found these 2 lots of info for you guys:

First you need to run the REV3 Installer. To do this you will need a copy of a file called IOS37-64-v2070.wad which is the original wii wad file. You can download this from various places. You will have to google for it.

Once you have IOS37-64-v2070.wad you copy that file to the root of your SD card along with the installer, then insert the SD card into your wii and run the installer.

Once you have done this you can run the downgrader itself, copy the downgrader to your SD card then run it on your wii. You will need internet access while you run it.

Right, I just ran this to see what happens and it would seem that in some versions of the homebrew channel you can't see the installer app. So I played around with it and got it working. What follows is how to get this to run if you don't see the file in the homebrew channel.

Copy the file IOS37-64-v2070.wad to the root of your SD card
Create a new folder in the apps folder on your SD card called CustomIOS, so the root of your SD card hould look like this...

IOS37-64-v2070.wad
Apps
../CustomIOS

Then copy the file cIOS37_rev3-Installer.dol to the CustomIOS folder you just created, then rename the file to BOOT.dol

Now put the card in your wii and run the homebrew channel. You should now see the REV3 installer application in the list of apps to run. Select it and follow the on screen instructions.

To get the downgrader to run do the same thing. Create a folder called Downgrader in the Apps folder, so you will then have:-

IOS37-64-v2070.wad
Apps
../CustomIOS
../Downgrader

then copy the file cIOS_Downgrader_v1.1.dol to the new folder you just created. Rename the file as BOOT.dol and run from the homebrew channel.

Hopefully this will sort it for you.

i can confirm that this works 100%

i was asked if i would attempt a m8's wii today at downgrading, but i did tell this person it was my first, but he has faith in me.

and yes, piece of pee to do.

i then updated another wii from 3.1E to 3.3E just to do it again, and yep, works 100% no errors or mistakes or problems.

so yep, this is safe to use, and remember, DW is not responsible for any errors or faults etc... to your console, but i can honestly say it works.
