E1 Region Free Firmware here. :thumbsup:
RCE Hack.
1) Turn on player
2) Open tray, put disc in tray but don´t close
3) Push T.search on remote
4) Push 1, 3, 9 and "Region number" (e.g. 1 for US discs)
5) Push T. search on remote.

You will see TEST on your player

6) Press PLAY on the remote

When player is turned off, this setting is cleared.

hddvdregionfree - good work man..

Can I ask - do you know if it is likely or possible that there will be a similar firmware fix to enable the ep35 to be region free?

Kind thanks

hddvdregionfree is a previously banned poster. We have agreed that he can start posting again, but this time respecting the english forums are a little more 'conservative' than Australian ones.

Once you have the new firmware and burnt it to a disc, once finished, he has agreed the disc can then be passed onto someone to use.

Hope this clarifies for all concerned.

Can I be first on the list to try the new firmware disc please - I will pass it onto the next person (i take it will work like the normal firmware discs...)

Sounds good.

I see no reason for you to post this apart from starting a *My willy is bigger than your's thread* :rolleyes:
I posted to let people know it's now available, where I got it and that it does work.

I'll confirm for myself he's happy with that arrangement and then will happily send on to somebody else. You need to be on 2.5 or earlier though, won't work if you're on 2.7.

EDIT: Confirmed above so I'll send it on. I think Baldybouncer is first, please PM me with your address and i'll send it in the post.

AFAIK, it works the same as the XE1 firmware;

Auto Region free apart from RCE discs which reportedly don't work.

Future firmware updates still leave the player region free (I'm about to install 2.7 so will confirm shortly).

It looks like it could be an early Happy Christmas to E1 owners then !

I was hoping the region free firmware would make it across from Oz. I'd love to receive the update disc, and would be happy to send it along to the next user.

Thanks hddvdregionfree - you've made a lot of people very happy :thumbsup:

Right then, I've just updated to 2.7; it installed without a problem and the player is still region free.

Just to make it clear you need to be on firmware 2.5 to install the region free firmware, if you've installed 2.7 then I'm afraid there's no way of installing it. I was on 2.3 and had to install 2.5 first. I can forward on firmware 2.5 on disc too if needed.

Unfortunately Baldybouncer is on 2.7 so there's no point me sending him the firmware. That makes Nic Rhodes next; Nic can you please confirm you're on 2.5 or earlier and PM me your details.
