IOS38 - Animal Crossing disc update

Just a bit of info on IOS38 that comes on the Animal Crossing: City Folk disc. Nothing detailed, I merely wanted to know if it was a "safe" update to run, i.e. compatible with homebrew. I briefly looked at all the included on disc update files (by file names anyway), and IOS51 is not included. As well, the update.inf file has 2008/09/17 as it's date. If my understanding is correct, that means this update is pre-october23 (Even though the game came out mid-november). So as long as you have up-to-date homebrew stuff, this update should be "safe" to run and homebrew compatible, correct? So anyway I ran the disc update, it was very fast, and did not cause any of the homebrew problems that the October 23rd update did. (note: My system was up-to-date with Nintendo's updates, until October23, which I did NOT allow to run, obviously.) Just thought I should share this, since not much info is posted about IOS38 /the animal crossing update.--NikoKun 03:21, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

Stub IOS

I found that Stub IOS are IOS which revision are ending with 00 in HEX.

By example ios10 rev768 ( = 0x300) => 0x300 & 0xFF = 0, so it's a stub.

IOS16 rev512 => 0x200, a stub too.--Attila 22:07, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

Good catch! -- Bushing 12:41, 10 June 2009 (UTC)
Good Catch indeed. that kill my hacky method of detecting stubs :) i actually did it by contents & tmd size. stubs have 3 contents (2 shared, 1 of the ios itself) and a fixed tmd size --DacoTaco 08:50, 1 January 2010 (UTC)

IOS4 is a Stub IOS now ???

Isn't IOS4 the IOS used by the update partitions of disc based games? --WiiPower 07:23, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
