    I'd like to know what (if there is any) cIOS do I need for USB Loader GX AND to load Virtual Consoles from Gecko OS. Thanks.
    A single cIOS is preferable to multiple, but if necessary, I will do multiple.

    Thanks, Installing cIOS's have always given me trouble. Is there an automatic installer I could use? Or a tool?

    Modmii is as close as you'll get.

    Hermes cIOS222 v5 loads the majority of games faster than d2x, but it takes a small compatibility hit (maybe 5 games).

    There isn't a list showing the differences of them, is there?

    Also, I'd prefer one that doesn't add extra functionality. Just allows me to use USB Loader GX and Gecko OS.

    cios249(base 56)
    cios 250(base57)

    IF you want a simple method use modmii, go to dowload page 4 and set the option to download all recommended cios's.
    Install them using a wad manager

    I mainly go with the selection mentioned on this wiiflowiki page. It mentions the version, base IOS and slot. The download link has a package to d2x version 8 final, which is most likely better than the mentioned beta r41 package.

    As mentioned, the IOS'es with bases 56 and 57 will be enough for roughly 99,9% of the games (I remember one that only worked on 58, but that was an unique one...and some d2x versions ago). Note that the "added functionality" doesn't hinder anything if it's installed in other slots. So even though I probably never use those in slots 245 to 248, it doesn't hurt to have them.



    @[member='kirbymaster101']: you have no idea what you're talking about, right? "249" is just the name of the slot. I can install my mother to slot 249 and call her cIOS249...it doesn't make her a recommended cIOS to load anything. Even if she was based on IOS56.

    Reading all this makes me realize that I really don't understand cIOS's. What do you mean by slots? And are there multiple IOS's on a Wii at once?

    You reinforced his point. That only tells which slots were used to build the cios in, and which official IOS was used as a base to build the cios. In no way does it tell which cios to use.

    Slots are numbers where cIOS's and IOS's take shape in. For example, I could install IOS60 into slot 59, and then IOS60 would take the form of IOS59.

    To answer your other question, yes.
