    Download ModMii and use its Wizard function.
    Tell it that your Wii is a virgin, even if its not.
    When it asks what region your Wii is, answer it is region changed, when asked what it was region changed to, answer Euro.

    Now because you have a modchip, the cMIOS ModMii would have instructed u to install may prevent gamecube games from loading from the disc channel. To restore its functionality, install MIOSv10 (from ModMii's download page 1-"M10") using a wad manager.

    Be warned, performing an official update WILL result in a 003 brick. If u update using ModMii, u will be safe (in fact, if u tell ModMii to install extra brick protection, you will be safe even if you perform an official update to 4.3)

    I recommend configurable usb-loader, when u run the ModMii wizard, it will ask u if u want to set up a USB-Loader, if u do, then say yes [​IMG]

    updating to 4.1 is totally safe

    If you don't want to update, just answer 4.1 then when you get to the "install wads" step, install all the wads in the list except for the 4.1 system menu. But I'm not sure what kind of priiloader system menu hacks are available on 3.4. If I were u, I would just update to 4.1, it would ensure u have access to all the system menu hacks as well as gain access to the SD card menu introduced in SM4.0.

    Those channels will only be installed if u selected them when going through the ModMii Wizard. And even then, they should overwrite w/e u currently have installed. If u want to delete your duplicate channels, use "any title deleter" CAREFULLY. Do not delete anything other than your duplicate channels because if u delete something important u WILL brick.

    And your very very welcome!

    The system menu will be updated to v450 as you can see, that's 4.1E, so it wont brick your wii. I don't know everything about region changed wii's, but I'm sure that modmii know it [​IMG]

    Here is the key to protecting region changed formerly korean Wii's from 003 bricks.

    * IOS60v16174(IOS60v6174[FS-ES-NP])
    * IOS70v16174(IOS60v6174[FS-ES-NP])
    * IOS80v16174(IOS60v6174[FS-ES-NP])

    I've taken the system menu IOS for 4.1 (IOS60v6174), and saved it to the slots used by 4.2 and 4.3 wii's (slot 70 and 80). The original (non-stubbed) IOS70 and IOS80 have begun checking the Wii for the common-key, and korean wii's have their own korean key that when found on a non-korean system menu (ie. on korean region changed wii's) it results in a 003 brick. So that's why the original IOS70 and IOS80 can brick Korean region changed wii's and also why ModMii's IOSs above protect against this type of brick.

    In short, you're safe to proceed with your ModMii guide.
