LG DRT389H - anyone cracked the region hack

Dezbo (Harmless) posted this on Sunday, 19th October 2008, 10:42

Hi,

The LG DRT389H seems to be a popular model - but has anyone managed to work out the region hack for this machine. There must be one as I have seen it advertised as pre-hacked/region free from one seller.

Cheers

EUREKA !!! I THINK I HAVE THE HACK !!!!

Switch the player on.

When it`s booted up hold down CLEAR on remote and EJECT on the front panel of your dvd player simultaneously for about 6 seconds.

You will see a list of codes

WRITE THEM ALL DOWN exactly as you see them (in case you mess up as it is really easy to do !!!)

Left/right arrows on remote take you through the onscreen codes, Up/down changes through 0-9/ a-z

Change OP6 from ae (or whatever yours is set at) to 8e.

Press Enter and then menu/list on your remote.

Your player will reboot.

Now your player is Multi region.

I can confirm that the abve hack DOES work. I tried it last night and tested it on a Region 1 disc (Star Wars). Good work Mowser, this will make many people happy. Just follow the instructions above and you`re set. For those who did not write the OP codes down, here they are before being edited.

OP1: da
OP2: 30
OP3: 03
OP4: 60
OP5: 0e
OP6: aa
OP7: 47
OP8: 02
OP9: 0d
OPA: 00

Just got this recorder for Xmas and i think it`s brilliant.

However i just tried to play one of my DVD`s and it spat it out because it was the wrong region, so i loged into this forum used the hack and it worked as advertised.

So many thanks to you Mowser for the hack.

I too managed to use the ae - 8e option.. This eventually worked. Many thanks...
my codes however were as follows
OP1: da
OP2: 30
OP3: 03
OP4: 60
OP5: 0e
OP6: ae - 8e
OP7: 47
OP8: aa
OP9: 0d
OPA: 00

tried regions 1 and 2 all good.

When entering the codes page be carefull not to press the up arrows straight away as this changes the values ..instead use the left right navigatior to skip to next character.

Had an error message of a navigation error.. tried another disc. actually an audio cd then back to a dvd. this did the trick.

Thanks for the tip guys.

Thanks from: Loula
