Although I sincerely appreciate your efforts to help me on this issue, I'm afraid this method still does not allow me to go past the black screen.
I guess my console is just too old to do to the trick, as I am certain it's anywhere from v1-v3, and the guide calls for AT LEAST v9. Ironic to me that the newer models are more hackable than the older ones, lol.
Oh well.. :-/
Again, thank you for all your support.

It's all right. I've decided to buy a fat Japanese PS2 instead, but at least I've learned a lot of about softmodding the one I have now. I've been backing up every game I currently own in order to preserve the laser, and so far, so good (with DDR giving me problems AGAIN...WTH?). That's all I was really after from the start.
My next issue involves getting ACTION REPLAY MAX to work with games installed on my HDD, but I suppose I'd better ask and questions regarding that in another thread. Thank you very much.
