Upgrade your firmware the easy way !
Yes, you can upgrade the firmware and BM from your already installed BM, without burning any CD or booting on ps2client. Here is how it works :
- Prepare your new firmware files in your USB key or your ps2client
- Start your console as usual
- Go into the firmware manager menu
- upgrade firmware, from USB or ps2client
- Go into application manager, and install Boot Manager as you would install any application
You're done ! I really think this is the fastest and easiest way to upgrade the firmware and Boot Manager !
It should work from 3x to 33 and up.
If everything I said is Chinese for you, here is a step by step.
For network upgrade, the first step is to read what Jones said in the wiki. So, please read carefully and get the tools (PS2Client_for_CC_Network_Installation.zip) before going further.
The only difference between the wiki and what I propose here is that I don't boot on the firmware files using ps2link. So, here is my step by step method.
1. Start Boot Manager
2. Check the IP address of your PS 2 and your PC. They have to match the same network (ie. PS2 : 192.168.0.10, PC : 192.168.0.1)
3. Start Network and PC Host in configuration of BM
4. On the PC, put the files you've downloaded from the wiki into the firmware directory where you have the BM folder. Be sure the firmware is prepared first (you should have the firmware files next to the LATEST folder in the FWS folder). If it's not, launch makeit.bat.
5. Edit your listen.bat to match your PS 2 IP address.
6. Start listen.bat.
7. In BM, in the firmware manager, upgrade the firmware from host
8. In BM, go to Application manager and install BM from host
1. Prepare your firmware by launching makeit.bat if there is only a LATEST folder in the FWS folder
2. Put the BM folder on your USB Key
3. Start Boot Manager
4. Upgrade your firmware from USB from the firmware manager
5. Install BM from USB from the Application manager
I hope it's clear for everyone now. If it's not, ask again for some details on some points you didn't understand.
