    Need Help Downgrading My 4.3u Wii

    I'm having problems installing some WAD files so I want to downgrade my 4.3u Wii. I have BootMii installed and I have backed up my Wii. I just tried downgrading to 3.4u with DOP-IOS MOD (DOP-Mii freezes on startup and Dop-Mii Wii Brew Edition gives me a "Exception (DSI) Occurred" error when trying to downgrade - so I'm using Dop IOS MOD) and it bricked my Wii. After that I restored it with BootMii and thought, "Well maybe it's because I took such a big leap down..." so I tried downgrading to 4.2u and it bricked again; I restored it again. There must be something I have to do first... but I don't know what to do. Someone please help, I'm a little bit open to taking risks knowing that I successfully restored my Wii twice with BootMii, so any suggestions are welcome. I don't really have a preference to any version, as long as it's lower than 4.3.

    So according to your guide, I should install ios16, cIOS30, cIOS36, cIOS50, cIOS60, and cIOS70? And after that I try to downgrade again and it won't brick?

    edit: I just realized that what I just posted was in a reply to your guide (I pressed Ctrl + f and typed downgrade and it led me there). I didn't see anything in your guide about downgrading, but now I'm thinking that I should just format my Wii and start over, because your guide looks organized and then I'll have a clean homebrew with no problems.

    If I format, will I somehow be able to choose what firmware I want to be on?

    no need to format your wii just follow the guide and it will over right the old softmod


    downgradeing option
    Select the folder "System Menu 4.1" -press A
    Never Uninstall IOS, or SM you will brick your wii
    Never Uninstall IOS, or SM you will brick your wii
    Press (1) to "Install all Wads" - Press A
    3 wads should install without error
    "Press any button to continue"

    Be sure all 3 wads install, very important
    This installs a version patched SM, which I recommend. If this bothers you, don't do it.
    Never Uninstall IOS, or SM you will brick your wii

    Okay, so since I already have Homebrew and BootMii installed and have a nand backup, I should start from the beginning of Chapter 2?

    I did it I just followed this awesome guide

    I tried it before but my Wii froze whenever I tried to start up DOP-Mii, so I gave up. But I just now read through the replies on that guide to find out that DOP-Mii v13 fixes that problem (doesn't freeze on startup on 4.3 Wii's)

    So for anyone who needs to downgrade from 4.3 to 4.1, follow this guide exactly and use DOP-Mii v13, instead of the version provided in the guide.

    Wii u

    It makes the task a lot more easy and is very convenient as to those people who get to have the cutting task everyday. I could also have it and even used it on fixing some things at home without asking the help of a professional cutting attendant. I can even more save which I see as very convenient.
