    Because you want a downgraded Wii for absolutely no reason? If you don't use the Homebrew Channel or backups there is no need to dowgrade, let alone downgrade without the HBC.


    And yes there are ways but its 10x easier with the HBC because you don't have to start up BannerBomb every time you need to use an app.

    You can downgrade quite easily by using bannerbomb and placing every dol in the root (named boot.dol) when you want to launch it. However, there's no point as the newest HBC works on 4.0 just fine.

    Once you got that installed you can downgrade using this guide. It has both offline and online. It is recommended to do the online method. http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=144835
