Limitless switching between DVD regions on MacBook Pro?

Limitless switching between DVD regions on MacBook Pro?

Is there a safe way to remove the limit (6?) of DVD region switching on the MacBook Pro? I'm a multi-region kind of guy and this 'feature' dives me nuts. On the interwebs I see many 'tools' that scare me...

"You can reflash the DVD drive's firmware to make it region-free,

I've used this on a Macbook Pro without any issue, but be cautious, and make triply sure you use the right firmware for your drive"

"As mentioned, using VLC should let you get around the region limitations in software.

As far as the switching goes, that is a hardware-based limitation, and no, you can not change it."
