PS2 NEO 2.2 PRO Mod Chip Booting Instructions

PSX backups and PS2 Originals boot normally.
1.Insert the PlayStation CDR copy into you PS2 and boot as normal. The NEO2 ModChip will automatically detect the media and game type.

Note: PS 2 consoles with v4 boards may NOT be able to boot PSX backups using the above method. If you have a v4 board, use the following method: Once you reach the startup screen ("Please Insert A Playstation CD"), press the RESET button once. You should now be able to boot PSX backups.

Booting Procedure for Playstation originals:

1. Power on the PS2 and eject the disc tray.
2. Insert the original PlayStation game into the disc tray.
3. Hold the Eject button down for 2 seconds

Booting Procedure for PS 2 backups: In order to boot PS2 Backup games you need a GameShark2. When installed in a version 1, 2 or 3 PlayStation2 the NEO2 Mod Chip is only compatible with GameShark2 version 1.3.

When installed in a version 4 PlayStation2, the NEO2 ModChip is only compatible with the GameShark2 version 1.4.
