    Unless you have bootmii/boot2 you are stuffed. Your Wiikey2 won't help you recover this one. I believe this is an IOS50 stub brick, seen lots and lots of these where people have gone from 4.0/4.1 to 3.2 and back up to 3.4 via disc.

    I'm assuming you didn't install IOS50 v4889 when you downgraded which would have saved your Wii.

    Bin or Repair.

    We have IOS50 v4889 installed as part of out softmod tutorial, and it's been in place for a couple of months now and stops these bricks from happening. Wiihacks no longer promote downgrading as it is very old fashioned and risky as you have discovered.

    It looks like you didn't anyway, otherwise you'd never have had the brick.

    Anyway for more info see here http://www.wiihacks.com/general-home...stem-menu.html

    Sorry.

    It might not come back with 4.2.

    They've been sending out refurbs in some cases with 3.3 installed and a cunerable boot1 for the glorious bootmii/boot2 installs.

    Besides by the time that's done 4.2 will be fully hackable I'd imagine.
