[QUOTE=Bakst0ne;2749055]I wonder if rooting hardware players will also allow other hacks, like disabling “technologies” we would love to disable, while the Hollywood studios would like us to have them enabled
Will this rooting allow such kind of hacks?[/QUOTE]
That will depend on the specific player’s decoder chip, and whether/what certain types of mods are possible via simple code execution.
There’s already a CD available for years that will make some players region free for DVD playback. Other players are known to have firmware hacks available for things like BD region free, ISO mounting and Cinavia detection.
But getting any of that done from a JAVA environment is no small task, and considering the already available firmware hacks, there’s not much reason to.
