10.6: The return of unlimited PRAM zapping
Authored by: cliveports on Oct 08, '09 12:34:30AM

As one of the things PRAM zapping does is "DVD region setting" then a two go limit would be understandable, as I recall on PCs you only get a couple of attempts allowed at setting/changing the DVD region of the drive so this actually does make sense to me.

10.6: The return of unlimited PRAM zapping

If I understand correctly then it's not about the total number of times the PRAM can be reset. It's about how often one can do it while holding down the keys in a single attempt. So: how many times one can hear the startup boing using the procedures from Resetting your Mac's PRAM and NVRAM.

Resetting the PRAM doesn't change the DVD drive's region - that would be catastrophic, as there is indeed a limit as to how many times you can change that (it's 5, if I remember correctly).
