Magic 3.1

Hi...I just bought a premodded ps2 with the magic 3.1 mod chip installed. I need to be pointed to a tutorial on how to change the different modes using the reset switch. I have backed up a few originals to play and I can get the rips (cd-r) to work and I have a few (dvd-r) copies that work also, but it takes forever not knowing the different modes of this chip. So I just boot by luck...lol. It would be greatly appriciated. Also is their any special settings on the cdrwin I need to set up to burn bin/cue files?

Your help will be greatly appriciated

Magic 3, 3.1


NOTE: This is with the disk assumed in the tray and the tray closed:

Playstation 2 Games

Power up normally from STANDBY with RESET button. A single tap is required.

Playstation 1 games & DVD Movies

Power up from STANDBY with RESET button held until the blue EJECT light comes on; then release RESET and the disk will boot.

NOTE: Turn off the PS2 (to standby) before changing Mode (PS1/PS2/DVD)

NOTE: To turn off the modchip....... Hold reset for 3-5 seconds.

NEO 2.2


Normal Boot Method (PS2 Backups)

That standard method for PS2 backups using AR2/GS2
Insert the AR2/GS2 CD1
Power off the PS2 for 5 seconds
Turn on the machine - will boot to a menu
Select START GAME
Select WITHOUT CODES
Press Eject
Swap AR2/GS2 disc with your PS2 backup
Press eject to close tray
Press X AS SOON as the tray closes
The game will now load

Alternative Boot Method (PS2 Backups & AR2/GS2 v1.1)

NOTE: This alternative method has had greater success with v1.1 AR2/GS2

Insert the AR2/GS2 CD1
Power off the PS2 for 5 seconds
Turn on the machine - will boot to a menu
Select START GAME
Select WITHOUT CODES
Screen will say Insert Disc - Press X
Press Eject
Swap AR2/GS2 disc with your PS2 backup
Press X - Wait for it to say Loading and background animation stops
Press eject to close tray
The game will now load

EA Boot Method (PS2 Backups)

NOTE: This is the method for PS2 backups that won't boot with normal method.

Insert the AR2/GS2 CD1
Power off the PS2 for 5 seconds
Press and hold the reset button - machine will boot
Menu screen will appear
Select START GAME (Still holding Reset)
Select WITHOUT CODES (Still holding reset)
Let go of reset - tray will eject and stay open for 4 seconds
The disc will still be spinning when using AR2/GS2 v1.4 & above
Swap AR2/GS2 disc with your PS2 backup
Do not press eject - the tray will close automatically
Press X AS SOON as the tray closes
For AR2/GS2 v1.4 & above you need to select O + R1 instead of X
The game will now load

You also have the option to patch your EA game.

EA Boot Method 2 (PS2 Backups)

NOTE: This is the alternative EA Method that seems to work for some people.

Press and hold the reset button - machine will boot
Menu screen will appear
Let go of reset - tray will eject and stay open for 4 seconds
The disc will still be spinning when using AR2/GS2 v1.4 & above
Leave the AR2/GS2 disc in and let the tray close
Select START GAME
Select WITHOUT CODES
Press Eject
Swap AR2/GS2 disc with your PS2 backup
Press Eject - Game will now load
Press X
If you have v1.4 & above you may need to press O + R1 instead of X
The game will now load

DVD Rip Boot Method (PS2 DVD Rips)

NOTE: Another alternative method for troublesome discs.

Insert the AR2/GS2 CD1
Power off the PS2 for 5 seconds
Press and hold the reset button - machine will boot
Menu screen will appear
Let go of reset - tray will eject and stay open for 4 seconds
The disc will still be spinning when using AR2/GS2 v1.4 & above
Swap AR2/GS2 disc with your DVD Rip backup
Select START GAME
Select WITHOUT CODES
Press eject till tray comes out halfway then press eject again
Press X AS SOON as the tray closes
For AR2/GS2 v1.4 & above you need to select O + R1 instead of X
The game will now load

Ready to Rumble 2 Boot Method (Alternative Method)

NOTE: Some people had trouble with Ready to Rumble 2 and this seemed to fix it.

Use the normal EA Boot Method to boot the game
As soon as the game starts to check the Memory Card Press EJECT
Wait a couple of seconds until the main R2R screen appears
Close the tray and the game should now work ok

Booting Playstation 1 backups & Playstation 2 originals

Wouldn't it be great if all backups booted like this !

Power off the PS2 for 5 seconds
Boot as normal - no special method

How to boot Playstation 1 originals

NOTE: This technique simply deactivates the chip

Insert your PSX original
Power off the PS2 for 5 seconds
Press reset for 1 second (Until blue light comes on) then let go
Game will now boot as normal - the chip is deactivated

How to boot PSX imports

Insert your PSX original
Power off the PS2 for 5 seconds
Turn on the machine
Press eject just before the PSX LOGO SCREEN
Swap with your PSX import backup
Press eject to close the tray
The game will now load

How to boot DVD-R (only) with AR2/GS2 V2x

Thanks to Nightstalker for this method!

Insert AR2/GS2
Power down console, wait 5 sec, and restart console by pressing and holding reset. (Dont let go)
After GS2 completely loads, swap with original dvd game.(high TOC)
Wait about 15 sec and select Gameshark codes (or ar2 codes) and turn on or off any code on any game.
Press start, select with codes and press x to load game.
You will see a black screen saying "updating codes please wait" at this time release the reset button, tray will eject, swap with backup, tray closes and game loads.

lol...I noticed that....but don't bust his bubble. Hey where is that Mod Boot section? Is it a Sticky? I can't find it.

Ohhh, another question do you boot cdr/dvd-r backups the same way? I think I am having a problem with my Enter the MAtrix dvd-r, I cant get it too boot. Are they a list of games that will not work on Magic 3.1 somewhere? I have booted Enter the Matrix before.... and I have checked for scratches I keep my back ups in great shape. Also anyone can help me on the settings?
