    Well since i cant find a way to get a softmod method to work, im gonna get a modcip. From what ive seen they are really cheap now, so i was wondering which to get and where to get it from.

    http://www.modchipcentral.com/ has good reviews from what i can see ; but i dont see how easier installing a modchip is from softmodding. From what i heard Installing a modchip in a fat ps2 is pretty easy but in a slim its another story.
    To softmod your ps2 you just have to find someone locally to install it on your MEmory card...

    Sorry to hijack the thread, but do you know if they ship to the UK? And if not, does anyone know of a UK site that sells PS2 Mod-Chips?

    Missed that due to it being under the "Shipping within Canada" section. I'll race you to find the shipping costs...

    Ive got no one who has that capability. Nobody i know has an older AR Max or codebreaker. The new AR max doesnt have the media functionality so i cant use the one i have.

    get in contact with one of the free volunteers here they'll install freemcboot on your memory card as long as you cover shipping both ways.

    if you've never soldered electronics before, i can guarantee you'll screw up your ps2 in the process.
