@OP try entering the system menu at maintenance mode (press and hold + - at Health Warning screen until system menu comes up.) If that allows you to access the system menu, you are mail bricked and it can be fixed from there. Could be a banner brick but this will clear up some of my doubts.
Maintenance mode (pressing + - at Health Warning) also goes to a black screen, so that's a no go.
I got a GC2-D2C from an older Wii, swapped it for my D4, installed the Autobooting WasabiDX, and tried to follow this guide.
When I hold the Gamecube buttons and turn on the Wii, I get the screen with "4.3(USA)" in the corner. If one of the burned rescue disks that the guide links to is in, nothing happens, 4.3(USA) stays there. If I have an original Wii game in, the 4.3(USA) disappears, but then I just get a black screen. Shouldn't the originals at the very least be booting? Any ideas?
The rescue disk isn't loading because you don't have a patched System IOS. Do you have Mariokart? If so see if it will start. If so there is a way to install a patched System IOS using a modified copy of it.
I understand not having a patched System IOS will prevent the rescue disks from loading, but shouldn't Wii Sports and Wii Fit load?
Also, I had installed Trucha and waninkoko's cIOS. I had used Wad Manager to install and use channel forwarders for WiiFlow and the emulators; they all were working fine before I bricked it with the bad wads. What other patched IOS would I be missing?
The System IOS needs to be patched. In your case that would be IOS80.
edit: I don't see how running an official game disk will help you. You need to be able to run a recovery disk. If you have Mariokart then there might be a way install a patched SM IOS. Streamlinehd linked to a video here (post 39) and there is mention of a guide by Mauifrog on how to build the disk (I think), but I couldn't find it.

Damn. So the modchip+savemii won't autoboot anything without a patched System IOS?
No but it should load an official game disk. I'm not sure why you can't. I'm guessing it's because you are missing an IOS that the game needs to run or you made things worse by putting in a game with a 4.3 update and it tried to update and removed any trace of softmods you had yet leaving the bad wad. I really don't know.
Stand by and maybe Streamlinehd or Bad_Ad84 will be able to help.

If he boots wii fit, you can say the date/time is wrong and you get put into the settings menu, which means you can format the Wii and remove the channel.
Pretty sure thats what hes getting at.
Netflix disk mauifrog posted would also work.
So, no game will autoboot on my presumably banner-bricked Wii. So I tried to use the modchip in my other Wii (virgin 3.4U, no homebrew at all) and tried to autoboot with the SAME results: after showing version in corner for a few seconds the screen goes black and the drive keeps spinning. I could play backups and originals just fine through the system menu and could access the Wasabi configs to verify that the autoboot setting was turned ON, so the modchip at least works.
Any idea why my original Wii Fit Plus would play fine on my normal Wii, but then not autoboot with the modchip and gamecube controller? Is there an extra step I'm missing or could my WasabiDX be defective?
This is just a guess but try enabling the update blocker in the Wasabi DX configuration. The game might trying to update.
