will it work? I have one of these monsters, that after repeated attempts to "re-flash" the p.o.s. DMS3 (best chip for this model, my ASS! NEVER DMS3 a 10000!) by demodding it, and demodding my U.S. v5, remodding the 5 with the DMS3, JUST TO RUN THE DAMN FLASH, then reinstalling the DMS in the 10000, over and over, until I buggered a trace, which caused the tray to not open anymore, the DMS3 NEVER worked on it, anyway, and it's on it's way to the landfill, exept for a charity case friend of mine wants a "FREE" (or really cheap) PS2, so since it's going to HAVE to be knife-swapped just to open it, if these are compatible with the Asian Swap Magic, that's as cheap as it gets, but someone PLEASE spare me any more headache on this, if Jap S.M. does'nt work on these, tell me now before waste time and money to buy a set of those, I know (close enough) where Bob ard found the panese mini-suberine the U.S.S. Ward put a shell hole through the conning tower of, on 12-7-1941, and I plan to give this junker a nice "Funeral At Sea", since that spot is consicered a Japanese National War Grave (Respectfully, opf course), anyway, it somehow seems comicly approppriate to command it to the deep, blue, sea, the next time I go deep-sea fishing..... it's on the way.
Answering my own quetion, for the archives, for the benefit of anyone who might click that post looking for the answer, yes 10k's can use swap magic, it's the swap METHOD you have to be creative about.
I found my perfect 10k, a DTL-H 10000 Developer's Tool, that allows for everything everwanted out of one, without modifcation, and I'm enamored with it.
