Any way to baypass Macrovision?
Any way to baypass Macrovision? –
Hi all. I was intrested in using usb advance to help my lens from burning, i heard that is a bit slower and the FMV are chopy, but my problem is that the usbadvance dont boot.
I search a little and i think my problem is the chip (a mars 805 sl in a v12). i readed something about macrivision problem, and due my chip that cant be configure, i cant use this program. Is there any way to baypass this, or another version of the program that can boot in my v12 console?
Thanks in advance.
Edit: i forgot to say that i formated the hd with usbadvance tools, and the others programs recognice it, but the only program to play games from usb dont even boot. I dont think it helps but i think it is not problem of compat of my hd
I don't know much about modchips or macrovision, but I don't think that is your problem.

Since the chip is then turned completely off, the macrovision fix should also be turned off, but since the chip is off you must use some other means than usual to boot up and start USBadvance. (Both Dev1 and CD-R capabilities are also OFF.)
The alternatives I know of are:
1: For old fat PS2 models, boot from MC using the common PS1 Exploit
2: For most (any?) PS2/PStwo models, boot from MC/USB using SwapMagic pressed disc
3: For any PS2/PStwo model, boot an original USBextreme pressed disc
If the clone doesn't allow such booting, to turn chip off, then it's impossible to use USBadvance or USBextreme on that console.
However, judging from what info google showed me for the Mars 805 chip, it's doubtful that it is any clone of the MI. But it should still be possible to boot with the chip in 'sleep' mode. According to the instructions I found that is done by pressing the reset button for a long time, until the screen shows a picture. (No, I don't know how it should look.) Then you open the cover and insert an original PS1/PS2 disc. That is where you can insert the SwapMagic or USBextreme disc (assuming you have one). Then you press Reset again but in a normal way (just a brief push) to start booting that disc.

See? I told you I didn't know much about modchips or Macrovision.
