Well guys I feel much better about the chip now!
Got the chip from modobots.com in Edmonton Ab, Canada. I live in Calgary so I figured I would find a local installer to save money on shipping and hassle of shipping the PS2. I found modster.ca, he was going to charge me $50 for the install, which was fine. He had the PS2 for a week, and whenever I called him and actually got a hold of him he told me he couldn't get it working.
(which is what initialed this thread) Finally after a week of him trying, I decided that it was time I get it back as I was getting worried the Ps2 itself might get damaged. modster informed me that he thinks the chip is bad, and that he was going to charge me $50 for the attempt. I was not happy about that, I was willing to pay half or whatnot but full install price! (dunno if its common practice but I wasn't impressed personaly)
I then got in contact with Marc (Marcus21), he showed a couple pics of his installs upon my request and they looked really good! Marc kept in contact with me untill I finally got my chip back from modster. I decided after seeing the pictures and talking to modobots that sending it to marc was a good idea and that modobots approved of his work. I sent the chip and PS2 on thursday, he got it friday and informed me today he got it working no problems at all AND he sent me a pic of the install as per my request. He is sending the PS2 to me monday! AMAZING service and his work looks really good. I'll get the PS2 tuesday and be able to play w00t!
In other words, if you need an install in canada or AB, talk to Marc you won't regret it and stay away from modster.ca (I had a bad experience...)
