    what can i use better.. ios downgrader or cios downgrader since i update to 3.4U a while ago...
    and i want 3.2U but i dont want to brick my wii so....

    1) is it safe?

    2) do i need to install anything before(i did the twilight hack already and i have HBC too)

    3) is it neccasary to downgrade??

    Then you should have asked in the noob thread....

    1) As safe as they can possibly be, there are no guarantee's here.

    2) You'll need a cIOS for the cIOS downgrader

    3) You need to find out for yourself. We don't know *WHY* you are looking to downgrade.

    IOS downgrader first, then cIOS downgrader for sysm 3.2

    use preloader instead then of starfall. it does pretty much the same stuff, but you don't need tp and twilight hack to do a recovery procedure.

    Really? I did at first cIOS downgrader and then IOS Downgrader.

    Is your way (first ios then cios) safer?

    So this is what i understand:

    IOS downgrader = make your IOS hackable
    cIOS downgrader = Systemmen├╝

    i think it is the other way around [​IMG] ....

    Cios downgrader makes your ios hackable
    ios downgrader downgrades the shitty 3.4 firmware

    i did not try to run ios downgrader first.. and i "think" it ends up with an error if i ran it before cios downgrader.


    And if you downgrade make sure you have the right region for your wii
    (but i guess you already knew)

    Rom Thunder no:

    IOS Downgrader downgrades all your IOS

    cIOS Downgrader downgrades your cIOS.

    Run IOS Downgrader first, if not, it will result to an error in cIOS Downgrader.

    why do total noobs still exist??! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    i,m really sure i ran cios first

    otherwise i wont tell...(i must say that a tutorial say's to run the ios downgrader first... but ok)

    but i think you did'nt understand his question right

    [PIKA 9323]
    IOS downgrader = make your IOS hackable
    cIOS downgrader = Systemmen├╝

    he did'nt meant in which order he has to run those(and thats what i replied to)
