    I could be wrong but there isn't a 601 region free hack.

    I downloaded the 430, extracted it & is a bin file.

    Once you have the firmware updated with this you have to enter 4 digit codes to switch regions. The player automatically sets the status to region 0 for DVD (region free) but I read you can also manually change the regions 1-6 by pressing the color buttons. Hmm.. Trying to figure out if its worth it.

    Can the bin file be copied to a CD-R instead of USB?

    I have the 601 firmware installed. I've burned the files onto both a CD and USB drive. I don't know where to go from here.

    I tried loading those files by the update firmware but it does not wark. (it does not see any files that are firmware upgradeable). This leads me to the conclusion that I am not at the right place???

    Where/ how do you load the hack files?

    Edit: Got it to work.
    How did you get it to work?

    I have the 430 firmware hack & saved the extracted bin file to a USB scandisk. I get the same message as you posted above here when I try update through USB.

    I loaded up the UPG folder onto a USB drive. Plugged the USB into the oppo with the power off and then turned it on and the player automatically recognized the update.

    After that, the player will turn itself off. Took the USB drive out and turned the player on and went to the setup menu and entered the 4 digit code.

    Note: when you enter the code, you wont see anything going on . It's like nothing happened but its happening.


    The way I was doing it earlier (the wrong way I guess) was inserting the USB drive while the player was on and and manually updating the firmware. So make sure the player is off first and then the player should automatically find the UPG folder.

    Ahh thanks.

    I tried to install the wrong file. The firmware updated just as yours & the player shut down.

    I took the USB out & turned the power on. Placed a region 2 dvd & got the wrong region message.

    This is harder than I thought because I thought the player automatically knew what DVD region to play. I can't fine that page which showed ya how to manually change dvd regions.

    Does such a player even exist? I've only ever heard of switching regions manually.

    The 4 digit code is only for Blu-ray regions, not dvd regions. I checked on other sites as they confirm that as well. There is a silly color code to change regions manually. Red or blue pressed down for so many odd seconds till you hear a beep.

    I'll try the 601

    hmm... I thought those four digits were for both Blu rays and DVDs.

    Have you successfully loaded a region B blu?

    Man some people have wild imaginations. This was a post in the first thread which is updated. Damn fools.

    You are right Mark, the Region B code worked for Region 2 DVD playback. Thanks again.

    Thumbs up My own OPPO customer service experience.

    I just wanted to share my own experience with OPPO's customer
    service. There have been a couple of Blu-ray's that have failed to
    play on the BDP-83(12 rounds & Haunting in Connecticut) among
    other players.

    There was a rumor floating around that OPPO had a beta firmware
    that fixed the problem. So, I emailed customer service at 7:16 p.m.
    last night describing my situation with the discs and at 7:23 p.m. a
    return email from OPPO arrived with a firmware that fixed the problem.

    They responded in 7 minutes and had a fix for the problem.

    I watched this last night on the BDP-S350. It took an unusually long time to load the java. I thought it was stuck at the animation book icon while loading. 20 seconds later it finished loading.

    Is this where the Oppo got stuck?

    Yes, but it never loads completely.

    This Java crap has to go.

    Java was a bad idea, HDi would have been better.... What's halerious to me is the fact that Sony might well have been able to shorten the format war if they had just gone with HDi in the first place. Oh well.

    I think Sony *did* choose HDi? It was the remainder of the BDA that chose Java...maybe for licensing reasons. I bet some of them (Pioneer especially) are second-guessing that decision now.
