    If I wanted to upgrade to hdadvance's latest elf from my pc threw execftp, would I have to rename the HDA.ELF file to BOOT.ELF?

    I did use the correct Title.db and I tried transfering BOOT.ELF & HDA.ELF mc/0/BADDATA-SYSTEM, but it doesn't load. The white screen of the mem card shows but then it gows black. I did a sector repair on the iso and fixed that but I still remains black

    anyways if anyone could just post how the mc/0/BADATA-SYSTEM WORKS ie: like how it reads would be cool. ~peace

    Ok I think you answered my question. It's the latest HDA elf.file. Not sure if it's 2.0 it might be newer.

    That was just the .elf files that was placed in the files folder.

    I did get that elf file to boot up but I had to install ps2menu-k.I installed the newest hda.elf with my regular hda 1.0 and renamed it to HDA2.ELF. When I load HDA2.ELF it runs but it's buggy. I get the HDAdvance big letters showing on top of my game list. I'm going to re scan for bad sectors with cdmage and see what comes up or try another HDA.ELF file.
