I know its hard but dont put cinavia as an issue! What you should say is that you would like to revert to an earlier firmware as you believe the software was better implemented there. The more Cin*a*ia talk is here - the more likely it is that the site is going to be removed. So please try and be thoughtful.
Anyway, is there a firmware version that has the features you want? Or did your bluray player already come with it. In that case it may be much more difficult to remove.
The player was June 2012 manufactured and the firmware that came with it already was bugged.
I havent upgraded the firmware. I dont really know whether there exists any earlier firmware without the issue.
Thats why i am here for help, just in case.
Is there any way to get this player region free (I'm in a region 2 European country) - I've tried the hack with the on/off, eject in/out, waiting for "no disc" and pressing stop (or return) and punching in 5 digits - but with no luck (and I blame the new firmware)
So - any idea if I wasted the money?
I'm in the same situation than Andycqos, idollar, akshayadv, Michaelsplint and takuhii.
I'm owner of a BD-E5500 (DVD Region 2), and this player can't be region free with firmware 1018, so impossible to play DVDs region 1 (that don't exist in region 2). Try to downgrade with procedure in first page of "BD Firmware Downgrade (SamyGO Proof of Concept)" thread, but it seems that product still not supported now by Samygo (Message : No new firmware shown).
Some help would be very appreciated.
Thanks a lot.
I just bought the BD-E5500 with region code 2 and wanted to remove the region code - however this seems to be impossible with the 18 Version firmware. I would really appreciate if you could make it possible for me to revert to a previous firmware version (tried proof of concept - unfortunatelly not working as described before).
Thanks a lot in advance and best wishes,
I tried to downgrade the firmware in order to apply the region hack, but the firmware downgrade does not work ("no software to upgrade currently").
First, is there an easy way to check if the DNS change worked? In the network status page, it clearly says DNS Server 126.96.36.199, but it says "network set up complete, but cannot connect to the Internet". Under IP settings, it says DNS Mode "auto", and then the DNS server 188.8.131.52 in grey font.
If the DNS change was done in the proper way, then it might be the case that SamyGo is currently not supporting this firmware downgrade, or it might not be possible to downgrade anymore from my firmware version onwards....
Please help!!!!! Obrigado, Gracias, Thanks, Danke, Merci.
