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.

The 360 LiteKey by Maximus is an advanced version of the Lite-On rebuild board, this little device serves as not only a rebuild PCB for the Lite-On 83850 V2 & 93450 V3, but it also acts as a Vampire spear as well, so all you need to do with the 360 LiteKey is install it and use the Xtractor Pro, or the 360 power unit from the USB Xtractor to then do a full firmware dump of your drive.
But that’s not the only function of this neat little invention, as some of you may know, when using the LT firmware on the Lite-On 83850 V2 & 93450 V3 drives, before you accept any updates for the 360 console you should really flash the firmware on your drive back to its original state before doing the update, this is where the Maximus 360 LiteKey really shines, because after installation there is no need to open the drive again to be able to do this, the 360 LiteKey can auto switch between operational mode or firmware extraction mode, where if you were using something like the standard Lite-On rebuild board, to flash the drive back to its original state you would need to open the drive and use the Vampire to make the full dump needed to finalize the process, with Maximus 360 LiteKey that’s a thing of the past, after the first install there is no need to ever open the drive again.
