    They're both pretty similar.

    But firmware downgrader can downgrade/upgrade to any System Menu up to 4.0 and can even change your region.

    Hahaha you know... I was wondering the same thing. I think this will replace cIOS Downgrader just like Savegame Manager will replace Savegame Extractor-Savegame Installer. But that is just me guessing.

    What it does is downgrade or upgrade to any Wii firmware while still maintaining the trucha bug. Cios downgrader could only go up to 3.4 and didn't maintain the trucha bug. Basically it lets you go to any Wii firmware while still maintaining everything homebrew related (like WAD installations).

    IOS Downgrader = Downgrades your IOSes to a trucha bugged state

    cIOS Downgrader = Downgraders/Upgrades your System Menu

    So firmware downgrader now replaces IOS downgrader, cIOS downgrader & firmware updater 4.0 in one. Someone please confirm this?

    no, they serve different purposes Olliepop2000.

    It depends on what you want to accomplish that's all.

    If I want to update to 4.0, can I use this instead of the firmware updater 4.0 + the ios60 patch?
