IOS and RVL Downloads

Page history last edited by techboy 2 years, 6 months ago

 

IOSes and RVLs marked in red, such as IOS40 v2835 are needed. If you have a collection that include these missing titles, uploading them here would be appreciated.

 

This page is for downloads of IOSes and RVLs. Many of the files on this page come from NUS (Nintendo Update Servers). Some come from the update partition of game DVDs, or if not available elsewhere, be extracted from a wii.

 

IOS is the basic operating software in the Wii. It is the software responsible for controlling the hardware (device drivers), providing security, and performing other tasks such as downloading WiiConnect24 data. All software (with the exception of bootmii) requires an IOS to run. All official software and many homebrew applications specify an IOS to use when they run. If the IOS requested by a title is missing, the program simply hangs at a black screen. While it is not known what IOS officially means, most agree on "Input Output System" or "Internal Operating System". For a more detailed explanation and technical information about IOS, see the Wiibrew page on IOS

 

RVL is just a prefix placed on the name of WADs of system titles (system menu, MIOS, and built in channels). It originates from the Wii's pre-release name "ReVoLution". 

 

If you plan to upload IOSes or RVLs for this table, please ZIP or RAR them. It provides a way to verify the downloads are not corrupt. Corrupt IOSes can lead to strange behavior or bricking if installed.


Want to contribute something that we don't have? Upload it here! (ZIP, 7z, RAR, and WAD accepted. No EXE, ELF, or DOL files please)

 

Can't find it here? Check the MarioCube Repo, they often have the stuff we don't.

Can you just type a list of the IOSes? Since the game is recent, we likely already have them, but it won't hurt to check.

The only titles missing from the database are currently:
* IOS4 v259 and v260
* IOS9 v518
* IOS40 v2835
* System Menu 1.0 (a.k.a System Menu v33)

Have those already. That's a standard 4.1 update.

Red Steel and Wii Sports have IOS9 v516 and Boot2 v2 on them, both of which I already have. Other launch-day titles such as Zelda Twilight Princess also have the same 2 files on them.

Also, there's a 99.9999% chance your friend's wii doesn't have SM 1.0 on it. It'd basically need to be unused since launch day. If it's ever been updated, it doesn't have 1.0 on it.

System Menu v449 is 4.1U, so it's a 4.1 update.

Thanks anyway for the effort!

just want to add some info:

IOS 55 and 53 latest version needed to play monster hunter 3, just if you want to add it to the info, it could be useful.

Thanks for that. Info added. Is anyone able to verify that BOTH of these are required to be up to date?

Want you?

@RAVMN: Sorry I haven't checked the comments sooner. I'm out of town. If you want, you're welcome to upload them. I won't be able to until at least the 10th or 11th. I'm on cell company EV-DO, and the speeds are dial-up. Took half an hour to download firefox...

Also, I'm working on a look-alike replica of SM 1.0...I'm basing it on pics from a launch day wii manual (which shows the 1.0 menu), Wiibrew, an old Nintendo press release, and Google Images. It's mostly finished. Only issues remaining are that I can't remove the SD functions and can't prevent channels from moving.

techboy said

at 6:48 pm on Jul 6, 2010

@RAVMN: OK.

@MarlonHax: You can download it from NUS Downloader. Select Wii No Ma from the database, ensure that the "Version" box is empty (empty version means get latest version), select pack wad, and then start the download.

RVLs are finished.

Added some more information about Weather/News Channels, and reworded the SM 1.0 "Look-alike" description.

Removed a few revisions from earlier today in which I posted a link to something I didn't want posted...sorry about that.

System menus 1.0 and 3.3k have been added. I don't have a mediafire account so if someone wants to repackage these files and then post those links that would be great.

So is it safe to downgrade to Wii menu 1.0 if you have bootmii as boot 2 and a nand backup? I've heard that 1.0 doesn't have SD support, so just wondering.

purkinje said

at 12:36 pm on Aug 16, 2010

You can downgrade to 1.0 and you have bootmii installed as boot2. However, you can't use any exploits to upgrade because there is no SD card access.

Also, you should know that all channels (including HBC) will not show up and your message board will be corrupted.

If you want to mess around with 1.0, you should do the following:
-backup your nand with bootmii before downgrading
-downgrade/mess around with SM 1.0
-restore your nand backup to go back to your original SM

For a newer model wii (LU64 wiis that can only install bootmii IOS) you can only test SM1.0 with SNEEK.

Replaced multiple part RAR of SM 1.0 with a single link.

Also did the following:
* Uploaded IOS48 v3867 and added a description
* Removed the IOSes from the 3.3K archive, and added note indicating 3.3K uses IOS40.
* Added a mention of IOS254 v65281 (latest Bootmii IOS)

I downgraded to Wii menu 1.0 and for some reason I had channels and my message board wasn't corrupted! The only channels I had were Disc, mii, photo, and blank shop, forecast, and news. Also, 1.0 seems to be unhackable without modifying the menu itself it seems the channels are "hardcoded" into the menu. Tried out Smashstack by using bootmii to get to hbc then Neogamma and reinstalled hbc 1.0.8. The result: it did not appear on the menu. So if you want to use homebrew on 1.0, you'll need bootmii as boot2 and hbc ahead of time.

techboy said

at 9:51 pm on Aug 19, 2010

@Ness-Ninten-Lucas: Thanks for this. Channels have major issues on 1.0. In my tests, none of the channels (a few forwarders, HBC, and the Mii Channel) I had installed appeared (had only a disc channel).

Like you said, bootmii/boot2 and HBC need to be there prior to downgrading if you wish to use them. Also, the message board won't go corrupt until you update again, and it doesn't always happen. When you reinstall 4.x you'll get a dialog on the following boot informing you of the condition.

An update was released yesterday...

Changes:
* Deployed latest Korean IOSes to non-Korean wiis to fix the (obsolete) TBR workaround. Use IOS236 installer instead...
* Updated several other (non-Korean) IOSes. The exact changes to the non-Korean IOSes are currently unknown.
* Updated shop to v20. It now uses IOS56 instead of IOS61.

HBC 1.0.7 and newer are NOT affected by the update.

techboy said

at 10:09 pm on Sep 26, 2010

Added some new information that comes from a 9/22 Hackmii post on prelaunch consoles.

We now know another SM, boot2v1, IOS9 v1, BC v0, and MIOS v0 exist.

techboy said

at 4:59 pm on Sep 28, 2010

9/7/10 update's IOSes are now online.

techboy said

at 8:45 pm on Sep 29, 2010

Added Shop Channel v20 and IOS80 v6944 (forgot to link it yesterday...).

techboy said

at 9:45 pm on Oct 7, 2010

Added v1 to the list for MIOS...apparently it shipped on launch-day wiis and original Korean 3.3 units...

Does anyone know where to get the prelaunch titles?

techboy said

at 2:06 pm on Jun 17, 2011

I guess it's about time I update this again...been 8 months and 1 week according to PB.

I've gotten some titles from a launch-day wii, so I now have the entire set except for the Mii channel. MIOS (v1), BC (v1), and News/Weather/Photo channel (v0).

I've also recently obtained most of the RVT (development Wii) titles available (NDEV 1.19, Menu Uninstaller, Disc Check, NMenu, NWC24Editor, WMP Movie Tool, and a few others)...

I'll update the pages when I'm less busy :)

It's like a ghost town here tech 0_o
Apart from the odd what cIOS do I need...etc

techboy said

at 5:26 pm on Jun 18, 2011

Yeah it is...

As you said, most of the comments are either help requests or spam, and page edits consist mostly of Matt6969 updating the Wiiware listing.

Good news is that download counts are healthy :) Most downloaded IOS is IOS249 v65280 (no clue why people want this). Most downloaded channel is Netflix with 5668 downloads.

Also, I got time to try out all those dev channels:
* NMenu is an official wad manager
* NWC24Editor is a tool for downloading files with WC24, sending/receiving Wiimail, changing your wii friend code, and editing the friend roster.
* WMP Movie Tool lets you mark the WM+ movie (that one that runs the first time you play a WM+ game) as watched or unwatched.
* Disc Check and Menu Uninstaller have been around for a while, and do as their names imply.

TBH I haven't touched the Wii in months myself anyway.
I keep it updated for the kids thou.

Be interesting to see where this goes when Wii-U comes along
It's aparently coming with external HDD support from stock.

techboy said

at 3:00 am on Jun 19, 2011

I turned mine on for the first time in a month on Tuesday when I got the dev channels. I don't play too much anymore unless I'm bored...when I do, it's almost always MKWii.

techboy said

at 11:33 pm on Jun 20, 2011

Added launch day versions of several titles, and created a new "IOS Required" column for the RVLs.

when is IOS 62 say purpose unkown?
the channels page says the WiiU update chanel uses it.

techboy said

at 11:51 pm on Nov 22, 2012

It said unknown because the Wii U transfer tool channel wasn't available on the shop at the time. Nobody knew what it's purpose was when I updated this page to include shop v21 and IOS62.

The page has been updated. :)
