Youīre mixing the facts.

The person which this PS2 belongs to, is my personal proof that this PS2 was never opened before and I did this Swap in front of his eyes.
It maybe worked out 1 of 5 times, but it worked (which still surprises me, based on the current knowledge we/I have about how the stuff works...).
If I remember correctly, I pressed the EJECT-Button shortly before the PS1-Logo appears and I didnīt even leave the tray 100%time to come out, until I swapped (and with "swapped" I mean ejected and replaced...) the disc.
The tray was closed (or on itīs way to be closed), when the Logo (start to) appear[s].
And the game, which was FF7 started,...
The original disc wasnīt even FF7, so I believe all discs would work.
Well,... The only method which is prooven (yet) is the standard-swap-method.
Sorry, I've read this particular thread the whole way through about 5 times and i can't get any of the techniques from any of the posters to work.
Iīm not sure, if the Board-Revision chanches anything in this case for the method Iīve described.
I have a model no. sch-50001 ps2 which is either a v9 or a v10 (I can't find the date info that's supposed to distinguish the two; but all of the techniques are for v9+, so it shouldn't matter in this case).
It's only softmodded with fmcb 1.8 and the other elfs from the 1.8 noobie package on sksapps
The Method I described with PSX-Launcher back then, was based on the assumption that this will work also this way.
Specfically, I've tried TnA's method of using psx-launcher and jnabk's swap at uLe then running ps2 browser (I just noticed his method doesn't explicitly say "eject button" anywhere, that might explain that). Neither of them worked for me.
It does not, but I still donīt know why it works the way on this PS2, if you make a "timed swap", through original PS1-Disc startup.
The uLE-Method of course should work, if the disc is "swapped" the "Swap-Magic"-Way.
Hm,... Here you are.
Sorry to bump such an old thread but I'd really appreciate if someone who understood the whole thread could explain the outcome to me.
But I simply canīt explain, why this works.
...and it does work.
If Iīd have a video-camera and the BA/LA of this console is/were fixed (his dad wanted to make a Romeo-Fix and sucked...), I would make a video for proof.
