    Hello there

    I have been softmodding wii's for some time now (up to v4.2 disc and usb) and bumped into a friend that needed to softmod his updated 4.3E wii that was previously softmoded but now only legit games work.
    I know that currently theres little way to fully hack it so basically I'm asking if there is a way to downgrade it to version 4.1/4.2 without bricking.
    any help would be greatly apreciated

    thanks

    As far as I know, I THINK you can downgrade to 4.0-4.2 on a 4.3 machine as the IOS are basically the same. If he was softmodded before, he should still have a cIOS on there somewhere. Check if he has IOS250 or IOS224 on there.

    However, I would NOT suggest to downgrade. Maybe someone else will tell you to but I do not recommend this. Just hack it, install HBC with a different TitleID using a WAD and a WAD Manager. Or better yet install Priiloader and disable the check for the HBC and all the other stuff.

    You can install IOS41 (oldest revision from NUS) and use it with TBR to downgrade IOS15 and patch IOS36. Once that is done, use dop-Mii to downgrade IOS34 to its previous revision (i.e. the revision that came with 4.2). Then install Priiloader and enable the "No Delete HAXX, DVDX, JODI, DISC and DISK" hack. Finally run HackMii Installer and install HBC.

    Do all this via Indiana Pwns. Apparently you need to use LoadMii to load DOLs, as Indiana Pwns can only load ELFs, so load LoadMii via Indiana Pwns with all the other tools on your SD card, and run them in the right order.

    Assuming that you most likely have an LU64+ wii, you can downgrade to SM 3.4 if you want to. You can also actually downgrade all the way to 3.2 IF you use xflaks NUSAD, but only if you use that. I still would not try it if I were you because you seem too noob to understand whats happening and what can go wrong. But yes you can downgrade to 4.2 or 4.2 as lng as you delete the stubs first and replace them with functional versions of those IOS's.
