What do you need cIOS's for?
I don't know what there for, what they do, all I know is that its a very risky procedure. Does your console need a hardmod for it? Or can you do it softmodded?
Also, I just recently got my paws on a copy of Zelda TP and when I got home, I used the TP Hack to install the Homebrew channel.
I didnt understand how that 10min limit worked, if I would have taken longer than that, would I have not been able to do the TP hack agian? That was confusing, I didnt understand it, I just installed the Homebrew channel beta 9 and was happy as could be, I got a copy of dvdx and mplayer, and of the FCEUGX.
