i heard that you didn't need a mod-chip if you have a gs2 or a swap magic disc. You can use both of them together i heard and then u can play all back up games. gs2 needs an original game or cd that is bigger than the one you are going to boot, the swap magic dvd boot cd is probably bigger than most of the games out there. since you have both of them, you'd probably be able to play any game u d/l and burn. I order a gs2 and a swap magic disc. i just hope it comes soon. I just want to know if any one knows what is the easiest way to boot a copied ps2 game because i have seen so many on the net. If any one can give me directions or tell me the easiest way it is done, PLEASE DO!!! Thanks.
