    Does having a Nintendo-signed IOS16 (IOS16-64-v257-prod.wad) mean that we'll always be able to use it to install WADs, using the IOS16 version of WADmanager? No matter what holes they patch, we'll always be able to install IOS16 using WADmanager and work from there (f.ex. install cIOS cIOS_249-rev6_rr.wad), right?

    No, I'm sure if Nintendo wanted to they could easily block the installation of IOS16 and they probably will.

    no, it's easily fixed by them simply releasing an update that includes a trucha-patched IOS16 to all Wii systems, or including it on disc updates. however, there are other workarounds, and I have even come up with one that is just as simple, and just as simply patched.

    If nintendo wanted to do another firesale, they could release patched versions of IOS16, and even overwrite our various cIOS's 249, 247, 254, etc....there is nothing currently stopping them from doing that. Bootmii eventually will be used in a way to intercept intended updates and patch them before they are installed.

    True, I get all that, but won't installing IOS16 (IOS16-64-v257-prod.wad) _over_ an updated IOS16 just work?

    It's signed by Nintendo, so why not?

    because you can't install an IOS that have lower version number over an IOS that have an higher version number.

    For example you can't install IOS16.222 over IOS16.250

    Dumb question, but how can you tell what ios's you have installed if you don't remember what all you put on? I know I used the ios for the shop updater that gave me the 3.3v2 benefits w/o the red-lines Ninty had. However, I want to play around with the wad installer but I see places that state to use cios16....

    --nm, I see now, AnyTitleDeleter then System, IOS's there.. lots too.

    what if you deleted the ios first with anytitle deleter then installed it ? assuming that the tp hack still works on the new firmware or the homebrew channel if you have it

    Anytitle deleter doesn't.

    And don't count on BootMii being any sort of update interceptor. Its purpose is to enable homebrew, not to patch the system.
