flashing the bios –
Hi everyone, just wondering for any mod chip installed on a ps2, does the bios have to be flashed. Why do people do it and what is the significance to it?
Depends on the chip. The DMS, Infinity, and some homebrew chips can be flashed. It sometimes offers fixes or more features.
oh ok, thx.
Im planning on installing a Magic V chip in my ps2, im guessing it doesen't need to be flashed...?
is this chip any good?
Nope the magic V doesn't need to be flashed. I have one and it works great.
kool, thanks for the feedback
btw can u run normal and imported dvd (movies) on it?
You can run regular movies but not imports with just the chip. You;d need region x or something like that.
Just buy a region free dvd player for like 50$. That's what I did. it'll put less wear on the ps2.
Could you flash a magic v (v5678) with say magic 3.2 code?
Or could you flash the BIOS on the ps2 from 030 to 040?
