I have a slim PS2 and a Matrix infinity chip in it, and I was having problems playing Splinter Cell: Double Agent (I had a PAL version of it) I was told that my chip had integrated y-fix stuff at afterdawn.com, and I found out that by holding triangle+circle it'd show a config menu.
I did that, and I figured the firmware was old because that option wasn't there. In any case, I clicked "Save" and resetted. And now I cannot play any backups at all.
I thought that the fakes died if you tried to flash the firmware... would a fake also just die by entering the config menu? Please, any help would be appreciated, I live in a country where EVERYTHING is expensive as hell (paid 400 USD for this thing 2 years ago) and I honestly would be too heartbroken that I got ripped off...
