Please Help Me Im Going Crazy
Please Help Me Im Going Crazy –
I really really would like some help.
I have a crystal chip 2 pro and would like to do the following but need step by step instructions please:
1/. Put hd loader on my usb memory stick and run it from there.
2/. Put ulaunchelf on my usb memory stick and run it from there.
I would also like to know how to transfer elf files to the ps2 memory card through the cc2 pro?
I have had a look at the wiki but am confused.
With hd loader i have clean hd loader and ran it through hd loader gui and applied the patches.
With ulaunchelf i have v4.11.
Can i just put each of the above elf files with appinfo and launchelf in seperate folders and put it on my usb memory stick?
Do i have to modifiy the appinfo to run the files from usb?
If so can someone please post what to modifiy or add.
Anyone's help is muchly appreciated.
If you read the wiki, you really should know how to do this. Specialy this page :
But I admit that there is something a little confusing, it's the notion of installing. In fact, when you install an APP from a device to another, all BM do is to copy the APP folder from the device to the other. There is nothing more.
Secondly, you really should start by downloading the Mega Pack for your firmware. If you've upgraded to firmware 34, it won't be up to date. So I suggest you to download the Essential Pack (in this forum) which I updated yesterday.
So, you can easily install applications from the Mega Pack CD (or ESSENTIAL PACK) to a USB key by hand from your PC : Just copy the BM folder from the Pack to your USB Key. Trash all the APP you don't want, and add your ELF for HDLOADER (Be carrefull to name it like the APPINFO.PBT expect it, open it with a text editor to check).
Now, plug your USB key in the PS 2 and run your APPs from it.
Ok so on my usb memory stick i have :
bm > Apps > Hdloader > appinfo + hdloader.
> Ulaunch > appinfo + lauchelf (speeddial) + ulelf.elf
When i go to the application browser i choose run then i choose usb hdd then i can see ulaunchelf but when i select it it just flashes and does nothing.
Also i cant see hd loader.
Ok i got ulaunch to work but cant get hd loader to load directly from usb memory.
Can someone please please help me.
I know it might be that i have to change the appinfo but to what?
Also i have a problem transfering hd loader and ulaunchelf to my ps2 memory card.
I went to application browser chose either file then clicked install and picked the memory card.
It then said failed installing....
All i want to be able to do is run both hd loader and ulaunchelf by going to application browser and then chosing either from memory card.
This would be so easy for my kids to do.
Maybe i have to formatt my memory card?
Thanks again everyone for all your help.

Sorry, I'm not in front of my PS2 right now so I can't tell you if my script works from USB or not for HDL.
But I'm sure it works from MC (this is the one I use), so you just have to copy it to MC. But, you have to check that you have enough free space to do this. Perhaps you could erase a savegame or two, or transfer a couple of saves on the USB using ULE with the PSUPast option.
Tried copying hd loader elf and ulaunch elf to memory card but keep getting failed installing.
Have cleared game saves.
I transfered the above files using ulaunchelf with psupaste to memory card BUT when i go to application browser and choose run the memory card i cant see the files at all.
Im lost as to what to do now.
Can someone please give me some more ideas.

Sorry, I wasn't clear, but the PsuPast is for game saves only ! Not for installing apps
For that, simply use copy and past.
Tried that also but didnt work.
I tried another memory card thinking the first might have a problem but i still get the error "failed installing".
Any other ideas m8?
Im using the latest ulaunchelf v4.11.
Well, there's probably one of two things wrong! Either not enough space on the MC's or something wrong with your install script files(PBT files). Make sure that your scripts look like the below contents for both ULE & SMS:

This is what the scripts look like for the latest firmware release(34). I've read there is still problems with the last script lines so you might wanna just use the "Shutdown MM" script instead! Thanks!
Thanks again for your help.
I finally got it to work but it was alot of mucking around.
I really appreciate your help else i would have gone crazy.
