    Possibly, but it might be that the actual game's code is detecting the region thus you'd have to modify the games code to get it to run. That said, it might be as easy as swapping some files or hexing something [​IMG]
    I'm hoping it's the latter.

    All the new tools and stuff seem just to rely on the SD card adapter, which has nothing to do with mod chips [​IMG]

    He's refering to the release of the resigning of isos with modified content. Thus one might be able to modify the iso and remove the region protection.

    We have two exploits where homebrew can develop from now. After someone writes a special loader or a custom firmware, full region-free won't be far away.
