okay i tried using gta san andreas as the toc disc in cogswap still nada
links are not working anymore can sum1 upload it pls?
wow, incredible stuff Ace_2. This would make your exploit equal to the Independence Exploit for Fat PS2. With that, you could do ANYTHING with your PS2. Run Linux, use your FTP as a file server, xfer files between your PC & PS2. Possibilities are endles.
I'll try this later & drop some .ELF files from the old Fat PS2. If they work, that is....that's f***ing awesome!
Not possible with the Version 14 because you can't solder any of the two IDE hard drive add-ons(unless you can run Linux off a USB hard drive or USB memory stick if it's available in ELF form. It might be for sure you can FTP because there's already a Network Adapter in the system. If what you're saying is 100% true, what should happen to this thread?
well other than removing the double post I think dropping a msg with http://www.ps2-scene.org and http://www.ps2nfo.com is definitely in order. Other than then new SCPH-70001 systems having anti-USB programming, having this exploit is very valuable. http://forums.cmgsccc.com/showthread.php?t=6118
Thanks for telling me, I didn't notice that(just remembered-hit back to edit the post, and I AGAIN forgot it would do a double post(it's happened-seriously)).
You mean the 75000 series? I have not seen an SCPH-70005 series anywhere.
This is a thread on Codebreaker.com forums site that talks about the new SCPH-75001 PS2 slims. They have anti-USB programming. Unless you have the correct mod & use an .ELF file, the USB port is blocked. Stupid @$$ Sony only allows licensed USB devices to be used. You can find my comments about this on the thread: http://forums.cmgsccc.com/showthread.php?t=6118
What do you mean by "licensed" USB devices? USB devices licensed by Sony to be used on the PlayStation 2?
yeah. $ony changed the USB driver in the firmware (according to Codebreaker), so any non-licensed USB devices don't work. If you don't know drivers (some ppl don't) it's a software program that tells the hardware how to "talk" to the USB device. Since $ony could decide which USB devices to support when they wrote new driver, they decided to exclude ALL DEVICES except a few. Like their keyboards & Logitech headset. All other devices....r f7cked!
My USB memory plugs that worked on v12 don't work on SCPH-70005.
Maybe this is a really stupid question, but how do I actually use the MC exploit?
I successfully created an exploit CD with IsCentral's PS2 Exploit Utility 5.0, burned it with Alcohol 120%, and loaded it using the Swap Magic 3.6 CD. It came up with a text-only loading screen, and if I read the blurry text correctly it installed the ELF's I had on the Exploit CD to my MC0. After it finished, it went to the main PS2 menu, then tried to load the Exploit CD. At this point I got the red "Insert Correct PS2 disc" screen. I removed the Exploit CD (after removing the little plasticy bit so that the disc would stop spinning), and it gave me the option to browse my MC. I did, and the System file was replaced by a cube with the IsCentral logo on it. At this point, I don't know what to do. How do I actually launch the ELFs which are apparently on my Memory Card?
Are you using a slim PlayStation 2? Remember this, if you're using a slim, you CANNOT choose to make the CD image and Installer Disc. It has to be a Live CD. If your image was an Installer Disc, you'll have to burn it again, but without the ELFs and you HAVE to select Live CD.
If I'm supposed to create a Live CD with no ELFs, what good does it do me? All I end up with is a CD with uELFLauncher, right? How is this an exploit?
Hey, listen, if you have your ELFs already on the Memory Card in BADATA-SYSTEM, you don't need to put them again on a disc. That's why I said not to put any ELFs on the disc(geez, do I have problems to explain what I say). You NEED a Live CD on the slim to make ELFs work(which you haven't specified yet-if you have a slim or fat PlayStation 2). Like I said, if your ELFs are on the Memory Card or a USB Memory Stick, you DON'T need your ELFs to be on a disc. Put the ELFs only if you use the CD method(like I used to do before I switched to hardware MODing). What method are you using?
So the Live CD activates the ELFs stored on the Memory Card? If that's how it works... ok, maybe I'm being really stupid here, but what's the point? I thought the exploit was so that you didn't have to do any disc swapping or anything, but you could simply activate programs off the MC. If I'm mistaken, what exactly is the advantage/use of this exploit?
i dont have alcohol 120.. and i can't install it to my pc...
can i use dvd decrypter to burn exploit instead of alcohol
Back in the days before slimline PS2, there existed a nice exploit called [bold]Independence Exploit[/bold] by 'anonymous author'. Sites like http://www.ps2hd.com & http://www.ps2nfo.com gave hundreds of uses for the exploit, everything from booting backups w/no modchip to copying files using ExecFTP, saving memory card to PC & playing games on HDD. Those were great times.
Then $ony discovered a way to stop the MC exploit, and built a new evil slimline PS2 for this terrible purpose. They removed the HDD altogether, and did not lower the price 1cent. After a great shortage of the PS2 @Christmas, no one could find the old FAT ps2 any longer. Only the slimline. The dirty trick was discovered, homebrew scene was devastated, and many PS2 players spit @the $ony Cerberus.
There existed a website that listed EVERY program, homebrew or not, that could run with [bold]Independence Exploit[/bold]. Where does this page exist? With such a webpage, all the applications could once again be tested with this new exploit. So I have searched but all i find is--
Somewhere in this vast land of PS2 geniuses there exists The One. The Neo of PS2 slimline players. The One shall lead back to the promised land that once existed before the [bold]Independence Exploit[/bold] was lost. He shall lead us to the Promised Land of PS2 gaming that exists somewhere in this world of $ony dirty tricks & scratched DVDs.
I look forward to that day....
That was very poetic, xhardc0re. Thank you. One (possibly)last question from me. I have a slimline PSTwo, Swap Magic 3.6, and a USB HDD from which I can load ELFs using SM. Is there even any point to me trying to get this exploit to work, or was I wasting my time?
The way I understood it originally, the exploit would allow me to launch programs from my MC without having to put any disc in the drive. If in fact some sort of disc is required, such as my SM disc or the Exploit Live CD, then I might as well stick with launching programs from my USB drive, no?
If the Independence Exploit worked, you could run all MC exploits including ExecFTP & WinHiip w/out anything else. Remember, [bold]an exploit is just a trigger so you can run applications[/bold] off the memory card or hard drive (or USB drive in this case).
What does ExecFTP do?
What is WinHiip?
This is exactly what I'm asking. How do I run MC exploits without anything else. Step by step:
1. I have a slim PSTwo. Let's assume the exploit is correctly installed on my MC.
2. With no disc in the drive, I turn it on.
3. ... now what? Can you fill in the rest?
