if it's a cheapmod it might be soldered on the bottom of the socket (making it pretty much impossible to get it out of the socket.. you'd have to look into building a programmer. Check out the milksop link.

There is a full tutorial "how to program your cheapmods" ,
where you can find the easiest way to remove your SST from a socket.

The special tool that you need for this job
is called PLCC chip Extractor, and cost 5 Euro.

a tiny flat head / jewellers screw driver will also do the trick...

use it on all 4 corners....

i use it to remove the chips from the socket on my cheapmod programmer.
