3 questions about booting elf files
3 questions about booting elf files –
Please help me out if you can. I'd really appreciate a break from searching endlessly for posts about this.
1. How do I get Launchelf on my hard drive? I figured that I'd like to have ulaunchelf boot from there cause I just don't wanna risk losing all the work of getting this thing running on my memory card one day. And since I can apparently do it with my DMS3 chip, then why not, right?
2. What do I do to my harddrive to make sure it can read elfs? I heard something about partitioning? How do I do that? With what program?
3. Given that the above things can be done, what is the newest and most stable release of ulaunchelf?
You must first be able to get the exploit to work on your machine first (I won't tell you how, so you'll have to search). The method I describe is for running ulaunchelf from hdd, but you still need to boot an elf launcher to boot it so in a sense it's roundabout and useless. I'll leave it up to you, but DO NOT read on if you don't want to do it.
1. Format your hdd in your computer with WinHiip and create your own custom partition (128 mb is plenty for every ps2 apps we have to date)
2. Run uLaunchELF as your boot file, then copy the elf file and its cnf file to your custom partition on the hdd.
3. Set up another elf launcher on your computer to replace ulaunchelf (Ps2 Keylauncher, BootAdvance, Ps2menu). Make sure the directory of your ulaunchelf is at hdd0:+(whatevernameyouwant)/ULAUNCHELF.ELF, and assign a key to boot it.
4. Save the files to a usb stick. Boot the exploit to ulaunchelf again and replace ulaunchelf in BADATA-SYSTEM folder on mc0 with your new boot launcher.
5. Reboot the system, your new boot launcher will be used. Hit the assigned button and boot uLaunchELF.
It's really pointless to do it this way, and I'm not sure your DMS3 chip can read elf file from a partition. I pretty sure you can only boot elf files from the flash memory on the chip.
