These steps doesn't work for me. I never see the "no disk" option during the hacking process
though I followed all steps correctly.

I have a Samsung UBD-M8500 Ultra Blu-Ray Player. There doesn't seem to be a specific hack to
make this region free. Been trying for days searching for something. Can anyone help? Would
also be good to be able to use the remote that came with it. I tried some smartphone apps, 5 of
them to be specific and none seemed to have worked to be able to input the code
