Salutations everyone! new user here with a quick IOS question.
Hi everyone! I'm new to these forums and pretty much the wii homebrew scene, so please be gentle if I sound like a complete noob.
Anyway, I've been doing a lot of reading lately on the IOS aspect of the wii. From what I understand, cIOS installation requires an existing IOS on the wii as a base. At least this is what I think based on trying to install Hermes' cIOS 222 and 223. However, what I would like to know is why is this so, i.e., why must the cIOS 222 installation use IOSXX or IOSXX merged with IOSXX as a base?
Also, what difference does it make if I use one option as opposed to another, for instance if I chose to install cIOS 222 using IOS36 as a base as opposed to using IOS38 merged with 36?
Hope to hear from you guys soon. Thanks in advance.
