    I'm searching someone with a boot2v4 (lu64/65) Wii with some kind of brick protection to test a program that allows to install an "outdated" ios on those new wiis.

    Download this :
    http://www.2shared.com/file/6934557/422d155f/boot.html

    put IOS31-64-v1037.wad on root of sd card (use NUS downloader to get it).

    This program is a modified code of wad manager to install this wad, but it modifies the tmd/tik (in memory) before installing.

    You will be asked multiple times to press "A", so do it.
    At the end, you will see "press a to load ios", do it.
    If you see a dark screen, it's bad, else, it's good.
    It means that this old IOS is succesfully installed and working.

    You can still install a newer version with dop-ios if you want

    And the point of this is? You can easily just use TBR to get trucha bug in IOS36, then use the dop-IOS MOD running off IOS36 to trucha patch every other IOS. And that works just fine on LU64+ Wiis. There is no need for this.

    Gambia, The
    Is this meant for use or just to get to know if it's possible? I hope not for use. Also does this require trucha, or does it use the downgrade code that is used in TBR and the IOS35 downgrader?

    Asshole?

    this may prevent some brick if people try to downgrade their wiis (or prevent some problems with games using old version of ios and using like dop-ios then installing old ios).

    It needs in fact an ios36 with trucha bug

    Again, why is this necessary? People can already get a full set of trucha IOS on an LU64 wii no bother. this is unneeded

    Code:
    static fatDevice fd = { "sd", "Wii SD Slot", &__io_wiisd };
    Fat_Mount(&fd);
    FILE * fp = fopen("sd:/IOS31-64-v1037.wad", "rb");
    if (!fp)
    printf("File cannot be read\n");
    else
    ret = Wad_Install(fp);
    
    printf("Press A to load (IOS_ReloadIOS) this ios !\n");
    Wpad_WaitButtons();
    
    IOS_ReloadIOS(31);
    printf("If you see this message, everything is fine !\n");
    Wpad_WaitButtons();
    wad_install is from wad_manager with the addition of these 2 patches :

    Does this make Boot2v4+ console can downgrade to 3.2u?
    If yes, I will try it for you ^^
    If not, why we should do with this coz we can run backup disc with any loader or us cioscorp with preloader on 4.1U.

    this dol will only downgrade ios31, to be less brick friendly.
    Even if this works, i'm not sure if it will works on every ios and in system menu

    You wont be able to downgrade system menu, and you wont need to. There is nothing that can be done on 3.2 that cant on 4.1. Just restore trucha bug to every IOS on 4.1 and you can do anything you could do on 3.2, maybe even more. And you can trucha patch the latest IOS, so there is no need for downgraded IOS. Especially seeing as this requires a trucha IOS. If you already have a trucha IOS, just run dop-IOS and patch every IOS.
