    Does anyone have a link to all the what all the different IOS/cIOS [​IMG] are and do, and there progression on a time line/family tree layout style.

    As there are quite a few out now, it would be good to have a nice overall pic of how they all fit line/line up.

    If not I may try and knock one up.

    Cheers

    Gambia, The
    I was thinking/wondering/wishing for the same thing.
    Maybe we could set up a wiki page to compare the numerous cIOSes.

    You could also add cIOS 202 (?), that is, USB2.

    cheers.. I may look at getting this kind of setup.. I thought (prob my mistake) that there are more cios. However i guess that includes all the cIOSCORPS, which are just the system IOS modifed .

    cIOSCORPS = each retail IOS from here with custom DIP module borrowed from CIOS

    That's what I thought, just injected the dvd access bits (DIP) into the standard IOS.

    Somewhat true, but a little inaccurate (in my understanding anyway).

    CIOSCorp has the kernel from cIOS inserted into each IOS above 21 (actually replacing the existing kernel). The kernel is represented by the 00000001.app in cIOS and the higher IOS versions. The DIP "bits" are not the entire kernel, and not all IOS titles above 21 had the same kernel to begin with (there were at least 3 different kernel variations amongst the higher IOS versions).

    With CIOSCorp all IOS titles above 21 have exactly the same kernel.

    In addition, since IOS versions 21 and lower are not modular in the same way that the higher IOS versions are (i.e. the "kernel" app is the entire IOS in those lower versions), the IOS was completely replaced with a copy of DIP'ed IOS36.

    This is my understanding anyway (may not be 100% correct). Pretty dramatic modification in my opinion...
