V112a ICE and Exploit problem (maybe) :)
First - BIG thanks to the ICE team, I've been following their work since the start, and without it I wouldn't have had so much fun homebrewing chips for my PS2 - I get more fun out of modding than playing :)
Now, I have my silver PS2 V9 here with ICE 112a - Works just fine, and I can run the exploit either by Pressing reset long + short tap with a PSX disk or by just holding reset down long - Very impressive!
I followed the tut posted elsewhere on this site and have PS2 keylauncher installed on my card along with execftp and HDLR_SVR - They work fine. So I thought 'Lets try HDloader'...But unless I boot using a PSX disk the HDloader elf just gets stuck on its splash screen. Now I have searched around and people say that its not possible to boot HDL without a disk, but people also say that a certain 'other' chip can do this.
So Im just asking if ICE will boot HDL without a PSX disk? If it should, what could I be doing wrong?
Many thanks, and keep up the good work guys! :)
