I have chipped SCPH-77008 Slim PS2
I need to do a FMCB for SCPH-50004
Is it possible? If so - how?
You can't do the FMCB install on the 77008 and then use it on the 50004,

That is correct in the sense that an FMCB install made on a 77008 will not boot on a 50004 console.

And then uLaunchELF can be used to start the FMCB installer on the 50004, from a USB drive holding the FMCB installation package.
This should be a much simpler method to get started with FMCB on that console, than having to deal with the unpleasant and tricky disc swap methods that many others have to use.
