Hombrew to Infinity help! –
Im gonna buy a PAL PS2 with a matrix infinity chip on it. The thing is that the chip will probably have the hombrew firmware on it becouse of all the laws and stuff in my country.
Will i be able to reflash it into the infinity firmware by buring the driver onto a cd?.
Ive read some post about people not beeing able to boot cd:s if they have homebrew installed. Are they just stupid or is it something to worry about?
Well the firmware upgrade is homebrew, so it should boot no problem.
but arent "backups" disabled with the homebrew?
wich one is easiest to flash? Matrix or Crystal? and wich is most stable?
Yeah backups won't with with the homebrew firmware. But I believe you can reflash it with the full firmware, and thus enable backups. I don't know about crystal, but Matrix you just burn the file to cd, and then pop it in the PS2
ok, just a little bit worried that the ps wont run the firmware cd becouse it also is a burnt cd. Do i have to run through the "hold down the reset button" procedure or do i just have to turn on my ps2 and put in the cd?
Just toss the cd into the PS2. Only time you'd have to do some procedure with reset is if for some reason the firmware upgrade crashes for some crazy reason and you need to enter recovery mode.
Don't worry about it. They've got that part covered. It's actually kind of funny how it works, but I won't bore you with the details (I haven't worked them all out yet anyhow).

convinced my seller to sell it to me with the infinity firmware so thats solved
Well, for the people who would want to know about the deal with the homebrew version. It's like this
You can run everything with it, except commercial games. This is only cause of the laws in some country's. But, you can easily update the firmware and then you can boot backups. The chip is identical when you buy it. But the firmware is different.
