    Its because you should try and downgrade from v4 to 3.4


    You will find ALL necessary files to do this & more
    Included are:--

    ISO loaders
    WAD installers
    CIOS downgrader
    Homebrew Channel 1.0.1 (latest as of Dec30th)
    Internet Channel
    Shopping Channel
    Included Twilight hacks:
    twilight-hack-v0.1-beta1 (up tp 3.3)
    twilight-hack-v0.1-beta2 (3.4 only)
    Plus detailed Readme's

    Step 1-- Unrar it all

    Step 2-- Put all files onto an SD card. 512Kb - 1Gb - 2Gb will do. NOT a 4Gb!
    Put all apps in 1 folder - all wads in another

    Step 3-- Install HBC on your Wii

    Go to Hidden Content if you need more help


    If you need help installing the homebrew channel, & to use the twilight hack. Just google it!
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    DOWNGRADING WITH 3.3 OR 3.4 to 2.0 upwards in U-E-J regions.
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Note that the best firmware for Homebrew is 3.2 so let's do it!

    After the HBC is installed on your Wii, you can now start the downgrade.

    Step 1-- Make sure you have put all files on the SD card. 512Kb - 1Gb - 2Gb will do. NOT a 4Gb!
    Put all apps in 1 folder - all wads in another

    Step 2-- Extract the wii downgrade.rar and drag the "apps" and "wad" folder on the SD card.

    Step 3-- Using the Homebrew Channel, open WAD Manager 1.3

    Step 4-- Press A on the Wii Mote once. The Wii should detect a SD Card.
    Press A again to see a list of WADs on the SD Card.
    Use the D-Pad to select IOS16-64-v257-prod.wad. Press the + to install the WAD.
    Once it has installed the WAD, press the Home button to restart you Wii.

    Step 5-- Using the Homebrew Channel, open Custom WM.
    Now using the same method as in Step 4, install the cios_fix.wad.
    Once it has installed the WAD, press the Home button to restart you Wii.

    Note: If that fails to install, just use 'Wad Manager 1.3'

    Step 6-- Using the Homebrew Channel, open IOS Downgrader.
    Just follow the instructions and wait until it finishes installing the necessary IOSs.

    NOTE: You're Wii does require connection to the Internet otherwise it won't work. Same for the next step.
    If you do have a Internet connection and you get errors while it's installing the IOSs, just restart the Wii and try again.

    Step 7-- Using the Homebrew Channel, open Install Shop IOS51.
    Say Yes to installing the IOS51 and Yes to patching a fix but No to the
    Wii Shop Channel (it shouldnt matter if you install but it wont make any difference). I installed it & it works fine.

    Step 8-- Using the Homebrew Channel, open WAD Manager 3.

    Step 9-- Now you should be able to install WADs. Try installing the WAD MANAGER V3.wad

    Step 10-- Downgrade to 3.2 or whatever firmware you want using cISO Downgrader 1.2.

    Make sure you choose the right region or you will semi-brick your Wii.
    (U = USA, E = Europe, J = Japan)
    Use this file with the HBC to downgrade. Make sure you put it in a folder in the 'apps' folder.
    You can also use AnyRegion Changer to downgrade. (though not tried it)

    Your Wii is now downgraded!

    Once ALL this is done you will be able to Up/Down Grade in the future without using Step 7

    Simply :
    Install HBC
    Up/Down Grade
    Install the IOS files & Loaders
