So I updated my Wii today and did a few new installs, preloader among them. But I'm wondering, which IOS is best to use as the default for preloader? And does the IOS that's loaded ever really need to be changed? Are there advantages to using one over another? And if so, what are they? I have noticed though that if I load IOS 249, I can't access my Wii settings. That's solved of course by simply loading IOS 60. Not sure if there are any other strange things like this that other folks have found. I'm on 4.1, by the way with rev 14 and a D2Pro mod installed. Also after the updates today, my channel stopped loading Gamecube discs. It should however due to the mod chip. I remember last time that the region-free GC option in preloader was interfering with loading GC backups, but that doesn't seem to be the case this time. Any suggestions what could be causing the interference? I used xzxero's simplistic mod also. The last thing I installed was step 8 - MIOS patcher v8.
