    Just try playing IOS-reloading games via loaders... they won't work...
    Tell me about it, I hate burning discs to play them games. I just pain hate burning discs. Waninkoko says in his tweet that the next cIOS may have the IOS reload thing fixed, but I have an unpatched Splinter Cell on my HDD waiting to see. I think that burning games to disc is a thing of the past that some people just don't want to let go. Sure IOS reload, Gamecube and maybe some others may require it currently. And the kid that wants to hide Wii modifications from his parents cIOScorp will come in handy. Wasn't it called riskiimii for a reason?

    I would just like to say, I know it has been a blast hating on cIOSCORP in the past. BUT, it is a legitimate hack, whether you have a use for it or not. Since we all wish to see these hack continue, we should support any and all available hacks. Hate the noobs who install this and muck up their wii out of ignorance/stupidity, but we should not hold one mod as an example.

    ciIOSCORP/DARKCORP is a full mod of the wii system. However the risk of doing any permanent harm to the wii is not any greater than installing ios60patched or ios70patched. There is no question that cios60 or cios70 function as required for the wii to live, the ONLY true risk is in its installation. If you download or install a corruption system ios, or loss power during its install, you are mucked, but that is the risk of mucking with the system ios, which is STANDARD PRACTICE.

    Now we have has many funny amusing ways to insult the NOOB users who have mucked up their wii installing this mod. However I would say that most issues are a relice of the past.

    Issues in no particular order:
    Inverted Hombrew Channel, for you noobs, that mean your homebrew channel is upside down.

    Ok, anyone with half a brain knows why this happens, and how to fix it. Also any half brained apps knows it has nothing to do with cIOSCORP, so send your hate toward hackmii for hating on your patched ios.

    No vulnerable ios- again, a nice gift from our patched ios hating friends at hackmii, not caused by cIOSCORP. It could be caused by dop-ios, or dop-mii or pimp my wii, but it has nothing to do with the mod, hate hackmii.

    Brick- well bricks suck, sometimes when you install a system ios, things go south- live with it you CHEAP bastard. Again, nothing to do with cIOSCORP. This isue could happen during ANY method of system ios install/mod, which is standard practice.

    This game fails to load- well life sucks and nothing is perfect. There is probably a workaround of some sort, deal with it.

    Why the hell did I write this? Well for one wiihacks is should/be a respected source of info, but for some reason we seem to get our cIOSCORP info second hand. Perhaps if we bashed the noobs more and the softmods less, we would have current info form the source, instead of copy/paste. Second, cIOSCORP has shined in some areas that are very important, such as the error 003 Korean wii- this should be taken into consideration. If you have a KOR bricked 003 wii, it is dead unless it was blessed by the cIOSCORP angel.

    P.S. I don't actually use this mod, but support any and all mods of the wii. Hack the thing to pieces as fare as I'm concerned. For all you noobs with bricked wiis, you should have done your homework first, but your at the right place for help.

    P.P.S In case anyone missed the point of this, I think we should lay off the cIOSCORP/DarkcORP bashing.
    cIOSCORP does not brick wiis, noobs do.

    P.P.P.S I may be drunk, but I still ....

    I think cIOScorp may have recieved a bad name long before it was called cIOScorp, but you are right, it is a hack none the less, and can brick just like any other hack.

    EDIT-
    The bottom line is, homebrew is at your own risk, don't blame anybody but yourself if you brick your Wii. And I'm sure this disclaimer is included with every homebrew app, including cIOScorp.

    Exclamation Clarafication... hopefully.

    Thanks for your support mauifrog!

    I 100% agree with what you posted!

    What I really find annoying is that you guys (along with many others) are still relating cIOSCORP v3.x/DARKCORP to thew older v1/v2 versions...

    They are not related!

    v1/v2 were indeed crap and dangerous, and were made by softmii team. They used old versions of IOS, they didn't change their custim DIP module from shared to non-shared which would have caused compatibility issues, they only updated their version once, and they didn't give any documentation or support to anyone. No wonder so many people bricked with v1/v2.

    Even I despise v1/v2 and softmii team!

    I managed to figure out how to make my own CORP, all by myself, and I made sure not to repeat the same mistakes they did. as of v3.4, the DIP modules are not shared between IOS. As of v3.6, any unnecessary IOS were removed.

    And whenever there's a problem for somebody, I try to fix it. And I support anyone who's having trouble.

    Please do NOT associate CORP v3.x/DARKCORP with softmii's crap!

    That's seems to be the main reason why people like to bash it.
    I have not had a single report ever of anyone bricking due to cIOSCORP v3.x/DARKCORP.
    Not a single brick!

    One of reasons of the name change was to try to break the association of v3.x/DARKCORP from softmii's versions.

    And DARKCORP is even safer then any other version during installation, due to the new installer. After downloading/finding-on-SD the correct files, it then proceeds with installation, one at a time. It will prepare the IOS (patch it) when it says "Creating cIOSxx from IOSxx vyyyy", then install it, then go to the next IOS. During the prepare phase, it's perfectly safe to cut the Wii's power. There's a prepare phase for every IOS, and the full installer installs 25 patched IOS, meaning there's 25 chances for a noob to back out if they so choose. Installing DARKCORP is about as safe as installing a patched sysmenu IOS, or installing preloader/priiloader, or installing any other system-altering mod, except for boot2 modifications, which are even more dangerous.

    And then there's the big disclaimer in all caps in the installer, which stays on screen during the entire duration of installation, meaning there should be PLENTY of time for a noob to read it, should they skip the README. And if they refuse to read anything, then it's their own fault. Like mauifrog said, if this happens to be the case, then the idiot "Mr. refuse-to-read" user should be bashed, not the modification.

    cIOSCORP v3.x/DARKCORP is a lot cleaner and safer then the horrible v1/v2 that you guys seem accustomed to seeing.

    I hope this big long explanation explains everything regarding cIOSCORP v3.x/DARKCORP and encourages more people to use it, without mixing it up with the fear and danger that CORP v1/v2 contained.

    I treid fstfix'a audiostream fix feature on my CB: The Wrath of Cortex PAL iso, and tried with both wanin's and Wiigator's cmios, and it didn't change anything...
    It appears that there is currently no softmod capable of handling the GC streaming audio and fix it...

    Could the Wii reads the backups better with this cioscorp via the disc channel? I mean, some games have choppy cutscenes.

    I don't think upgrading to this version will change that. I believe that is caused because currently, Softmodded Wii consoles read DVD Backups at 3x (half the speed of the original), this means the game is being loaded slower than it was originally meant to be (6x). Only solution would be to use a USB Loader which loads backups at full speed from a USB HDD.

    I think that IOS257 is the MIOS, that would be for Gamecube use.
