not sure what people downgrade too, all i did was put the homebrew channel on, without wifi, noticed some vc stuff not worked, connected wii to wifi, upgraded firmware to 4.xx whatever it is, then the homebrew asked to download some files i let it, and all works fine.. with wiikey installed..
The moral of the story is, connect it to the net... i think

Cannot get game wads to work
This is my first post here. I read several posts on this sites for 2 weeks before I even touched my Wii and let me say this site is great! Thanks to all who wrote the tutorials and such!
I have a NTSC Wii running 3.2U. I downgraded from 4.0. I got all that stuff done do problem. Downgraded IOS also. Installed backup channel, starfall, GX USB loader all this stuff working fine!
I still cannot play the WAD games. I followed the tutorial. I install the WAD using WAD manager 1.3, restart and the game shows up on the game channel. I click on it and the screen goes full screen and looks ok. When I click start the screen goes black and stays that way for minutes. At this point NO buttons on the remote work. I have to hold down the power button on the Wii to shut if off then restart. I have installed other software WADs no problem. I am thinking it is something simple since I have USB loader working fine, HBC is fine, downgraded to 3.2 fine and getting my butt kicked by WAD games? Any help is appreciated.
