The MontBlanc trick did work with LG UBK90 region 2 Fr (02/2018).
I tried several times in order to find the good one.
In the end, it works with:
- CDRW. (not a DVD...)
- path /Violet0000/Rubicon
- "MontBlanc.DVD" file (search the internet, you'll find it)
- Windows 10 explorer "inhouse" utility to burn CDR
Not sure that the uppercases matter...
To burn the CDRW, Windows 10 Explorer utility worked fine for me: choose "CD option" (not USB option) after erasing the CDR (if it's an
old one), and then, juste copy/past the /Violet0000/Rubicon/MontBlanc.DVD to the CDR ; delete all unwanted files (such as the one that
is automatically created by this damn windows) and burn the CDRW.

Doe it work with a CDR? I've tried a few times with no luck.
The LG UBK90 keeps saying "check disc"

The MontBlanc thing does work on the LG UBK90 for DVDs. Region Free hack can play any DVD.
But not for Blu-Rays that are not Region Free.

I can confirm that the region code hack works on LG UBK90, FR, bought in Germany.
Please note: I tried this with the Montblanc.txt file from the avforums link plus the one from mega.nz with CDRs burned on a Mac. It did
not work, no matter what I tried. The LG player would always just say "Data disc" or "check disc".
Threw away several burned CDs.
In the end I burned the file from the link below on a Win7 laptop. Worked like a charm.
I used the download link from the LG BP440 hack: https://mega.nz/#!CQFz2TAK!1BO7aSN--BFL_sEhneyfVgiQ3ZUzHGinvlycQEvdmpw
It has the whole file structure you need.
Drag the Violet0000 folder onto a CDR, do not set to "USB" (default option), instead set to CD/DVD (master) and then burn it.
If anyone can figure out what the problem on the Mac is, please post here.

Can anyone confirm that the Montblanc CDR hack actually works with U.S. sold LG UBK90ís?
I have a LG UBK90 purchased at Costco here in the U.S. and have tried two different burned Montblanc CDRs.
The player responds with ďCheck DiscĒ every time inserted.
Iím only trying to play some Region 2 DVDís, not blu-rays. I purchased the complete set of Kojak DVDís on Amazon, and it turns out they are Region 2.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

For people who are struggling to get the CD to work and you're using a Mac to make the disc: read this!
STOP USING YOUR MAC TO DO THIS
The Mac puts extra files everywhere and that's what confuses the player.
If you can, do the download and burn on a windows PC, or use something like Parallels
Get the file from here as before https://mega.nz/#!CQFz2TAK!1BO7aSN--BFL_sEhneyfVgiQ3ZUzHGinvlycQEvdmpw
Extract and prepare that whole structure to go onto a CD.
Make sure (if using parallels) that you open every folder and delete any .DSstore files.
Also make sure that Windows burns the disc 'as a CD' rather than 'As a USB' (if it asks). And delete the desktop.ini file if it tries to
place that onto the disc before the burn.
Using Windows to burn this using Parallels did it for me, after I'd made sure to delete the extra files that Macs seem to infest zip files
This was using a UK Region 2 player.
Thanks to Thymianstryche above who gave me the clue as to what might've been causing it when they mentioned they were using a

Need a crack for this player, to change from region 1 to region free
Montblanc not work

Has anyone used the MontBlanc method on an LG UBK90 that is North America Region 1? I've tried all
suggested methods and always get 'check disk' on the CDR that I create.

I bought the LG UBK90 yesterday and successfully applied the hack yesterday.
After unzipping, you must burn the "Violet0000" folder to a CD. I recommend using a CD-RW.
If you did everything correctly you should see this picture after inserting the CD:

I just found this post and tried it:
I have the LG UBK90, since 2 plus years already - German region 2.
Found a DVD in my collection that was a Region 1, so DVD didnt work (previous player was code free).
I followed the instructions, downloaded the zip file and unzipped it.
I use CDBurner XP on my Windows 10, and "copied" (burnt) the Violet0000 directory (including all sub
I used a very old Verbatim CD-R disc.
Inserted into Blu-Ray player and was immediately asked for a code :-)
I selected code "0" assume this is for "region free" - tested my region 1 and it works perfectly!
Thanks for the help forum, I am well chuffed - like the cat who licked the cream :-))
Montblanc definately works.
