To downgrade, just follow the guide.
Starfall installs a bunch of system menu hacks. I use it to install region free WADs, skip the disk update check, and if my wii gets bricked, i can press Y on a gamecube controller to unbrick it

Gonna get a GC-controller too then ,....
But for my knowledge... If I downgrade from 3.4 to 3.3 ... homebrewchannel will work too with the wiigator-loader
Are there any downside running a 3.2 firmware... like games not working or so?

Hey all. Need some Help.
I make it this far: Step 6 - Using the ‘Homebrew Channel’, open ‘IOS Downgrader’. Just follow the instructions and wait until it finishes installing the necessary IOSs.
Then it usually finishes the first IOS download, starts on the second and ends up just sitting at there.... No errors, Network active, etc. but no progress. I let it run for 8 hours or so, but no progress.... I can restart the wii by powering it off, but then starting the process again produces the same results.
No errors, but no progress. Did I miss something?

Hi there. I am trying this downgrade thing and IOS16-64-v257-prod.wad will work but cios_fix.wad gives me a -2043 (or something) when I try to load it through wadmanager 1.3
Anyone seen this?? I have 3.4 (to get some Wiiware working.
