That is right.

Are there plans to support the HDD to boot ELFs off too?

Another thing is, that we can´t get rid of the pre-encrypted KELFs to create our OSD-Upgrade.
We can´t vary the file-size.
Maybe the time will come.
Back to HD-Support.
I think it is possible to integrate HD-Support, but:
-it will need external HD-Drivers, to match the 75KB-DVDELF/DVDPLx (<-- *1)
-add support for an external OSDMOD.ELF and rip the embedded OSD-Hack to a few standard-features.
-it will need an option, to turn the HD-Support on/off.
Else it will have the HD turned on ever (because of the current structure where FMCB checks if an ELF is present, it must turn on the HD before it even executes the hacked OSD).
(*1: pre-encrypted dvdplayer, every PS2 has in its ROM... It differs in size from region and version. The 75KB-DVDPLxs are those pre-encrypted DVD-Player-Files from Slimline-PS2s.)
