No Soldering Chip Good Buy?
No Soldering Chip Good Buy? –
Looking around still I seen a Mod chip that is only for V5/v6/v7. No soldering required. It had something to do with making connections by the cd tray. Bad or Good Buy?
I have a no solder mod in my v4 and I have no problems booting anything even dvd-r (since I changed the laser). I use cogswaploader and cd/dvd loader. If you want a cheap way to play backups and homebrew cd's then I'd say go for it.
its pretty much the same as a flip top or slide card... you have to swap discs for it to load backups and imports...
This is true, but jamming a slide card in the front of my ps2 worried me, even though I did it for about 2 months. Also I wanted to put the cd tray cover back on. As for the flip top, yeah they work, but there is a better chance of dust getting inside the ps2, that's why I opted for the no solder.
How do the connections work. You just slide them together it didnt seem to give directions on that and also is it easy to take of the eject and power buttons. It didnt give a very good description. Thanks
Well I can't say exactly how it fits on your version, but my v4 only chip plugged into the back of the motherboard where the power/eject ribbon cable plugged in. I just unplugged the ribbon cable and the red/black power wires, plugged the chip into the connector for the cable on the motherboard and the ribbon cable plugged into the chip. All in all it took me about 15 minutes to install it. The longest part of the install was taking the case off the ps2.
What kind of DVD Burner Do you have DigFX
one more question if you had only a little bit of money would you save up for San Andreas or a Mod Chip?
I have a memorex dual format double layer dvd burner. And as for the money question, the no solder mod is only about $10 and you can install it yourself. If you get a no swap mod chip you're looking at more money and you'll probably want someone else to install it for you. If you get the no solder mod, you should have plenty of money left over for gta san andreas.
Definetly have somebody else install it. I have no soldering experience at all. Where can you find it for 10 dollars? Ebay? Some of the stuff they get away with there selling swap majic with slide card for 50 Bucks incredible!
