just wondering about the region code of the superdrive

in Current Mac Hardware edited January 2014
is there any way to make my superdrive regionfree?

I just pop in a code 2 DVD and it tells me that i have 5 more times to change region codings.

    Go to this page: <a href="http://www.wormintheapple.gr/macdvd/download.html"; target="_blank">http://www.wormintheapple.gr/macdvd/download.html</a>; and download the relevant firmware patch and software region utility.

    From the site:

    [quote] These patches are for the DVD-ROM drives that ship with Macintosh computers. They change the status of the drive from RPC-2 (region locked) to RPC-1 (region free). Using these patches will void your warranty, and if used incorrectly, they can damage your drive, so be sure to read the instructions.

    Please note that making your drive region free will not stop the region warning from appearing in the Apple DVD player. The difference is that now you can use the software region utilities to reset the number of allowed region switches and manually change the chosen region of your Macintosh computer.
