One of my biggest gripes when I got my Macbook was the region locked DVD drive.
Today, it is locked no more! 😀 😀 😀
When I got the Macbook it seemed not just that there was no firmware hack, but that it would be impossible to generate one for these drives. This thread charts the unravelling of the saga, and the breakthrough achieved by Ben11.
If you’ve got a Macbook (Pro) and want to give it a try, there’s a decent article at
powerbook-fr.com but please note, interrupting a firmware update will brick your DVD drive and this is not covered by the warranty, Applecare or no.
Running DVD Info before and after will be informative.
