A Multi region hack for LG BP125 Blu Ray Player?

Any one discover a hack to make it multi region?
When I go into the setup menu and click on Lock. I highlight Area Code and press enter, then i get two rows of four boxes. i enter O into each box and press OK. Then I get a box that displays a red oblong with GB and arrows above and below. The arrows can be moved left and right.
Then By using the remote keys up and down I can change the letters from GB to any other two letter combination. Is this the hack?

That's the player's country code, not the Region Code, it determines what language you rplayer menus are displayed in, what audio and subtitles a disc will default to. Until very recently it had nothing to do with Region locking.

A new trick that some distributors have discovered is to get a Blu-ray disc to discover a player's country code, and disable playback if it's outside that country (you can get round it by resetting the country code from the set up screen but not all players allow that.)
