There is now a way to make your HD-EP30 region free. :r0: First of all I want to say that I don't take any credit in making the regionfree firmware. I only modified it to make it run on our players. It is a quite 'dirty method', so maybe it's not for all to do this. The procedure has to be followed very carefully, or you risk rendering your player useless. The update procedure: If you don't feel up to it, then it's better not to try. Hopefully there will come a better way to do it in the future. Having said that, the procedure have been tested on 4 players and all of those are now region free. To make your EP30 or A30 (incl. PAL capability) region free: 1) EP30-dirty1 2) EP30-dirty2 3) Update your now region free player with the EP30 version 4.0. To crossflash your EP30 or A30 (incl. PAL capability) into region free EP35-mode: 1) EP30-dirty1 2) EP35-dirty2 3) Update your now region free player with the EP35 version 4.0. To make your A35 into PAL capable region free EP35: 1) EP35-dirty1 2) EP35-dirty2 3) Update your now region free player with the EP35 version 4.0. To revert your EP30 or A30 from EP35-mode to EP30-mode: 1) EP35-dirty1 2) EP30-dirty2 3) Update your reverted player with the EP30 version 4.0. If you decide to crossflash your EP30 or A30 into EP35-mode, you can see how bitstreaming will work in this post. If you have an A30 or A35 and plan to make it into a regionfree EP30 or EP35, please ensure that your TV or projector can handle PAL before starting the process. Even though the EP30 and EP35 can playback NTSC, they will have PAL as default. If you play a R1 DVD that is encoded with RCE, you will get an error message like: 'This disc is not formatted to play in this region'. You will then need to enter the RCE hack, which can be found here. Disclaimer **************** By downloading the firmware files you agree that you fully understand the potential, like with any firmware update, to "brick" the player and are happy to attempt this firmware update at your own risk. **************** UPDATE !!! My SkyDrive is now closed, so no need sending me PM for the "dirty firmware"
