How to Install a Mayumi v4 Modchip in a Playstation 1

hey what’s up guys this is the wheelman 282 here again today we’re going to take a look at how to install a mod chip inside your PlayStation 1 so basically what this means is the ma chip is going to allow you to play your burn games on your ps1 it also vector your console region free so you can play your original imports if you want to and you can also play burned imports if you want to download those and burn those the months yet we’re going to be installing today is called the the Mayumi version 4 this is probably one of the most up-to-date and reliable launch apps for the ps1 and I will include a link in the description where you can buy this one mA chips from 0 to K 11 obscure gamers calm so as I’m going through this video I want to give you going to give you a disclaimer now that everything in the video you should follow with a grain of salt and the reason I say that is because there are so many variations of the ps1 and so many variations of mod chips that it’s it’s kind of cumbersome to include all those variations in a single video and it not take you know forever so basically what that means is depending on what version ps1 you have and what version or what if you have programmed will determine where you solder the wires on the motherboard to get your chip installed it’s kind of a mess so again take take everything you see here with a grain of salt it’s probably going to be different for your situation unless you’re installing this this same coated chip in the same version PlayStation probably gonna be different for you so on that note there are several versions of PlayStation there’s a 1000 all the way up to the 9 thousand versions and then there’s the 101 which is the small ps1 slim um they can all be ma chipped just depending on you know what version you have versus what kiff you have the PERT determines where your going to solder those wires on there so today we’re installing it in a 9001 ps1 so you don’t know what version you have take your ps1 and just flip it over and it should be here on the label and you can see right here it says SC th9001 so basically this is this is a US NTSC 9000 model ps1 the chip we’re going to be installing is the Mayumi version 4 like I said probably this is the most the most reliable the most compatible watches that you can get as of today the downfall of this particular chip is that you can’t install it in the version 1110 beaten up mud shipped you just have to get a with a different program flash to it again 0 to K 11 sells sells all these versions markets they don’t worry about that one important note to consider when you’re getting a matchup is whether it supports stealth capabilities or not so basically what that means is some of the later release games for ps1 actually have a built in software that can detect chip installed in your system and if it does you know it deploys an anti-piracy measure where it won’t see played that game so all the newest my chips were the newest versions of the code class – the chip will include a capability called stealth and basically what that means is after a short time of the chip booting the game up or the ps1 booting game up the chip will turn itself off to avoid being detected by that game and they let you play the game that maybe version 4 supports this I think some other chips support as well I’m not a can’t remember exactly right off the top of my head but the basic thing to take away here is if you have a version if you hit you for your ps1 version is 5500 up to 1000 and the 101 model try to get a chip that chip that has air support stealth technology or whatever you want to call it those consoles support that and you’re just better off getting it that supports still the 1000 model is not compatible with a chip that support still in a general sense if your tip does support stealth you can install it in a 1,000 model but the stealth function doesn’t work and you there’s a little bit different method to excel on the chip so like I said this is kind of this is kind of cumbersome there’s a lot of things to take in a lot of things to consider if you have any questions you just leave a comment down in the in the comments section I’ll try my best to answer it there’s also a lot of people on the autism and secure gamers that can answer that for you as

well if you’re a member there so don’t be afraid to ask I’ll definitely help you out in the way I can so just a little bit about this matchup so ps1 my chips are they aren’t technically manufactured per se it’s actually a 8-bit microcontroller and that’s just flashed with a with a program so this is a pic 12 C 508 and this is nothing more than just a simple 8-bit microcontroller that someone has flashed with a program so it will act as we march up for your ps1 you can buy these chips from like Mouser or digi-key and you can actually flash them yourself if you have a burner and a PC so it’s technically possible to make your own ps1 mock-ups very easily you just have to you know buy the parts I personally have a burner at all to do that so you know I have to buy my mod ships as of right now chips are pretty inexpensive generally they range between 5 and 10 dollars so you know definitely affordable so it’s really the best option for playing backups on your ps1 so anyway I’m done rambling now I wanted to fill you guys in on the information and the caveats of choosing a much versus your Playstation model like I said there’s a lot of information gets cumbersome so if you have a question ask me I’ll do my best to answer it you can also add something else’s own or obscure gamers calm and those people also try to help you out too anyway I’m done I’m gonna go ahead and tear the ps1 down to the motherboard and I’ll show you guys how you know so much up so let’s quickly go over the tools in the park you need to be able to pull this off so first off of course you’re going to need your PlayStation I want you to bear in mind that the tutorial you’re going to watch is again just guidelines because it’s probably gonna be different for you especially if you happen to have a 1000 model don’t rely on this tutorial too much I mean you could watch it in kind of familiarize yourself with the process but the 1000 model PlayStation it’s got a different installation method even it requires a switch so again don’t rely on this video too heavily for that it’s good for some just some general guidelines but the 1000 models little bit different I can do a video in the 1000 or if you want me to just let me know in the comments I don’t have $1,000 in my possession right now so I have to acquire that somehow but I can definitely do that if you want me to so first off you can need your salting iron and some solder flux is kind of optional if you don’t you probably don’t need flux for something this delicate but and you might need it ten depends on on your skill level of soldering for a song ps1 mot sets you typically don’t make it that much next you’re going to need some wire strippers and some wire snips you guys need some some wire to install your ma chip to the board so this is 30 gauge wire if you don’t have pretty guys wire you can you can grab some out of a scrap Ethernet cable I think that’s about 28 gauge wire and that will work with your phone you’re going to need a way to secure your ma up to the motherboard so I like to use a double sticky tape or a double sided tape it’s just easier and cleaner if you don’t want to use that you you can certainly use a hot glue gun up I’ve done it myself and it works on it’s a little bit more cumbersome sometimes a little bit more messy but and you know no big deal the just double-sided take a little bit easier lianna’s and depending on your playstation model you may or may not need electrical tape on some models of the PlayStation the area in which you install your chip is very close the middle shielding inside it doesn’t touch it but it’s pretty close so just as a precaution on those models and I can’t remember where they are top of my head but on those models I just like to put some electrical tape on the metal shielding in that area just as an extra layer of protection against shorts begin electrical tape is it is optional depending on your complexion level and of course last but not least you’re going to need your watch up so just grab that and yeah that’s a pretty basic installation guys not a lot of tools required but we’re all astana ketchup is not very difficult in a 15 the ps1 I wouldn’t say it’s the easiest however it’s pretty low difficulty so let’s go ahead and take the motherboard out and we’ll go ahead and it’s on a chip so here is our motherboard taken out of the case as you can see this motherboard is pretty small that’s because this is a 9000 model PlayStation and this is just the motherboard that has if you’re installing your chip in an older model you can fix it 500 7000 whatever your mother works probably going to be bigger

some other boards also have shielding soldered on to or on top of the the motherboard so depending on what model you have you might have to remove that shielding first just kind of depends but at any rate what we’re going to be focusing on is a specific area on the motherboard and it’s usually going to be a Chet it looks like this and here’s a little bit closer view of it so it’s a little bit hard to see but typically when you’re putting installing a mock-up in a ps1 you’re looking for a chip that looks like this if you look at the installation diagrams on the link in the description you won’t really have to worry about finding that because it’s in the picture but this is this kind of chip is typically what you’re looking for on your motherboard that’s the general area where you’ll be installing that chip so the guide I want to use looks like this this is just kind of your your general guide it gives you some easiest points of salt or – if you’ve never installed a ps1 much it before I would recommend going with this guy’s gives you a few solder points that are that are pretty large and easy to solder to you however I am going to make a couple of variations the number one and the number for solar point are kind of far away from the general area I just pointed out to you so I’m going to solder the wire those two wires to alternate points on the motherboard to shorten those wires and just make the install look a little bit better and the only reason I’m doing that is because it’s just my personal preference and honestly it just uses less wire the other points you see in the diagram will pretty much remain the same and overall this is going to be a pretty pretty easy installation there are some small assault points of salt or two especially if you’re soldering it into the slim piece one is some of those other points a little bit smaller than the bigger ps1 models but overall this isn’t too difficult so anyway I’m going to go ahead and start prepping the board what I like to do since this is a pretty small area and we’re going to be soldering some wires around this chip and it’s it can get a little bit cumbersome if you try to sell the chip first so what I can do is for us for a few of these points I’ll take the wire and I’ll solder to the point first or wherever it goes and then I’ll you know once those wires are coming off the board then I’ll install the chip and then run those wires to the chip it’s it’s just a little bit easier to you know depending on where those points are located and I’m not really that for every point it’s just just a select few because they’re a little bit hard to reach once the chip is attached to the board so let’s quickly talk about chip placement for the most part most of the points that you’re going to be soldering to are in this general area here so what I tend to do is I’ll take my chip my MA chip and I’ll just attach it to the top of this of this integrated circuit right here you don’t have to do that you can basically place it anywhere you want if there you can put it on top of this chip or this chip or anywhere really doesn’t matter a whole lot but in this video I’m going to be placing it on top of this ship since this is kind of in the general area where we’re going to be solving in addition to that I want to go ahead and give you guys a pro tip I see a lot of people online that when they install their chip they’ll just use you know a whole craps on a wire honestly it’s not necessary and it not only does it make your your job look worse it can sometimes call signal degradation between the chip and the motherboard so you know you don’t need like like a six-inch piece of wire to run you know from point A to point B which is like you know maybe two or three inches it’s just not necessary I’m not trying to call them inexperienced or you know trying to put them down it’s just that if you don’t you just don’t use a whole lot of wire that’s just not necessary your work will just be come out cleaner and it will more than likely work better as well at the same time and that’s kind of what I want to show you in this video is just how to do it properly and correct the first time so you don’t have to you know kind of wing the whole the whole shebang so anyway I’m going to zoom back in here on this chip here and I’m just going to go ahead and strip my wires and just kind of put them in place where I need them and then we’ll install the chip okay so I’m almost ready to start prepping the chip I actually forgot to go over one more thing so are much here’s our mod chip right here it’s just this little tiny thing here so if you remember back when we looked at the at the diagram you’ll see you would see all those numbers right bridge for each other point well that those numbers correspond to the the points on this module so if you don’t already know on on a dip package you start here with the little circle up in the top right hand corner and that they indicate that just ten here that’s ten

number one and then you work your way down to pin number four so it’s one two three four you go across and then this pin five six seven eight so it goes kind of in a in a u-shape like that so pins Oh one two three four five six seven eight those correspond to the number you saw in the installation picture so you know pin number one we go to red number one over you know wherever it goes to goes to number or to point the diagram etc you know so it’s pretty simple concept understand so anyway like I said we need to prep the the board here so in this area here the pin numbers that we’re going to be prepping our numbers 2 3 4 & 7 those are the 4 points in this area that we just need to solve it as wires to really quick so looking at the diagram we see that pin number 2 is this first leg here on the tip it’s actually labeled a pin number 14 on the chip I don’t really like soldering to the legs because it’s just the legs are just really small if I can help it I want to solder to the via that connect to that leg so you can see this little tiny via right here beside the number 14 if you follow that trace you know that just one millimeter trace it goes to this first leg so I’m just going to solder the the wire to that little via here and that’s number two number four is actually this this other pin this first counter right here on the on these two this integrated circuit and again I’m the twin solder to the VSO that is this is the a right here we’re out but underneath the 13 so let’s go solder wire there for number number four number seven is this this big solder pad right here pretty simple too far to you know not most explanation needed and number three pin number three actually get soldered to this side here of this of this this middle resistor so it’s going to be the the inside of that over that resistor there now again if you don’t if you don’t feel comfortable soldering pin number four to this via here you can certainly use the original good diagram and solder pin number four to where it’s shown in the diagram there is nothing wrong with that it will work perfectly fine it’s just that that pin is all the way on the all the way across the board and it just uses a lot of wire so I just I just want mine to look a little bit neater so that’s why I’m flowering to this via you don’t have to do that that is totally up to you so in order to prep these these two videos to salt or two I want to take a razor blade again if you you don’t necessarily need to do this and this is my personal preference I’m just gonna take a razor blade and I’m going to lightly scrape the two V’s to make to get the mask off of them if there is any just so I can solder to that little area [Applause] so as you can see I have go ahead and prep the other board here so just a quick recap these are points two three four and seven and those correspond again to the depends on our mock-up here so the next step is we need to go ahead and prepare our module so since this is a dip package it doesn’t exactly fit well on the motherboard now you it is possible to get a get a mod chip that is a a soft or a small outline package and it’s actually it says on a little tiny circuit board and it’s just it’s got a smaller footprint really this are like a little bit more convenient but you know using dip packages like this is you know it works just fine so basically what we want to do is set you know since we can’t really solver to these legs efficiently what we like to do is take these legs and bend them out straight or a parallel with the actual much of itself and we’re going to cut off the little tiny pin parts and we’re going to salt or just to the the big flat parts

here on the chip so what I like to do I’m just like I’d like to take some needle nose pliers and I’ll just grab those those pins like that and I’ll just gently I’ll just kind of Bend that’s bend the pins kind of out like that and just kind of bring them out parallel with the chip okay and so once we have those those pins out parallel coupled like that next I want to take my ticks and my snips I can just cut off the those sharp edges here are the sharp points because we won’t be needing those alright so once you have your chip all done it’s going to look like something like that again we’re just solder into those big points and so as you can see the chip is going to sit about like that a little bit crooked but you can get the idea and we’re just going to solve it as wires to the points on the chip so first we need to secure the chip to the motherboard itself again I’m using double sticky tape just because it’s a little bit easier you want to use hot glue you certainly can alright so as you can see I have just put a little bit of sticky tape on the bottom of the chip and it’s going to flip it a flip sky over and we’re going to attach it it looks pretty good for me so it’s just you know it’s just in symmetrical in the middle side it’s like I had my work looked clean so I’m just going to push on that a few good times so that the chip does not come off and we’re done it’s not going anywhere so what I’m going to do now is I’m going to go ahead and attach these wires to the Matsu so that again this is two three four and seven I’m going to solve those to the mod ship and get those done and then we’re then after we do that we’re going to go back and do one five six and eight just because it’s a little bit easier to do it like this this method that I’m using so these some of these wires are a little bit too long that’s fine you if you want to use these long wires this long that’s perfectly fine I’m going to trim these down a little bit just to make it look nicer so again I’m going to take my snips and my wire strippers here and I’m just going to UM basically just sizing these wires down to fit so for example you know this this wire here that I’m grabbing this is 10 2 and pin 2 is right here on the ship it’s the wire doesn’t necessarily need to be that long and this needs to be about that long there and I’ll just cut off the excess so I’m going to go ahead do that for these four wires here and then we’ll continue all right as you can see we’re about halfway done with the installation at this point so again we’ve got two three four and seven installed on the chip here so we need to do one five six and eight so again looking at the diagram here you can see that number one is over here beside the serial port you can see that number eight is down here below the ribbon cable spot on whether these points down here and then five and six are below this this big processor chip right here so we’re going to go ahead install the pin number one now so again the pin number one if I remember correctly has power on this on the all these microcontrollers so again when I run pin number one over here to this point here and in order to make it look a little bit more professional what I like to do is I will take the wire and run it underneath the legs of this chip here either either these legs or these these legs here doesn’t matter use your preference it’s just it just think of it as kind of like wire management just make sure it’s not look nicer [Applause]

all right so there’s our pin one done next we’re going to move back over here to the the Mon chip itself and we’re going to go ahead and solve around pin eight here and again that is going to go down here below the ribbon cable socket so it’s going to come down here and it’s going to solder to this middle solder joint right here okay so we just finished it with ten eight so now we have all we have left is pins five and six so that’s a that’s these two pins right here so the two summer points for that are actually right below this large processor here and that the so pin 6 is on this little tiny resistor here on this decide facing the big processor chip and it’s um this left hands resistor right here the other point five is actually on this solder point right here it’s just first one in this row of three is this this top one right here see right there so when I’m installing a mod chip and a ps1 what I like to do is instead of running the wire down across the modem or let this to go to at the point 4 4 pin Simon 6 in particular this is what I like to do I will take take these two wires and run them down here to this large processor and I’ll do the same thing we did for pin 1 I’ll basically just run the wires the two wires underneath this row of pins and so pin 6 will come out right here and attach or a folder to that point their pin 5 will actually continue around here go under these row pins and then a solder here on this point so again where you can do it however you want you don’t have to do that that’s totally up to you I just like to go for neatness and again just keep in mind depending on your version of ps1 you may or may not have to do this some some versions of the ps1 they don’t even install on the top side where the processors are so again you kind of have to play it by ear because you know I can’t include every single version installation in this video but you kind of get the idea alright guys so there we go we were all finished I went ahead and did points five and six off camera to see if truck speed this up a little bit but as you can see points five and six go down through these these two rows of pins and then just come out their respective places so we’re going to sound a bunch of guys all the pins are hooked up yet we’re all set so let’s go ahead an put the motherboard back in the case and we’ll test out of burn game I want to make one final note about the about the 9000 model here pens one and eight this is just my personal preference but I always like to to use the alternate points for pens one and eight which is which are both brought up here beside the chip not only because it uses less wire but it’ll make sure an installation look cleaner so you can just run pen one two like right there beside it and ten eight right there beside it you don’t have to run these extra wires down here to get those those points again it just makes your work look professional and neat the only wire that you do have to run down our number five and six again that is just my personal preference you can do any way you want it doesn’t matter I just like my people my work to look neat and professional so yeah I just I always like to just do it all in this area if I can’t the reason I did it this way in the video is to kind of give you an idea of what to expect when you install your mind ship again everything on here was done by the diagram except for pin number four which is like all the way across some of the board so that uses like six or seven inches of wire it’s crazy so that’s why I thought of pin four right here just to just because I hate having to solder that one wire but you know otherwise I just wanted to show you guys what it’s kind of what it’s like and again you can do it any way you want this is just how I do it so don’t feel like you have to you know do what I’m doing here in the video again your personal preference I’ve got the case partially put that together

as you can see if I’ll still get the motherboard in there so real quickly I want to show you what I’m talking about with electrical tape that’s optional so as you can see we chip installed right there and I’ve just got a little piece of black like electrical tape right there on top and I’ve just stuck it to the shielding just in case the chip ever comes unattached from the motherboard and it may be it bounces around you know for whatever reason it won’t come in contact with the shielding on top so this is that’s a pretty decent clearance I’ve seen other motherboards or other models that have a little bit less apparent than that so I I just like to use electrical tape as it’s just a second line of defense on that but yet not necessarily necessary it’s just something you can do if you want to okay so I just finished up cleaning up the case I watched everything so it’s all clean now also clean the disk drive inside I’ve got all the dust out breeze the the transmission everything grease the rails and as you can see we’re demoing some bloody war too and it is working great so I want to wrap up by saying some words about burning your just your your games and specifically about buying CDs so the PlayStation is one of those systems that really does not like to read cheap media like Memorex kind of like the the Gamecube and maybe the Saturn you when you when you buy CDs you really need to make sure you get you quality ones so I’m going to recommend two here this is what I use I’m actually out of this this brand here these are brother these are specifically verbatim data life plus a zero CDs these are very high-quality CDs and they work great for burning games you typically can’t get these in stores or not anymore at least you usually have to go on Amazon to get these those are highly recommended I have used those with good success I also recommend getting either I guess you print out this tire using slash JVC you can also get these on Amazon this is actually a a bulk order of maybe I think 100 CDs and when one pack and it was like 11 bucks so these are also very good very good quality CDs I have used those that’s what I’m using right now in this PlayStation so yeah one thing to remember when you’re burning games is always start with with good quality media if you if you burn to a really cheap CD and you’re having issues with your system reading those games it could you actually don’t know what the issue is it could be the CD that’s giving you problems or it could be the system itself so like I said I recommend buying good CDs burning those first and then when you run that if you were still having problems you can kind of rule out the possibility of that CD not working because more than likely it does and you can you can possibly say you know if the system that needs some attention so basically us we’re all done with the PlayStation I just wanted to say a few words about that so in the meantime stay tuned for more videos coming up I appreciate you guys watching the video appreciate you guys’s crowding and enemy time take care
