OK I have been searching messages for a few hours now and I have not found direct answers for my situation. I have a v7 PS2. I cant solder. Noone I know can solder well enough. I am skeptical after reading some posts about people sending their PS2's out to have a modchip installed and getting ripped off. Is there a no-solder method available to me? I have tried the slide card trick with a gameshark version2, but that hasnt worked yet. I see a website (easybuy2000) who has a no-solder chip for v5,6,&7. Does this chip work and what limitations? Thanks.
