Yep, that's true, I can dissasemble my Ps3 in a few minutes, I soldered a chip on my old Psx, and another one on my wii. Hopefully I was with a friend who knew what he was doing, or else I would have two nice bricks at home ^^
This kind of hardware mod isn't for newbies, and I think might require good soldering and general electronics skills. What we need is more Hv dumps, not more fried Ps3. I won't try it simply because I don't have the skill for it.
However, I'm more of a software guy, so if anything "Softmod only" emerges, I am willing to help, either for test or just general concept.
Best of luck to all of you that are capable of this, we'll have a great debt to you all soon enough.
