    I'm planning on downgrading my Wii from 4.0E to 3.2E (Which I know how to do)
    My question is, what IOS's can I delete from 3.2E to bring it back to "factory state"?
    Correct me if I'm wrong, I can delete anything above 200, but will there be IOS's from 4.0 left that shouldnt be in 3.2?
    Or will Formating at 3.2 take care of all that for me?

    Many Thanks.

    This is the order of going to a Virgin Wii:


    Use cIOS and IOS Downgraders to return to 3.2
    Install the normal MIOS (if you installed the cMIOS for GC Backups)
    Check that every channel and game disc works properly
    Check again all your games and everything
    Check again all your Channels
    Again check everything
    Use Any Title Deleter to erase IOS249 since you on 4.0 ios 60 61 any of the usb ios 202 222
    if you are sure that everything works, then just perform a FORMAT
    Now your Wii is factory restored


    do it wrong and suffer the consecuences...!!!

    Did everything as menage730 posted. Tested my games as I went along. Now, begin to install HBC on 3.2E, and what doesnt boot.....Twilight Princess! It appears in disc channel but just gives me a black screen with un-synced Wiimotes once I click start. All I can say is Bollocks!!!

    EDIT
    It sounds like IOS9 is gone, but I didnt delete it using AnyTitleDeleter, Is there any game the has an update on Disc that might reinstall it?

    Just Zelda. Its the only game I have that uses IOS9. Is there any game that has an update that installs a newer IOS9 or anything? If IOS9 was really gone, would the game even show in the disc channel? I might try a friends copy of Twilight Princess.

    MarioKart Wii had an update but it didnt fix the problem.

    EDIT: I deleted IOS's 252,253,254,255, 249, 60, 61, 222, 202

    [​IMG] Why did I listen to you WiiMonkey! Guess I'll just wait for this new BannerBomb expolit, hopefully it will enable installation of HBC.
    Is there no Game Disc that installs 3.3 or 3.4 from disc?

    Your IOS9 might be corrupted. Try uninstalling it in AnyTitle Deleter, then pop in Twilight Princess. The update will only install IOS9.

    Wii Music and Animal Crossing have 3.3v1 (no October 23 update).

    Mario Power Tennis and Pikmin have 3.4, sans Wii Shop Channel.

    No IOS254 cant really be really the problem.
    It is just a dummy IOS9 to destroy patchmii.

    I deleted it today too. I will test if my Zelda still works.
    I am PAL btw.

    I dont think you understand correctly. The reason I need Twilight Princess to work is to install HBC, so how would I use AnyTitle Deleter.

    I'll rent a game with 3.4E on it and report back

    If you're on 4.0 already then games with lower firmwares won't ask to install. If you don't have the HBC on 4.0, you can't do anything right now. If you have HBC but no cIOS's on 4.0 you're still screwed for right now.
