    I am currently on 3.2 and unfortunately the bugger retailers did a crap job of softmodding.

    Anyway It was a japanese wii but i put it on NTSC system menu. I'm trying to follow the simplistic guide but I noticed a warning on complete softmod guide:

    Do NOT update your Wii to 4.2 if it is a Korean region changed Wii (a Wii that was originally Korean, but got region changed to U,E or J). Doing this will Instantly Brick your Wii and there is No way back!!

    This refers to only korean region changed so i CAN ASSUME i'M SAFE?

    One more thing. I heard that no prep is needed (besides bootmii) is needed to update to 4.2 cuz it overwrites some of the cios? no prep needed then?

    Thanks for your help.
