    Okay. First time poster here. I'm basically PS2 illiterate when it comes to modding. I have soft modded other systems but I'm confused about the PS2. I want to soft mod it of course.

    I got my PS2 on Christmas so it's the newest one. It's a Slim.

    Model- SCPH-90001
    Browser- 1.40
    CD Player- 2.00
    PlayStation Driver- 2.00
    DVD Player- 3.11U

    What exactly do I need to soft mod my ps2 for playing backup games?

    I have searched but everything seems to be different with everyone's answers.

    I need the simplest way there is.

    Do I need Magic Swap and the Flip-Top? What version of Magic Swap if I need it?

    Hope someone can answer pretty quickly so I can order whatever I need :) Thanks in advance.

    Free McBoot with ESR is the simplest way but since you have the newest model, you need to check the date code on the back of the PS2 Slim. Only date codes 8A, 8B and some 8C work.
