Region Settings... Pretty curious about this option
So, I'm not a REBUG user, however I've been looking for a way to permanently change the region of a PS3 (for example, PAL to NTSC).
I've been messing with the Region Settings option, and it looks pretty promising. My console is a PAL console. I've tried North America and Hong Kong settings.
Seems to work very well so far. It changed the lowest resolution from 720x576 50Hz (PAL) to 720x480 60Hz (NTSC). The Hong Kong option also switched the X and O buttons like the Asian models are. However, Recovery Mode and System Update mode are still 720x576 50Hz.
However... I tried flashing a non-REBUG firmware with the region setting set to NA, and after installing, XMB is still in 720x480!
So it does look like this option has the power to (almost) completely and permanently change the region of your PS3. What I'm wondering now is, would it make it accept NTSC PS1 and PS2 discs instead of PAL ones, with either REBUG CFW or with flashing a non-REBUG fw later? This is what I'm after.
Thanks for the help :P
