I posted this same thread at ******.*** but I'm trying to get as much info as I can so I'm posting here as well.
Ok I bought a PStwo a little while back and I'm already tired of buying games so I'm ready to crack this thing open and chip it.
As soon as my paycheck gets deposited into my account I'm going to order the Matrix Infinity Green Dot. Here are a couple of links of stores I have in mind.
If you guys have any other stores in mind or a chip that you guys think would be better be my guest to speak up.
Now on to the questions.
I have a SCPH-79001 PStwo. From what I've gathered online this is a v16 PStwo right?
What kind of screwdriver do I need to open this thing up, and do I need to get one of those dvd lids? I've got plenty of solder, wire and a 15 watt iron from the time I modded my Wii so all of that is taken care of. I just need to know what else I need to get.
Are there any decent take apart tutorials online with pictures? The PStwo is really tiny and looking at the install diagrams for the Matrix Infinity looks really complicated so it would be nice to see what I need to do to make the tearing down and building back up much easier for me.
Also, Where do I actually set the chip down on the motherboard. With the Saturn and Wii modchips there were always pictures on where to place the chip on the console before wiring but for the Matrix Infinity I can't find anything.
I feel ok about my soldering skills. I've modded my Wii and my Saturn so I think I ready to take this project on.
Thanks to anyone that can help and sorry if this topic has been done to death.
