Just bought HDLoader –
Hey I bought HDLoader from some internet site and it came yesterday. When i booted it up the splash screen say Free HDLoader and has the ps2ownz url in the bottom. I'm guessing this is the hacked version. It works fine so far on my unmodded v9; so should I try to get my money back or should I just be content. Also whats the diference in this version and the original.
I had the same experience..
But its a pressed cd so it can be read on unmodded consoles!!! Well it this works thats ok , but yeah they sold us a fake!
I would rather buy a Swap Magic which is a more basic thus more useful tool. As for the HDLoader, you can always do a MC exploit to use it or launch from HDD if you want...
hey board newbie here...
i just got my hdloader in from consolesource.com
it says the FREE thing too and ps2ownz.com.. whats the differance from the hacked version and the regular version??
also, i have been reading about people loading up from memcard and ditching the cd, can someone transfer the file from mem to pc via sharkport 2 and some one else load that on there mem card to launch???
I think the hacked version has support for backups, or something like that. But other than the lame splash, I don't think there's much difference
ok i am gonna see if it will load a back up then... brb
nope wont load back ups, i guess you still have to be modded..
the 'ps2ownz' & 'real' hdloader are the same thing. you are kinda getting ripped off though, but they are the same thing.
neither one can install backups unless you have a modded system (slidecard, fliptop, modchip, etc).. the best way to install backups is to hook up the hdd to your PC and install the image or disc to the hdd. its wayyyy faster
if i were you guys i would band together and demand your money back. the "hacked" hdloader is not hacked to give it any new features. Its simple the free release of hdloader that has been floating around the net.
I actually dont suggest that anyone buy hdloader anymore from retail stores. the original stock has been long gone and those that are at retail shops are all various clones.
Doing a quick search on the net and you can easily find hdloader for free and boot it using a mod or the exploit.
The origional "supports" backup install, you just have to swap in the backup at the install screen. FTP'ing may be faster, if you have your comp set right. Alot of people don't have the correct comp support for it though. You can make an exploit disc following the same instructions for making the exploit cd, just install it via hdloader, and have the disc in when you start it from HDL. then have all the fun you want. I got my HDL form consolesource, even when people were saying they didnt come in boxes, or scratched up from floating around in the box. All origional. Even had the manual and a copy of sonys' hdd util disc. I still can't beleive they sell the "free" hdl though. Come on people, how hard is hex editing? Might as well make it "consolesource loader". lol
