The choice? –
I've modded a bunch of Xbox consoles and now I'm going to chip the old PS2 that I have. Few questions:
* I wonder which modchip is the best (and easiest) choice to install?
* I think my version is v14 and I'm going to buy the harddrive/network adapter, how big harddrive does it support?
Any links with tuts and other stuff to read are welcome
Thnx for this nice forum!
You said you have a v14 PS2 if so it doesn't support an HD, make sure of your version. If you have v14 your only choice is usb extreme which isn't that good. If you don't have v14 and you can use an HD, HDloader/Toxic supports HD's upto 2 TB's.
My two favorite chips would have to be the Matrix Infinity and the Duo 3. Matrix is great chip with many features. And the Duo 3 is a low priced boot chip, if your just looking to play your back-ups the DUO 3 is the way to go.
Since you said you want to use a hard drive, both the Matrix and Duo 3 can run HDloader. Matrix can load HD off the memory card via DEV modes. The Duo 3 can do it from a cd/dvd. You might also want to look into the DMS4 chip, it runs another HD program called Toxic OS. Personally I don't think toxic is worth it, but it might be something you might want to look into.
Stuff to read, just look around the forums we have plenty of good threads with great info.
EMJ: Thnx for the reply. I did write a typo on that one. I have a V4 of the box. After reading the http://www.mod-chip.com/en/ps2version.htm guide it confirmed that. I don't have a screw in the expansion slot so I have the old V4. (SCHP-30004).
Is this version more "hard" to mod than other modells? I've installed the 29 wire (or something) on a xbox earlier and it went ok.
The only thing that I find challenging are the soldring of point PONM of the http://www.duomodchip.com/english/in..._v4_no_gap.jpg but I've never seen alternative points to solder on, so I guess that is the only way.
Any last tips b4 I buy a chip?
Both chips are reasonably comparable to install... Just be thankfull you don't have to solder onto the DVD controller. Something you can do if you are worried about shorting out the legs to each other is use two razor blades placed between the legs to isolate the area you are soldering...
