overcoming RPC-2 DVD drives

By felixlai ·
There are programs like Dvd genie that will fool any software region code protections, but I have always considered DVD-drives that have protection in the hardware (RPC2) to be unable to circumvent unless one changes or uses a patched firmware.
This belief was shattered when I downloaded the program from http://www.dvdidle.com and successfully used it to play a DVD movie foreign to my drive's region code. An inspection into my drive reveals that its region code has not been changed nor the change counter decreased, but somehow my foreign DVD plays when the program is active.... Can anyone shine some light on how they managed to do it???
