    4.2 = no out of region support for modchip, so NTSC wii will only play NTSC games.

    IS this a brand new wii?

    Then you have several issues.

    The drivekey is not compatible, as you will have a D3-2 drive, only WODE and Sundriver will work.

    You will be unable to play DVD-R, your only options are WODE, Sundriver or Softmod and load from USB HDD.

    4.2 and a hardmod is also a fail as you wont be able to play any out-of-region games.

    It will not allow backups to be read from disk at all. Thus far there is no way around this. The best option for this is to use usb devices and your modchip would not make any difference. Also downgrading is a foolish thing to do especially without the assistance of someone who knows how to do it. Downgrading would not have solved your problems.
