    if you have bootmii installed load it up and restore your backed up nand otherwise you are fucked. you can send it to big N but they might not fix it or will charge you a lot.

    Wii hacking rule number 1: Downgrading or installing patched updates is unsupported, dangerous, and may permanently brick your Wii.

    Besides, since the introduction of letterbomb there is no reason to downgrade. Everything you can do on 4.1 is possible on 4.3, too. (Feel free to prove me wrong)

    No, they are different.
    While you can install a different or newly created nand there are problems with that
    eg the corrupted sectors of the new one must be a superset of the old ones
    and iirc you need at least your wiis keys (but if you can launch bootmii it can extract them)

    do you have bootmii installed with a backup nand? if not than there's nothing you can do
