If it fits your main boot ios it will boot faster
no other difference
So you can load any version, but if you load the version you are set on it will load faster.
Hope that helps.
What does it mean?
"ATTENTION : Set all your user defined paths to SD card or you can corrupt your data."
So I cannot use FAT32 USBHDD anymore for paths?
EDIT: I think if this feature is used.
"* Added support for using both USB ports at once (ONLY ON HERMES CIOS).
Use this option with Multiple partitions option to list all the games from all partitions from both ports at once."
I installed v2.1, boot IOS 222, it's really fast!
