Don't try too hard! –
I wouldn't try too hard on this. I tried once renaming the main exe of an ps1 game and it didn't like it. The game didn't load.
Maybe it works for some games to rename the main exe, but i wouldn't count on that and renaming any other files would give problems. The main programm would search for the files which are supposed to be there but couldn't find them cuz there were renamed.
If you want to test try to load the modified images first on an psx emulator like epsxe. If it works on the emulator you have a 50% chance that it works on original hardware or ps2.
My Personal advice try the ps1 cheat device "xploder cd 9000" (name may vary depending on your country) for swapping.
It works on original ps1 hardware and v12+ ps2 hardware.
I have no access to an v7 phat ps2 so i can't try this. maybe someone who has this disc for ps1 and the v7 ps2 could try this.
As always is hotswapping at your own risk. so think twice if it's really worth it.
