I don't know what happened, I just don't know. I mean, I've heard alot of the chatter about how difficult or risky modding a PS2 could be due to the small soldering points, but this is like nothing I could have ever imagined. I ordered the chip, it arrived, I opened the PS2, and began the installation. I figured, "Hey, I'll due the eight points on the back of the board last, to save some trouble." but those same eight points would be my problemin the end. Everything was going fine, and I didn't see where the "danger" was. The only connection that gave me any trouble on the front of the board was the Ground, but I figured I could handle that after everything else was connected. Problem after problem confronted me, worries about running out of solder, running out of wire, and even a severe soldering iron burn. But yet, I triumphed and finally completed all connections on the front of the board. When I flipped the board over, only eight points remained. I made my first attempt to connect point B and failed miserably. I tried again but still, no dice. I even resorted to using my father as a third arm, but his only advice after we still couldn't connect it was "What if we got some needle nose pliers and opened up the holes some?" Don't worry, I wasn't desperate enough to try it. And Don't even get me started on that stupid Ground. Why is it so f@#$%n' hard to solder a wire directly to the damn board!? But I'm begging, if you have installed a Magic V 5k6 please tell me how you grounded it and soldered those eight points on the back!
