Just got the latest batch of CC1.1s and seems there are major defects or problems with this new batch. Mind you I have installed many chips before and consider myself a expert installer.
Ok here is the problem Installed one in a v12 was able to flash the chip. With a known working upgrade disk I have used many times before. Used R19 Firmware. When trying to boot a backup it goes to the browser and shows a PS2 disk but will not boot. Tried hitting X at the browser to boot the disk it just goes right back to the browser. I figured OK maybe bad chip so I removed the chip and wiring and put in a new one with new wiring and got the same results was able to flash but would not boot backup. I then tried R18 firmware and got same results. The second console I did was a v14 Installed the chip no problem but when trying to load the firmware all I get is the disk starts to load then to a black screen On both the R18 and R19 firmware. So Again I put in another NEWchip and redid the wiring again and get the same results. Now I am thinking WTF.
Chip markings on PROASIC plus
Please don't say install error and please don't say bad firmware disk I am 100% positive its not either.
The next test I am going to put one in a older console and see If I get the same results. I also have a V5 with the CC1.0 I am going to replace it with one of these new batch of chips and see what happens.
Heres a high res of the v12
