    hahahaha... Rip it out.

    NO dont rip it out, i would take it back to whoever sold me the chip and installed and see if they will give u a refund or a replacement ORIGINAL infinity.

    Good luck.

    I got the p2 to boot up somehow.. After taking it apart and looking at my dodgey clone chip and putting it back together it booted up...

    So i thought while i had the chance i would upgrade to 1.39.
    So far no problems, although i will be taking it back to get the dodgey chip pulled out, dont even know if they themselves know they are installing clone chips.

    My guess is they do, anyone who installs modchips for a liiving should know the difference between the real deal and the fake stuff, its pretty obvious when u look at it.

    I wouldnt recommend flashing to 1.39, it might make ur chip a paper weight.

    i saw some fixes to be applied to the Modbo, but i guess it's better to use it as it is, and try not to pretend it's a real Matrix Infinity.
    It's a cheap clone. It does it work. Don't ask for more or you will be in troubles.

    just be safe and get a dms4 lite :p

    seroiusly though too many clones out there, but even the original has its issues with the slim ps2s, which is why I don't use it anymore.

    For slim my recommendation is magic kx+ with summ0ne fix.

    HELP ... Help, HELP.. :(((

    I had one of the original PS2 with the Mesiah 2 Chip and for many years now we became close friends... All that changed when the laser died on me!! :(((

    Even after getting it replaced, it was never the same, and within a few months it failed.

    I decided to get the Slim PS2 and have it MODed with the Matrix Infinity (all purchased and fitted today). When I got round to test my backups, only a few worked, but the majority will not load. I get the Playsation 2 (with Matrix Infinity 1.36) logo then the screen goes black and nothing happens.

    Please help!!! :(((

    I got it FIXED :))))

    First of all I got the chip replaced and the problem was not resolved. I then had it completely rewired (the chip) and still the same prob.

    Eventually, we were left with no option except that there was something wrong with the PS2. I got it replaced and got the new one chiped. It worked a treat.

    All up and runing.

    BTW> Have any of you had any problems with pixels? When viewing the FMV for Kessen 3, I notice that in some areas it is very pixalated (you can see the boxes). I have not noticed this with any other game as yet.

    I have the latest version of the firmware (1.39).

    I use a modbo in my ps2 V12 and it has been flashed to 1.39 without problems.

    As long as you don't touch the matrix setup screen all will work 100% like an original Matrix infinity.

    why being afraid of the clone chips? just tell your friends not to trie entering the menu or updating the chip. tell them what happens when they try and tell that the chips are cheaper and work just the same. why changing the config menu? there is no need. people just want to try things out, but they will defenetly not try if you tell them about the clones. why paying a lot more for chips that work the same as the much cheaper clones?

    if you can't update the chip you can't get future updates and added features, it is NOT the same and it's certainly not infinity ;-)

    Hi!

    I got pwned by ModBo too when trying to meddle with the confing screen. Has anyone tried using a v1.38 disk to reset'em? Has it worked?

    Thanks! ^_^

    You can safely upgrade your modbo tot the latest software (1.4(beta)).

    It works in 100% of the cases!

    Just do NOT TOUCH THE CONFIG SCREEN because it will fry your chip! (not the PS2, if you disconnect the chip and place a new one it will work like a charm)

    The modbo is a fine chip and it's cheap (11 Dollar)and works like a matrix chip so what else do you want? And why should you change the config schreen, everything is automatic.....

    And for all of u who have a modo chip and thought it's an original matrix: DO YOUR HOMEWORK BETTER BEFORE BUYING STUFF FROM PEOPLE YOU DON'T KNOW...... (and if you have been told it was an original and it 's not then the seller should be slaughterd like a false stray dog)
