    Make sure you have a good soldering skills

    Get a card reader that's compatible

    When you open up your console be very careful with the ribbons or flex

    Don't get too excited (common cause of errors haha)

    Try to look for TRANSCEND RDP8, it's most likely available in your country.

    12 dollors might be nothing for you in USA, but Rs. 698 is very high in India

    india is still part of the world... idc where you live in india, if it says free shipping worldwide, it will ship to you free no matter where you are.
    To be honest I just got 2 in the mail by error on the warehouse, and they said to keep it. Was going to send to you free, but clearly your not even attempting to get it for yourself, so Ill just let you wait and find one on your own.
    Not trying to be rude, but I really dislike people who come up with excuse after excuse. Good luck, Ive got to get back to my hard mod attempt lol.

    I actually wasn't the one who needs the card reader, i am in the Philippines (just above your first comment in this thread)

    I am well aware that you're not trying to be rude, and clearly you already have something in mind about the things going on around this site.

    I appreciate that you're trying to help, but try to read the whole thread because i am actually doing the same thing.

    Goodluck on your hardmodding, make sure you have a NAND backup first

    I really thought you were OP lol. MAH BAD XD
    Can you actually help me if I get on join.me
    I am following a tutorial but the tutorials picture shows a samsung type chip as a reference point but my board doesnt have one, and the only pic they have of the data ports is the close ups, so I cant reference to anything else on the board. I just finished tinning all my wires and am ready to solder down to the board, I just need to know where.
