Set DVD Player region code without admin password
Authored by: nvdingo on Jan 16, '09 07:28:07AM

in the interest of full disclosure, i would be interested in knowing by what mechanism the app is able to do this without the admin password.

Search for system.device.dvd.setregion.initial in http://developer.apple.com/technotes/tn2002/tn2095.html and now take a look at the preflight script in the package.

This software does not install anything, it just modifies the /etc/authorization file. I actually put more documentation on my website to explain it better.

I have more goodies coming as well!

Set DVD Player region code without admin password

maybe password protection comes into play when you try to commit the change using the UI. if this app changes it "behind the scenes" you could skip the pwd requirement.

that said, I wonder if changes via this app still increments the counter (you're only allowed to change the region 5 times, right?)
