    My friend is running 4.0 on his Wii.
    He didn't install the homebrew channel or any homebrew related files (including cios files) before he updated to 4.0.

    Is there any way for him to be able to downgrade his Wii, or at least be able to play game backups?

    Bannerbomb + hackmii installer from bootmii.org. Use that to install new hbc and bootmii (to boot2 if possible, then change the name of the bootmii folder on your sd card after that installs if you don't want the bootmii menu to pop up all the time.)

    Then follow the OFFLINE section of that doing steps 1-3, A-B, and 9-10. From that point you can run any backups or use the usb loader and what not. You should also be able to run the online portion of the guide after that to downgrade/upgrade again to be fully up to date with everything working. I suggest you have a NAND backup made through bootmii when you get that though just in case though.
