    downgrading is a big no no. If you don't have bootmii installed as boot2 then you're up a creek.

    1. Power on and see if your dvd light flashes once or twice quickly
    2. power on again while holding reset and see if priiloader comes up. (Probably won't i bet)

    I'm moving this to the bricked wii section

    Newer (2009 onwards) Wiis are unable to be downgraded to anything lower than 3.4. A hardware change was made to these Wiis which prevent it.

    So in all likelihood you have now full bricked your Wii with no way of recovery.

    Use an Infectus NAND programmer to flash your carefully saved NAND image, if you have one. Will cost you, either to buy and solder it yourself or pay someone to do it for you.

    Or send it to Nintendo for repair.

    Or throw it in the bin.

    Up to you.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.

    I'm curious - why did you do that?
