    Here you go:

    To change the region code:

    1. Open Disc Tray
    2. Push "Setup" on remote control.
    3. Push "93010"
    ("9" is the region code for all regions. You can substitute your region for 9 if you prefer.)
    4. Push "Step," "Shuffle," and then "Next"
    5. Close the Disc Tray.

    to verify that the hack has worked:

    1. Open Disc Tray
    2. Push "Setup" on remote control.
    3. Push "Shuffle," "Step, " and then "Next"
    This takes you to the secret setup menu.
    4. Scroll down to the "debug" setting and verify that the region you selected is selected here. Note that making changes directly to the menu here WILL NOT WORK!
    5. Close the disc tray

    Note: There are some interesting settings in the secret setup menu that can be useful. When playing certain PAL discs on an NTSC TV (SouthPark vol. 12-15 for example), you will notice certain distortions caused by the drawing method. You can alleviate this problem by changing the "picture mode" in the secret menu until you find a setting that works.
