    That doesnt help. I think the region is hard coded into the motherboard because I tried that back in the day with the japanese 2.0 eboot. Still played my US movies.

    I think Japan's movies will work w/ US and vice versa b/c when I special ordered my White PSP from China, I got it and it played all movies I had w/o any FW manipulation. I think that is the only way it works tho, (Japan>US, US>Japan) and would explain why your movies still played.

    Thats crazy because the only thing they region encode are the UMD Movie. And I used the japanese firmware but was still able to use my US movies. But ya I think the region code is held in the actual motherboard.

    yeah hex is right it is held in the motherboard and cant me deleted nore re written they made sure of that in order to protect from piratecy meaning no mater what firmwire it is it wont help so useing a diffrent region umd/firmwire is like trying to get in a car with your house key

    Im pretty sure u cant watch movies as an iso. plus tehre would still be the region code coded into the data of the .iso.

    yea, but the region code is probably just a text file. And I'm sure you can rip (for example) the Video sampler that came free w/ the PSP. I can't remember, but I swear there's a UMD_DATA and DATA.BIN or w/e it's called. Damn, it's been so long since I've messed w/ an ISO, I forgot what they're called. wow! That sucks. I used to love hacking ISOs.

    You could probably hex edit but it might screw with the data and not be able to boot it. But can you even watch a UMD Movie ripped in iso format?
