sorry if i came out like a smart-ass
but ive heard that the magic code is sold to many manufacturers.
not only the code, but also the pcb gerbers.
-so arguing if the "dark-red" or the "light-red" magicV is real is pointless
I see you fight for clones since you install a lot of them. That's kewl but I prefer quality chips. I have a bad experience with clones.
well not all clones are bad. i install only the ones that are reliable.
but the biggest piece of shit was dms3-v9, it used to crash before i found out that i have to solder a 5mmx5mm thick column of solder on the gnd point, and even that works barely.
-dude, what do you say to this:
takes 5min to install and sports the ICE-code of your choice.
works like a charm
i have both the chip and the flex-PCB factory made (top quality)
summone: really because if you make sure D and E are not crossing any other lines and are close to the board, I haven't never had a problem with a dms3 ..
there are clones of Magic product that look 100% as original. no way to tell now.
There was Magic V V5-V8, looks like a 50K/5k6 chip but no sticker.
then you have 50k chip, and then 5k6 chip.
then you have 5kx which is both the 50k, 5k6. which makes no sense they could of put more support than two consoles in it..
i hate modchip.ca so much. their customer support once youve bought from them sucks ass (you would think it would be the other way around). They not only sold clone Xeniums, but they sold supposed Magic V premods that really had the crappy messiah 3.2 in them. Its funny how much i used to trust them (i gave them at least 4 of the fake Magic pictures in their fake modchip page), but once i got my magic V and they wouldnt tell me all this shit you were "supposed to know," Ive never gone back to them. Thankyou message boards
Yeah, I noticed people crossing D & E wires with like 10 wires in pictures. I kept on wondering if it would work properly. Cause the one I installed it wouldn't even work correctly cause I was using 22AWG for ground. I needed 20AWG so I had to use 2 22AWG wire for ground. To make my point, it's a very sensitive chip.

but for gnd i solder 2 bare wires, 4mm apart and fill in the gap with solder.
results: works perfect, flashable etc.
cause before i could not flash it.
offtopic: how cheap can anyone get me SX chips?
(im talking 1k pcs of SX28AC/SS)
You didn't get blackscreens? With D & E wire crossing like that?
