Romeo Mod –
Any one have any instructions on how to do the Romeo Mod for V9-10 consoles? Mainly I would just like to know some techniques on lifting the correct pin. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Use your search button mate and you will find heaps of information on the above topic as with what is the best tool to use to lift pin 17 I normaly use a very fine pair of tweezers and apply heat to the base of the pin and lift it off the pad.......No probs so far on about 60 units
Thanks that is exactly what i wanted to know. I will try that and let you know.
I was also wondering if the track cutting method is concidered to be just as good. I don't want to have to put in any fuses. And can I get a pic of what track to cut on the bottom side or top of the board. I couldnt find any.
The best method is the one above.....As with cutting the track I have not tried this procedure so I can not tell you how well it works.....Just be very carefull when lifting the pin people have been known to break the leg and damage the pad this resulting in a useless Mboard unless you are a qualified tek and can repair....If you have not done this kind of work before just try and land your hands on a dead PS2 to practice on it first also Ps1 boards.............
I can't seem to find tweezers fine enough to grad hold of the pin. Could any one post a pic of the track I need to cut for pin 17 and what point to run to 5v?
Thanks for all your help. I have done one track cur method abd then a pin lift method. I am not sure which one I prefer at this point but they both work great!!
