Exploit Problem –
Ok, I've made some cd's with the exploit loader on them and am using the time swap trick to get the disk's to be recognized. The problem I'm having is that it will read the disk and load up to the screen that displays "Playstation SCEA" the scea is under the playstation image and I can tell it is not the image from the disk I use to start the swap trick cause it is located lower on the screen than the retail psx game. Anyways it pops up saying playstation and then just stops there and never gets to the screen that looks like this http://www.maxconsole.com/hdloader%2...l_files/17.jpg So my question is if I am actually making good disc's or is it that through the 4 different versions of the exploit installer, none of them work?

well if its getting to the istallation screen its a good burn maybe bad instation files im me if you need the file look near post number for links to im names
you can get Exploit Compiler (in page 2 of this forum) and it will make compliant directory structures for independence exploit installer
Oh, and I've used Exploit Compiler and other tools like it, none of them help get me past this point.
Maybe these suggestions will help:
when you made your exploit disc, did you make sure it was big enough? (change the LBA of the SYSTEM.CNF file) The PS2 has trouble reading discs that are smaller than 30 megs or so.
Delete your system configuration file on your PS2 memory card and try to install the exploit again.
Well, I just wiped my mem card of everything and tried and it didn't help any, it still stopped at that screen. As for the having 100+meg disk's I've made some without the dummy file and some with. All of them boot to that point then just stop going anywhere, but the even though it isn't going any farther when I take the disk out without using the eject button the laser keeps bobing up and down like it's looking for something and it'll do that till I shut it off. So, any other suggestions. If you have a working iso image of an exploit disk you can send me a copy at firstname.lastname@example.org, but even then I think it'll lock at that point, I'm starting to think my PS2 might have been some sort of *fixed* exploit preventing system.
So, I guess no one else has a clue what might be going on. Well, thanks for the help. I guess I'll start trying to borrow my friends ps2's and try the exploit on their systems.
I s your machine PAL or NTSC, and also do you have the correct PAL or NTSC exploit files? It does make a difference!!
what discs do you swap with? it has to be a ps2 disc not a psx one because the expolit installer is ps2 code
