    The thing is there isn't really an "ideal" setup that's generic enough for everyone to use. Rather, people usually set their consoles up on a case-by-case basis to adhere to both their interests and activities. Talking specifically about the IOS files under 200, mauifrog just proved to us irrefutably that the only IOS called on by backup loaders is the system IOS (30/50/60/70/80 depending on your menu), and only after exiting the game (which is run solely from 222/223/224/249 typically). It's hard to state exactly what setup everyone should have. So we don't.

    I usually recommend to keep your revisions up-to-date, but only so far as when you run into an issue. Game black screens? Brand new original disc? Update the IOS it needs. Other than that, I see no reason to mess with system files for the typical user. I do because I like to tinker, but I also know how to troubleshoot my way out of a brick.

    As far as CSG you'll have to take that up with them. We are in no way affiliated with the group who runs that guide and website.

    Concerning the latest of Wanin's cIOS rev20 I had planned to make an update to the corresponding guide, but have decided to hold off as it sounds like a new revision is due out soon and I just plain don't have the time right now. The typical base IOS to use range between 37, 38, 56, and 57 for many users. Anyone who's had questions on this throughout the forum has usually been answered within moments of asking, the information is so prevalent. But I do agree more information needs be added to the appropriate guide, which I intend to do.

    To answer your final question, if you're looking for a non-modded setup then yes, that looks fine. But beyond that I can't comment without knowing your intentions for the console.

    Hi Ithian,

    Thank you for taking the time to reply to me.

    So you bring up an interesting point of the difference scenarios. If there is no one ideal setup, there might be a few different options that could be designed? At least this way people would know what combination will get them what result and ideally they would stay with it.

    Sticking with the topic of the lower IOS’, and specifically the comment “mauifrog just proved to us irrefutably that the only IOS called on by backup loaders is the system IOS”, is there any reason to have any of those IOS’ patched in anyway?

    Let me setup a scenario. Below is a sysCheck from a Wii that was a virgin 4.0, upgraded to 4.2 using Waninkoko’s 4.2 updater, then upgrade to 4.3 using Waninkoko’s 4.3 updater. If in this scenario, the person was purely looking at USB Loaders, what would you recommend to be done/changed/addressed with this setup?

    Yeah the question has come up before. A generalized subset of IOS for every user to have on their console isn't necessary because, by nature of the console and the guides we introduce new members to, most users end up with not only functional, but usually optimal configuration of IOS. For those who continue to have issues, which counting the numbers of the top softmod guide views vs. the number of help requests daily is an incredibly small percentage, the expediency of assistance on this forum is efficient, and it's blazing fast.

    To put this in perspective I usually don't have time to help someone on this forum, even when I'm browsing for people to help, because someone else has written up a similar or sometimes better solution before I've finished typing mine up. This is a daily event and that really is how fast things move here.

    Your IOS list looks fine. I would say take a look at this and this, so you can learn a little more about the functions of various IOS.

    I still don't understand folks' compulsion to update something that offers absolutely no benefits at all to their softmod. I will grant you, at least you used Wani's "safe updaters" so it presents certainly less a big deal than you'd otherwise be facing. Just remember: if this was done out of some misguided sense of better game compatibility, that would be a fallacy.

    Ok, so there is no concern with the IOS’ having the Trucha Bug, ES_Idenitfy or NAND Access being applied to them then? I have read that one train of thought is that all of your IOS’ lower than 200 should be “pure” or unpatched. Do you feel this is true or that makes a difference one way or the other?

    The reason I tend to follow the steps I listed it because of what Ithian said at the beginning of this post “It's up to you to keep the IOS files your system needs up to date once your Wii is softmodded.” I figure it makes the most sense to keep the Wii current.

    Please understand that I am not here to incite anyone’s wrath, but to learn and understand further so that I can help others as well. I’m even enjoying reading through this site so much that I donated $20

    The IOS's do not need the latest version installed, just as long as you have a version installed. So, any IOS that is installed in your Wii don't need an update.

    That sysCheck you posted, any IOS above IOS35 never had the turcha bug installed from nintendo, somebody added the turcha bug to those IOS's, and a virgin 4.0 didn't have any of the IOS's below 200 with the turcha bug, somebodys been playin with DOP-Mii.

    This only really applies to hard mod users and people playing the original disks from the disk channel (although I read somewhere NSMBW needs a certain revision). Anyway, when playing from a backup loader, only the cIOS is used. It doesn't matter if you have the IOS installed or not (I tested this with USB Loading).
    Damn I suck!!!!

    We appreciate the donation gamecaptor. The trepidation we display towards the 4.3 system menu is designed around the fact that it's sole purpose is the elimination of homebrew. It contains no "behind the scenes" improvements, as Nintendo usually claims, and is, in my opinion, an overall detriment to the experience of the console. So when we see someone willingly update their console for the sake of updating, any frustration sent out is generalized towards the source for releasing software which is, for all intents and purposes, useless.

    Beyond what the guys mentioned above, I recommend you read the guides I linked you and continue to read the various guides on this forum which hold relevant interest to you. There is nothing I (and indeed many of us) can tell you about the Wii console that isn't documented somewhere in this forum.

    I suspect you saw mauifrog's IOS where he stripped everything other than SM IOS and the cIOS and everything ran?
