    the ios16 install is safe, it's also good to have incase all else gets screwed.
    (1 more ios to use with the signing bug [​IMG] )

    4.0 will remove it though.

    IOS16 is safe to install on all regions... in fact, it's used to downgrade System Menu 3.3v2 and 3.4. As mentioned before, 4.0 patches up this loophole.

    Why is is asking me to install IOS16-64-v257?

    Shouldnt this already be on my system since I am on 3.3U?

    Is this just a default function of the gay fish disc?

    Basically, IOS16 doesn't come with your Wii. Therefore Nintendo didn't bother updating the trucha bug out of it when they sent out 3.3v2 and 3.4. So people found out they could install it and then install cIOS with it to be able to downgrade.

    Then Ninty finally got smart and updated it in 4.0, closing the loophole because the Wii won't normally let you install an old IOS on top of a new one.

    That is, unless you use Waninkoko's 4.0 upgrader, that one only updates the system menu and IOS60+61 and the system channels. It doesn't install the dummy ios16 ...
