    if you like yotube, stick with it. otherwise, search "semi-brick" in this Forum.
    go into Rescue Mode and try to close your eyes (ie. B.L.I.N.D.). reinstall 4.3u sysMenu, see if recovery possible. as you've reformatted the console, hard to say.

    Maybe mauifrog can provide some advice next time he pokes his head in. Wait. Do nothing else without specific instruction. You have a good chance of recovery, in spite of your best efforts to brick your wii.

    Format your sd card, install letterbomb. Only letterbomb.
    Extract the boot.dol from BLIND v2.0.zip to sd:\

    Run letterbomb, this should load wiimod. Select load another ios. Load ios236 or 249.
    Select the advanced menu, and the region manager.
    Set the settings to USA and save.
