Modbo

Hi,

Does anybody know about MODBO modchip? I think it's the latestest mod chip, but I'm not sure how good it is. I'm trying to decide between MODBO and Matrix Infinity for my 15000 Japanese PS2. If anybody has any information about the quality of the chip and how it compares with MI, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Thanks

lol, thing is they actualy do work with the flash built in the chip. If you get the infinity update from there site it wont work because of the different type chips used and the layout of the ic chips. some people will know this. All that needs to be done is for modbo to edit the code. But i would use matrix its very good.

Yes, and Hull is a good installer. If they Rattled his cage then i am sure it would do the same to me and alot of other installers. Everyone should take his advise and stay clear. I know i am.

Not too sure I like the way you said that lol.

Ok I've played with the modbo a bit more since my last post (I had to cos the manufacturer is no help ) & I'll say yes it does actually work if you amend the installation diagram (which I'm sure everybody does automatically!). It's got the 1.33 bios but works fine in a v12. Like I say, you have to amend the diagram for it to work on a pal machine but I'm not gonna tell you how precisely.

Once you flash it, you have a useless chip so don't bother! Its a budget end cheap chip which in my opinion is overpriced.

Its unfair to compare it with the Infinity, Crystal etc etc but holds its own when compared to the Mars & other cheap chinese mods. If you're considering the Matrix Infinity then go with that because the Modbo will dissapoint. If however you're a tite/skint southern shandy drinkin poofter........... the modbo will probably work just fine.

Bugger my secret is out I've not tested on all versions so can't say for sure but it looks like you need the H wire for versions 9-12 but not 3-7. When you do get it working DO NOT flash it!
