Mc Exploit: What is it? The Mc exploit is an exploit that is used to run homebrew or any piece of code off the ps2. There was a flaw in how the ps2 read psx(ps1) games. The exploit makes it capable to run any psx game and make it boot up the files that is stored on the MC. Please note: this tutorial is for people with [bold]MODIFIED[/bold]systems e.g. systems with a modchip. the swap disc method will work also. Tools Needed: A Ps2(wow) FilePack Found Here http://www.geocities.com/mannyman7899//mcexploit.htm(you have to right click the text and click save target as) A way of booting disc up e.g. moddifacation or swap disc. A blank cd-r (any brand should work) Psx game With those lets begin. First before anything, what you need to do is make a TITLE.DB file. This file tells the ps2 when the Psx game is insereted, instead of booting the game, boot the exploit. to do this, you need your psx disc id number. to obtain this, first insert the psx game into your pc. click notepad and open the file SYSTEM on the drive the psx game is in.(if youu dont see it, then click all files under files of type)you should see something like "BOOT2 = cdrom0:\SCUS_973.57;1" In this case, SCUS_973.67 is the disc id.(yours will be different unless you are using the same game i am). copy only the 937.57.(you will need to remember your SCUS thing) next, open the titleman frontend folder from the rar file and double click titleman fronted. On the bottom it has SLES_. if yours was SLUS, then change it to SLUS etc. then paste the number you copied earlier. now click create TITLE.DB and then ADD Exec and close it. A popup window will should show up. click yes. if it didnt, go into the directory where titleman fronted app was. if there is a TITLE.DB file then you have created one succesfully. YAH.Dont get too exited though the hard part is right around the corner. Now here is the complicated part. I will try my best to explain it to you. you know windows executable files are in the .exe format? well Ps2 executable files are the same however, they are refered to as .ELF. what this exploit does is install those .ELF files to help you with your ps2. e.g. there is a hdadvance and hdloader Elf that allows you to have hdadvance running off the memory card. there are also fun apps like Mp3 studio elfs that can run mp3's off an ps2 hdd, or the famous NES Emulator that is capable of many old but good games to be played on the Ps2. Anyway it would be pointless to do the memory card exploit without any elfs. so in this part, i will teach you how to add elfs to the mix. First, you must get the elf files, duh. i recommend http://www.exploitstation.com and go to elf library.(you should never go without the formatting elf tool. if you do something terrebly wirong, it can render you mc usless. with this format tool, it can revive "dead mc's". included with the filepack you downloaded earlier, i have Hdadvance and execftps Elf already on the exploit. when you download the elf files you want, save them to the mcexploit.rar/ files directory. Next, you have to add these files to kl.dat. To do that, you must open ntepad and then open KL.Dat from the files folder. you should see something like ths: NOTE where you see mco:/BADATA-SYSTEM/HDLD_SVR.ELF;HDL DUMB Server, delete this whole line up until you only see R2= so it will look like this AUTO=0 =mc0:/BADATA-SYSTEM/HDA.ELF;HD Advance /\= O= X= R1=mc0:/BADATA-SYSTEM/EXECFTPS.ELF;Exec FTPs R2=mc0:/BADATA-SYSTEM/HDLD_SVR.ELF;HDL Dumb Server R3= L1= L2= L3= NOTE where you see mco:/BADATA-SYSTEM/HDLD_SVR.ELF;HDL DUMB Server, delete this whole line up until you only see R2= so it will look like this: AUTO=0 =mc0:/BADATA-SYSTEM/HDA.ELF;HD Advance /\= O= X= R1=mc0:/BADATA-SYSTEM/EXECFTPS.ELF;Exec FTPs R2= R3= L1= L2= L3= I know now you are lost. now its time for some info again. now this is the KL.Dat file. when you boot your ecploit for the first time, a program called keyloader will boot. this is where you can select what elf you want to start. Now you see X= R1= etc? those are buttons on your controller. when keylauncher boots, it will have all of the buttons, and the elf file next to it. e.g. with this setup, when keylauncher boots, i hit square and hdadvance boots. now make sure all your elf files are in the files directory. now this is what you do. the button that you want your elf to load on, go to it and next to the equal sign, put mc0:/BADATA-SYSTEM/YOURELFFILENAME.ELF;What you want key launcher to show next to your button assignment. e.g. if you are doing hdloader.elf, after you type ;, this is what will show up after the button assignment, not the whole mco:/. Now this is a very big point. mco:/ must be lowercase, BADATA-SYSTEM/YOURELFFILENAME.ELF MUST BE IN CAPITAL LETERS!!!. the rest can be anything. now this is an example of the end result: AUTO=0 =mc0:/BADATA-SYSTEM/HDA.ELF;HD Advance /\=mc0:/BADATA-SYSTEM/HDLOAD.ELF; HD Loader O= X= R1=mc0:/BADATA-SYSTEM/EXECFTPS.ELF;Exec FTPs R2= R3= L1= L2= L3= After you are done, click save as in notepad, and click save as any file and make sure you OVERWRITE the old KL.DAT. Now this is The BIggest POint of the Whole Exploit!!!!!!!!!!! In the files folder, you should see Keylauncher.ELF. Rename this to BOOT.ELF with CAPITALS REMEMBER!!! This Tells the exploit to Boot key launcher first so you can select what elf to boot. Now go back to mcexploit.rar and select CDGENPS2.exe. Drag the files from the mcexploit.rar directory to cdgenps2 in the following order. the file order is BIG! Start from this file: (note any of these files i did not talk about dont worry they are not inportant to you) CDVD.IRX EXSPINST.ELF SYSTEM.CNF(note this wont have .CNF ON the end so just select SYSTEM DUMMY.DAT Now you need to Drag the Whole file directory to the mix, BUT before yo can do this, you must have all of these files in the right order inside the files folder: KL.DAT BOOT.ELF All of your elf files in any order SYSTEM.CNF( DIfferent from other one) NOW INSTALL THE FILES FOLDER. IF IT GOES TO THE TOP, IT IS NORMAL. NOW RIGHT CLICK SYSTEM.CNF AND CLICK EDIT. CLICK FIX LBA AND TYPE 12231. DONT ASK ME WHY AS I DONT NOT WANT TO EXPLAIN. Now click the img button on the left and it will create a disc image. open any burning software you have and burn away!!! NOw Congradulate yourself, because that was the hardest part. now you can just boot that disc. it will say installing exploit. if you did good, it will say install done!!! Now here is the BIGGEsTTTTTTTTTTT test yet. eject your burnt cd, and insert your psx disc and restart. if done right, your screen will flicker white, and the it will boot keylauncher.( note if you want to play your game, just take the memory card out, the disc will boot regularly, then you can put the memory card back in.
