Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum and also new to the whole ps2 mod/hacking scene. I've own several ps2 in the past but never really thought about modding it before until recently. So before I came to the forum, I've done some research online and found many ways to hack the ps2. However, those information that I found are very outdated. I own a fat ps2 v7 SCPH39001. Right now I'm thinking about either get the solderless DMS4 EZI Pro modchip or go with one of the soft mod method. However, on the hardware mod like modchip it's so easy to decide. But the soft mod way is just so confusing since there are so many ways to do. If I were to go with a soft mod method, I really have no idea which is the best way to do it. I just want to ask you guys what would be the best or most popular up to date method to hack or mod a ps2 to play backup games, homebrews/emulators?
