Doing so is unsupported, unsupportable and if you decide to do this you accept all the risks. Didn't those around you tell this?
Any advice on flashing a MATSHITA DVD-R UJ-898? Trying to get this to play multi region DVDs in VLC.
It's reached the limit on the times it's been changed on this 2011 macbook pro. And sadly, the only MatishitaFlasher I could download won't open: "You can't open the application MatishitaFlasher because PowerPC applications are no longer supported."
I'd spring for a slot loading USB DVD player if I knew I could get one that was multi region or could be successfully flashed and put in the computer.
Worried I'm up a DVD creek.
