Boot HD Advance w/o CD
Boot HD Advance w/o CD –
Hey I've heard that you can boot HD Advance without the CD by implementing a software or something into the HDD. If you guys know anything about this please tell tell me how its done and what I need.
Is it possible without a modchip?
It doesn't work without modchip if you want to boot hdadvance without CD.
If something sounds too good to be true then it is most likely false..
I don't understand why people use HDAdvance when HDLoader has come so much further in the patch development.
well, how many PS2 owners know forums like this one? how many of them bother doing something 'super technical' in nature?
It is possible without a modchip. You need to use the memory card exploit to install HDloader/advance on your memory card (not your hd)
You will need to use a chipped ps2 or a swap method to install hdloader to your memory card tho.
When people refer to advance they have probably defected from ownz where the use of the term hdloader causes an imediate ban.
Actually, if you use the PS2 independance exploit you can run HDLoader from your HDD..

But how will the PS2 know to start it from the HDD?
need ps1 game –
i just got my apps on my hd yesterday and it works great. but you must use a psone game to trigger the exploit. there is no way around this besides modchips. i boot to keylauncher via exploit and configure the buttons to launch from hdd. i have about 20 apps on the hdd and it's easy to switch the keylauncher configuration if i want.
HD Advance is the only one I can get.

Anyways I like to thank everyone for giving me some info.
u didn't ask regarding MC exploit so I assumed that u already knew it. If you want MC exploit using booting PS1 disk without mod chip then there is plenty of doc about how to do it on this site. so, please, read FAQ and all the wonderful guides..
If you ask me what's the easy way to do MC exploit then I would say 'buy AR MAX drive' or any usb cable involving cheat CD so you would avoid swap method. Once you installed MC exploit you can update the newer version /w patch via FTP.
and about HD installed HDloader thingy.. u can boot to PS Keylauncher in MC using PS1 disk and configure PS Keylauncher to start HDLOADER.elf(or any .elf) in HDD but you still need Keylauncher in MC and PS1 disk to boot. that's how it works.
