Take a blank CD-R or CD-RW and burn the file "MontBlanc.dvd" in folder "Violet0000\Rubicon". On
a CD-R or CD-RW will get the following structure "\Violet0000\Rubicon\MontBlanc.dvd", the name of
the CD is irrelevant. File "MontBlanc.dvd" should contain 4 bytes of hexadecimal format, 17, 17,
8C, 00. Good luck.

The method posted by Kgbond really works. Tested on LG BP450. Had to burn it with CD Burner XP in ISO9660+Joliet Level 1 mode.

I tried that hacking method with my BP250 but it didn't work. The player automatically ejected the DVD without showing the region code page and prompted me to check the DVD.

I downloaded a copy of MontBlanc.DVD from elsewhere and burnt it in the required folder structure
to a CD-R (finalised) using CDBurnerXP and it correctly patched my August 2018 UK model BP250.

Just unlocked dvd region on BP250 from Amazon.co.uk. Must use a CD (not DVD) and burn folder
structure and file should be "MontBlanc.dvd". Used built-in CD burner on Win 10: insert CD-R,
select type = dvd player, created folders and file, burned and finalised. Turned player on,
insert disc, turn off, turn on, got the region menu. Press '0' and then pause (those instructions
are on screen).

This hack worked perfectly for me! Now our trusty LG is region free for DVD. Still locked for
BluRay, but not an issue for us. Thank you so much.

This works on an LG BP250 purchased in UK Feb 2019. But note following. My first attempt burning a data CD in Linux using Xfburn resulted in a disc which was recognized as a data disc, but with un-useable content. So hack failed.
I burned again on a rewritable DVD (note those insisting only a CD will work!) in XP using Imageburner Portable (vers 126.96.36.199 (yes it's old!)) selecting ISO9660 + Joliet. That last bit seems important.

Download the .zip from https://www.avforums.com/threads/make-lg-bp125-dvd-player-region-free.1717812/page-3#post-26159056
Extract the .iso and burn to CDR (k3b on Linux is fine).
Insert disk, turn DVD player off and on.
Select 0, press pause.

1) Create a folder: Violet0000
2) Inside /Violet0000 create a subfolder: Rubicon
3) Download the MontBlanc.txt file here: https://www.avforums.com/attachments/montblanc-txt.873684/
4) Save it in the Rubicon folder as a .dvd file called MontBlanc.dvd (note: DO NOT save it as a text file. Change the file extension. If you cannot see the file extension, select "All File Types" on the extensions tab of the download window)
5) Your folder stucture should be like this: /Violet0000/Rubicon/MontBlanc.dvd
6) Drag and drop the Violet0000 folder (/Violet0000/Rubicon/MontBlanc.dvd) to your prefered CDR burner software.
7) Insert the CDR into your player. A black menu screen will appear with the current region code and a place to select a new region code. Select 0 for universal region.
PS.: If you can't download montblanc-txt file from the link above, try the link below:

I used the MontBlanc region hack by Reghana upto 4) for newly bought LG BP250
I burnt a DATA CD disc using the standard DVD/CD burner on a Windows XP machine (no luck on Win7) and I did NOT close it.
It worked perfectly! I now have a DVD region free(0)player (Blu Ray was already country settable)
Note....I then tried the same Hack CD on a LG BD650 AND IT WORKED ON THAT TOO.

Download LG-Multi-Region.ZIP posted by promo7uk from
Size: 651 bytes, md5sum 574cd7910ce3bf287c5d70eab959c613
Extract image file "LG-Multi-Region.iso" from the Zip Archive.
Burn the file to CDR with your favourite authoring software, I used Brasero.
Pop the disc into your LG BD250, mine was purchased in Sweden in May 2021, Firmware MAIN VER: BD.24088.90614C SERVO VER: H16S0N0100
A black screen with blue borders appear with text:
Region Management Test Mode
Current EEPROM_Region_Code 2
Press new region number(0-6) -
PRESS PAUSE key to exit.
Press 0 and the pause key on your remote.
I had some trouble finding the zip archive and tried to make my own burning CDR 3 times without luck, but the fourth time using the ISO worked for me, very happy being able to see my old US DVD again :)
Hope this is useful for somebody else.

I can confirm that the MontBlanc DVD hack still works on the LG UBK80 as of today (UK, region 2). I
bought my player yesterday and burned the Mont Blanc CDR today. I tried it in the player and the
screen to change region codes came up instantly. I pressed 0 as suggested and now I can play all my
old region 1s.
I just burned a CDR with the original instructions (download the MontBlanc text file, change the
ending to .DVD, keep the directory structure as mentioned). It absolutely will work if you follow the
instructions exactly (must be a writeable CD, not a DVD). I used the burner built in to Windows 10
without any problems.
