Newb starter questions about V12 and h20 pro
Newb starter questions about V12 and h20 pro –
Im new to the whole PS2 scene, been mostly doing Xbox stuff.
I recently purchased an h20 pro chip mod from modchip.ca. http://www.modchip.ca/store/product....4&cat=0&page=1
Mainly I just want to play backups.
I'm getting a little confused on what diagram to use for install and what, if any extra fixes I have to do.
My mainboard is GH-035-21
Now from what I can tell, I have a V12 PS2, as the model no. is SCPH-70011.
So I would gather I should be using this diagram:
Here's another version I found of the diagram:
Now.... my questions about this are.....
1. on the second diagram it says "use thick and short wires for +5V1 and GND". Does this mean that the wires supplied with the chip are not sufficient and I have to go buy some new wire, or can I use the wires supplied?
2.Looking at the chip, theres a few areas with holes on the chip, such as the three holes around the GND contact. Am I to be concerned with these, or are all solder points on the chip, just regular old solder to the contact, not using any of these holes?
3.the V12 fix - What exactly am I doing here? Just cutting a track? If so, how do i do that? Whats all the stuff about R=303 RST=560 ohms, etc., do I need to be concerned about that? Why does it show pads J and K in the pic when theyre never used for anything that I can tell?
Since this is the pro version of the chip, it mentions something about having built in laser muting protection, is that what the V12 fix is, and can I omit it?
4.I got 2 very tiny little resistor type things attached to the bottom of my modchip. What are these for?
5.Once the chip is installed, good to go, is there any flashing to do, or is it just turn it on and go?
Sorry for the huge ass post and many questions, but I'm trying to get some good ideas about what I'm doing before I wreck my PS2.
This is much more complicated than an Xbox, thats for sure.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
ok here goes:
2 the holes r no problem
3 cut the track with a razor blade then look whats on the 2 resistors, if it says 303 put a 560ohm res in if it says 683 put a 2k in
4 these are (beleve it or not) the resistors youre gonna solder to your ps2on the place where Rst is on the last pic
5 Once it is properly installed it works right away.
First i wanna tell u that i never heared of a H2O pro and second $39 is waaay too much if you ask me but you do get the wires and so with it so i guess it's okbut still I pay like 15 euro for them.
