H2o Dev1 Mode
Hi again guys :)
Recently, I gave a try to the H2O modchip.
I must say that I'm very happy with it but for one thing.
DEV1 mode is a PITA to call, why not something easy like pressing triangle and reset?
Things get much worse when using with an HD installed. As all the HD owners among you already know, when the HD is connected, the boot up time of the PS2 gets longer, how much depends on the specific hard drive.
Well, what this does for the H2O trigger to enter DEV1 node is making impossible to get it right.
Is there any easier way to get in DEV1 mode with H2O on a V7 with a hard drive? The guy who brought me that PS2, took a CD filled with essential homebrew utils which he uses instead of using DEV1 mode. That annoying it is.
Is there any chance of making DEV2 mode work on this chip?
P.S summOne, if you read this, thx for making such a low price mod which works so well :) For people in Argentina is a godsend :)
I haven't tried this yet, but this is quoted from summ0ne:
for me this procedure works EVERY time:
1. console off for at least 5sec
2. hold reset till video.
3. wait 2 sec (if you tap too soon - it does not go into dev mode)
4. tap reset
with the hdd hold reset for 2-3 sec - as the video is delayed due to the hdd and your ps2 might turn back off if you hold the button till the video.
