    Safely Updating Previously Downgraded Wii

    Hello Everyone,
    I searched the forums and looked through the many guides posted here and did not see anything to address my concern. If I missed it somewhere else, please let me know.

    I have an older Wii, and I followed a guide quite some time ago that recommended downgrading it to run homebrew. I believe I was on 4.0 or 4.1 at the time, and the guide had me downgrade to 3.2 (U). This was quite sometime ago, and I cannot find the guide anywhere for reference, but I would like to make sure I didn't leave something in a bad position with the ios's that could result in a brick if someone unknowingly tried to update (wife and kids). Everything is working fine right now, just read a lot of issues related to downgrading and want to make sure I do not have any if possible.

    I have bootmii installed (as boot2), and have 2 nand dumps saved. I know I also installed starfall (disabled health warning and system menu sounds). Below is a DOP-MII report of the installed IOS's. Any advice will be greatly appreciated!

    It's not anything you have done by softmodding your Wii, but that Nintendo's 4.2 system menu update is intended to find and delete the Homebrew Channel and will replace many of the IOSes used in softmodding. The 4.2 update replaces functional IOSes with stubbed nonfunctional versions. So, you do indeed want to prevent your family from accidentally updating the Wii to 4.2.

    You can do this by installing Priiloader and enable the hacks that block both a disc and an online update. There are a number of sources of Priiloader on this site; you should have no problems finding Priiloader. The hack to block online updates is one developed and tested by our own Dogeggs and so I do not believe it is in the wiibrew.org hacks. ini file. Use our own site versions, please.

    Don;t forget to remove your Starfall and its hacks file to avoid a conflict with Priiloader.
