I dont know which I should use? Which one is best? Any one? Thanks
yes - toxic os 1.4 is best for dms4 pro - the bios is for the lite versions
ok, now i'm confused. I would like to know the flash for the DMS4 Pro SE and the Flash for DMS4 PRO any links for downloading?
DMS 4 Pro: http://www.teamtoxic.com.cn/#DOWNLOADS
Burn it to disc with these instructions:
1. Unzip the firmware.
2. Insert your blank disc.
3. Open Alcohol 120%.
4. Go to File-->Open and browse to the cue file. Double click it.
5. Once it's open under Alcohol 120%, right click the cue file and click image burning wizard.
6. Select your recorder, leave the write method alone, set the write speed to 4x, set the datatype to PS2, and click next.

for a Pro or Pro SE use Toxic OS 0.41, you can use just the bios flash 1.4 but i wouldnt, always go with the OS on a Pro.......and it is 0.41, not 1.4 on the OS
[bold]EDIT:[/bold] and burning the Toxic flash disks at 4x often fails in the flashing process, always burn at max speed, i use 52x myself and it always works perfectly with TDK black disks.
Ok members who is right here? Do I go with faster burning and 0.41 version or 1.4 version at 8X???????
if you have a Lite version you have to use the bios 1.4
if you have a Pro version use the Toxic OS 0.41 which includes the bios 1.4
and regardless burn at max speed on a quality disk. Tokijin has done allot of homework on different chips, but i've flahsed more DMS chips then he's ever seen
I am going with the Pro hopefully the SE as I read that it is some what better? With modchips.com do they accept VISA? and how long does it take to get stuff from them?
the Pro has more flash memory onboard and can be used to launch more programs/elf's. they accepted all major cards last time i got chips from them and with USP express shipping you get it in 3 days from there (France) to the US
What did they charge for the express shipping and does it come with a wiring diagram with the tape to hold the chip?
Well if you say burning at Max speed with the DMS firmware doesn't matter KC, I'll believe that. However in general burning CD games at max speed is rarely a good idea, and everybody who's ever followed those instructions for burning the flash upgrade CD has been successful. But also personally I've never flashed DMS chips, though people have followed that guide in doing so successfully. I burn my flash CD's at 12x, as that's the lowest speed my DVD Burner supports for writing CD's. In general though, you don't want to burn PS2 CD-ROM games or PSX games at max speed. That is [bold]never[/bold] a good idea. Cheers!
you really don't do much research of your own huh???? if you look on the left side of their homepage, you see the shipping prices quite plainly. they ship with the wire and a few lengths of solder but the tape your on your own, i get mine at wal-mart, a roll has done over 200 mods and i still have quite a bit left.
everyone has their own opinions on burn speed but i burn all CD based disks at max speed, and most failed DMS flash disks were burnt at low speed and the problem solved with a max speed burn. what you choose to do is compleatly up to you and that is fine, but never say it's never a good idea for others as you do not know their setup and situation.
i've ran disk quality tests on allot of burns and all CD's come back with a greater then 99%.......DVD's on the other hand are a different story, i get excellent results with quality media up to speeds of 12x, after 12x my quality will start to drop past 96%, on some disks 16x will return as low as upper 80s.
Thats the problem, I dont want to get a whole roll, because I am only modding mine. No, I havent look on the left bar of the website. Didnt know if and who in this is legit after what I read about on these boards. Makes you worry about you cash. Thanks guys.
Well everybody's situation is different. I've burned about 100 PSX games at 4x and they all play perfectly. I've burned PSX games at max speed, and most of them didn't boot. Most people I've talked to recommend burning at slower speeds for CD-ROM games. To each his own, but I don't plan on changing my recommendation, it's never steered anybody wrong. Cheers!
the roll of tape is only a buck and has many uses, it wasn't made for installation of modchips and I'm sure Scotch didn't ever give that a thought when the produced it.
and not to start a pissing contest but top quality disks are produced with ink intended for faster burning speeds, burning at slower speeds causes overburn (through the ink)because of laser power control in allot of cases, your getting by because your slowest is 12x but burning those same disks at say 1x will most likely give you failures but no guarantee there either. a good 'rule of thumb' is divide the max speed of the disk by 4 and use that as your lowest speed for CD-R media.
Okay. I'm certainly no guru of CD burning. I didn't thing this was a "pissing contest" lol. It was merely a difference of opinion. I use crap CMC Mag CD-R's and most audio CD's I've burned at 48x play okay. I have a ton of PSX backups that I was thinking of copying to Sony CD-R's. It'd take awhile, but I know there's no way in hell CMC Mag is wearing down my modded PS2 with it's crappy dyes. As much as I bash CMC Mag DVD media, I'd be a pretty big hypocrite to use their CD media. Cheers!
can someone post how to transfer elf to memory card coz my ps2 is v14 it cant be flash via cd only through memory card dev mode. i have AR MAx if it cant be done easier.
which chip do you have? if you dont have a file browser built in you can execute launchelf and use its filebrowser to copy/paste the file from XXX to the MC.
i have a DMS4 SE PRO on a V14, i jus need to flash my chip so i can boot backups, etc. flash wit Toxic OS, my only option is to flash via memory card. or goto mates place and transfer elf to mem
