    I had this same problem just yesterday, i downgraded my wii from 4.2 to 3.2, and then later on in the day, I put in New Super Mario Bros. Wii, and when its update was finished, the screen faded out as usual, returning to the system menu, except it didnt go to the system menu, and it just stayed a black screen, so i held the power button and shut off the wii.

    Every time i turned on the wii, it was just a blank screen, the Green LED light was on, I can insert, and eject discs, but everything else is nothing, my Wii-mote can turn on the wii, but no response after.

    I've been looking for an answer the whole next day (this day), and I came accross this thread!

    I have Bootmii installed on my Wii, and all the files on my SD Card, 'armboot.bin' 'bootmii.ini' and 'ppcboot.efl' but I dont see bootmii when i turn on my Wii! Whats the deal?

    What you have us an updated version of the issue outlined in this thread.

    Your trouble is IOS60 stub rather than IOS50 stub. Updating to 4.2 updates your IOS60 to v6400 (a zero stub file), downgrading to 3.2 makes no changes to this file. When you update using NSMB it checks it's IOS60 v6174, sees it as lower and ignores IOS60 as an updateable IOS.

    The consequence, a full brick only rescueable with bootmii/boot2.

    Check your Wii for dual DVD slot flashes (very fast flash). Bootmii requires a compatible SD card, if yours doesn't work and you have boot2 installed then change the SD card.

    ok srry this is my first time on forums, but Tealc i have bricked my wii due to downgrading from 4.0 to 3.2 then accidently upgrading back to 4.0 with wii resort. listening to many ppl on youtube so its bricked and i dont think i can fix it reading this forum. so ima buy a new one, so its most likely going to be the new model wiis. so what do i have to do exactly to prevent getting bricked again?

    Only bootmii/boot2 can fix this sort of brick and that needed to be installed before you bricked.

    There's other ways to brick Wiis but not downgrading will stop you having this one.
