    Anything loaded from the system menu will load whatever ios it is set to use, and if that ios does not support the app, e.g. the ios is outdated, the app will fail to load. Now, you could patch the wad to run on a different ios. I imagine that cios would run most wiiware if they were patched to load them. Or perhaps just ios57.

    IOS61 (rev 5661): Trucha Bug

    These IOS's are not installed, from Nintendo, with the trucha bug, on a virgin Wii. And, there is no guide here that has you do that to those IOS's.

    edit - these IOS's should be installed with "no patches".
    So then Waninkoko’s updater must be doing it (?)

    Should I be re-installing those IOS’ with Dop-Mii with no Trucha Bug (patches)?

    I think I’m starting to get it all now (please correct me if I’m wrong)

    1. Stub IOS’ are “ear marked” by Nintendo as they are no longer in use; they are simply place holders as there was once a used IOS there.
    2. The revision of the IOS makes no difference; you simply need to have a few core IOS’ to make certain games run.
    a. Having the latest/greatest revision of an IOS has no bearing at all.
    b. The Trucha Bug, ES_Identify and NAND Access have no bearing on the IOS’ less than 200

    Am I catching on to it now?

    (this is all very fascinating to me; seeing how this process is handled with the Wii, I’m very curious to see how Nintendo has learned from all of this and will deal with it for the 3DS)

    You may want to have IOS36 patched, some homebrew apps use that.

    Just use DOP-Mii on those 8 IOS's I listed above.

    I wouldn't go messing with the IOS's below IOS36 and never delete an IOS below IOS200. Messing with the IOS's below IOS200 can brick, know what you are doing and have bootmii as boot2, with a NAND backup (just in case of a brick).

    Yes it could be the wanin updater doing it (never used one and never will).

    1.Yes
    2.From USB, only the cIOS is used. I do think the IOS revision makes a difference with games/apps actually using it (although obviously this opinion can vary). Best rule is, leave it alone if it works.
    a. Again, not so much but it depends on what you are referring to.
    b. No, It is good to have a patched system IOS along with certain other IOS..for different reasons. (again opinions vary here...read and decide for yourself)

    (Just my views, take it or leave it)

    Well then, my Wii is proof that the IOS's do not need updating, to have working games with softmods. But please, nobody should downgrade their IOS's, only update, if that's your thing. Lately, it seems that official Nintendo updates are not good for softmods, could this be true with IOS versions too?

    Thank you both Stomp_442 and Krank for the input. I truly think the “best practice” for a Wii is “less is more”

    Out of curisoty, let me present you this then. Here is a sysCheck for my personal Wii (the other was a friends). What would you change, if anything, for my setup (it’s a Black Wii). The only thing I do is use USB Loader GX and load up an occasional WiiWare (which I install to my SD card until Triiforce works with cIOSX again).

    sysCheck



    Aye, this is exactly what i was looking to put together (was searching for the wrong thing initially): IOS History - WiiBrew

    did you see this at that wiibrew link
    As a rule, an existing IOS will never have new features added to it, to protect binary compatibility. This means that any updates for existing IOSes are only meant to fix bugs -- generally, security bugs.
    I still don't know why your IOS38 - IOS58 have patches? IOS38 needs to be patched since it's your system menu IOS. Do all of your games work?

    Everything I've tried does thus far. I'm confused, you said you don't understand why my IOS38 through IOS58 have patches, but IOS38 need to be patched since it's my system menu IOS.

    After much reading and thinking, I have decided to do a NAND restore back to its original defaults. Here is my starting point:

    sysCheck


    I’m no genius with the Wii, but I am smart enough to have BootMii and Priiloader installed and take NAND backups often

    I’m going to give ShadowSonic2 guides a try: http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...y-4-2-wii.html

    I'll report back with my updated sysCheck.

    ok, I sort of followed ShadowSonic2’s guide. The wad pack is not available any longer, but I followed most of the rest of the steps. Here is my current sysCheck:

    sysCheck



    I installed Waninkoko’s cIOSX v20 for IOS249 with a base of 57 and IOS250 with a base of 38 (though it doesn’t seem to reflect that in this sysCheck).
    http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...installer.html

    I installed Hermes’ v5.1 for IOS222 with a base of 38 and IOS223 with a base of 32.

    As of right now, USB Loader GX will launch, but will not load any of my games. In some cases I get an error that says “fs error: bad magic” (?) or I just get a black screen.

    On a side note, I see there is a new version of Dop-Mii out, but they removed the patching ability. Isn’t that one of the main features of Dop-Mii?
    http://www.wiihacks.com/homebrew-app...w-edition.html

    Again, thank you all for being so patient with me while I am learning through this process.
