My Wii is the very first generation of Jap console, WiiKey installed on dvd rom

After (carelessly) upgrading to 4.2J, cross region disc loading is gone, that prompts me to downgrade to 4.1J

I installed 4.1 IOS60 and 4.1J System Menu (reading from somewhere that this is all I need to downgrade), I then get a fully bricked Wii, but I do not have nand backup before doing the downgrade

I then tried to reinstall 4.2 IOS 60 stub, IOS 70, 4.2J System Menu, hoping I can get it back to 4.2J, but no luck, still black screen

I still have bootmi/boot2v4, and I can still run wad manager 1.5

At the moment, I have to use Wad Manager 1.5 Mod3 because Wiimote is not longer syncing, and I need a Wad Manager that can use GC controller.

During my downgrade and re-upgrade, I was loading IOS249 as the basis in wad manager

Questions...
1) Is there a procedure of cleaning the nand and rebuilding the whole thing from scratch? Like installing the full set of IOS in a certain order to bring my Wii back to factory settings? If so, is there a guide anywhere? One for bricked Wii rather than a functioning Wii.

2) Or my only option is to use my key.bin and someone else nand.bin to completely reflash my nand? I am not sure where to find such an old compatible nand, especially it is Jap version. I dumped my key.bin and nand.bin AFTER the brick, I suppose key.bin is still valid and my nand is messed up.

Thank you very much for any help. I really regret not reading enough, i.e. backup nand first before doing anything...

Thanks very much in advance!

sounds like you removed your setting.txt by uninstalling the system menu, that can cause your wii to black screen and wiimotes not to sync, try using setting replace tool to replace your setting.txt then install your system menu and it's IOS without removing them just install over them.
hope this helps
get setting replace tool
from here

Unless someone uploads one for you, cause i dont know were to find to a jp setting.txt, now that your wii is unbricked you could use Any region changer to change your settings back to JP
just don't run the downgrader from Any Region Changer just change your settings back to JP and all should be fixed

I think this can not help you, but you can try it
You need to cboot2 v16. If you have installed bootmii as boot2
If you do not install. Then you need to infectus


good luck
