Crystal Chip problem! –
Hello guys! I install crystal chip v2 but i have some problem!
Anytime it wants, it loose the firmware......what i mean! I play my copied games
fine but anytime (etc after 1 month or the next day) i must install upgrade the firmware again to continue play else it does not play nothing! Why this happen?
Please help me!
That's a known problem and sadly there's no solution. It just happens and nobody knows why.
Sorry, but you have to live with it, or get another chip.

It probably uses a rechargeable battery or capacitor of some kind and when the charge is gone so are your settings / firmware. Similar to the CMOS battery.

The CC 2.0 uses flash memory to store the FW and it's unlikely that a flash looses its content after a day or two. My CC for example also lost its FW a few times in the past, but has been stable for 2 years now. Some people have never encountered that problem and others have to re-flash the FW regularly.
All in all it's quite mysterious and I don't think the answer is as simple as a decharging capacitor. But who knows? I definitely don't.

I have noticed that with my crystal if I turn the ps2 off buy pulling the power plug out or switching off at the wall while the game is still running than this problem is more likely to happen (not always though). If I turn it off via the reset button I don't have this problem.
Not sure why this is but thought I would mention it !!
A mate of mine was having the problem quite often. (he was turning his ps2 off by pulling the pwr lead out) Now turns off with reset , Problem gone.
Ive only had a problem during the FMCB testing with jimmikaelkael in an attempt to get FMCB working with a CC 2.0 SLE. During one of the rom dumps, it lost the firmware and screwed up the testing until i realized it was gone.
I re-installed and havent had any problems since, so maybe there is something that causes it to 'self-delete' or corrupts the boot file. I dunno either as its never happen again.
