    I've been searching around for a few days now for an answer (Tried google, and searching forums such as this one), My question is does anyone know which IOS/IOS's are used when the wii is loading an N64 Title? Thanks much for any feedback.

    Thanks much, I'm trying an experiment to see just how the N64 VC Emulator functions. Figured i'd try to disassemble the IOS in IDA PRO and figure out whats what.

    It uses whatever the VC wad's tmd tells it to use. There doesn't seem to be a main IOS used by all of them, rather it's more like any game: older VC releases use older IOS, newer VC releases use newer IOS. Super Mario 64 runs under IOS9, but a newer one, such as Zelda Majora's mask runs under IOS53.

    So maybe instead of disassembling the IOS, you might want to disassemble the .dol file from the wad. I believe it is 00000001.app after unpacking (00000006.app is the NANDLoader).

    Hope this info helps.
