    Freeboot 0.032 is region free anyway, so you shouldn't have to do anything to them. If you're still on xbr then I don't think there are any apps to do it on the 360, but you only need to transfer the main .xex and patch that, don't have to do the whole game.


    I assume you are talking about the 360 and have a Jtag box. If you're talking about the original, then you don't need to do anything and a flashed 360 you can't break the region lock.

    If they are GOD installs region should not matter.
    You can get region free patches for freeboot/XBR (not sure if/when they got built in by default)
    Xexmenu and FSD (and presumably their alternatives) do region unlock when ripping from disc

    Worst case scenario- you transfer your default.xex (at internal/local network speeds it will probably take longer to load up the FTP client and dial in than to transfer it) back to your PC and unlock it via xextool.

    edit: too slow it seems but I will leave it up.
    @Armadillo you might not be able to bypass region locks but you can change region if you have the CPU key for your 360.
