    Don't downgrade. Hack it with modmii.

    you can downgrade via modmii (though there's very little benefit, if any at all)....run the wizard, tell Modmii you're on 4.3 and you want to be on 4.1 (don't go less than 4.1; it will recommend you stay on 4.3 FYI)....it'll then download all the necessary things to successfully get you to 4.1....

    make sure you reinstall priiloader following the 4.1 install (Modmii should instruct this as well)....

    Shouldn't you be solving the issues you have in those other threads you created first, smashdude? [​IMG]

    "Only update using the official update procedure. Downgrading or installing patched updates is unsupported, dangerous, and may permanently brick your Wii."

    Besides, why do you want to do this?

    you can do it with modmii, but your not gunna gain anything. ur just gunna risk your wii by trying to downgrade it, and the risk is pretty high

    I can never work this out either. I have always run the latest fimwares on my Wii and never had nay issues. Why downgrade?

    Doesn't 4.3U block region free and force you to your console's native region games? I think I'm on 4.2U and I can run every region on mine.

    If this has been bypassed somehow, that is cool. But I haven't heard anything. Though I was fully unaware until yesterday that you can soft mod a 4.3U.

    aw man...a pointless thread on it's way to being forgotten and you gotta go give it life....just let this die!

    ...but to answer you Q: 4.3 does in fact do what you say....but....priiloader for 4.3 with the appropriate hacks enabled undo these NO-FUN features and can pretty much return it to all that 4.2 or 4.1 are.... (re-enable Bannerbomb, prevent HAXX/JODI deletion, Region Free Everything, etc. etc.)....

    with the modern hack tools we have at our disposal, the differences between 4.1, 4.2, and 4.3 are effectively negligible....

    now you've heard, so welcome back out from under your rock....

    If I wanted to downgrade to 4.1, I'd first install the official 4.3. Then (after following the hack any Wii guide) I'd delete the stubbed IOS60 and replace it with the latest, non-stubbed version patched with the trucha bug, then I'd install system menu 4.1. IN THAT EXACT ORDER.

    Why would I? I wouldn't. But the only reason would be if for some other strange reason, you didn't want to install priiloader at all, and you have a mod chip that takes care of region free for you (but doesn't do that on 4.2+)

    The region free hack only works on retail discs.
