guide to setting up the hard drive?
guide to setting up the hard drive? –
I've been reading around here and on console exploits and i think i just need someone to point me in the right direction.
Is there anyway to set up the hard drive with a crystal chipped ps2 W/O buying the retail copy of hdloader? What exactly do i need to do? I got hdloader off usenet, but it's only 1mb or so. (seems small to me)
If you are talking about formatting it and creating the partitions so that you can use a normal HDD in a PS2, the way I did it was to hook up the HDD to my PC and use WinHiip to format and everything, then when I put it in the PS2, it was ready to go for HDloader.
well, i've got a fatty ps2 with the original drive and a network adapter. Everthing i've ready on console-exploits always refers to using a retail copy of hdloader. So far i have:
Clean_hdloader from somwhere on this side
hdlgui8b_r2i from somewhere on console-exploits.
I followed a guide on there to update the clean hd_loader with the new patch and now i have a .elf file that i don't know what to do with.
On top of that i also have 13191-god-war2-cant-play-hard-disk-hdl-0.8b-gow2.rar from this site, which extracts to a 100 mb folder with dummyfile.dat, hdloader.elf, and system.cnf. But i dont' know what to do with it.
also i have a 1mb hdloader file of usenet that extracted to a 1.5gb file HDL 0.8 IPS DVD.iso containing dummy.bin, slus_666.66, and system.cnf. But it's 60 days old. (i haven't tried running it in my ps2, i don't even know what it will do lol, but i'm going to do that here in a few minutes)
The end goal is for me to boot off the hard drive instead of the memory card and transfer games over via the network. I'm just totally new to ps2 software.
there is a new HDL-Patch gui ,,God of war 2 fix just search around ..i this way you can create your own hdloader gow2 working ..just follow the Tutorials in console exploit site
let me reiterate: I am a total noob to ps2 software. I don't even understand what's being said on the console expert guides. My hdloader that i dl'ed boots to a menu and asks if i want to copy games to the hard drive just fine. But i have no idea how to make the ps2 boot the crystal chip w/ access to games directly off the hd, instead of the memory card.
Most of the guides end with, "now you've got your modified elf file... have fun"
i don't understand what i'm supposed to do next. I know i could spend the next few days reading, but i don't have that kind of time and was hopping someone could summarize what i need to do as a starting point.
well i will tell you a something about modchip ..but i dont know about crystal chip..
most of modchips have Devolutions like Matrix infinity Crystal and DMS and Modbo (matrix Clone ) means they can boot any elfs direclty from hdd or mc ..
for Matrix Infinity :
Dev2 :boot any elfs from Hdd Directly
Dev1:boot any elfs from MC directly
thats all i can say ..you can post anything about Crystall Chip Section they will help in there
ah, thank you. I know realize that using hdloader to play games off the hdd is not necessarily synonymous with using a mod chip. I've found much more pertinent information on setting up the hd with the chip in the modchip forums.
