There is a LOT more in the KV than just the region code and the thread exists to document that NOT random ideas on patching the region code.

Thanks for being so straight with me and making this very clear.  I don't agree with everything you say but don't think its fruitful (nor do I have the time) to discuss it. In short: I'm think I'm accustomed to a somewhat different posting style. Expressing coneptual ideas (with conditions to check) that can be verified or shot down by certain specialists can be very effective I believe. Sometimes it doesn't. But I believe that because of the discussion with SeventhSon we figured out how exactly the key -the kv is encrypted with- is generated which allows us now to change the contents of the kv (including the game region). So at least someting good came out of it and I hope you don't mind we did that ;).

But I will refrain myself from posting unverified (or not very strongly based) ideas. If I understand you correctly that whats you mean with the above: stick to facts and results.

All ok?

Regards,

arnezami

No need to refrain. The general hacking forums are perfect for stuff like that. I check through that forum on a pretty much daily basis (often more) and if there's a half-decent theory, idea or question and I have spare time, then I'll gladly help out if I'm able to. The same is probably true of the other mods and some of the more talented hackers around here. Then if anything useful comes out of those ideas/speculations, that info will make it into the technical areas.

The moderation may seem harsh, but we need to keep the technical areas in check (especially the kernel hacking forum) for all the reasons Robinsod has already stated. This place went to $#!t after the Xteme FW was released here, it took months for us to get the technical areas back on track and, like Robinsod said, we lost some of the best hackers partly because of it. It can't happen again.

Ok. Thanks for the calm response and explanation.
