Question Version 4 with GAP on bios what is this??!

sponsored links

The Messiah works in every PAL PS2 and only Version 4 on NTSC machines with a GAP. In other words if your in Europe this chip will work on every console, if your in the USA this chip will only work on Version 4 PS2 consoles with a GAP on the Bios chip.

Version 4 PS2 with a GAP on the Bios Chip???? What??

I have a V4 1a do i need to do something special or am i set???

Can i get this chip on my PS2 v4 1a?

I have not clue whats a PS2 w/ GAP on the bios chip

the gap bios is a version of the bios chip that has a gap in the middle of either side instead of the chip legs running continuously. the only way to really tell if you have one is to look at your ps2 mobo

Can't you also tell by the sticker on the bottom? If the "do not open-electric shock" is a sticker, I think it is a gap bios, is a stamp in the plastic, then it's not. Maybe someone else can verify or deny that, I'm not totally sure. If it is, get the PAL Messiah! It is the best chip out there. Don't forget, you will need the NTSC color fix chip to play PS1 games.

As long as you have the 030 bios chip gap or no-gap the messiah will work with your PS2. The only way to find this out is to opener up and take a look...Being a date code of 1A your chances are pretty good that it will have the 030 bios in it.
