    your better of installing 2.71 SE kinda like modchip ..

    the modchip is only good if youve got a brick... or a higher firmware than 2.71...

    i'm thinking about getting a modchip so i can have 3.0 and keep my 1.5
    edit: i didnt vote because i dont have a modchip yet so i dont know if it's worth it or not.

    Stop saying ftw/ftl, win/winnage, phail, etc. Please.

    Get it but only if you or someone else is experienced with soldering something like this.

    yeah a modchip is only useful if you have a brick psp. In my opinion i wouldn't get it yet since the price is a little bit too high maybe i would get one if the price would be lowered

    www.modchipstore.com

    That should have the info about it you want.

    Mod chip is a great idea because if your flash0 corrupts for some reason even custom firmware might not save you (but this is really rare)

    The mod chip does have some drawbacks though, as it is possible to completely fuck your psp up if you are stupid.
    I finally updated my sig, can\'t thing of anything decent to put it in though

    IMO, if I had the money to buy a modchip, I'd just set it aside and definately not get the chip. Why? Well, AFAIK the only real advantage the modchip has is saving a bricked PSP. So, I say, install custom firmware, 1.5 homebrew, 2.71 SE-B'', whatever you want... and there will always be some slim chance of bricking it, but IF that happens, THEN get the modchip. Plus, if you've got some soldering skills and want to do it yourself to save $200, but you're afraid you might screw up... well, now you have a bricked PSP that nothing else can save, so you have nothing to lose! Well, okay, $100 for the chip, but still better than risking a working PSP just for uneccessary prevention.
