If you loaded the "modified" firmware, it does not work with the Pioneer original FW, and did follow the intructions for how to make it multiregional, Press ENTER till the player turn it self off (Enter button on the remote control to be used), if it now turned off while you do press enter it will be multiregional when you restart the player again.
It will remain so even if you install another firmware!

The point with doing the unit multiregional is that you do have discs from other regions! If you dont have any, then this 'trick' is useless for you as it do not have any other function!
As for showing the region info, well most people dont look at this anyway they just want to be able to play there discs from other regions regardless if it says Region 1, 2, 3 or what ever!
