Topic: PS2 Bios

Hi all.

I have collected some bioses (dumped with ps2idetn) from PlayStation 2 that missed in redump database.
So I have SCPH-39008 with dvd rom 2.16R, SCPH-50002 with dvd rom 3.00A, SCPH-79010, SCPH-90008 (v2.30) and DESR-5700 bootrom and dvdrom dumps.
Im collecting info about ps2 so if redump guys have ps2ident reports i can exchange it for my dumps.

Best regards,
AKuHAK

Hi,

we don't have any PS2Ident reports, because most dumps were made before that tool existed. I do corresponded with SP193 every now and then to synchronize our databases and track down any corrupt dumps.

If those dumps that you have originate from your own, unmodified consoles, then we can add them. Otherwise we have no way to verify that the dumps are really correct. Modchips are known to corrupt the BIOS.
SCPH-39008 is not in the PS2Ident database yet. If this is your console, then please dump it with modchip disabled and send info/dumps to SP193.
SCPH-50002 also not in PS2Ident database, but if it doesn't match one of the versions in our datfile, it's probably corrupt. 3.00A DVD ROM also sounds fishy, because 3.00A = Asian and SCPH-50002 = European.
SCPH-79010 BIOS is probably corrupt (the one in the PS2Ident DB has comment "Console is modded").
SCPH-90008 BIOS should match "ps2-0230e-20080220", but the one in PS2Ident DB doesn't, so probably also corrupted.
DESR-5700 also isn't listed in the PS2Ident DB. If you have this model, then please submit your info/dumps to SP193.

Ah ok all these dumps sent to sp193 about week ago, so you can contact him.
In fact DESR-5700 was in his collection for about year BTW.
As for SCPH-50002 - yes, it belong to European region, but it has different DVD rom: Australian version. All Fat xxx02 has different DVD rom while the same BOOT rom as xxx03 and xxx04.
