Is this guide good?
I have a LU34 with firmware 3.4U. I was looking around on how to soft mod my wii so I can make backups of my original games. This guide has a downgrader. The guide in question is downgrading from 4.0U to 3.2U I believe. Am I ok to use the file to downgrade my 3.4U?
guide in question:
"Do these steps to get HBC and cIOS249 on your Wii Once you have these the Wii is pretty much your oyster, and you can downgrade, use USB/DVDR loaders, Preloader etc
Make sure WiiConnect24 is off!

1: Download this rar and unpack it onto root of an SD card.
2: Put the SD card in wii, go to Wii Options, than go to Data Management > channels > SD Card then you will get a message saying "Load /boot.dol?" select 'Yes' and CMDVDX34 will run, then pick "Downgrade IOS35", let it finish its job.
[Input from Zerosyko]: If you get Exception (DSI) has occurred, turn the wii off, go to the system menu, install the update from a game like Brawl or Mario Kart, and try again. I had to try probably a good 10 times.
3: Restart your Wii, take out the SD card, delete the boot.dol from the root and rename 'boot2.dol' to 'boot.dol'.
4: Put the SD card in wii, go to Wii Options, than go to Data Management > channels > SD Card then you will get a message saying "Load /boot.dol?" select 'Yes' and Wad Manager 1.4 will run, use this to install IOS35-64-v1040.wad, If it doesn't work, don't worry it is already installed.
5: Restart your wii and run wad manager 1.4 again using same method as step 4 except this time select IOS35 as the one it should use and install cIOS249 rev9.wad and HBC 1.0.1.wad.
6. Done! You now have HBC and cIOS249 so all your HB should work. If you plan on staying on 4, format your sd card, download this rar and follow instructions in the readme, if you want to downgrade follow this guide and start at 2c.
Now go read and search!!!
If you fancy the USB loader then read this
If you are new to wii hacking read this and this.

MOST RET ERRORS CAN BE FIXED BY USING THE CIOS DOWNGRADER. GOOGLE IT.

It is Dogeggs post.
Thanks a lot!
Since it says for downgrading from a 4.0 Wii and yours is a 3.4 then personally I would not use that guide. I suggest you look at this one http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...der-gamma.html and see what you think as it is for Wii 's using 3.1 - 3.4 and is written by Dogeggs so should be fool proof. Also worth reading through the posts to it if you run into an issue as it might already have been answered.
