    Official game disk + missing IOS

    Hi,

    Not sure if this is the right place to post but here goes.
    A while back my girlfriend bought a game "my body coach".
    When I tried to start it through the official disk channel it prompted for an update but since my wii is softmodded I cancelled.
    Next I tried running it through Neogamma which worked fine but I was a bit annoyed with the slow loading speeds and also a bit afraid that my GF would accidentally run it throug the official disk channel and do an update. (no problem anymore I have priloader now)

    But comes the question!
    After that, I don't know why but I tried to run the game through Gecko. Gecko clearly stated which IOS was needed to install (don't remember which).
    I assumed it would just install the IOS from disk and I pressed A to confirm.
    the IOS was installed and the game is running fine now thorugh the official disk channel.

    Now I was wondering if this is a safe way to get missing IOS installed for official games on my Wii. For example I would like to buy Metroid 3 but I see it's using IOS28 which I don't have on my Wii. is it safe to just let Gecko take care of bussiness and install it from the official disk?

    Thanks narse for your reply.
    I have read the those guides but I was just curious what the risks are from updation through gecko. As long as I check my syscheck first to make sure the IOS is installed in a previously empty slot I thought it would be fine?

    Here's what metroid prime needs:

    Metroid 3 Prime Corruption.............IOS28-64-v1288...........System Menu 2.1

    Does this mean I only need IOS28 when on system menu 2.1?
    I am on menu 4.1.

    I assume you have been reading Tealcs list?

    That is telling you that you need ios 28 v 1288 or higher and that the disc has System Menu 2.1 on it. Games aren't reliant on SM...

    Yes I have, so it's IOS28 no matter what. So would I be safe installing the IOS from disk though Gecko?
    The IOS's that are downloaded from NUSD, aren't they the same anyway?

    I know you guys are trying to help and I understand about getting the IOS through the NUSD but I still don't know about the Gecko thing and getting the IOS from the disk? Is there any good reason wgy I should not do this?
    Please tell me if I'm asking a stupid question and why I'm just trying to understand stuff...

    You can extract the IOS a game needs from the game itself but it's a harder and longer proccess- http://www.wiihacks.com/other-faq-gu...-run-game.html

    Ok thanks for the link!
    Is the IOS untoutched when you install it though this method or the NUSD method or is it somehow modified/patched?
