fat or slim ps2?
fat or slim ps2?
I am currently using the memory card (official Sony 8MB, black) installed with FMCB on a slimline (SCPH-77001).
(on a fat NTSC PS2, V7 SCPH-39001)
Only thing about doing it with a Gameshark is you have to supply your own storage device. Not a real problem for me, but it does save money in the long run since the disc only costs ~$20.
Video of it working:

Sorry sureok, I never saw your post on that when I was 'researching'. :)
It was a lot of trial-and-error, but most of my info I got off the FMCB install pages over at bootleg.sksapps. They don't cover v1.3, but overall it's pretty similar to what they already have.
I don't remember my install process being that involved...
To make my TITLE.DB, I used an online generator since the titleman frontend wasn't working on my laptop. Next, used the savebuilder to create 'Your System Configuration'. After that, I just had to use the Gameshark disc to transfer the file from USB to the MC. uLE booted on my first try.
that's because I don't own a gameshark for ps2 and haven't in many years due to it's horrible limitations in both codes and application of use.
Since the independence exploit is behind me now, (only keep it as a backup on another memory card) it's all FMCB in my main memory card. :D
I know what you mean. The only reason I actually bought it was for the price. $16 +(tax,gas) was a lot cheaper than paying for Codebreaker or ARMax with shipping and handling.
Same here. I wish Wal-Mart had a better policy on returns though. Now I have to find someone who wants to buy a Gameshark that I used for a mere two minutes.
cheaper by $4. Codebreaker is sold by gamestop for $20. and is much more accepting for booting homebrew.
For some reason the Gamestop here is really creepy. Not to mention their selection usually sucks and the staff is generally very unfriendly. :)
