MIOS -cmios (WiiGator)= mios v4 with WiiGator's GC Backup Launcher 0.2 embedded into it. FAQ rev65281 are maxed to prevent Nintendo from stubbing them v54321 is elevated way above the current version to prevent Nintendo from stubbing them Trucha Bug- enables the ios to load fakesigned, custom data, disks, wads, etc Es-Identify- used by apps such as "any title deleter' Nand- I have no idea, but it is important Flash- only found in older ios, like ios36-v1042 or ios16-v257 and many other old ios. When loaded with this ios, Any Title Deleter gives no error at startup. cios9,11,20,30,50,60,70,80,80- all have trucha, es-edentify, rev13 dip, and version 54321. This prevents their removal during nintendo updates. This provides need patches to load custom data. This provides dip patches to run recovery disks without a modchip on wiis that can read burned dvds. This supports system menu 1.0-4.3+ on all wiis, even lu64+wiis. Prevents stubbed system ios bricks, and downgrade upgrade bricks, and the like of similar stupid brick types. Prevents error 003 on 4.2/4.3 and possible furture system menu version on region changed Korean wiis. Assuming the next system ios is ios90, it provides needed patches to recover softmod should you update (like a fool). cio16- is just a version patched ios16-v257. This is the ios that runs the Nintendo Backup Disk, which was stubbed on 4.x system menus. Installing this cios restores the Nintendo Backup Disk, but it only runs via modchip. The Nintendo Backup Disk can backup all of your save data. It can format your wii removing bannerbricks, mailbox corruptions and other system menu corruptions. Most importantly, it can install any savegame exploit supported by your system menu, such as Indiana PWNS or Yo Gi Vah, Twilight hack, etc. I have tried to disk swap with it, but have failed, perhaps I did not try hard enough. cios36 has trucha, es-identify, nand, r13 dip- allows for recovery via mario kart patched channel install or Castelvenia disk swap from recovery menu. From disk channel, allows for SSBB, Castelvania disk swap without modchip to recovery softmod from SM update (assuming ios90 is not sm ios). cios200+ has most common used cios configs and can all be loaded from cfg loader, and other usbloaders. cio236- has trucha bug, es identify, nand, and version patch. - this cios is used to restore the trucha bug and is installed via cboot2 or ABHPROT. Once installed, it is used to install all other patched ios. The version patch removes the need to delete stubbed ios, which is common in many 4.2 guides but is no longer required when using current TBR methods. This ios config has been setup to support all common recovery methods known to me, without the need of a modchip, and to preserve them during a FAIL update. It also has all required cios for game play, that I am aware of.
