Hd softmod –
Hi, i've read some guides on this site and on the internet, but being a total noob in ps2 mods i have some questions.
My situation is:
ia have an unmodded ps2 with memory card and some ps1-ps2 original games.
I'd like to run some backups from an external usb hard disk.
I've read about the memory card exploit and some other things.
Now my question is:
is there a way to install the softmod with an unchipped ps2 without having SwapMagic or action replay or anything to write on memory card?
i managed to run ps1 backup swapping the disk 2 times with an original.
Could that be helpful?

thanks for reply, but my problem is exactly how to install it without modchip or action replay or SwapMagic
i was wandering if i could use the simple 2 discs swap trick for ps1
(i have the old "fat" ps2)
If you mean the PS1 Exploit trick, yea you could use that to boot uLaunchELF, then use it to run the FMCB installer off a USB stick.
Heres another way you could try, its a bit of work, but others have had success with it.
SCPH-30001 [V4] - unmodded (2)
SCPH-30001-R [V5] DMS4 Pro SE
SCPH-50001-N [V9] CC 2.0 SLE
SCPH-79001 [V16] Silver - unmodded
i was using the swap trick on my psone, but now i'm thinking that fat ps2 cant do the swap cause the ejecting dvd drive
You can't use the PSX method for swapping on PS2. If you go the swap method then you'll need a slide card, flip top or something.
I don't think there are any softmods that don't write to the memory card, AND you don't have to buy anything. There's a pressed copy of swap magic, doesn't write to the memory card if all you do is boot backups, but costs money. Can't have both at the same time.
I managed to do swaps on my ps2.

for psx exploit you need a Orignial psx not the copy one
i have some ps1 originals.. i can play ps1 backups swapping the cds 2 times. now i only need a mcboot cd to swap and install mcboot
once you have run the Exploit you will be able to install FMCB
