    Put it on your SD card in a folder called Apps....Sperate folder for downgrader and another for Anyregion changer...Ensure the files for both are renamed to boot.dol then you should be able to detect them and load from HB channel

    the .dol files, you can have just the .dol, but also can have icon.png and meta.xml, so:
    boot.dol
    icon.png
    meta.xml
    are the three you must have

    ROOT???? no no no no no they have to be on SD:/apps/cIOS_Downgrader/boot.dol+icon.png+meta.xml
    BTW don't use any region changer, it has bricked a few Wii's around here..!! [​IMG]

    agreed stick to the custom ios downgrader. pick 3.2 of your region.

    put it in the apps folder just like Ether suggested. It could be run from the root I guess if you prefer to run it with twilight hack, but I think you are better off to stick with HBC [​IMG]

    install a cIOS, if i'm not mistaken you need to in order to use thecIOS downgrader... hence cIOS in the name

    here's cIOS rev. 7(latest version) - http://www.megaupload.com/?d=K9LNBR5Y

    someone feel free to correct me if i'm wrong

    More details please? Did it reboot your wii as soon as you ran it, or did you actually get to the part where you can pick 3.2 as your new firmware? or..?

    the Wii update, you will need to do this fix in order to get a cIOS and then use the cIOS Downgrader...!!! [​IMG]
