    I just needed to check to make sure, as the red Wii's don't have bootmii/boot2 support. Can I downgrade a red 4.3 Wii to 4.1 by just installing IOS60 v6174 and the system menu?

    Yes, but be careful. If you use DOP-Mii and try to downgrade it will install the IOS required first, which makes it a bit easier. Also, whats the point?

    Many newer Wii systems cannot be downgraded for some reason. Attempting to do so will result in a brick. Also, there is no reason to downgrade. As long as you have the Homebrew Channel 1.0.8 installed, you can do anything on a 4.3 Wii that can be done on a 4.1 Wii.

    You can do the same things you could do on 4.1X as you can now on 4.3X, so I honestly don't see the point in performing the downgrade. Though it probably won't be an issue, as long as you don't go below the 4.X menus. Just be extra careful, and confirm all the IOS you'll need to prevent bricking.

    Be sure to install priiloader ad BootMii as IOS. And use DOP-MII to downgrade (first install IOS 61 NON STUB) then proceed with 4.1 downgrading

    It's actually because I want to install a theme that doesn't work so well with 4.3.

    Go for it, just make sure you do a nand backup with bootmii first just in case you somehow make a mistake.
