Ok, I used this tool to customize the text, but it wouldn't change my images. So I ended up using BMPINTOELF in DOS mode and done it manually. After that I loaded the ELF with PS2Menu-K and it worked great. My text was perfect, my new graphics looked good, etc.
Then I tried to use my new custom ELF with the modified BOOT.ELF from Ownz (which I have done before with HDL.ELF by simply renaming it to HDA.ELF and compiling them into an X-Port save file exploit) but it fails to load. I just get a black screen. I even tried my original HDL.ELF again with the BOOT.ELF and it still works, but just not my custom ELF. Anyone know why? :banghead:
Ok, I figured out how to get it to work. First of all, the only thing I could get this program to do CORRECTLY was change the text in HDLoader. But a long story short, I took the CustomHDLoader.ELF that HdlCngV6 created (428KB), used ps2-unpacker to unpack the file (2908KB), then ps2-packer to repack it again (506KB). Now it works with the modified BOOT.ELF exploit. :headbang:
So in other words, nice tool, but it needs some more work. :cheers:
BTW - If anyone wants me to compile a guide with pics on how to do all of this to have a customized HDLoader/HDAdvance that direct-boots using an X-Port save file, let me know. Otherwise I'm not going to do it for nothing. :badpc:
