Easiest PS2 Mod?
In your opinion what is the easiest/cheapest/most effective way to mod a PS2?
A friend of mine has a phat ps2 and I was looking to get it from him so I could mod it.
I have already done mods on other consoles, xbox1 + unleashx & xbox360 + LT3.0, but never to a sony console.
I know there are many ways of modding a PS2 from chips to disk swapping and game exploits however I would like the ability to play emulators and such on the PS2 and most disk swapping is just used to play backups anyways. I know by using a chip I can pretty much do anything however I usually prefer softmods to a hardware mod because I dont have to buy chips or specific tools and I can leave the original hardware in tact. (although I'm not totally opposed to buying a chip if thats what it takes)
Is there a way that I could modify a PS2 Phat by software alone to play emulators, backups, & potentially other things? (ex. On my xbox1 I use emu's as well as XBMC for video streaming. I dont know if there are PS2 apps that offer similar functionality)
Sorry I dont have specifics on console version, model#, etc.
However once I get in touch with my friend im sure I can get that info.
What I do know about the console: BLACK PS2 Phat
thanks in advance
Soft mod FMCB
SMS is in the newbie pack and it will do vid over DVD USB SMB ;)
I take it once FMCB is installed using the Normal/Multi-Version installer option via one of the many exploits that having the memory card in will automatically boot into FMCB?
So simply removing the memory card stops the softmod from loading and will load the Unmodified PS2 browser?
And it looks like with multi install that this memcard should be able to work on any PS2 console saying that they are all NTSC or does it not work like that?
Thanks for the info, im excited to get started.
however I need to make a stop to my local gamestore first and see if I can find a copy of that ActionReplay Garbage and a PS2 memcard.
all correct and if you use the unofficial with full install you could use that MC on any model ps2 except some 9000x models they don't boot off of MC :D
damn that was fast...... :wow:
Thanks for the reply.
However I dont know what you mean by "use the unofficial" are you talking about using a unofficial memory card like one of the generic memcards with more than 8mb of space?
the unofficial FMCB looks like it mostly fixes bugs with the latest (v1.8) version of FMCB
and it seems ANY CONSOLE also means consoles from other regions, like PAL/NTSC U-J?
Spot on when it is on MC you could take that anywhere in the world with non 90000 model and use it :)
BTW some 90000 models do run it with bios 2.20 that is
try to get swapmagic... its easier to do the install with. all you need is a USB pendrive and no mods or diskswaps.
