    OK,

    I was just curious... if Waninoko's new custom IOS lets you use DVD-ROM discs for emulators and such... does that mean it can read Trucha signed discs through the Homebrew Channel? Because I've been trying to back up my save from My Pokémon Ranch for a while, and if I make a disc with that header, I could use his save dumper and installer, right? Would that work? Or would I still need a modchip for it?

    i believe the two things it did was fix the trucha bug fix, aswell as enable unencrypted reading(dvdr in emu's).

    As the system menu doesn't use the custom IOS, it won't let you booting your Trucha discs from the Disc channel AFAIK.

    I dunno if it's really risky. Sure, if the IOS isn't proprely installed, it will crash the Wii, but AFAIK the cIOS works perfectly, so ... *wants to try*

    Not to mention bricks if they ever find out...


    I would wait until Marcan's restore tool comes out.

    So try overwriting it.
    If it is properly installed, nothing should go wrong, right?
    Since all it does it really change two things...

    EDIT: Sorry for asking, but Marcan's restore tool?

    It modifies enough to be detectable/stoppable.

    You'd have to continuously patch every IOS you install to make sure nothing goes wrong. That's why the cIOS uses a number that's out of the spectrum.


    Marcan and others are working on a tool that will allow you to restore your NAND... or at least prevent bricks.

    IOS is modular.

    The Wii saves every iteration of IOS in the NAND and the software calls the version it was designed for.

    The game needs to call that IOS.

    Not a problem, using IOS patcher by waninkoko but It won't allow you to load truched discs

    I know that SquidMan's WiiMU has a test build out which can dump a save based on the TitleID.
