Updating samsung bd p1600 blu ray player
Read DVD Player region codes and Blu-ray region codes.
Hi Credit for this hack goes to RABSP, although I've modified it slightly.
5.) Just outof curiousity I also opened original XAA update RUF for comparison to this XAX RUF file.
6.) Other than XAX or XAA there are so many differences which we will never understand.
- download/unzip the firmware - using a Hex Editor edit the RUF file - locate the 3 letters code that identify the country of this firmware, (XAA for US)(XAC for Canada)etc...
- change to the your-model's country (see at BD-P1600 system information) - Follow the rest of normal procedure after that the remote control hack works perfectly ;) Actually I am trying to do same thing But my player is BDP-1400 US version locked to Region A & 1 for blu ray and DVD respectively.
To install a firmware from another country: - download/unzip the firmware - using a Hex Editor edit the RUF file - locate the 3 letters code that identify the country of this firmware, it's like XAA (for US) - change to the your-model's country (see at BD-P1600 system information) - Follow the rest of normal procedure Good movies!! The hack with an another Firmware (Brasil) works perfectly, before i have a A/1 region player, buy in canada and the hack with the remote control doesnt work, but now it works and i have a A/9 region free player.4) As soon as you see "No-Disc" displayed in the top left corner, press the REPEAT button followed by the 5 digit code for your current region as listed below.(Mine was 57538 for region 2) Don't press the REPEAT button for too long, just smoothly press REPEAT 5 7 5 3 8.A region 1 BD-P1600 bought in the US or Canada CANNOT be hacked using the remote control code, at least not without a firmware update.Here's what I did: I downloaded the USB firmware update from the Singapore Samsung web site ( Support Main.do) and unzipped the file.
