Magic3 R16 on a NTSC v7/070 - Pulling my hair out!
Magic3 R16 on a NTSC v7/070 - Pulling my hair out! –
Great technical forum, I'm glad I switched to this site for my technical answers!
Alright, I burned the original M3 R16 .hex onto a few SX28AC's datecoded 9812 (that's old!). Good install with proper gauges, no splashing, continuity checked, OK.
I can boot original DVD and PS2 games like normal, but PS2 and PS1 copies give me the RED SCREEN - it's like the modchip isn't even there!
I'm actually using an oscillator rather than crystal or resonator (couldn't get anything else). Osc are self-powered, which I check out OK - I look at the OSC1 input on the SX28 and read 2.20V - approx 1/2 of the 5 due to the ~50% duty cycle of the clock, so that looks good too.
One other thing I did differently was set the fuse to NOT Code Protect - that way I am able to verify the code I put on the chip repeatedly after it was burned.
I need a final answer - does R16 work on a v7/070 bios or not?
I've already ripped out on install and started over just to be sure, with the same result. This is costing me alot of $$ and I'm no further ahead than when I started.

You should really try the Magic ICE code (0.84f). This is an improved version of the original Magic R16 code.
Thanks for the info I will assume this is the collective's 'Final Answer' In the Magic 3 thread then, is it a v7 with a bios other than 070 that works or was someone just confused?
I will certainly try the ICE .84 thread. But, since I use a PICALL and it doesn't support ISP I have to rip out the M3 install to reprogram and put in ICE - damn!
Fluffy supports ISP I understand, but how do I buy such a kit? Is everyone just breadboarding their own concoctions based on schematic and parts list posted elsewhere, or has a vendor put it all together with a pcb in kit form, like the PICALL?
Still P.O'd, but at least I have something else to try.... and still $100 wasted on a PICALL that won't ISP - that sucks hard!
for old sx chips, you need other fuses!
get the blakat modblak 1.0 code. there you find the hex code for old and new sx chips with the right fuses.
