    My friend has an older Wii (US version) that he could install bootmii as boot2. He has never done any hacking on his Wii and just after he updates his Wii to 4.3 he asks for my help. Is there someway he could downgrade to 4.2?

    Is it possible to install bootmii as boot2 on his wii, then use my own nand backup from my wii (which is backed up to 4.2) and install it on his wii? Or will this cause conflict?

    Thanks

    Maybe he wanted to demonstrate that OP didn't bother for simple google search?

    Nope, it searches for that only on Wiihacks; it's not just a simple Google search of "4.3 Virgin softmod guide"

    Thanks for the help but after reading that looks like I am just gonna wait for the hackers to release some updates. It seems really risky right now to downgrade.

    @ OP, use NUS Auto Downloader to mod and downgrade virgin 4.3E or 4.3U Wii's

    the method is sound, the only part of the mod that is 'risky' is when u are installing the 4.2 system menu wad (u must make sure that IOS70 in installed successfully beforehand). Everything else, even if something does go wrong, u wont brick.
