    Default Disable the lockout chip on my French NES

    Would someone be willing to disable the modchip in my French NES so that I am able to play PAL-A region titles on it please? I don't have any PAL-B carts so at the moment it's not much use.

    Happy to pay for the work and the return postage if drop-off/pick-up isn't feasible.

    It's a simple job of lifting a pin leg up you can do it with a small screw driver. Google it and you'll find many videos showing you how it's done.

    it really is as easy as cutting one leg on the chip with a pair of snippers.

    have a look here to see pics of the process

    dont do it with a screwdriver please,as that may cause damage to the chip if its ensued that prying a leg from a chip can damage the chip itself

    you can send it along to me ill do it,if you want
    i have got too much hardware,it would only hurt your eyes to look at it here
