    Ok , I have a network adapter with the fat ps2 ad a 250 gi unmodded harddrive. I want to mod my ps2 without a modchip and i dont want to buy swap magic. My friend has swap magic and i could borrow it, but i just want to be able to play games off my harddisk. How can i mod my ps2 without a modchip?


    Oh, and i know how to softmod xboxes so im not completly new to modding.

    You HAVE to spend money to mod your PS2 in ANY WAY. Weather it's for the ARMAX (CogSwap), swap magic, HDLoader or a modchip.

    Since you have a friend with swap magic, you can ask him to install a memory card exploit so it could boot up an HDLoader elf and use it for free.

    ok, my friend with swap magic doesnt know how to create a memory card exploit. Im not even sure what an exploit is. Is that what lets you save the swap magic files on your memory card? Basically , what i want to do is save the swap magic files on my memory card or hd so i dont have to keep boworring the swap magic from him. Is this even possible?

    Well, as far as i know about MC Exploiting, you need to use uLaunchELF and copy the files to your memory card, then use a PS1 game to boot it.
