My mate came along with a broken PAL V4 ps2 , which apparently has a no swap chip in. He wanted me to see what chip was in it and if possible transfer it to his V5 PAL ps2. Thought should be no prob , identify the chip and if it will work in a V5 change it over.
How ever I've come up against a little problem. The chip appears to be some sort of homebrew chip I guess. Two pics (I assume) covered in tape. 1 has most of the wires going to it , then a single wire going to a second chip which has a few more coming off it and going to the ps2 mainboard.
I can get pics if needed , but covered in tape (don't really want to remove , incase it breaks the wires , trying to save having to resolder to the chips) so don't know how much they will help.
Any idea's what it is? , mate reckons it's direct boot , but thought you had to buy them. Never thought you could program yourself , although I aint been up to date on chips since the original messiah came out. So I guess alot has changed.
Any help would be appreciated.
