And there's no region free firmware patch for it yet.
I've got... 4 region changes left, according to DVD Info X.
Going to explore my other options first though*. And grrr, rpc1.org site is offline / down / otherwise unavailable.
-class computer lab has a few external DVD drives, 'cause we needed to install linux, and the distro came as a DVD, and the blade servers we got to play with only had CD drives.
-homebuilt desktop computer. Don't know if it's region free right now. :\ Disadvantage of that is that I'll need to find good DVD ripping software for windows. Anyone have any suggestions?
W00t, lab external usb DVD drive appears to work.
From what I'm reading, there's some sort of RPC2 Auto Reset patch. And maybe there's a RPC1 patch, but I'm not sure about that.
