What version am I???
So I'm looking at ordering a mod chip and installing it but I can't figure out what version PS2 I have! I have looked at a couple web pages but none of them seem to have my model? this one does http://www.mod-chip.com/ps2version.htm but it says it's v9, which i find hard to believe. I tried to get the MC exploit going but to no avail (although that could be my fault... yes I did BIDATA-SYSTEM and all that, ftped to it many times with many different configs but the PSX game always boots)
anyway, could someone have a look at this please:
I have a japanese ps2 SCHP 50000 NTSC/J (the white W32 one)
CD Player 2.00
PlayStations Driver 1.02
DVD Player 3.02
a couple quick snaps of the back of my machine:
I'm assuming because it's made in China that it's a V11?
oh yeah, the other option is if anybody knows where i can get it modded in japan and just let someone else deal with it instead :) I'm about 180kms north of tokyo
I think you have a v11. If it doesn't play the exploit then it's a v11. Funny thing about the PSX Driver because my v9 uses the 1.11 driver but then again it's a US system. I dont know about any japanese modders but keep looking around. I hope this post helps and enjoy your white ps2!
well thats the thing, i can't say that it definetly doesn't run the exploit, it could just come down to my stupidity. And yeah, like you said, that psx driver is whacko. And here I thought I was all cool with a white playstation, and it just creates more problems than it's worth :(
If I open up the ps2, what should I be looking for to distinguish between V10 and V11?
Maybe I have a V10.5! :)
The v11 should have a GH-029 motherboard while a v10 should be GH-026. I hope this helps.
And V9 has a GH-023 motherboard:P
To my knowledge, most white PS2s (from Japan and from HK) are V9/V10. Have yet to see a V11..
