    You can cut the wires at the base of the solder point (dont let anything move freely or your PS2 could short). But the better, more professional way is to use desoldering braid to take off the solder. From the sound of it you didn't install the chip yourself and probably don't have a soldering iron let alone braid, so in my opinion you should just cut the wires as close to the solder points as you can. If it's not interfering with anything I'd just leave it alone, you can never be 100% that it will work when you're done uninstalling. If you're planning on installing a new chip then that's another story.

    to remove either cut the wires from the ps2... or desolder them off... either way is fine... remove the connections from the ps2 then remove the chip itself.. you can use them small scissors for cutting finger or tow nails with.... to cut the wires..

    the chip is useless because i have the HDD... the HDD disables the chip.

    you are obviously serious about gaming - so much that you bought the hard drive. That being said - why would you waste your time and money using a flip-top?

    Consider a DMS3 instead - well worth the money - pay a pro to take out the old chip and put in a DMS3.

    Good luck!

    I do not play online. I am considering buying a network adapter, once I am confident that I can patch my backups for online play.

    Any opinions?

    Trust me, if you're not getting it cuz you're iffy on wheter patching will work, then get it. It's easier than burning. PM me if you need help. 007 online is fun but there are usually not many people on.

    I have been holding out on the online gaming until I'm sure I can get away with it.

    I have a large selection of backups (70+), but need a real indication of whether or not its feasable to go online with them.

    I have the financial resources to go all the way, but need this indication,

    Please provide such if you are able.

    Cheers!
