Wii System Menu Downgrade Disc
You will need a drive capable of reading backup discs, patched system menu IOS and a modchip or Darkcorp/Cioscorp installed. If you softmodded your Wii with Mauifrog's guide, this will work.
But thank you very much everyone for the help. For a modding forum, I was very surprised to see the level of 'professionalism' (if you will) that has been demonstrated at this forum. Since posting this thread, I have been reading through the forum for modding resources - and I was again surprised at how awesome the staff and contributors are. Thank you, and keep it up.
