    I had my slim PS2 modded at a store back in late Dec 2004, and but I didn't bother asking what modchip they put in. I want to know now because I'm trying to get CodeBreaker working on it, and I'm want to see if anyone has any way of making it boot with my chip. I'll describe what I have to do:

    - To play PS2 games (imports or otherwise), I just turn it on normally

    - To play PSX games (imports or otherwise), I have to price the reset button twice right after I turn the system on or reset it. Basically, as soon as the green light comes on.

    From searching on google, I found that the Messiah chip used this method to boot games, but I could only find confirmation for it being used for V3-V5 PS2's, not the V12 (slim ones), and I'm not even sure if there's a Messiah chip that supports V12's after searching. When I called the store that modded it they said it was either Messiah or NH9, they couldn't remember. I tried to search for information on NH9 but I had no luck. From the looks of things it seems more likely that it's Messiah to me, but then that's only because I couldn't find any relevant info on NH9's.

    Can anyone help me on this? =\

    I forgot to add, pressing the reset button twice turns off the chip and also shows the Playstation 2 logo, whereas turning it on normally bypasses the logo entirely.
