Toshiba 4900 Won't keep 0 Hack

I just purchased a Toshiba 4900 and followed these instructions:

This hack works:
Follow the links above... to the instructions posted by NEO... for the LG 6054 using the LG 6188 hack.
1. Downloaded the file from:
http://mypage.bluewin.ch/a-z/chaos-k...s/RMTM0000.sit
2. unpacked the RMTM0000.sit file with "StuffIt Standard Edition 8.0" (http://www.aladdinsys.com/downloads/index.html) Trail version.
3. Burned the whole DIR (RMTM0000) to a CD using Nero Burning ROM (ISO Level 1, Mode 1, ISO 9660)
4. Inserted the burned CD into the dvd, wait for the menu on the LCD of the dvd.
5. Pressed "0" then "PAUSE", turned the dvd OFF
6. That's it !!!, REGION FREE.

My problem is that I managed to get through all of it but after I enter 0,pause, and power off, when I load the machine back up it will not accept my japanese Hero. Then if i try to go back and load the hack disc again, it always displays the current region number as 1. Can anyone help me out to get my DVD player region free?

Hate to go into uncharted off topic territory here, but I came here with a Toshiba 4900 question as well...does the hack allow it to support DVD+R?

I am interested too. I was going to buy that DVD player. If the hack does not work, then I will not buy it.

Look in this thread
http://www.dvdtalk.com/forum/showthr...5&pagenumber=1
I have the 4900 and so far it has played the +R disks that I have and it keeps the region hack. There is also a setting to change so it will play SVCD.

I didn't experience the problem on my 4900......

Did you get the menu to come up on the LCD screen?

I wouldn't worry. I have the 3900 and it has worked for MANY different people. You just have to be precise as to how you burn the file...

The DVD player little screen reads "CODE 0" and that's what it stays on after the program exits and i get back to the welcome screen on my TV.

Did you try burning another disc?
I had no problems at all with the fix. Maybe try another disc also just to make sure it isn't the disc?
Sorry I don't have any helpful info.
