If it needs one point to be soldered how can they sell it as a no solder chip?

I guess the only way to know for sure is to either ask someone who has one, or buy it and see for myself. I downloaded the online instructions, but they won't work on my PC, they keep crashing ms works and wordpad. I was hoping to get one of my friends to print them out for me.

I know the version 4 chip looks like it has 2 wires, but there aren't any wires shown in the v5 chip pic. Maybe I'll call them and find out before buying. I'd just have to send it right back if it needs any soldering at all.

LOl...I don't mind swapping. I use a gameshark with every game anyway, so using a boot disk is no problem for me.

One question though, I can get dvd-r's from sellers on the ********** forum, but what's the difference between them and dvd-rips?

I may be a vet...but I have no experience in ps2 backups...lol

dvdrips sometimes have stuff ripped out of them, and some dvd rips will not boot with a nosolder mod. get you a soldermod (excluding neokey) and you will be much happier, you'll be able to play everything.
And why do you use a GS2 with every game??? CHEATER, LOL, JK.

Ok, thanks for the info. I'm not gonna worry about rips not working then.
If stuff is ripped out of a game I probably wouldn't buy it anyway.

Just ordered the set from easybuy, keeping my fingers crossed it's easy to install else I'll be shipping it back.


LOL...and by the way...I use a GS2 with every game mainly because my memory card, an interact megamemory card, needs the GS2 software for the PS2 to load it. It came with a small booter disk, but I lost that ages ago.
I like cheating though too...LOL

yeah, but some rips are good, like ones with only dummies gone, or extras gone, and sometimes those will be over a nosolder mod's limit. but i would get a nosolder over a neokey, dvdr is better than dvdrips. but why don't you get both of them. i hear it works great.
