Optiarc AD7170S, region free firmware

Hey guys, I’ve tried to get regionfree firmware working on my Optiarc AD7170S, but so far without fail. To add to the thing of it, it appears the name of it has changed and Sony have something to do with it all?!

Basically, I hate to be a leecher, but I don’t really have any interest in the ifs/buts/whatnots and who did what with the company, but all I need is some firmware that will either allow me to reset my DVD Region, or one that disables it altogether.

I use to live in the UK, now australia and its a hassle with all my DVD’s.

thanks for your time

RPC1 firmwares available here:


Or you could use a software based method using Slysoft’s Anydvd or DVD Region Free

Hey jubjubbird, I had tried liggydee’s firmware already, but the one I downloaded (http://liggydee.cdfreaks.com/fwinfo/en/7170s/103bt and http://liggydee.cdfreaks.com/disclaimer/en/7170s/1m1_orig.zip.html) didn’t seem to make any difference even after reboot.

I tried looking for something similar, but thus far without finding anything…

thanks again though
