    Hello B4N5H33,

    and welcome to GBAtemp. Please take a seat and wait a sec. till the dude at the reception is back and gives you the keys to your room.

    Oh and modchips are already illegal over here, it's just that people still offer (to install) them regardless what the law says. [​IMG]

    The chip itself is kind of legal (doubtful proof) but if the BIOS is flashed already and allows you to start other things than homebrew it's illegal. On the other hand, any technical modification that was developed to disable a copy protection is against § 95a Abs. 3 UrhG (a more comprehensive explanation can be found at wikipedia), this includes technical modifications that allow homebrew if the developer of the hardware disabled homebrew intentionally and said so (e.g. Sony), though.

    But enough of that, I doubt that you'll have problems to find a shop which has got the chip you want. [​IMG]
