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)

Possible mistake regarding lauch dates on SW 1.4.1

Basically the system.log on my DSi states the following

Days of board initialization/setup from 29 of july of 2010 to 30 of july of 2010, installed software version 1.4.1, according to this wiki that version was released on September of that year, i mean 2 months after these dates... did they had access to software versions before being publicly released? is there a way to see the build date/release date of different software versions?

I don't want to change the wiki info before asking to see if there's a reason to this contradiction tbh

Release-dates here are for the CDN release, nothing more (see here, or ninupdates for newer sysupdates). "is there a way ..." Version_Data perhaps, would have to check that for 1.4.1 yourself though. Yellows8 (talk)
