    can you do that with very little risk, or is there another way?

    nothing in boot2. Still can't install preloader even after all of that stuff I did when my friend WAS 4.0 before he stupidly updated to 4.2.

    and this guide says it works with 4.1 and lower

    edit: what do you mean by "what version of boot2 I have?"

    You are correct.

    girugamarc, some 4.0 custom installers will install a stub IOS60, which causes a full brick to your Wii.

    DOWNGRADING IS NEVER SAFE, NEVER WILL BE. I RECOMMEND NOT DOWNGRADING TO AVOID THE HARMFUL CONSEQUENCES THAT YOU MAY FACE.
