For the less experienced modders, that risk destroying their ps2's and have never picked up a solder iron. I figure it would be cool if someone with alot of experience modding to possible post a step by step guide here on afterdawn. Afterdawn ownz my favorite site online so far. Thankfully due to so many sources that is has to educate us with. So can someone Plz Plz PLZ, take the time to help a fellow disciple out? I am currently down 2 ps2's from screwing up the soldering process... mostly on my part. Tryin to install a duo 2 chip into v9's... My main problem is sticking the solder to the damn board. For some reason the solder prefers to stay on the iron than on the surfaces. in diagram 3. Someone asked before if it was possible to attach the solder to the corresponding legs.. i dunno if anyone has tried this .. but it actually does sound easier. i beleive my solderer is too big so i ordered a bunch of installation stuff from another modsite in canada. I hope the Tips will be worthwile and possible STICKY worthy for Modders of the future.
