I am an xbox softmodder and I am quite new to ps2s...I bought my first ps2 yesterday it was one of those slimlines. Please dont flame or harass, I have searched these forums and read up, and it appears that the only softmod solution to the slimlines is the swap magic 3.3 Discs with the switches or flip top cover.
I was wondering if there were more possiblities to softmodding a slimline? Why not go ahead and do the swapmagic? Well it appears that many people are having trouble getting this to work, especially with the switches and even the flip tops. It doesn't seem like a very consistant mod, and even when it is modded I see peoples ps2s stop reading backups...which could be because many reasons(media gone bad, dirty laser, dying laser, etc...) but it looks like this is the only option I assume.
It seems like there is somethign similar to swap magic called breaker pro on

At the bottom pic it looks like they include switches as well
If Im wrong about my knowledge of softmods for slimlines let me know!
Also what would u prefer, the switches or the flip top? These switches are cheap and seem like they SHOULD work better than what people are encountering.
