    CIOS 249 version

    After inspecting a relatives system, it has CIOS 249 V10. I noticed the CFG Loader reports that the version < 14. Is there a compelling reason to update? Loading options? Maybe Homebrew Browser?

    There are several reasons to update. Preventing HDD corruption seems like a pretty big one.

    If you have rev10, then your softmod is really out of date. Follow all of Softmod ANY Wii (in my sig) without skipping any steps. It doesn't matter if you don't think they are necessary. They are.

    I have downloaded the CIOS-PACK.zip specified in 'Softmod ANY Wii'. There are 11 .wad files of which one is for CIOS249[38]-V17.

    I am inclined to install only this .wad, unless a senior members advise and provide a compelling reason to include the rest of the .wad files.

    I just backed up my NAND and KEYS today, so if I decided that I was unhappy with adding the .wad files, could I recover back to today's configuration with the NAND backup? I am hesitant when it comes to changing things that can't be 'undone'.

    They can be undone without a nand backup. Don't restore your nand unless you absolutely need to...always ask here first. Follow the ENTIRE guide as already mentioned. Do not skip anything, install all the wads and follow all the steps.
    Damn I suck!!!!

    I would like to inventory (keep track of changes) the system as I make the changes. I have just tried System Check. Is this there a better tool for this purpose?

    You can do a before and after, but stopping and running a sysCheck between steps could end very badly (like a full or semi brick). You need to start following the directions instead making up your own as you go along.

    Yes, just follow the guide exactly. You don't need to inventory or write down anything. You sound very paranoid....don't worry about it.
