    Only hope is bootmii NAND.bin restore via bootmii boot2 or NAND reprograming. You probably realize that guide sucks

    only if the wii supports boot2 bootmii install, otherwise without a backup nand.bin it can not be fixed on a newer wii that can not install boot2 bootmii. It you have boot2 bootmii it can be fixed without a nand.bin, if you could install boot2 bootmii it can be reprogrammed without a nand.bin. If you could not install bootmii as boot2, only ios was available and you did not make a nand.bin with bootmii ios, the wii is bricked forever.

    FYI- your wii is bricked because ios60, the system ios of 4.1 was stubed on the 4.2 update. This stubed ios60 was not removed or replaced when you downgraded to 3.2. When you updated to 4.1 the stubed system ios remained on the wii. So your wii is now loading a non functional system ios at boot, not a good thing. This is why any good downgrade advise will have you replace all stubed system ios with functional version to prevent such a brick, but you where not given such good advice.
