1) Turn on the player. Make sure the tray is closed
and no disc is inserted. The Samsung logo should
be visible on the TV screen.
2) Hold down the PLAY and STOP buttons on the
front panel of the player. Within a few seconds, a
language select screen should appear. Press 1
(on the remote) for English.
3) The Samsung logo should reappear, with the
message "No Disc" on the screen and/or in the
front panel display. Now, press the following
buttons, on the remote, in sequence:
REPEAT, 5, 7, 5, 3, 8
Press them slowly and deliberately, but not too
slowly (if you're unsure, about one button press per
second is adequate). Don't take any notice of what
appears on the TV screen while you're doing this.
(Also, make sure you press the actual REPEAT
button and *not* A-B REPEAT.)
4) *After* you've finished the button sequence, the
number "02" should be visible in one corner of the
TV screen. This indicates your currently set region.
5) Press 9 on your remote - the number will
change to "09" - then *immediately* press
OPEN/CLOSE on the remote to open the tray. (You
*must* press OPEN/CLOSE before "09"
disappears from the screen.)
6) Wait at least 15 seconds then press POWER on
the remote - the tray will close and the player will
go into standby mode. Wait at least another 15
seconds then press POWER again to turn the
player back on.
You should now be able to play discs from any

I have successfully used leveller's hack on a European (R2) Samsung S325. The two wait sequences included in the hack descriptions for S225 were not needed. I could play a disc right after the tray was opened after the hack was applied. If RCE discs for other regions than region 1 start to appear then you will have to apply the hack quite often and it's good know it can be done fast.
Furthermore, step 2 was not needed for me, but maybe it should be included for safety reasons.
I have tested to change the player from Region 2 to Region 9 (all), to Region 1, back to Region 9 etc, and it works without no problems. Good to know that the Samsung player should be able to handle a future RCE R2 disc.
