The Modbo v4.0 is the latest chip from the guys at Modbo.com. The Modbo v4.0 is compatible with v5 to v16 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 v16 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. The Modbo 4 also comes with a Diode fix for the PSTwo Slimline v12.

Already comes with the E3 ODE complete version. Great for replacing your damaged E3 ODE QSB from a bad installation!
The Trident MX tool will unlock Slim Lite-on DVD drives (DG-16D4S) that come with a Macronix internal SPI Flash. Until recently locked drives were only found in the firmware’s 0225, 0401 and 1071, but the latest dashboard update (2.0.13599) has locked the 9504 drives with 0272 firmware. The Trident MX is a MUST have in your arsenal of weapons.
Combined with the POWER of Maximus Lizard (Gecko 1.16 and above) and in a few days supported by Jungleflasher, this is the perfect tool to do the job professionally and without hassle.
Forget about tricking/spoofing the drive with unsafe methods of picking and choosing different resistors; We have a 0 to 100 ohm trimmer installed. There is no need to run a complex application to do the Macronix Unlock - Maximus Lizard does the magic for you.
The Trident MX is a tool designed for pro-modders but will be loved be even by the newest Modder!!
Note: This tool works only with Macronix SPI Flash. (For Winbond we are still developing a proper and safe solution to be announced at another time.)
