JAP slim SCPH-90006, no datacode - will FMCB work?
Hi everyone, first post here :-)
I have a Japanese PS2 slim which can obviously only play JAP games. Now since I have a very nice collection of PAL games, and I would like to use the JAP slim as my primary system (very sweet color), I will need to find a way to play other region games on that system. I don't want to do a hardware mod since I don't like taking my systems apart, and I don't want to swap discs everytime I want to play a game either.
Someone recommended Free McBoot for me, so after reading through it I think I require this:
- Someone with a Japanese PS2 who can do a Multi-Version intall of FMCB on my memory card.
One thing is still confusing: It says in the FAQ
"For SCPH-9000xx PS2 with a datacode of 8B and earlier will work. Datecode of 8C, the bios must be version 220, not 230."
My JAP one has SCPH-90006, and I searched it for a datacode - there is none.
Does anyone know what this means? Should I just try it or is there a risk of bricking my system?
It is so annoying that I cannot just play my PAL games on the JAP system. Stupid region locks.
Anyway, I would greatly appreciate if someone could answer my questions, and then hope that someone is able to create a JAP Multi-Version card for me.
