    Generally the cheapest chip is the modbo 4.0 which is a clone of the matrix infinity, but it works just as well. Costs around $15, modchipcentral has them.

    Or you could put freemcboot on it, much easier.

    He might have a Later-than-8C 90001.

    But if he doesn't that would be the best way to go. ESR or OPL (disc or harddrive) are the best programs to load backups in conjunction with FMCB.

    Yeah, he could, but in case he didn't, I posted the suggestion.

    Just so you know... it's A LOT OF DAMN WORK installing a PS2 chip. You might just wanna go with FreeMcboot and ESR patch your games.

    FreeMCBoot is really the best, easiest and cheapest option.

    You only need a certain disk and a memory card.

    Let me tell you something. NEVER, EVER get a modchip. It will burn out on you like it did with me.

    Yup, that's why I suggested it.
