And you can cheat OFFLINE as much as you like without getting caught. I hate cheaters though.

Hello. Not too fond of cheaters either, kills the spirit of the game.
As for Cios. Since you are already 3.4 and don't seem interested in playing backups, you wouldn't find any real need for cios file.
They are really only necessary if you are using backup launcher or if you are playing a game that requires an update and you don't want to update your system. Since neither or these refer to you, you won't find much use for cios files. Even if you did install them, the worst that they could do is semi-brick your Wii. And this is very rare. Even if this does happen to you, it is a very easy process to reverse that leaves no permanent damage.
Basically, your largest concern should be whether its worth the energy to look it up and install and not really safety. I have installed quite a few with no problems. I hope I helped.

You don't need a cIOS but i think it will be worth having, install the latest one...it may come in handy one day and will not ruin your wii or affect its performance in any way, install this one with wad manager, you will be glad you did one day
but for know...I can play all games without any cIOS with 3.4E I'm just using wiikey and anything else...
Maybe when games with 4.0E will be released I can make a backup with WDS to erase the Upgrade or lunch it with GeckoOS, is this correct?!
For what I understand, cIOS are needed for those who use backup launcher with a softmod....
