To be pedantic for others who may read this thread (not the OP since their date code is 2B), any SCPH-9000x slims with a date code of 2008A and earlier are compatible with FMCB, and some 8B ones may be (if they happen to have BIOS 2.20). Any date codes that start with 9, 0, 1, or 2 will not boot FMCB directly, although it is possible to launch the hacked OSD with another homebrew launching method such as SwapMagic+uLE-on-USB. In fact, for users with BIOS 2.30, that is the method I would recommend. You're not actually going to be swapping discs in the way that Swap Magic intends, so no need to replace the cover or do any sensor-blocking mods. You'll be using Swap Magic to directly boot uLE from a USB drive, from which you can then launch any homebrew that works with FMCB, including OPL, GSM, the various emulators, etc. The only time you'll need to remove the Swap Magic disc is if you want to boot an ESR-patched DVD. It won't even matter which Swap Magic disc you use, so you can put one of them up and only use the other one to save on wear (and have a backup method of booting homebrew without having to spend any additional money). At this point, the only real utility in launching the hacked OSD is simply to show it off to others, as it'll just be faster to directly launch all your homebrew from uLE.
