Hello Everyone. Lately I bought at Walmart very nice 4k Upscaling samsung bluray player BD-JM63 which has many very nice features like built in WiFi, 4k upscaling, smart tv functions (apps), internet browser, streaming of netflix youtube 3d and so on.

It supports over usb very many file formats (huge list), can all share android phone.
The only problem with this player is it can play only bluray A and dvd 1 zones.
I have bunch of Pal Dvds with free zone mark, but player does not read them by showing such message:

Cannot play this disc.
The video format of the disc does not meet required video output format of this product.
Disc purchased from abroad may not be playable.

But when you look in file support page, you can find there 24, 25 30 50 60 frames. and also it can read Pal films when recorded on disc as rips or files.
When I open disc tray and press long on Info button it shows such message:

Region: :A/1 (BD/DVD)
Main Touch IC : :BSP-JM63WWT-0010

As far as I understand current version of firmware is 1005. When I run update firmware, it finds no new firmware, so probably it the latest firmware.
Does anyone had any luck or used any codes in order to unlock this awesome piece of hardware from samsung?
If so, can you share it with community?

Official firmware will never solve a region issue, Samsung have always been virtually impossible to "hack".....and Blu Ray players in general are virtually impossible to "hack".
Well it is very helpfull. Do you know how to install unofficial firmware with hack in it already installed or how to hack device with code in order to jailbreak it from dvd zones?
How people find all those hacks? Do they use service manuals or some other info from somewhere else?
Firmware and "hacks" are two completely different things.
As far as "all these hacks"....it's safe to say that unless you bought it from a specialty retailer that deals with "region free" players....there is no hack nowadays. You are about a decade too late to expect to find a hack for a player....especially a Blu Ray player.
Having grown up in the US I know your pain. You have TWO hurdles in your way....Region AND Video Format(NTSC vs. PAL). Everywhere else only has Region Codes to worry about.
If you want a region free Samsung Blu-ray player, you had better buy one that has already been made region free: http://www.220-electronics.com/samsung-bd-j5700-region-free-blu-ray-player.html Note that region-free for Blu-ray is an option costing an additional $40
