Help with re-installing MCboot (No DVD Drive)
Help with re-installing MCboot (No DVD Drive) –
Hello people , im having a constant issue with MCBoot and my 64mb Memory card
Recently i`ve been using OpenPS2Loader to launch security copies from my HDD
Everytime i finish playing when i try to reset or put my console to sleep the game just freezes like the console
I normally didt have any trouble up until now , i just finished playing GTA San Andres , "turn of my console" first trying by the main reset button , the game freezes and then i just used the Main power button to turn the console off
Now about 20mins later i want to play again and i found myself with a corrupted memory card, this certainly represents a trouble for me , as i cant install FreeMCboot through the DVD Drive because its broken (discs wont spin)
And dont have anyone near me with a working PS2 to help me out.
Is there any other method of installing MCboot? Like using a USB Pendrive?
Thanks in advance
try to rename the uLE to RESCUE.ELF and put it in your usb drive and start the PS2 with FMCB Memory card inserted and see if you are gonna get uLE(uLaunchELF) Screen .
Trying that , i`ll post the results
Ummm , im still a little green on this , can you tell me which file i have to rename to RESCUE . ELF?
, If you are able to get this to work. You ought to get an official Sony Memory Card (8 MB) and install Free McBoot on it, this way it can be your backup for a disaster like this. I have over 4 memory cards that I have it installed in case one dies on me.
It's always a gamble when using non-official Sony Memory cards like those 16MB to 64MBs--been burned by them many times.
- If all fails, you will have to ask someone to make one for you. See the Installation of Free McBoot thread in our site.
- Or get that USB to MC adapter (sticky topic in the FreeMcBoot section). With this USB adapter you can install FreeMcBoot from your PC.
- Or buy one already pre-installed online (use Google).
The uLaunch.ELF file is usually found on your PS2 in the following directories and named as "BOOT.ELF" :
I usually keep BOOT.ELF on my USB drive and the memory card.
, I didn't even know about RESCUE.ELF, what does that do?
Nevermind, I think I found how it works.. see quote below:
