Accidentally deleted BOOT.elf from mc
Accidentally deleted BOOT.elf from mc –
What is the easiest method to put a working BOOT.elf back on the mc after it was accidentally deleted and the ps2 was powered off?
Before this slip up, I connected to the ps2 via flashfxp using another ip address 192.168.2.5, rather than the default ip 192.168.0.10 since that was being used by my modem.
I have a pressed HDL dvd and I have already installed an image of exectftp.elf onto the hdd. Execftp loads via HDL but I can't connect to the ps2 from pc using flashfxp. I've changed the network protocal settings to 192.168.0.10 on the pc but it still won't connect. Any ideas? TIA
Got everything working. There's got to be a faster way to upgrade BOOT.elfs, 1.5 hours was way too long and frustrating. Can anyone fill me in on the simpler method?
once you have a boot.elf on mc, simply launch it.
say your boot.elf is uLaunchElf...all you need to do is launch it and use the filebrowser to replace the boot.elf you are currently using with a newer one you have on USB, cd, dvd, pc whatever... (yes, you can replace the one you are using b/c you are not permanently accessing it! once it's loaded, the file on mc isn't read...so no need to worry)
that's all, that's it...
it's a second's job
if you delete it by accident and are not currently running it (say you deleted the whole system older using PS2 browser) use the same method but launch ULE off dvd/cd

Thanks MB, but is it possible to launch uLE off of a dvd/cd if I don't have a modded ps2?

it's quick too

Yeah, I don't have either
you have HDLoader? just install this cd onto your HDD (use WinHIIP with the hard drive connected to your PC)... contails uLaunchELF... call it an 'emergency repair partition'
then you can reinstall boot.elf or titleman from a USB thumb drive (or a digital camera in my case) all you like.
it's how i install my exploit from scratch these days, and much easier for me than compiling bootable exploit 'installation discs' which put who knows what onto the memcard.
