Hi all, well I did it I actually managed ti install the mod and it bloody well works!!!!
It took about 4 hours, I bougyht a new soldering Iron and magnifying lens, (dont even attempt it without) the points are so small it was serious brain damage. Thanks to all the help here, Charlie you PDF was amazing help in getting the PS2 apart..
Pity there isnt one that shows the Messiah. I am confused I that was the chip to get tho some threads here still talk about the Magic chip? did I get the wrong one?
Anyhow all games tried so far work striagt away!!!!! but I noticed the official games make little or no noise, but the white Grade A Intenso CDR makes it wirr and click occasionally (sounds like scratching) is some media better than others?
I presume this is all to do with balance of the CDR?
Good luck fellow chippers..
