We finally got our first batch of authentic Magic 3.1 Reds in. Popped it in a 010 no-gap BIOS. Here are the results.
Boots all as advertised, PS2 CDR, DVDR and blue and silver bottoms. However, the bug is that the logo is highlighted on boot just like the Apple chip!
We have only been able to test an 010 so we are unsure if this problem is on the other versions as well.
PSx findings: Game tested: Original NTSC US Dino Crisis with mod detection
I get the software terminated message when booting the original Dino Crisis with mod detection.
PS2 DVD9 update: Game tested: Gran Turismo Concept 2002 Tokyo Geneva
It does not work with DVD9 on a 010 BIOS unit. I replaced the laser with a fully working one and got 1 successful boot out of 20+ tries. Hopefully this is only with the 010??
The Yellow PS2 auto-boots all. PS2, PS1 stealth and DVD movies.
