I must say I don't quite follow that logic considering that if you want to run any homebrew app, you have to do something illegal with your console anyways (mod it so that you can boot CDRs, which homebrew devs don't seem to have problem with supporting) Not that I'm complaining, but I honestly don't quite understand the difference.
this has been asked millions of times over. HDLoader is warez and no homebrew developer is going to add support for a warez app. Get over it already!
Yes, I have tried putting the game CD in the drive as well (an original CD at that) It didn't work, just as I described above.
as for the cds. you should have the original cds if you plan on running this emulator in the first place so it wont hurt you to put it in your cdrom tray and run it.
Oh, that sounds good! I'll look around for the dev version, then
However if you have a look at the forum, you will see that there is actually two builds of the emu : 0.02a (which is the let's say official build, and look ONLY on the cdrom to load a game) and the 0.02a dev build (that allows to run a game from where the elf is loaded and search for it under the cd folder), so you should better have a look at that version.
well, If it's what you think you're wrong, legitimated way of booting homebrew apps exist, just make some google, then if you think that homebrew dev is anyway warez software you are also wrong and didn't get the philosophy of the homebrew dev community.

Even on the PS2dev.org they mention at many places that in order to run software like pukklink or naplink, you need a 'console capable of booting the CDRs'. I am not aware that there is a 100% legal way to boot CDRs on the PS2. Much in the same way, I know that HDLoader is not 100% legal, but I choose to use it for legal purposes (running homebrew apps and faster game loading). I just don't see how is HDLoader 'more' illegal than any of the methods for booting CDRs which always seem to be necessary to run any homebrew app :\
Last word, how you boot my elf is not my concern, you can use whatever you want legal or illegal.
anyway you sould know that there are working methods to boot homebrew elf on the ps2 without requiring to open your console for i.e. http://ps2dev.org/kb.x?T=1069. Sony is maybe not endorsing it, but it's not declared as illegal.
simply don't ask for support on illegal stuff, like hdloader.
