The Modbo v4.0 is the latest chip from the guys at Modbo.com. The Modbo v4.0 is compatible with v5 to v19 and it is also compatible with the newly released SCPH-7700x & 7900x consoles. Its PCB layout is a perfect “L” shape which makes install a breeze. We believe this chip is a great solution for those looking for a compact and feature packed chip without the high price tag. We also want to explain to customers that there are two producers of the Modbo range of chips, first are the guys at Modbo.com who produced the Modbo 3.0 & Modbo 4.0. Second are the guys over at Modbo2.com who produced the Modbo v2.1 & Modbo 745.
A major difference we found between Modbo 4 and Modbo 745 is the Modbo 4.0 does work from v5 to v19 as advertised, but the Modbo 745 has trouble working in consoles under v9. Another bonus with the Modbo 4.0 is its now running the Matrix Infinity firmware v1.91 and is also possible to upgrade the firmware at a later date without any problems. If that wasn’t enough, they have now managed to get the firmware’s config menu and all its options to work and save. You can now go into the config menu and setup the Modbo 4 the way you want it, this is extremely handy for a lot of reasons. The Modbo 4.0 also uses a clock point, some of our customers have found that chips using a clock point “CX” are generally more stable then the same type of chip not using a clock point.
The Modbo 4.0 is a clone of the original Matrix Infinity range of PS2 mod chips. One of the major improvements Modbo 4 has over other Matrix clones is its better compatibility with DVD 9 and runs dual layer much better then older models. Modbo 4.0 comes on a differently laid out pcb to earlier model Modbo chips, allowing for a slightly neater install. There are a few clones of the Matrix Infinity floating around, Modbo , AppleEx , Matrix Infinity SE and some more. The good thing about these chips is you are getting most of the functions of the original Matrix Infinity at the fraction of the cost. The Modbo 4 also has auto media detection for direct booting and All Region DVD Support.
v5 to v19
Please note that the Aus PAL consoles *need* the "H" point connected. This point is normaly only used on NTSC consoles, but our Aus PAL consoles require this point to function. As the PAL diagrams do not show "H" point, use the USA diagrams for v9 to v16 & the JAP diagrams on v5 & v7 for only the "H" point.
-=( v5 & v7 consoles )=-
A controller must be plugged in for the chip to function. This is only the case on v5 & v7 models, all other versions do not need a controller plugged in to function..
Warning the Diode fix is not a 100% solution for the PSTwo v12 syndrome.
We advise for complete protection of your laser, install the SubZero fix only on V12's.
