Tip: Trouble when phoenxing

When the CPS2 carts are being phoenixed the chip that does the decoding sometimes has a corrupted key in memory. AFTER cutting the battery off the board, take something, such as a pair of hemostats or Kelly clamps and short across capacitor CCI for several seconds. This is the capacitor next to the positive lead of the battery. This will kill the battery backed memory on the cartridge and allow the phoenixed code to work as designed.
