v9 Matrix MXL 2 chip not working
Chipped my first v9 (UK SCPH-50003) with a Matrix MXL 2 (v9/v10) version. At first it only booted up sometimes and the PS2 logo appeared corrupt as well, and from time to time it just froze. I suspected the BIOS wires first, so I rewired them all and made sure of no bridges or solder splatters. Now I keep on getting RSOD when using backup media, original UK games are fine though.
Its as if the Matrix MXL 2 is dead or in sleep mode. I soldered the via points as I don't have any razor blades, and personally I'd rather stay away from the controller legs since I've had bad experiences in the past. The thing is all I've changed was the BIOS wires?!?!
