These are original install guides for PyroESP’s PlayStation controller reset mod created when testing the reset mod in all revisions of PlayStation. The mod allows In-Game-Reset functionality for PSIO and X-Station users, or anyone who just wants to rage quit a game using their controller.
SCPH-100X PU-8, SCPH-550X PU-18, SCPH-700X PU-20, SCPH-750X PU-22 and SCPH-900X PU-23 are covered. PU-7 and PU-16 coming at some point. SCPH-10X PM-41 PSOne will be included soon.
PlayStation Controller Port Pinout Connections
The controller port is the same for all PlayStation revisions. CN102 is not present on PSOne consoles.
SCPH-100X PU-8 PlayStation In-Game-Reset
Straight forward bottom mount install. Wire run for RST is longer than desired and will cross over wiring for PSIO & X-Station installs. Use RST (alt) if this is a concern. Chip placement has no risk of obstruction, shorting or wire crushing.
SCPH-550X PU-18 PlayStation In-Game-Reset
Straight forward bottom mount install with short wire runs. Chip placement has no risk of obstruction, shorting or wire crushing.
SCPH-700X PU-20 PlayStation In-Game-Reset
This revision has a large RF shield covering the top of the mainboard. It does not need to be removed to install the mod, but it does limit where the chip can be placed. The below diagram presents two options for chip placement. Possibly the only two feasible locations for the chip.
SCPH-750X PU-22 PlayStation In-Game-Reset
This revision has a large RF shield covering the top of the mainboard which severely limits where the chip can be placed. Stick the chip to the bottom of the board and rout the wires through the hole. This placement has been chosen because there is no risk of shorting or crushing wires and the wire runs are short and direct. Placing the chip any further towards the right may result in obstruction and possibly shorting. Keep the wires for RST, 3.5V and GND straight and routed on the inner side of the pins.
SCPH-900X PU-23 PlayStation In-Game-Reset
There is no RF shield on this revision but the top of the board is still very crowded which means placing the chip on the bottom of the board is easier. This bottom location is still not ideal because there are posts on the bottom which do not have an obvious location indicator on the board and which are exactly where the wire runs and chip ideally need to be placed. However if you are careful placing the chip and routing the wires to avoid these, this bottom location will be fine.
