Re: [DEV] - Flash Boot Rom PS1

Thanks for Your words. PCB design above (for TSOP) has the dual BIOS capability, but I tried that only once a year ago with wrong BIOS writed. I wanted to use a 1001 as device 2 (PS1 BIOS ROM) and no$cash BIOS as device 0 (expantion ROM). They won't work cause back then no$cash BIOS has no capabilit...

Re: 240v on SCPH-1000 Power supply?

As cybdyn said it's better to upgrade diods too. Just made my 110v to work with 220v. For now I replaced 5 diods and 3 caps. I'll attach some pics for that. It works well and it's free of noise or heat. Have to test it more, wanted to replace Q001 (2sc4054) and Q002 (2sc1714) to become 2sc4231 and 2...

Re: NO$CASH Kernel Clone - New Expansion ROM Version

... have to reflash it with kHn's XFlash mod with Unirom or something else thats 128K. SST29EE010 is not siutable for no$cash BIOS clone cause it has no such amount of memory space that BIOS clone needed. 29EE010 is 128kByte EEPROM but you need xxxx020 (256kByte) or xxxx040 (512kByte) EEPROM. Also ...

Re: Buy a DTL-H1102 Converter board

Seems like it's the same connector that external PCMCIA PS2 HDD has. I might be wrong, but who knows. I don't have PS1 like yours but I do have that HDD. Thoght these connectors looks the same. https://m.ebay.com/itm/Sony-DTL-H20400-PlayStation-2-Development-Tool-Hard-Disk-Drive-AC-Adapter/263089473...

Re: NOCASH PSX-BIOS SWAP

Hello. Finaly I were able to swap BIOS too. It works fine on 9000 and 102, but one thing I need to know about PSX-BOO bios - the modchip feature. ### Nocash BIOS "Modchip" Feature (optional) SPU.Pin42 "data" -------|>|------ CPU.Pin149 (A20) SPU.Pin5 "sync" ---------------- IC723.Pin17 ### It works ...

This might be a picture of the very last PSone. I've never seen that -82 motherboard subrevision either. The ROM is probably the missing 4.5a.

So, the 1-679-335-82 is the very last MOBO? I do have one, SCPH-103J. Just curios if there are any others.
