I never was a fan of swap trick. Sure it's cool when the system just got released and when there is no mod chip available, but other than that, I prefer a more professional solution. And I don't know if I'm alone to think that swaping must not be really healthy for PS2 motor... Anyway, you are free to use the booting method you want, but a post like that will just be the host for a flame war IMO. The ''I will be laughing when games start comming out with anti-mod protection'' attitude is just my confirmation. But what do I know? I'm just a Canadian
