    Hello, I am a Console Modder from the UK.
    I have modded two systems with a Modbo 5 and a system with a Matrix Infinity that says it's genuine on the selling website page.

    The problem I am having is, I believe the Modbo 5 chip is a clone from the Matrix Infinity and you can't upgrade the firmware on them. But I have gone and set the settings on one of the systems to VGA and I can't get it back working again, all I am having is a black screen on the TV. Anyway I have tired going into recovery by holding the reset button down until the blue LED light shows. For some unknown region it's not going into recovery and straight to the PS2 menu.

    The same is happing with the Matrix Infinity, can not get into recovery by pressing down the reset button.
    On the Matrix Infinity system I have tried updating the firmware. But it will just show a fail programming message. Any ideas on what to do? I'm starting to hate this Modchip and the Modbo 5 altogether.

    The Matrix Infinity is a blue chip with about 20 solder pads around it.
    Is it a clone or a genuine?

    Thank you
