April 22, 2011 // 1:30 pm - 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!

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 ?
