your at it again lol nothing can boot without patching the bios or cdvdcontroller aka mechacon.Originally Posted by oldspirit2
il go over it again
point 1 as with the crystal it contain's one main ic that contain's patching information it contains an internal flash eeprom memory space remove this ic the ps2 is bound to work because all section will be severed and lead to dead circuits so yes the ps2 will work because all pcb lines will be severed.
on point 2 this is stupidly ridiculous and show's how much you know how a modchip work's if you only solder power and ground and no controller or bios wire's the ps2 will work as normal it has to becaue no modchip is installed full stop, and if you mean connecting just the scex wire's reset and power and ground it's illegal it's injecting copyright code the scex data sequence it any modchip can be programmed to run on these four wire's early version's of the messiah used this to test chips.
you cant make any bootable modchip without connecting bios or cdvdcontroller wire's it aint going to happen.
the bios need's to be manipulated to boot anything self boot and under certain law's it's allowable to do this aslong as you dont use copyrighted code and to boot homebrew copyrighted code is not needed.
under point 2 your saying even connecting a modchip in any form to the bios is illegal manipulation is allowed without using copyright code just killing a cd check and introducing your own boot sequence is allowed.
il tell you the reason no modchip will work while blank is because of how a pcb works let's call it a parasite that when programmed allow's pathways to be open to allow the ps2 to comunicate with itself when blank these pathway's are in place but but cannot route the pathways hence a blank screen.
im damn sure some other electronic guru's can give there 2 pence on why all his statement's go against how an addon device work's.
all the statments you made go against how a the mod circuits work at present so will never work without huge redesign of current modchip's and alot more wire's to allow a program that allows normal operation in situe but without any code in regaurd's to booting anything just as a parasite with no function with an external programmer.
