    About SCPH-75000 CW - is it SCPH-75000 (a) or SCPH-75000 (b) version? The same question about SCPH-70003.
    For now these models are added as not confirmed cause it is relevant information. Please provide also for slim models _database.bin file.
    Thank you for your help !

    Thank you, both models added to database. Interesting that I own the same SCPH-70003 but unfortunately all serials were removed.

    Major update:
    Thank to @Vedita BR was found very rare unit SCPH-50011 (FAT released for region: 0x07 Mexico).
    Interesting thing that mainboard (GH-026) most likely was taken from another case (box), cause sticker data is completely different from PS2IDENT data. Sticker shows that this is SCPH-50001(a) and completely different Serial. This mainboard is equipped with before unknown Mechacon v5.6 chip revision CXR706080-105GG. This chip is also added into psident database.
    The most interesting story about Model ID. This model has Model ID 0x20d426, while Model ID 0x20d427 belongs to SCPH-70004 CB.
    To my mind it is safe to assume that SCPH-50011 was the very last FAT model (ROMVER 0190AC20040329). This also can be used as confirmation that SCPH-70004 was very first SLIM model. Very interesting - I thought that Japan models was released earlier for all generations.

    Also added full data for TV unit KDL-22PX300. Credits to @Senyuki . Added mainboard model GH-070-42. This unit incorrectly added with P-chassis while it has no Chassis model at all. For the most close chassis name can be used "tvcombo" label, comment found in bootrom:
    Code:
    20100415-124238,ROMconf,PS20250WC20100415.bin,kuma@rom-server/~/tvcombo/g/app/rom
    This is not fixed in database.

    Also added dump for DTL-H30102, ROMVER 0150ED20001228, GH-013. Credits to @krHACKen . On some DTLs ps2ident cannot recognised Region and Mechacon, so ps2ident assumes that this is 0x01 (USA) and v2.13 (CXP102064-752R-T6).

    Also
    * Added various model IDs
    * Added SCPH-30004 from @Senyuki
    * Added SCPH-50004 from @Freedy
    * Added SCPH-50002 from @Tupakaveli
    * etc.

    It happened before. The Japanese SCPH-30000 was actually a D-chassis unit, while the US got the first expansion-bay PS2 model.

    The MODELIDs might not necessarily be an indicator of what came first. IMO, depending on when they assigned a release a MODELID, it could just be an index number that was created in the order that they decided to make releases. For the later PS2 models, all PS2 releases had really small differences in hardware. As of the SCPH-75000, it is possible that the only differences are in software and the sticker on its bottom.

    As of sometime in 2003 when there was only the H/I-chassis release of the SCPH-50000, the SCPH-50011 variant did not exist. So you are probably right to say that this release appeared later on, in comparision to the other regional releases.

    If it's known as just "SCPH-50011", you might also want to double-check that. For example, a SCPH-50000 is a H-chassis GH-023, SCPH-50000a seemed to be an I-chassis GH-026, while the SCPH-50000b should be a GH-029 J-chassis set.

    It's not an assumption by PS2Ident. I remember that while the sceCdMV() function call never works, this MECHACON actually returns some data.
    So I made it remark that the acquisition of the data failed (which is correct), while returning whatever that was returned. So it is really up to you to decide on what you want to believe.

    The MECHACON is the same in all DEX sets - so when they changed sceCdMV to return the region as well, the DEX still had to return something.

    @sp193
    Regarding SCPH-5xxxx units.
    I have SCPH-50004 SS(a) from Senyuki, J-Chassis on sticker. According to your theory it should be (b) version while it has (a). Unfortunately there is no way to check motherboard.
    All other models that I collect are really:
    H-Chassis - GH-023 - no small letters after model number
    I-Chassis - GH-026 - (a) letter (only 2 sticker photos)
    J-chassis - GH-029 - (b) letter (only 2 sticker photos)

    Regarding SCPH-50011 - this unit has wrong sticker from SCPH-50001 (a) model with different serial. I added this model into ps2ident database as SCPH-50011 (a) cause the only sticker picture I found over Internet was from SCPH-50011 (a).

    I also have some sticker with no chassis - is it safe to assume that this is H chassis?

    At the end of the day, a theory is still a theory, so it is possibly still true that the model numbers still did not always change with the chassis model for the SCPH-50000. The moment you found a SCPH-50000a that is marked as a J-chassis, it already proved that the chassis did not always correspond to the model number for this series. But it could still mean that the J-chassis has a GH-029. This could be true, if its ADD0x010 value is different from the H/I chassis value.

    I believe you can assume that a SCPH-50000 with no chassis identifier is a H-chassis GH-023, since they once had B/C chassis with no chassis letters printed on them. They seemed to have only started when multiple regions begun to use different model numbers with the same chassis (from D onwards).
    This would be particularly true if the parts installed are older than those found on a I-chassis, like the MECHACON.

    What is the first PS2 serial number? For SCPH-10000 would it be J0000001? Or does it start with J1000001? I'm wondering because for some reason the US version SCPH-30001 shows V1 serial numbers begin with U1 and V2 serial numbers begin with U0 (out of order).

    I have a launch SCPH-10000 with J0500044 S (March 2000, as purchased by its original owner), but I also found some on Yahoo Auctions Japan that begun with 04 instead. The revised SCPH-10000 has a different serial number range; mine is J2270914 S, purchased in May 2000 by its original owner.

    If the factory matters, my launch unit was from S KISARAZU. My other unit was from S MINOKAMO. My SCPH-15000 was from S KOHDA, J3241501 S.

    I have temporarily acquired a DTL-H70011S. Would running PS2Ident on this help anyone? Also, where could I download it?
    Similarly, I need a way to do master disc patching... >.<
