infinity and chip installers only doing V4+
infinity and chip installers only doing V4+ –
i wasnt quite sure where to place this topic cause it deals with modchips and installers.
anyway i have a V1 ps2 (im pretty sure its V1 cause i got it the very first day it came out..i cant check the number because i dont have it with me, im at school, ps2 is at home) and was reading around of chip installers and i noticed most installers say V4-V12. (not picking on anyone in particular just for example)
is the v1-v3 to much work to mod cause its to old? more wires more work etc?
i wanted to mod my ps2 with the infinity and started thinking..if installers dont like working the a V1 ps2, then probably other installers wouldnt want to either and wondered if it would just be worth while to buy a new used system higher than V3.
thanks for any input
you should just go buy a used system and send it off to them. I just bought a used Version 7 from EB games for $119 and sent it off to modchipman.com a couple of days ago. My PS2 just got to them and I hope I get it back with the Matrix chip and don't have any problems.
I suggest you find someone who is willing to install on this model if your console is still working well. I have a v3 model which doesn't like recordables but will read them as long as it's good media. but now I have a PStwo also which I will put a crystal chip in once I get one(you listening Santa Klaus? ) so I won't have media problems anymore I hope... Also pstwo is very nice looking to bad about hdd bay being gone though...
The reason is that the V1-3s are too old to read DVD-Rs.. the lasers are most likely too worn out. So instead of messing with them, most installers don't want any part of them. Even the V4s are getting too old.
Exactly. V1-3 aren't hard to mod (in my opinion), it's just like modding a V4. It's just that it's too old and laser is probably worn and only capable of reading machine pressed disc or nothing at all.
