Hey Smokyrain, just sent core2kid a pm, thanks for the info....i was going crazy already
Cool, you will like having fmcb 1.8 on your mc, and being able to load backups using ESR.
Or loading other apps(elf files) if you want just through your Sony Browser.
yeah, that's going to awesome....I have an older fat ps2, i found a used hard drive adapter, and picked up a 80 gig ide drive, but I was under the impression that I needed SM to load my games onto the hard drive? So hopefully coe2kid can help me out with this...
Nope, you only need Winhiip 1.7.6 to install games to hdd.
That method is using your pc and hdd
or you can do it over the network
Yeah, I got winhip a while ago, just was kinda of confused about building the whole memory card thing...Which I think is really weird because I have done about ten psp's already...Go figure
Yeah, too bad more stuff wasn't like the psp. Just transfer to memory stick and your good to go, of course have pandora or use battery installer.
My DS-lite was really the simplest of all, lol. Just have a slot 1 card , transfer files and your all set.
You will understand once you have your fmcb 1.8 on a mc, and read some info over at psx-scene/forums on it.
The big thing with fmcb is the files have to be installed to mc and you need a way to install it, can't just be copied to mc to install.
i have put cfw on many psps but ps2 is alot harder
Hey smokyrain, which versions ps2 wont fmcb work with? I ask coz i saw something around stating that.
It is just the SCPH-9000x models with a Date code 8c or higher that won't work.
Sony made a revision to the Bios not long after the release of them.
And the very first 2 models of PS2. There is a fix for them I believe.
The psx-scene forum is down at the moment or I would find the thread for it.
I'm having problems installing fmcb 1.6 on scph 75001 series, when i insert a patched disc it auto boots and freezes after that at a black screen, why?
Not sure why. Did you put your DVDELF.BIN in the INJECT folder when installing.
I would check the tutorial here: http://bootleg.sksapps.com/tutorial...ps.com/tutorials/fmcb/FMCB_install_guide.html
and scroll down to the configurator.
Do you have "fastboot" set to on, or also you can hit R2 as the PS2 loads up and ESR should start.
These files can also be launched during boot-up with the button presses :
BOOT.ELF ( R1)
ESR.ELF ( R2)
HDLOADER.ELF ( L1)
SMS.ELF ( L2)
FMCB Configurator ( START)
I would recommend to update to 1.8 as its all set and ready to go to autoboot the patched disk.
Or same thing you can edit the fmcb configurator.
Thanks, I'll just assign and hold a button. It works ok, but I let it boot to browser, then hit circle to return, scroll down and select ESR. This method i prefer.
Listen, I'm thinking of trading my FAT PS2 for a SLIM PS2. If i do this, will i be able to boot from an external (USB)HDD? or Can i just use the external (USB)HDD on my FAT PS2?
If these are possible, would i be able to boot ps1 isos?
Always appreciate your input!
