Fake MI? –
Hi, i have a slim PS2 and i think i might have a fake Matrix Infinity. Currently it's on v1.88 firmware and I can access the options and save them. My backups work fine. Is there any way to know if it's a fake? I'd prefer not to open it, because it's still on warranty. Thanks in advance for your help.
Try flashing it to 1.93 or higher. If it's a clone, it'll be fried, if it's genuine, nothing bad.
Do you have a link for instructions on how to open it? In February my waranty will be over, so maybe i'll open it. Is it hard to open it? I opened a Dreamcast before, is it similar? Thanks again.
It's rather easy. Follow the tutorial, remove the screw between the controller ports and under the laser assembly. Turn over the board and remove the 4 screws holding the metal shield in place and now you can see the chip.
why would you got through all the trouble if its playing your backups fine..just enjoy it
