    cIOS is a custom homebrew-only IOS. There is also an unistaller if you choose to remove it. A DVD dumper has been created, which uses this IOS to dump games to the front SD.

    But homebrew can already do that, no? If this doesnt add usb loading of channels etc, what really is the point at the moment? Sure it could be great in the future, but i see no reason to use this as it stands.

    No. The DVD drive has always been offlimits to a non-modded Wii. Having a modded IOS makes reading the drive possible. I'm not sure what the other features are, it will probably be updated with some more as time progresses.

    Yes, but that is distributed with a very similar modified IOS. Same concept as this, just released a bit earlier. I suspect this is safer as well, as it comes with an uninstaller.

    There are no visible changes, this IOS is just placed into the flash memory for homebrew use. Primarily, this will allow homebrew to dump DVDs, or even allow emulators to access DVDs of ROMs, etc.

    Very cool news. Does this mean we can now read homebrew off DVD-Rs? For those of us who don't have chipped Wiis that is.

    Some news for you people... this custom IOS is illegal, full stop. Wanky uses copyrighted Nintendo code for it. To quote marcan directly:

    Might want to get it taken down ASAP before... say, Nintendo find out.

    Nintendo should be able to disable in no time. Just a check if there is a IOS with that number and do a full delete of that files. (Don't kill me if I'm wrong)
    Seeing that It's Illegal (and things like that can kill a homebrew scene , look at the old xbox (1) ) we have to wait for someone to write his own code. Maybe somebody makes a DVD player for Wii. =)
