Well, I sold my PS2 long ago and now I'm interested in getting one. For what it's worth, I currently have a PS3 and Wii. If I get a slim, what's my best way to mod it? If I get a phatty, what's my best way to mod it?


I'm looking at the Memor32 soft mod. I'd highly prefer a mod that doesn't include soldering...

If you don't want to solder then your choices are:

Slim ps2 - Swap magic or memor32 + the memento firmware.

Old ps2 - Swap magic , memor32 or the independence exploit + cogswap loader or hdd loader or both if you want.


Swap magic involves a disc swap , memor32 is direct boot , but you'll have to patch the game first with their software. Independence exploit is launched with a ps1 game , then from there you can load stuff off the memory card like the cogswap loader or hd loader.

I'd go for the old ps2 since you had put in a hdd and use hddloader along with it. Its super easy to mod using the memory card exploit..you can find a used ps2 fat for around 80 bucks on amazon

    @K3N1, The hardware is based on the Dingoo handhelds of the past. Uses the same interface than anything.

    There's lots of emulators and mods you can do on those devices.
  • Shape @ Shape:
    I loved the dingoo. I wish it had caught on more as it's own device since devs could develop apps and stuff for it though.

    That's just a BlackBerry screen, not the entire phone.

    Guess they couldn't be bothered to fork out a new LCD screen of their own.

  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    They probably manufacture their own screen but why if older tech quantity is just laying around unused

  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    They don't want it to go to waste, probably that's why.

    Source ports are hard enough, but sourcing parts in 2022? Impossible.

    Emulation doesn't need high end power houses to be enjoyable

    If its to do with hardware from 80s to early 90s then that's fine, but for the 64-bit systems then that's a problem.

    ll you need to enjoy some emulation is an old PC and some mind altering substances!
