This homebrew application makes permanent changes to the Wii's NAND, thus, this application should be used with caution.

It is recommended to have a NAND backup with either BootMii as boot2 or Priiloader with BootMii as IOS installed before proceeding with the usage of this application.

Dop-IOS MOD is a modification of the application Dop-IOS that allows you to choose which IOS you would like to use to install other IOSs (with the trucha bug if you like), channels, and system menus. It also allows you to install a patched IOS 36 to use to install fakesigned content if you don't have any other usable IOSs like Trucha Bug Restorer does.


While the original Dop-IOS let you install other IOSes, it used IOS2491 to do it. As IOS249 is primarily a piracy IOS (which is in some cases is itself illegal) many people felt a certain resentment toward it's exclusivity on which the authors have no comment.

A better solution for all users would've been to allow users to select which IOS they use to install other IOSs. This is what Dop-IOS MOD does.

Since fulfilling its original purpose, Dop-IOS MOD has brought many new and improved features to it's Dop-IOS base (or "core" if you will) including GameCube controller support, the ability to install channels, and the ability to install the system menu, and many, many exciting features.


This application has the ability to brick your Wii if misused. If this occurs, YOU are responsible because you used the application. The authors take no responsibility for any harm done to your Wii by this application.
