    why would you want to change the lid when the slim ps2 top loads. read a little there are other things to do to the slim ps2 so you can use sm3

    Um fliptop is the best choice aside from slimtool, but its very risky in the warranty sence. Id go with the slimtool since it doesnt require you opening your ps2 no breaking anything off, so warranty stays fully intact.

    I've heard about just folding the top back and using the warranty sticker as a hinge and not removing it, I've also heard about freezing the sticker or heating the sticker and that allows the warranty to stay intact. Sounds like a massive pain in the ass if you ask me, I agree with kyozetsu, go with slimtool.

    But if you already have the fliplid, just be really careful, a quick search might reveal some more answers too, give it a shot.

    I installed the fliptop without voiding the warranty -- use the sticker as a hinge -- no problem.
