    Good place to start is the search function on the site.

    I also had this in my copy and paste ... lucky.

    Hardware:
    You need one of 4 LG DVD-Roms.

    LG GDR-8161b
    LG GDR-8162b
    LG GDR-8163b
    LG GDR-8164b

    To Read:
    RawDump 2.1

    To Write:
    ImgBurn, a freeware program very similar to CloneCD.

    Directions:
    Start RawDump 2.1. Insert the original into the LG DVD-Rom. Close the drive. Click "Start Dump".

    In 2 to 3 hours, you'll have a game image, or .ISO. When the dump is complete, right click on the file and go to properties. Make sure the image is exactly 4,699,979,776 kbs. If it's not, it's a bad read, re-dump it.

    Also, Super Smash Bros and Mario Kart are dual layer discs, so these will be larger than the kb stated above.

    Write the .ISO in ImgBurn.




    Go here for the backup loader:

    It's part of the linked file in the first post.

    How did you downgrade? Did you find a good tutorial you can share?

    Thanks,

    Find & load the "cIOS downloader" wad into your Homebrew channel. Click on the Homebrew channel and click the "cIOS Downloader" program. Be VERY careful - choose firmware version 3.2U and load it. 3.2U = USA/Canada, 3.2E = Europe, 3.2J = Japan. Choosing the wrong region for your Wii console can brick it, or lock it up. Follow prompts until done and Press any key on the Wii Remote to restart the console. This program is NOT the same as IOS Downgrader. The custom IOS Downgrader (may also be seen as cIOS Downloader) allows you to upgrade or downgrade to a chosen firmware version, which in this case is 3.2U. The reason version 3.2 is so popular is partially because versions after this one had a security patch that made Homebrew applications and playing backed-up games much more difficult, and almost as importantly ver 3.2 is required to run Starfall. Starfall is important because it is at this time one of the only ways to fix a partially bricked Wii. It is also handy for skipping disk updates.

    Hope this helps

    No, In any case, You will have more functionality with the lower firmware. It won't delete and channels etc.

    Go to: Unlimited Wii Downloads : Official Site : Top wii website for Games, Movies, TV Shows, Music and much more! for a database (need to pay the membership but it's well worth it) of games, movies, etc to download.

    ONLY use BurnAware Professional to burn games, on the PC and Disk Utility for the Mac.

    To downgrade your WII, etc need to buy: Homebrewinstaller, Homepage will give you EVERYTHING you need to play games, downgrade info and works perfectly!

    I have a question, does anyone know how to play 2009 games on a hacked 3.2u version wii. It tells me i need to update the wii version when I want to play Tiger Woods 2009 (do I have to uninstall the Twilight Hack EVERTIME I want to play new games)? There has to be an easier way.

    Thanks
