Trying to clarify situation on BD-MOD.com (need Chinese language help)

    Looking at this firmware mod for Oppo 203 player:

    http://bd-mod.com/oppo.html

    BUT, he says here:

    I'm not quite sure what this means. I tried e-mailing and asking him if the Chinese modded player he's selling can ship to the USA, and if it has to stay at the 1209 firmware, or if he can provide later updated firmware mods for it, and he replied, "yes $900 include 203 player and jailbreak firmware and shipping / YES ,the latest firmware wont open."

    So that doesn't make it any clearer. The problem I think is there is a language barrier. I really need someone who understands written Chinese to talk to him and translate. (I can only dream of having this skill.)

    What is SOUNDS LIKE to me, is:

    - The Oppo 203 can still be modded, but ONLY if it is a Chinese model player purchased in China. You can order one from him and he will put the mod on before shipping.

    - Here's what's really unclear... he says, "The 203 sale in china, can update to latest firmware ,if you need ,can buy player from china". That either means: 1) He can continue to provide jailbreak firmware updates for the China model 203 player via e-mail / private links, or 2) He can **only** provide 1209 firmware for the China model player (i.e, there won't be any future mod updates), but it can be flashed (overwritten) with a later official Oppo firmware update, which will of course put back on Cinavia and region locking.

    Of the two things above, I'm not sure if these are **physical** limitations due to Oppo having to change their encryption method due to the BDA (Blu-Ray Disc Authority?) warning, or if it's a legal issue of him having to comply due to legal pressure.

    Finally, I'm wondering if he will be able to offer firmware for the upcoming Oppo 205 player. I tried asking him that, but he didn't answer that question.

    If anyone can e-mail him in his native language asking for clarification, or if anyone just already knows what's up with this, I'd really appreciate the help!

    @Pelvis Popcorn you might be able to find out if he has an agent in Hong Kong or Singapore and perhaps those agents may be able to provide a more idiomatic translation of the service he is providing. Just a thought

    So is he going to give you your money back or does he hope to find some way to get you your jailbreak firmware?

    I had some 105D players I wanted that firmware for. EVERY TIME I want to get custom firmware I get blocked it seems. :(

    I tried e-mailing but haven't received a reply yet.

    But, I don't see why he would sell to me if he can't sell to you.

    It sounds like my interpretations were wrong... it appears that the only thing he sells now is the 203 player with his mod on it, which has to be shipped from China.

    USA.

    Are you in Europe with a European model player? You could try http://www.bluraysolution.com/, but he only supports European Oppo players for some reason. :(

    It's very odd that he left 1209 firmware up on site, removed 1229 update, why would it be OK to leave 1209 up? Also its unclear how chinese Oppo will be updated
