Installing a Modbo 5.0 in a Playstation 2

  • rainbow colors computer chip header

The Modbo chip I will be talking about in this article is the version 5.0 with USB support. All of the information in this article and diagrams are still relevant to the Modbo 4.0, the only difference is that the Modbo 4.0 doesn’t support USB HDD’s – only internal HDD’s via a network adapter or E-sata mod.


For this mod you will need the following:

    • Modbo 4.0/5.0 Chip


    • Soldering Iron with a very fine tip


    • 45 AWG Enamel coated/Insulated wire (For IC points)


    • 26 AWG Insulated wire (For 5v and Ground)


    • Magnifying glass/Jewelers loupe


    • Solder braid


    • Insulation tape


  • Hot glue gun (Optional)
