    but i really cbf trying, plus my laser died
    Hi, you are wrong

    xRegistry works perfectly, but Bluray region change it's not only a setting inside Hex file, I think that's inside BD reader unit firmware too.

    Inside dev_flash3 it's two file name DRL1 and DRL2, I think that files and xRegistry and the three keys to change BD region in any PS3...

    Doing that makes things even worse. it seems that dvdTvSystem accepts only the values 0 or 2.

    I still can't play DVD region 4 discs on my console even after changing the region from 1 to 4. it keeps telling the region code is wrong.

    Yes, you must set dvdtvsystem to 0 (NTSC) and then dvdregioncode to 4.

    This must works for you if your zone is Mexico, Central America, South America, Australia, New Zealand, Oceania.

    I'm trying to get my Japanese PS3 to play region 1 DVDs. I changed the dvdregion to 1 using xRegistryEditor but it didn't work.

    I tried restarting my PS3 afterwards and I tried multiple region 1 discs. I'm still getting an error message saying the region is wrong. I'm using CFW 3.55 with Comgenie's awesome filemanager.

    You need to do more than just change the region. You also have to change the TV video format to the corresponding type. as far as I know it only works on dvds. Blu ray region code is different from dvd region on ps3. It has a slightly more tamper resistant protection.

    its already set to 0. Japan and America are both NTSC so I don't see why it would need to be changed.

    Does this only work with DVDs, or PS2 games, too? I have a couple of Japanese PS2 games I've been trying to get to run this way, but it's not working. I dunno what I would change the DVDTV thing to for NTSC-J, though, so maybe that's it. Using 3.55 Kmeaw CFW and Comgenie.
