What can open up from this tool?
- Use FTP to download /dev_flash2/etc/xRegistry.sys (create a copy just to be safe)
- Open with xRegistry.sys Editor
- Change the value of setting/system/buttonAssign from 00000000 to 0000001 and click save
- Save the file and upload it to /dev_flash2/etc/xRegistry.sys overwriting the existing file
This will permanently change the button layout, no need to go through this process again unless you want to revert back to the original button layout.
Among other things, likely region-free DVD and Blu-ray but time will tell for sure.
Had a quick look through dev_flash maybe we need to look into the vsh>resource>explore>xmb folder looks interesting.
I think you will need to edit some more stuff in dev_flash. Or it is stored in the Bluray drive FW...
I have just ordered a new ps3 (EU), i have now a fat US model. When it comes, i will try to boot the EU dev_flash on, US model.
I am hoping on it will work.
you can change the ps3's region with this editor - maybe that'd help the dvd region?
and i haven't got "region code is not correct" as a message :| weird.
I think that is because you have put 0 in the dvdRegionCode settings.
i didnt just put 0, i had it on 6 and it said cannot play etc nothing about region, ever.
