    There is no reason to downgrade boot2. If the wii has a vulnerable boot1, it has a vulnerable boot1 and you can install bootmii as boot2. Yours may or may not have a vulnerable boot1. Best way to find out is to run the hackmii installer and install bootmii.

    Not entirely true. it's quite possible to downgrade or upgrade boot2. The problem with messing with boot2 is that if the installed boot2 is fakesigned and you don't have a vunerable boot1 it will fail to load because the signing check will fail. Frankly don't mess with it is the best advice I can give. In other words oficial signed content can be written to any wii's boot2 slot without a problem however fakesigned content can't. If one were to crack Nintendo's encryption keys we could install a boot2 replacement on any wii.
