Flash 2.0 finally released
We are pleased to announce the release of flash upgrade 2.0. You can download from the Flash upgrade section. The flash has been released initially in BIN and CUE format. We hope to add other release versions over the next few days, but wanted to get the release to our patient users ASAP :P
Enjoy the update and apologies for the delays.
A word of caution though. The DMS Flash upgrade process requires that the MOD has been installed properly (Check the installation practises page tutorial) If you have used a Ground wire which is too long or of insufficient thickness, or if the other CDVD, Clock or BIOS wires are routed messily or are too long then it is ikely that the upgrade process will fail. Poor installation is the cause of 99% of upgrade failures. If you expeience problems upgrading to flash V2.0 then it's more than likely an installation problem.
So in the case of failure, we would suggest that you ensure that the provisions for installation shown on our "Installation practises tutorial" page have been met.
The flash upgrade process draws a lot of current, if the POWER and GND wires are to long or not thick enough, the upgrade will fail.
Even if the MOD works well enough to boot games, with a bad installation, there is no guarantee that the improperly installed MOD can be upgraded. Please take care of your installation.
We have tested flash upgrade by CD on many different versions of PS2 without any issues.
