Does the HDLOADER.ELF have to be packed when patching CD?
Does it make a difference in packing the HDLOADER.ELF for an HD Loader CD? Does the .ELF have to be packed or is it only useful to pack the .ELF when booting from Memory Card? I just replaced the .ELF file in the ***O*NZ version (which was SLUS_203.44) with my modified .ELF renamed to SLUS_203.44 but left the file uncompressed. I noticed though that between the O*NZ version (which was just a straight burn) compared to the iso I created through NERO with files from the O*NZ version and my modified .ELF that the original O*NZ version (if you could call it that) booted up faster from CD than mine.
Should I have used a different program to create the iso or image to burn or should I have packed the .ELF? Any info would be appreciated. Everything works fine though. Thanks.
