Regional hack for Toshiba HD DVD players?


Why is it taking so long for a regional hack to appear for the SD DVD side of the current crop of Toshiba HD DVD players? In the early days of DVD it seemed like the multi-region hacks were appearing within days of the players coming to market.

What's the problem this time?

Must admit it doesn't bother me, but I do agree it's strange. Didn't some kid crack the iPhone a few days ago? Someone send him a Toshiba HD player!

It could be that the firmware keeps being updated. Which version of firmware do you produce a hack for? Or you need a hack that is firmware independent.

I bet it'll take all of 5 minutes for a hack to the Venturer player.

Once that happens, the Toshibas will soon follow.

As I posted elsewhere, Samsung Dual format likely will also spring a hack fairly soon after release. That should also add impetus.
