    Disabling the Messiah2:

    Go to page 11 for disabling the messiah 2.


    Disabling the Magic 3.1:(sleepmode):
    To turn the modchip off (to play PS1 games that may detect the modchip): Turn off the PS2 (go to standby) and hold reset for at least 5 full seconds. The next time you reset the PS2 the modchip will turn itself back on.

    To turn off the Magic 3 (or atleast the 3.1) you have to hold down the reset button for approx 5 seconds before you boot up your PS2.
