Does softmodding damage your PS2?
So there are these guys in my country who are hard modding everything. They've worked in the field for years, they work well, they are respected. I've heard from one of them that softmodding may lead to laser damage. I assumed he was referring to the fact that hardmodding v9-v12 units usually includes the Romeo fix, while softmodding without it means trouble. Fair enough. Now another guy tells me he only does hard mods because softmodding will eventually lead to a corrupt firmware. Has anybody heard anything about this? Is there any reason softmodding a v7 console, like mine, would damage anything?
