    Downgrading?

    Hey guys,

    I did look around for a thread relating to this, but couldn't find one..

    I just got a new console,

    Wii 4.2U Unmodded (It ran an update)

    I've been reading lots of threads, on this site, and others.
    Half of them seem to advise downgrading for an easier softmod.
    I see a guide for both ends of firmware mods. (3.1-4.1 / 4.2)

    What should I do?




    Thanks!

    There is no SAFE way to downgrade from 4.2 as of yet. There are some nasty stories about people trying to downgrade from 4.2 and bricking. Your best bet is to re-mod the system with the 4.2 guide.

    I'm not sure as of yet. I've heard of a few people able to downgrade their systems successfully. For me it's too much of a risk to try yet.

    Yes m8 dont blame ya but I was given the link for the files from a well respected member from the "other place" so took the chance because Ive a modchip fitted as well as softmod and didnt realise at the time that 4.2 disabled region free on modchips.

    I dont see why people want to downgrade their wii's from 4.2.
    Their is an easy way to mod a virgin 4..2. The only differance is the Trucha Bug restorer. I have modded several 4.2 Wii's with no probs at all, in fact I have upgraded some from 3.4 to 4.2 then modded them so they have the latest firware on it.
    The only problems I am geting is modding a new wii with the DVD3-2 drive in it but thats another story

    4.2 can be a pain depending on how rooted the stub is, some 4.2 systems have literally take me 20 minutes...some have taken me a few hours.
