Well, can you not modify any other $5 console instead?
It'd be a shame to do this to a debug station.

Anyway, the essential part is swapping the 53.2 oscillator for a 53.69 one.

nothing else needs to be changed? just swap the one chip?

The debug station isn't anything special. The only special parts on it is the blue plastic shell it comes in. The HC05 with the unlocked security can be re-created by flashing a new old stock chip :P
Development Console: SCPH-5502 with 8MB RAM, MM3 Modchip, PAL 60 Colour Modification (for NTSC), PSIO Switch Board, DB-9 breakout headers for both RGB and Serial output and an Xplorer with CAETLA 0.34.

PlayStation Development PC: Windows 98 SE, Pentium 3 at 400MHz, 128MB SDRAM, DTL-H2000, DTL-H2010, DTL-H201A, DTL-S2020 (with 4GB SCSI-2 HDD), 21" Sony G420, CD-R burner, 3.25" and 5.25" Floppy Diskette Drives, ZIP 100 Diskette Drive and an IBM Model M keyboard.
