A MultiMode3 (MM3) modchip, placed on a notepad alongside a needle.

The MultiMode 3 (MM3) Modchip is a modchip compatible with almost all Playstation and PSONE consoles. It is a stealth chip, which bypasses most modchip detection routines found in newer games. It uses an 8-pin PIC12C508 Microchip, which is about the size of an adult fingernail. There are different versions available for each region (PAL, NTSC, and JAP). Installation of this dsvs DXVmodchip for each Playstation is different, especially the difference between the Playstation and PSone.

InstallationEdit

Unfinished

ConsiderationsEdit

Installation of the MM3 modchip will require you to solder 7 wires directly to the motherboard. Older models of the Playstation are easier to mod since newer models (SCPH-9001 & PSOne) require you to solder onto surface-mount capacitors, which can become dislodged when attempting to solder to them, more than likely causing irreparable damage. Furthermore, the contact point for the wire is small on those capacitors, meaning the wire can easily be broken off.

Where to purchaseEdit

The MM3 can be purchased from EurAsia for $4 + ~$5 shipping. Diagrams detailing the soldering points on each version of the Playstation can be found there as well.
