Hi there, sounds like a pretty stupid question to start with...but here's the thing I bought my system last year premodded and slightly used...its a scph 50006 (V9 if i'm not mistaken...) now when I came across these forums I started to realize that hey, I don't even know that there were different kinds of mod chips...over here when shops say "Its modified" that's that...no questions asked,,,so I'm starting to wonder with the BIG 3 and CC and all those, I'm wanting to know what kind of chip I have...Do I need to open up my unit? I'm afraid I might screw something up, or can I use some kind of software or method to indentify my chip? so i could know if it has hidden features...So far all I know is my ps2 does direct boot of PS2 backups,,,whether dvd, dvd9 cd, cd-r, Basically I can boot to launchelf and run homebrew coz its' chipped...can someone help?...:-pray:
PS...I also have another question...knowing that my ps2 is chipped I can run region 1 dvd movies burned or original however I'm unable to run region 3 or japanese anime dvd's? whats the catch isn't it that when you have a modded system its suppose to be region free???
