    Should I remove the Stub IOS'S on my wii??

    Not sure if this is something I really need to do or not, but I noticed its on one of the safeguard/brick prevention things you should do mentioned in this tutorial http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...-never-do.html.

    Now I noticed it had the seperate zip files that you can remove the stub IOS files with.
    Can one of the programs out there do this for me like DOP-Mii or something?? I'm still new to this and not sure what would be the best way to go??

    Now in one of my other post it was mentioned that "a stub ios is a useless ios,
    system menu 4.1 runs on ios60, so if it's a stub." Reffering to my ios 60 being a stub as in my system check here

    Spoiler



    So not sure if I want to do this here. Everything is running great at the moment, and if I dont need to do this I'd rather not in chance of bricking my wii, but I do like to be on the up and end with things when I can , and if its not to much to remove the stub ios's, the ones mentioned in the brick prevention guide by MauiFrog I'd like to try to do that. Of course as mentioned I'm not sure what to do about my ios 60 because its mentioned one of my post and also these were the details I got from DOP-Mii

    Selection Details
    IOS Required IOS60(v6174)
    IOS Installed IOS60(v6400)
    IOSWAD IOS-60-64-V6174.Wad
    System Menu Wad System Menu-Nus-V449.Wad
    Priiloader Detected: Yes

    Note: Installer will install required IOS

    Really not sure if I want to touch any of this stuff, but I guess it couldnt hurt to remove the IOS'S mentioned http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...-never-do.html. Of course know if theres a bit of risk involved doing this I'd rather not, but I guess another safeguard couldn't hurt. Any suggestions or directions on what to do about this would be much help. Thanks in advance to anyone willing to let me know whats up on this.

    NEVER uninstall an IOS below 200. You can brick your wii doing that. I hope you read this before doing anything bad.......

    It says you are on system menu 4.1 but somehow your IOS60 is stubbed? The only valid system menu IOS you have is IOS80 which would suggest you have 4.3 system menu..Did you do something odd maybe that you should tell us about? Your wii should be bricked right now if you have a stub IOS60 and system menu 4.1.
    Damn I suck!!!!

    I was helping him earlier and was puzzled by this too...
    I had him check dop-mii, and it says it'll install the required ios...
    @OP, you don't have to remove the stubs
    since you're probably not going to mess around with the ios's, and everything's working fine, just leave 'em as is

    Thanks for the response guys. Yeah I was just really wondering ya know. I got bootmii and priiloader and everything else I need/want working so I think I'm good, and I dont see any particular reason to remove the stubs, and I have no reason to downgrade my system menu so I should be fine. Just taking extra steps ya know.
