Now you are making sense. But still, what about scratched and dirty discs? Do you think they would put the people who own the games out like that?

I still think it could be hacked. The hacker just has to do a dump of a successful boot and compare it to a non-successful boot and patch the chip with successful boot data. And the chip has to be active. It will have to continually hack the BIOS or hold an image like the Neo 4
The Yellow PS2 auto-boots all. PS2, PS1 stealth and DVD movies.
