    Or when you say step by step, do you mean more than just where to solder the wires on?

    Here are my pointers to you...

    Put the chip more towards the middle of the board so no wires will have to go an extra long length to reach a point. Make sure all of the wires are nice and tight and have no major bends in them. You have 9 wires to solder on legs, which is somewhat difficult, but just take your time and you'll do fine.

    After you solder the legs get a magnify glass out and check inbetween the legs to make sure you have no solder bridges; this is very common. If you do have a tiny bridge between one and you turn your ps2 on, don't worry, it will NOT burn your ps2 out, but it will result in you not being able to go past your browser screen even with original games. Your PS2 may even just go to a black screen right away.

    Get the back side points soldered on the motherboard first and then move on to the front side. Solder them in order so your not going back and forth over wires and burning the hell out of them with your solder gun. They suggest not using anything more than a 15 watt solder gun for chip installs.
