Bricked -Gone to Japanese 2.0J :(
After a softmod that didn't work all that well (out of about 6 back ups, only Mario Kart worked), I began restoring to a vanilla Wii and downgraded too far to 2.0.
A message came up informing me that if I didn't change the region, I'd semi-brick so I did. At no point did it say what region or language it would change it to - which is somewhat annoying.
I then was able to use the region changer to get english menus back but then got the Opera browser fault when trying to access system settings.
After a reboot, it wiped the Homebrew channel and won't recognise the files on the SD cardwhich it did previously.
So I have a Japanese 2.0J Wii which I can't play any UK game on or install anything to recover it with on the SD card. I had bootmii installed previous but nothing shows in any of the channels and the SD card locks up the Wii if I don't rename the 'private' folder.
I've read somewhere that I can upgrade the firmware from the Jap version of Mario Galaxy and then get the use of my SD card back and fix it from there?
Has anyone had experience of this nightmare before and recovered?
