    Before continuing, please note that downgrading doesn't provide anything good, except the ability to run the Twilight Hack. If you really want to downgrade to 3.2X safely, then you can fellow this guide. I am not responsible of any trouble, or damage done to your Wii in any way.

    Instead, hack your Wii with ModMii.

    = Requirements =
    = Steps =
    MAKE A NAND BACKUP! If anything goes awry you can recover!
    1. Open ModMii ( Usually Located at C:/ModMii )
    2. Enter theses strings of text into ModMii, pressing enter on each: 1, 3.2X ( Remplace X by your Wii's Region, like J, K, E ), 30, D, Y.
    3. When the download is finished, press O
    4. Copy the WAD Folder into the root of your SD Card
    5. Insert your SD Card into your Wii then boot your console.
    6. Load MMM with the Homebrew Channel or equivalent.
    7. Reload to Custom IOS 236 / Custom IOS 249 ( or any Custom IOS that have NAND access )
    8. Go to "Wad Manager", then install "IOS30v16174(IOS60v6174[FS-ES-NP-VP-DIP])"
    9. After it is done, install "SystemMenu_3.2X_v289"
    10. Go back to your System Menu
    11. Congratulation, you just did a ( hopefully ) successful installation of SM 3.2!
    Now, make sure you reinstall Priiloader, as you will loose it upon installing 3.2!
    Make sure you block updates and disc-based updates with Priiloader!

    It strikes me as odd that one would downgrade in order to to make use of the Twilight Hack, as alluded to by the OP, when one has to use an alternative exploit to downgrade in the first place.

    Edit: It also strikes me as odd that the guide is essentially just "use Modmii."

    Well, ModMii do not display any options to directly downgrade to 3.2, and there's almost no guide for downgrading on the internets, AND if there are some, they come from untrusted websites.
    So honestly i also did it, and i am posting the way to.
    And it's not just essentially ''use modmii''.
