    I'm so high, I don't even know!
    cSM will be a dol file("installer") not a wad file... wad files are forbidden not dol files("installer")

    Think that, wad install just one thing, dol can install more things!

    cIOS files are not allowed because they or most of them have actual Nintendo code in them witch makes them illegal... because it's copy written by Nintendo...

    I believe csm will use it's own custom code to modify whats already on the wii... So it won't be illegal persay... I'm not a lawyer min you...

    cSM is just a system menu mod.

    Just like Starfall is.

    Is Starfall illegal?

    No.

    this is straight from that thread posted in the first post

    "installers" are allowed but the wad files are ripped from games, ect. therefore are offical and illegal to post now

    at least this is how i understand it

    Everything is allowed as long as it does not contain code from someone else. A installer which contains code from nintendo would be forbidden and a completely new written IOS wad would be allowed. The problem with the last one is that it would be a lot work to confirm the fact that it does not contain nintendo code.
