Savemii will not work, your system menu's IOS is a stub. If you have a NAND backup and/or the keys saved somewhere you can send the wii to someone who can reprogram the NAND. Otherwise it is bricked beyond repair.

Are you sure that I can't install an auto boot mod chip and create a recovery disc when the savemii displays the system menu version?i find it strange that I bricked my wii and dop-mii installed 3.3u sucessfully

As tueidj said, your Wii can't be fixed without a NAND and keys backup and a hardware NAND programmer. The System Menu IOS for 3.3 is "stubbed" in the 4.3 update. [Stubbed means a non working version is installed]. Therefore when you install 3.3, even if the System Menu installs successfully, you don't have a working version of the System Menu IOS. Without that, your Wii can't boot. As the Recovery Menu SaveMii accesses is part of the system menu, it is only useful with semi bricks were the System Menu can at least partially boot. (BTW, Priiloader wouldn't work in this instance either, even if it was installed - which it possibly was, I think dop-Mii at least offers to reinstall it for you when you install a different System Menu)

I doubt ios30 is a stub, dop-mii would install a function system ios prior to the system menu. Sounds like you have a new wii that does not run on ios30-v2576. Who the hell downgrades to 3.3? I don't think anyone has ever tested, but perhaps the 3.3 ios are just as incompatible as the 3.2 ios on some new wii hardware. Or perhaps dop-mii installed ios30-v1040 instead of v2576, I doubt it though.
