I've installed the MI Chip, it boots probably 50% of the time. Half the time it hangs on the 'Matrix' splash screen. This is with a legit game. I've tried several real games (not burnt) and they all act the same.
If I disable chip by holding 'start' on pad 1 while booting, it shows disabled, and boots 100%.
FW is at 1.68 according to splash screen, I've not flashed it yet.
How critical are the wiring paths, ie, is noise a possible problem?
