1. should I do anything with my current ios60 that I installed the ios60-patched.wad? Yeah it appeared to have no noticeable effect, but I'd hate to get burnt later on...
and really the answer I really would like to know...
2. What is IOS60 used for? I installed ios60-patched.wad on ios60 so that had to do something. It replaced one cIOS with another cIOS but what was the difference? If IOS60 even used for anything important?
perhaps I should just shrug it off and move on but I kind of like to know the inner workings of things at least on some fundamental level. I don't have much interest in writing custom IOS's but i am interested in change logs or file histories.
anyways thank again Tealc... I clicked the thumbs up for you.
from what i can see ios60 is used in system menu 4+ to play the newer games just like ios70 is used now for systems 4.2

IOS60 is actually a System IOS, that being a critical part of the running of a Wii when it's at 4.0. Remove it and you brick. A Wii System Menu is made up of two files, the IOSxx.wad and the System Menu.wad. The System Menu wad is over 20MB, while the IOS is just over 1MB. System Menu runs on IOS, that's why it's always installed first.
IOS60patched is an IOS60 file that has been patched, in this case to enable copying of 'pirate' VC/Wiiware games from Wii to SD card.
Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.
