    I updated the cIOS's on my Wii to the latest rev21 d2x v6, and I accidentily installed it to Base 200 instead of 249 (its there as well now).

    Will it affect anything?
    What is 200 used for?

    Cool, thanks.
    If it doesn't do anything, why does the d2x installer have it as an option?

    Because installer is flexible. User is still required to read and think.

    Sometimes some people need or want to put a cIOS in whatever slot so we let you the choice between 55 slot [​IMG]
    About 95% of people are using just slot 249 and 250 [​IMG]

    New isn't always better. So some people like their cios in slot 249 and 250 to stay the way they are, and they install the new revisions in a different slot.
    Some usbloaders like usbloader_gx have the option to select from which slot the cios should be used. Some usbloaders only allow to switch between frequently used slots.

    It becomes risky if you install a Âios in a slot already in use by another ios. ios 70 is used for system menu 4.2, and ios 80 for system menu 4.3.
    If you mess with those, your system menu can fail to start properly.

    Impossible with this Installer, it allows only from slot 200 to slot 254 [​IMG]

    This is a good thing.

    If you install many cIOS revs to slots 200-220 (for example) then IF a new game comes out that doesn't work with your newest 249 slot cIOS you can try the older revs without any hassle within seconds.

    imho this is great for testers etc.
