    i updated my wii form 3.1 to 4.2 but wanted to go back to 3.1 so i tried to restore a nand backup i made.
    the newest bootmii is installed in boot2 and the simulation before restoring went fine, but now the process hasnĀ“t moved since alsmost an hour and hangs near the end.

    i also have a newer nand backup from 4.2, but i had a lot of disc error problems with that.
    i suppose my wii will brick if i restart during nand recovery, but it seems this is my only option.

    any suggestions on what to do now?

    Well, restarting will make the Wii bricked, but you'll still have BootMii installed and ought to be able to restore your 4.2 dump. It's not like you have much of a choice other than to restart anyway.
