PS2 mod to play ROMs and backups
October 2, 2011Posted by on
A friend of mine gave me a Play Station 2 (SCPH-50004 – V9) and as I have only few games I decided to mod it so I can play ROMs and game backups. The modchips for PS2 are now very cheap (I got one for 10€) but put it in place is quite tedious as the solder points are extremely small.
Here you have some photos of the process.
The modchip is a Modbo 735, it was labeled as a Matrix Infinity 1.99 a more famous and expensive chip.
This is the console before and after the modification, as you can see the final result is quite professional.
I had to reopen the console to repair some solder points but at the end I got it working perfectly, now I can play to my PS1 and PS2 backups.
