Default v1 modchip install difficult compared to v4 and v7?

sponsored links

 
ive seen some installers say that they will not chip v1 and v2 ps2 systems
whats the reason for this
i have an installation diagram for v1 magic3 install and it doesnt look any more complicated than the rest just a few more wires soldered to the bios
do ppl shy away from these systems because they are old and the installers are worried about the ps2 dying soon and it coming back on them or is there another reason that installers dont like v1 an v2
i have done only v7 and v4 so far and im about to chip the v1 this morning
just looking for any warnings ppl might have about the v1 b4 i tackle it

thx

hi, ive heard that you need to desolder the power supply from the board to get to a point (i think its scex and clock but not sure) which is meant to be a bit dodge.. aswel as probably its age, poor laser etc..
