To make your DVD player region free or multi-region, you can hack it. Most DVD players are hackable, including Toshiba DVD players that are famous for inability to unlock. Sony, Samsung, and Philips are easy to handle, but some of them require extra steps, such as a firmware update for playing any region DVD without changing region code on DVD players, or burning a CD image to a disk. There are tons of DVD player models, and the hacking process varies. Use the following steps.
