I recently used up my 5 changes of the dvd region without realising( i stupidly thought it would warn me) and now my imac is locked in region 1 when i live in region 2.

if i restored my computer would i get to reset the dvd region again?

or does anyone know an easier way to overcome this?

 

thanks

    Regretably, there's no practical way to do it. Erasing and re-installing the software won't work as the counter is carried in the drive's firmware.

     

    Apparently there is a way to flash the firmware on some models, but that's pretty risky even if it works.
