How to Change the Region of Your PS3 Blu-ray Drive
Ever since the first PS3 JailBreak was out i was hoping for a region patcher so I can watch all the blu ray discs i own no matter if region a/b/c and nobody ever knew how... after lots of research and checking around i present to you 3 patch*.txt files for lv2 patcher!
Download: PS3 Blu-ray Region Patches and LV2 Patcher / PS3 LV2 Patcher BD Region Changer by bitsbubba
just copy the files into: /dev_hdd0/game/LV2000000/USRDIR
and the next time you start lv2 patcher you will have 3 new patches to choose from (region a/b/c)
once you patch you don't have to restart your ps3, it works right away! if you restart your ps3 the bd region is set to standard again.
tested & working for me on pal cechcxx machine with 3.55cfw (rebug & kmeaw) using kmeaw's lv2 patcher v9!
this only works for blu ray and nothing else, for dvd the old xregistry trick applies... i didn't code anything, just collected and tested, sources for this can be found here:
thanks a million times to everyone involved, this now makes the ps3 the best bd player for that prize range!

Possible to play other region PS2 games (not movies) in PS3 ?
Just wanted to ask if the same region free registry hack for DVD playback would work for PS2 game discs from other regions ??
Would just patching the "/setting/bddvd/dvdRegionCode" entry be enough ? or are there some other fields to be patched also along with ?
