I expected it would, so what about the idea of a switch to turn it on after you already have the firmware disc on screen ready to press start, anyone know, by the way I dont have a clone chip so cant try it myself, just trying to help those who were led to believe they had one and flashed without knowing
I would think that the clone protection would stop the chip from being able to load the basic loader and so stopping the ability to flash.
Oh well, in my view I think if you do the upgrade and it kills your chip then you should take it back to the modder who installed it!!
I am a modder myself and I dont think that paying an extra £10 for a fully functioning MI originial too bad, and I install these all the time
If you want cheaper then use the MX4 etc.
Sorry if I drifted into 'dont use clones' mode there
Thanks Munkle (?? right??)
I'll be working on this - that's what I'm planning on doing. Wiring up a switch, and then starting it last minute. Something tells me, however, that the firmware upgrading software would interact with the bios loaded from the chip when the PS2 was started.
It's well worth a try, tho. One dude also managed to work out a hotswap flashing method on the MI upgradability thread. I'll also see if it is of reasonable challenge, and give it ago if it isn't prohibitively difficult or expensive.
I'm really glad that we're working on this here.
