Does it use anything similiar to IOS? (--ChuckBartowski)
- No. It has some pieces of IOS (parts of ES) compiled into it, though. -- Bushing 02:40, 12 September 2009 (UTC)
Technically accurate way of describing versions
This page is not correctly describing the versions of the system software components. The user-visible version number (e.g. 1.4) is contained in one title -- HNL_ aka "verdata" -- which is just a bundle with some bits of random data (certs and such). When Nintendo announces that they have updated the "System Menu", they really mean that they have changed that version number as well as one or more other system components, which may not actually include the System Menu itself.
For example, the only changes between "System Menu 1.3" and "System Menu 1.4" were new versions of HNDA (dlplay), HNHA (whitelist), HNKE (DS Sound), HNIE (photo channel). Neither HNAE (System Menu) nor HNFE (Settings menu) were updated. --Bushing 02:53, 12 September 2009 (UTC)
