Hey guys, it seems as if this FIRMWARE SUPPORTS SL DVD+R BITSETTING AND IS REGION FREE!!!!! REALLY. I USE THE NEW NERO VERSION 6.6 (for now only available in Germany in a PC-magazine) and I can change bitsetting in Nero and I can also see, that it's region free!
EDIT: And it seems to me, that the drive drives out a little slower, but maybe this is only imagination
EDIT2: Here are the pics (I uploaded them on club.cdfreaks!):
EDIT3: Don't know if bitsetting really works, doesn't tried it by now...
Also if rpc-state is working, I don't know, cause I don't have a foreign DVD or something like this.
