    I found this don't know if it will work:

    RPC2 firmware where the number of "User Changes" and "Region Setting" snap back to the pre-flashing settings every time you cycle the power on the drive.

    This effectively gives you an infinite number of region changes, without all the software BS required by an RPC1 firmware. For more info try Google, or a search on

    Region free firmware:

    Beware of using such "region resetters". If incorrectly installed/flashed you will end up with a brick...

    I agree, in fact there is allready another post on the forum from an LG owner who tried the region free hacked firmware. now he has a LG paperweight.
