Are you sure, you want to downgrade your Wii ?
Very often, downgrading is a bad idea, Homebrew and Backup Loading work fine in every System Menu version (from 3.2 to 4.2 except Korean).
If I were you, I'd ask myself if I really need to do that.
Then installation of cioses 249,250,222 and 223 isn't done with wad manager but with dedicated dol installers that can be launched from the HBC.

You don't need to downgrade. Just use xzxero's 4.2 hacking guide, stickied in the 'Wii Hacking' section of this forum. It's the simplest one you'll find anywhere. Don't install CIOSCorp, listed in the extras section though. I think it would be too dangerous for you to attempt, and unnecessary for what you want to do. After you finish the guide, look in the backup loaders section of this forum and obtain the HD loader of your choice. Wiiflow 1.1 is my personal favorite, but there are a number of good ones. Have fun.

Also, since you're already on 4.2, you can skip the "Update to 4.2" section of the guide, and skip right to the "modify 4.2" section. Do everything it says, being careful to follow every word.
