    I have a 3.4 firmware on my Wii but I can't get it to downgrade. I've tried all the IOS and cIOS downgraders but when I load them via homebrew channel it just restarts my Wii any ideas?

    just for others who have this problem...

    when loading IOS16 on a fresh 3.4, you have to use the modified WADManager... CustomWADManager to load it properly... THEN you can continue with the downgrade...

    there are several THOUSAND threads that tell you how to do this...

    Right Behind You! Uh Oh!
    also for testimony...

    I used arunningpirates guide and was able to downgrade a 3.4 to 3.2 (installed preloader,corps,softmii2.0) then when i was away the girl went to shop channel and updated it BACK! to 3.4! (this was a week ago) luckly i was able to YET AGAIN downgrade the FW to 3.2 and install the various hacks but I thought it was notewrothy that using his phenominal guide I was able to do this without a hitch!

    3.4 to 3.2 to 3.4 and back to 3.2 ...Even after a "accedental or girlfriend envoked upgrade" i was able to fix it! thanks for the awesome tutorials this is easily the best site resource for wii homebrewers on the net!
