I have read scores of tutorials, guides from loads of sites, this being the best , and wondered if anyone could help?
I have managed to install the softmod 'Independence Day' MC Exploit on my unmodded PAL PS2 (SCPH-50003), using my friends chipped/modded PS2 to install .bin from CD. My Official Sony 8MB MC now boots 'KeyLauncher' when inserting my Playstation 1 game (Muppet Adventure).
I have formatted a USB stick (1GB) and installed the USBAdvance.ELF - which appears to work fine.
My problem is that no other *.ELF seems to work - either from MC or USB Stick i.e. uLauncher Ver 4.30.
Example: I have installed the FMCB 1.8b (noob package) by copying the FREE_MCBOOT.ELF and 'INSTALL' folder to the root of my USB Stick and assigned a controller button to it using 'KeyLauncher' (Pressing START, and selecting USB and corresponding .ELF etc.). Now when I select the FMCB using the 'KeyLauncher' application, it shows "loading from Usb ..." on screen, the screen goes black and nothing else happens.
So - what am I doing wrong (or do I have the wrong concept - in that I should be able to run the FMCB and install it on another MC for use in a 'softmod' (Independence Day) only environment) .... any help / guidance would be really appreciated.
Thanks in advance... Gwar
P.S. Ideally I would like to create my own FMCB MC without sending it off - but as a last resort, I will undoubtedly gain an experts helping hand .
