    Just another Noob :)

    Hey all! Liking the site, best I've managed to find so far!

    Well, I'm intermediate-Expert in computing (I'd like to think) but as far as the Wii and cracking consoles goes, I'm relatively new. I've unsuccessfully tried to softmod X-box, PS2 and Wii.

    I'm currently very lost on the Wii. v3.4E (updated to 4.1, read below)
    I found a few tutorials about softmodding, followed them all the way through and they all seemed to end after installing Homebrew Channel and Bootmii.
    Then I found this site, and the main focus here is cIOS and IOS which is confusing me a lot.

    My Questions Are:
    As a whole, what are the IOS's actually there for?
    Is the Wii actually "softmodded" by the homebrew and bootmii? And the IOS's are just instructions for the Wii to read copied discs/boot from HDD/USB etc..?

    I stupidly installed System Menu 4.1, before installing the IOS's. I've read it'll brick if I install them on 4.1...? Which app do I need to roll it back to 3.4E?

    I only have a 32mb SD card. I've managed so far, up to installing the IOS's. (I'm beginning to build a grudge against IOS's!) Some tutorials have downloadable packs, Some are 24mb going up to 42mb. Could someone, "in the know," please give me a list of the absolute minimum IOS and cIOS's that I will need? I only want to boot from DVD-r's after all.

    I think that's it so far. I've seen people ask for help in "Introduction" before, but will probably post this in another 'Noob' subject too.
