problem with CC2.0 installation..
problem with CC2.0 installation.. –
Alright here is the deal, I installed the chip on the motherboard (mine is a v4 GH-013), messed something up on the mobo, not positive what it is but the tray won't open when i hit the button, however, i uninstalled the chip and still have the tray problem...but games will play (just gotta unscrew the top of the drive to change games). So i just got done reinstalling the chip and the ps2 turns on, then goes to the white-ish screen with a image of a disk in the center of the screen and says Playstation2 Disk in the top left corner for a regular ps2 game, and the firmware disk gets the sony red screen, so obviously not only is the chip not working but is making it so normal games don't work either. Here is what i know i screwed up on the mobo: The SX wire location that is supposed to get bridged, ended up bridging something that wasnt supposed to so i tried using the desolder wick and one of the things on the mobo moved a little off location. And i noticed one of the pins coming off the chip the dvd wires hook to was bent a little and i straightened it out using a razor blade. That is what i know is wrong with it, but like i said without the chip installed it worked alright minus the tray not opening when the eject button was pushed, any ideas? (this is my second mobo, frist try someone else tried doing it and messed up, this time i tried doing it myself)
Oh, and it passed the BIOS LED test.
Just tried the reset 6 times thing to disable the chip and the game loaded fine, so it must be something with the chip obviously.
The CC's wont boot originals or back-ups until you have flashed the chip with the hacked FW/BM. This is why when you have an original game in the console recognizes the disc but wont boot it. I would suspect the reset/eject ribbon cable as your problem for the tray not to be ejecting.
actually, i did rip that partially, but i soldered wires in to connect the wires in the ribbon that were ripped and tested it with a multi-meter and the connections are good and nothing is bridged, so i don't think that is it. Somehow i just created a new problem though, i re-soldered my ground wires in and the 3.3v wire, and added a 3rd ground wire to an alternate spot listed on the manual (bought from mod-chip.com) and tried to run it and now it isnt even turning on....i get absolutely nothing from it.....so i disconnected the 3rd ground wire and tried again and still nothing. I have a new ribbon cable on the way what i did is just a temporary fix till it comes, but i checked all the wires in the ribbon for continuity and they are all good how i have it. I am stumped.
and i said in my first post when i put in the disk to flash the chip it gives me the red screen saying to put in a playstation or playstation 2 disk :-/
This indicates that your CDVD points are incorrect and/or not soldered well. The status LED cant check the CDVD wires, so if you get an "all clear" from the LED and your getting an RSOD you must assume that your CDVD points are not correct.

Moved the T0 wire to where the other guide showed and put in the HA wire and now i got the firmware installed and it's working like it should. but my tray still does not open when i push the eject button, the disk stops spinning and it acts like it is going to, then after a couple seconds the disk just starts spinning again. i am almost positive that is just something i screwed up on the motherboard though and i'll just have to deal with it unless i can find another GH-013 mobo for cheap.
Thanks a lot, I was about ready to give up on the chip and try a different one, glad I kept at it!
