    I just noticed a description of a new IOS posted on Wiibrew and I have found that it can be downloaded using NUSD (00000001-00000039 v5404). Does anyone know anything more about this new IOS? On wiibrew it claims that this new IOS is related in some way with Wii Sports Resort. Can anyone confirm with a legit copy of this game and WUFE?

    I checked my IOS listing and didn't found IOS57. On the other side Wii Sports Resort works well without it.

    I'm NTSC-U and at the moment I don't have Wii Sports Resort. It's good to know that this new IOS isn't required for Wii Sports Resort - I'm just curious if there are any games out there yet that do require it.

    this ios 57 has updated usb module's, like ./dev/usb/ehc.. is added .... i tested myself and even normal usb 1 acces fails on ios 57 so they definitly changed the usb module, this probably includes usb 2.0 support but no way to acces it now at the moment

    It does seem interesting that they changed the USB protocols. Could just be bug fixes though. I guess we'll see.

    yes i use beardface's loader it is great.
    also works on usb loader cfg

    seems this ios is for adding official usb 2 devices to future releases either games and/or add ons
    does this mess with the usb loaders if i install it then?
    i dont think i need it so going to not do that just yet.

    launch day pal wii, sys menu 4.0, hbc, bootmii, cios rev 10, beardface loader, usb 2, toshiba 320g HDD,

    I understand that both disc and USB loaders run games using a cIOS rather than from an unmodified IOS. I was just interested in whether this IOS is necessary for any retail (i.e. legit) games that are available yet.

    As i expected. IOS57 could still be the Wii Sports Resort IOS.

    I didn't understand it. [​IMG]


    WSR work without IOS57!
    WSR work from dvd without IOS57!
    WSR work via USB loader without IOS57!

    IOS57 have some new/better features and changes.
    But for what ... WSR ...?

    I get IOS57 via NUSD and it's installed in my Wii but nothing @ WSR has changed if i start it from USB or DVD.


    So what has this to do with WSR?



    Edit:
    I use a PAL Wii with 4.1e (and since some hour it has IOS57 [​IMG]).

    It's possible the US version of Sports Resort will use it. As you've said numerous times, the Japanese version does not.

    If the Japanese version doesn't (presumably PAL doesn't either), the US version will not. A different IOS is never used when a game is brought to another region (except for Korea).

    WiiPower is correct - you would only need this IOS if you have a legal purchased copy of a game that requires IOS57. All loaders (disc or USB) rely on a cIOS to play a game.

    nope, it is only speculation from the guy who updated wiibrew wiki and he's probably wrong:
    he thought that ohci0 was something related to USB 2, which it doesnt

    ohci only supports USB 1.1 and ohci0 is probably only a modified/renamed oh0 module

    ...it probably fails because homebrew (libogc) access the USB port as /dev/usb/oh0 and it doesn't exist anymore

    ahhh i see, so having this ios will not change my access to my hdd? ie it will not kill usb2 support for homebrew? need to know as i run everything off my hdd, like mplayer/alarmii/wii physics, and a couple of backups through usb coverfloader.

    i am buying wii sports resort next week so i can read the manual and get another motion plus so need to know before i make any problems for myself if the retail disc uses this new ios.

    thanks for any help wiipower

    Using the right now. I'll check, if it needs IOS57 in about a hour.

    -> Isn't required as far as I tested. Blocked update without IOS57 installed and the retail works fine. Does the game even use USB peripherals? Never saw such a feature. Not on the backup, not on the retail.

    And the retail version too. It work without IOS57 and also there is no IOS57 installer on my pal dvd.


    Edit:
    Det1re was faster, but here it's the same.
