in it, it follows your stupid hands attached to your stupid body attached to your stupid head when they press buttons your cellphone, the atari 2600, nintendo, dvd players, tv remote, calculators your vehicles have a computer in it reading lines of command over and over again making sure nothing is wrong many many other things the wii most certainly is a computer. now a few things that are not a computer for stupid people thinking i'm just listing anything electronic a blow dryer is not a computer it does not follow lines of command the switch slides a medal pin up making the electric flow to the motor and it blows, power tools are not, Christmas lights, flash lights, electric lighters, speakers, disposal, older stoves with the medal rings i could go on but maybe you get it now and maybe you will just reply back with a stupid remark or come back but facts are facts wii is a pc it follows lines of command having multiple ios's means nothing on it being a computer or not if anything it only gives it even more lines of command to follow.
