Fitting a modchip - how difficult?
I've done a little soldering in the past, but not much. How hard is fitting a modchip, really? I have a v8 PS2 that I'm willing to "sacrifice" if I need to - the front cover of the CD Tray is snapped off, due to a minor slide-card mishap, so I figure it will make an excellent guinea pig.
If that works, then I plan on doing a few more - I've read the stickies, but I can't seem to see a simple answer... is there a safe way to mod the PSTwo yet? If not, then my guess is that I can still find the odd few of the earlier model around.
EDIT: After taking another look at some of the pictures people have posted of their installs, I'm currently rethinking this plan. Some of the pins you have solder to are tiny, and very close together... I never noticed before how minute they are.
