    I'm working on downgrading a Wii purchased this year but I'm not sure if I should at this point.

    System version- 3.3U
    Serial No.- LU627.....

    I was able to install BootMii using BannerBomb but could only install as an IOS. Since this Wii has a newer boot1 how can I tell if it also has boot2v4? Will I be able to safely downgrade it to 3.2 without a brick? [​IMG]

    Thanks for your help everybody!

    why downgrade? 4.0 has everything that you can do on 3.2.

    I have BootMii (boot2) and after I upgraded to 4.0 I received a ton of system corrupt messages. I downgraded back to 3.2 and have had no problems since.

    Since this Wii does not have that option of reverting to an NAND backup I would prefer 3.2 for now.

    How do you update to sysmenu 4.0?

    You use prealoder?

    You use other sysmenu hacks?

    Is there an modified IOS for the sysmenu?

    Why would you want to install SM 4.0 and not 4.1? If you're going through the trouble, get 4.1-- It's in the guide (Also has 4.0 if you're still feeling like it). You will also need newer preloader hacks for the SM, of course (also in the guide). Did you look at the guide at all? =\

    I know. I read and fully understood your post. You are asking how to install 4.0. I am now, in return, asking you why you would want to install 4.0 and not 4.1. Read my post again.

    ?

    Deviyl, pls, i ask HOW(in german it's "wie") ectowii update to 4.0 and not why and also i didn't suggest to update to sysmenu 4.0.

    I didn't say he should update to 4.0, i ask only HOW ectowii update because he have a problem with sysmenu 4.0 and i think if he use a tool like **** it could be the problem.

    Well honestly, I have no idea what you're asking. I've told you HOW. And I've also ASKED WHY you would want to update to 4.0 and not 4.1. From here on, if you still don't see, or I still haven't answered you, then your English isn't working right.

    Oh. The added did makes a lot more sense. =)

    To the OP, after you answer this question, you should go back to the guide and follow it. It works. So if you didn't get it to work, you may have missed a step somewhere.

    HiBit:

    I used waninkoko's 4.1 updater on my Wii. Perhaps I should have used the official Nintendo method...

    The consensus seems to be don't bother downgrading to 3.2 and instead go straight to 4.1
