Looks like there's a difference in the boot ROM of the SCPH-70000 series (boot ROM v2.00). When FMCB is started, the IOP contains NCDVDMAN... which has a number of functions replaced with dummy functions (Who knows why Sony did that...?).

(And in that case, I hope that the both of you would be willing to help me with some small beta-tests... again)
Thank you for the report!
