    Do you have Bootmii as a boot2 replacement? This would make things a lot easier. If not, did you at least have preloader....

    Preloader should let you boot directly to the homebrew channel, hold reset down while pressing power to get into preloader. I'm assuming you have the homebrew channel installed? If so then boot to homebrew, use whatever program you used to install the theme (I use mymenuify), and try installing another theme, to overwrite whatever theme "bricked" the wii, or run waninkoko 4.1 updater. Remember, when installing themes, they have to be designed for the system menu version you have. And once you get it working again, please install bootmii and make a backup.............
