Hello everybody!

That sounds like the biggest problem which is possible, if it doesnt even turn on you most likely deleted a real system critical part, how old is your wii? Did you have priiloader or preloader? Have you tried to turn on your wii with reset held?

Start the Wii while holding down the RESET button - if the Priiloader window will not pop up, I'm afraid you'll have to send in your Wii to DeadlyFoez for NAND re-programming.

And all that drama for something totally pointless like downgrading.
Let this be a warning for all future noobs.

(The only thing that is easier on a 4.1 as opposed to 4.2/4.3 is hacking it.
But since you need to hack to downgrade ...)

Missing system menu ios, send to deadlyfoez or nintendo.

Why did you want to downgrade? There is no benifit at all.
I can also tell you did not use modmii to get your wii hacked.
you are screwed.

I know you said you didnt know you could install bootmi etc , but just to check , does the wii's DVD blue light flash twice when powered on (this indicates bootmii is installed) , and also as others have said try and hold reset soon as you power on to check for priloader. Do you ever recall making a nand backup ? check the SD card (if present) for boomii files. If you have no luck with any of this your quite litterally shit outta luck , Seeing as you live stateside , might be a cheap enough option to ship to deadlyfoez , he can probably fix you up , message him . Its easy to fuck things up if you think you have found a decent guide and it "seems" to work ok , but learning the hard way is usually the case. I lost one wii to my noobness , but was cheaper to get a new one than to ship to the states. Hope you get fixed up .

you can always try to fix it using savemiifree, but you need a gamecube controller to do it and a game that has at least a higher firmware than you had like 4.3, AFAIK Metroid other M has 4.3
if you dont have these 2 just ignore my post

@[member='FIX94']: I think this Wii has been bought on June-(through/or)-September from 2011. ..Noup, didn’t ve priiloader or preloader… yep, I tried to turn it on holding reset but nothing appeared in the screen :/
@[member='Foxi4']: Yep, nothing popped out, so I guess I have to check how much I ve in my wallet -__-.. so who is tht guy called DeadlyFoez? How much does he charge for d repairment?
@[member='PsyBlade']: I guess not everybody was made for hacking T_T
@[member='Hielkenator']: Cuz dats wht d guy in youtube said… (how to istall cIOS>downgrading fwre to 4.1>play downloaded games from inter!! :D…) Didn’t work for me, though D:
@[member='pwsincd']: It only flashes one time… noup, no nand backup buddy :/… yep, I think im gona ve to call tht guy… Dud, I was doing OK installing the homebrew and other little apps til I reached this step where I had to downgrade the wii, and I felt d reaper coming up when this WARNING line appeared, but since Im very stubborn (not to mention Knucklehead) I jst took d risk… -.-
@[member='kano']: I got the Gamecube controller (I even got 3 more gamecube controllers jst in case I mess one, I can try with another one :P) and I tried to do the trick only by using d wii and d controller (no Wii Game inserted), however, as I mentioned before, not even a black screen appeared in the Tv screen. So this is my question: If I were to rent this wii videogame with the latest Firmware available in any rental store, and I try doing this trick with the CD inserted first, will this trick work? Will my wii be able to send audio/video signals to the Tv and launch the firmware updater and save my butt, I mean, my wii?? :S
@[member='Luigi2012SM64DS']: Hey dud, if u see a guy killed with a bricked wii in da news, that would be probably me D:
@[member='Anon10W1z']: Noup, dat didn’t work for me... Therefore, Im screwed -.-
@[member='mauifrog']: I think I dnt ve d bootmii cuz I checked alrdy , so I’ll ve to go for d nand programming

No NAND backup, then you are COMPLETELY screwed.

I'd run if I were you, maybe ask the police to give you protective custody. Luckily, you probably can send it to Nintendo. You should probably give inconsistent stories to your sister.

Good luck with the last bit of your life.

You followed the advice of a YouTuber. That is where I stopped reading.

Anon10w1z was trying to say that the method in the video supports a method of sharing copyrighted files which is illegal, not the downgrading. He wasn't exactly clear about it but I figured it out.

Ah. I see now, I thought he was refering to the whole "modding" business, and that's... debatable. :P
