    Maybe you could Downgrade this what I did to fix my Semi-Brick Use Multi-Mod Manager and this WAD here

    MMM - Multi-Mod-Manager_v13.4.zip - 4shared.com - online file sharing and storage - download

    WAD - MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service

    Extract MMM Folder to apps Folder on SD card and send The Wad file to the wad folder
    start up MMM via Homebrew Select Wad Manager and install the Wad you just added
    and it should Downgrade you to 4.1u (There is a chance you may brick but if you have priiloader It can be easily resolved)

    I'm actually already on 4.1u. It doesn't seem to matter what system menu I'm using: I can't format on 4.3 or 4.1, neither via the settings menu nor the nand formatter.

    I'm curious as to what you think would be accomplished by downgrading anyway, even if I was on 4.2 or 4.3? (My best guess is that I have a corrupt message in my message board, which doesn't seem to be affected by the SM version). Did you have a corrupt message/"mail brick" too or something?

    Hah, yeah I wasn't planning on it... seems a bit sketchy since it's (supposedly) a fix for an entirely different kind of brick.

    No not yet. I won't have time until Sunday or early next week, but I'll post with an update as soon as I get a chance to try it out. In the meantime, researching how to compile from source code.....

    If you upload your existing nand.bin and keys.bin and send me the link, I will compile a new nand for you.

    Bad blocks - pretty much all nand chips have bad blocks from the factory - they are designed to work like this and because of that have built in measures for dealing with bad blocks. Bad blocks are mapped around, so if you try to write data to a bad block, that data is lost.

    the tool uses your existing bad block locations, so it doesnt put data in that area when generating a new nand.
