I will ask to Neme to confirm that. But I'm pretty sure his bios have disabled osd update...
It's very much possible, after all the new slims won't ever need any HDD or DVD updates i think, so there's no point in having that feature. So looks like it's best to stick with the fat ones for best homebrew experience. :)
If it's true that FMCB won't work on newer PS2 then that's too bad!!! :(
I have a V7 but I think that I'm selling my PSP and buying a Slim < V18 and keep it safe, just in case my FAT dies someday! :(
Bad bad $ony, no cookies for you! :mad:
Now it would be cool to know if new standard ps2 will hold the same v230 bios as the lego batman bundle... I guess yes, but maybe we can be lucky.
Just tryed to use FMCB on my SCPH-90001 (from batman bundle) and FMCB do nothing at all. It seem to install fine but I don't see anything on boot, I tough that my modbo 4.0 could be the problem but look like I'm not the only one in this situation :S
I'm having the same exact problem and I actually started a thread a few days ago about it, but I wasn't able to boot any homebrew even with codebreaker (incompatible usb device? [psp-2000]):
anyway, my 2 cents is this: the new consoles that are separate from the batman bundle have the same exact serial number, I can confirm this, as for the bios of those systems, I can't say, but I would assume they'd be the same exact thing as they both just came out a few months ago in the 'states.
Damn... I just bought this thing to put FMCB on it.. I hope we can get this working, let me know if I can do anything to help.
Damn it! :mad:
It really looks like $ony killed FMCB for good on newest PS2 models. I gotta run to the stores and I hope to find an exploitable version!
Best would be a way to confirm that.
Maybe a few BIOS-Dumps (from...) and pictures, of different disassembled 90ks.
Here the bios from mine if this can help.
