    There is a message
    The Disc can not be played
    The region code is not correct

    All my DVDs are region 2. PS3 is PAL region 5.
    I changed /setting/bddvd/dvdRegionCode to 2
    and setting/bddvd/dvdTvSystem to 0

    Installed Rebug 4.30 Rex CFW.
    There is an option in debug menu - Change region. But no help.
    I think region changing is impossible. Only editing EID0 maybe.

    Did you reboot after exchanging xRegistry.sys?

    I tested the xRegistry.sys method myself, and it is working for me.

    Yes I reboot.
    To what region you changed?
    I changed
    /setting/bddvd/dvdRegionCode from 5 to 2
    setting/bddvd/dvdTvSystem from 2 to 0

    Need to change to NTSC region 2 (Japan, Europe, South Africa, and the Middle East (including Egypt)) from PAL region 5

    Maybe is is /setting/parental/dvdRegion ?

    Under /setting/bddvd/dvdRegionCode I changed 2 to 1 and under /setting/bddvd/dvdTvSystem I changed 2 to 0, ahen I try to play a PAL DVD I get an error that it can't play PAL DVDs. I can't test if it is playing a NTSC DVD though as I don't own one. I don't think it's /setting/parental/dvdRegion, that sounds like a parental control thing to me but I'm not sure. I don't know what else to do, so I can't help you any further.

    I tried C2D, changed target ID from 8C to 83 flashing NOR flash dump.
    Still cant play other region DVD but now it shows black screen for about 4 seconds trying to play it and then wrights the region error message.

    I used this manual -
    http://www.ps3hax.net/2012/07/c2d-exe-v2-now-with-added-region-change/

    I still cant understand /setting/parental/dvdRegion meaning. I think the problem is here. its numbers are country code in HEX like GB, US, JP, RU, etc. But cant find which number for what country is.

    It would be nice if someone can upload NTSC-J console xregistry.sys file. Thank You!

    There is a option change DVD Movie region in Multiman CM 4.50.04 but it dont works. FW - Rogero 4.46 Cobra 7.00
