    hi all,

    two things I don't understand with 'pimp my wii' - if it updates cIOS etc. does it also trucha patch the new cIOS it downloads and installs?

    also if you've got say a 4.1E system - does it update to 4.3E or does it update to the latest versions of the 4.1E system file?

    Many thanks for clarification.

    It trucha bugs all the "safe" IOS's.

    It DOES NOT update your system to 4.3. It just updats the IOS's in your Wii to 4.3 (most recent).

    thanks for the info Kryptical!

    now I need to go read why an IOS is not the same as the Wii System (eg: 4.1E, 4.3E etc.)

    It's basically the same except 4.3 is more recent / newer / updated then 4.1.

    The IOS is different from the system menu. 2 different things. IOS is an operating system and the System Menu (SM) is more of a front end. The SM is loaded using an IOS and both SM and IOS are in the update. When PimpMyWii updates it doesn't update the system menu just the ioses. This way the wii has all the newer updates that games need and NOT the new system menu which is what causes us all the hassles(HBC Problems Ect Ect). That's the best I know on the subject. feel free to correct or add to it!

    CHEERS
