I just noticed TDB have released region free firmware for quite a few newer models of LG writers :
Even some of the OEM equivalents too :
So long suffering owners of these LG OEM drives are covered too!
All of these come in RPC1 and auto reset versions, so you can choose whichever suits your needs best.
Thanks to the TDB for all the work done getting the patched firmware done.
As usual, remember this is hacked firmware. Flashing a drive with hacked firmware will most probably void the warranty of the drive. Use at your own risk.
