As I said, I had the BootMii still available (I put it back on my SD) and had HBC still accessible. So I just used the Downgrader in HBC and downgraded back to 3.2 and it's working fine again.
I'm not sure i'll be messing with much anymore now it's working again.
That was a close call.
I was following the instructions to 'New 3.1-4.1 Softmod for ANY Wii':
Updated to 4.1E and followed all the steps...when I completed step 5 and restarted I got a bad system menu msg!
I started up preloader, and open the homebrew channel and re-installed IOS60 with the wad manager.
When I restarted the wii...nothing...
Just the green light on the power button...no signal or anything?
Any ideas on how to fix this bad boy?
Only if you can get to bootmii menu and do a nand restore....

can you load preloader by holding down reset when you switch your wii on?
Trust me there is nothing you can do.
Its a full system brick.
Send it back to nintendo.
It happened to me already. It took me 6 days to get it back with 3.3 firmware when i turned it on.
i installed everything over and stayed the hell away from the ios60patched file.
If you have a warranty just send it back or if not its 75 dollars its worth it.
Just like me you will know better next time.
We live and learn
I did this to but all i was trying to do was get a backup loader on the system menu.
I do have bootmii and preloader but can't access them is there any way I can?
preloader can be accessed by holding down reset button while turning the wii on
bootmii by having an sd card inside the wii (i think)
