I want to modchip my PS2 so that I can play PS1 and PS2 imports on it (I have a chipped PS1, but the poor thing is starting to die on me, even after replacing the laser and adjusting the bias and gain.). I want to be able to play them straight off the disks, so if anyone mentions FreeMcBoot, I will slap them. Anyway, my questions are: - What PS2 model is the best for modding? I have a Slim SCPH-75002 (which is a V14, I think?) Is this a good model to work with or would it be worth getting a different one for modding? Does it even matter at all? - Where's the best place to buy a chip? Needs to ship to Australia and be reasonably priced. - What chip should I buy? - How easy is it to mess up? Of course I'm not just gonna jump straight in and start soldering without practice, but if I do something wrong could it kill my PS2? Could the smallest mistake mean disaster, or would it need to be really big f*** up to actually cause permanent damage? I only have one of these things and replacing it would cost money, something I don't exactly have a lot of. That's about it. I don't really need any tips for the actual soldering part. I've already looked up some tutorials and my Dad knows how to solder (he is/was an electrician, so I'm pretty sure he knows what he's doing), so he's gonna help me.
