PS2 Official HDD tools on PAL.
I have been researching for some time how to get the official ps2 tools to Pal territory.So far this this what I have found out:
-If you do not have a Auto ATAD patching Mod,forget it.Even in NTCS machines by patching the CD it does not work.It may boot but on reset all the changes will be reverted
-It is MAGIC GATE encrypted so it is extremely difficult(if not impossible) to crack.
-It does not rely on the machine ID to Install but on some chip on the motherboard(I think it is called the machacon chip)
-The Ps2 Browser Enhancements are stored in a special Hidden Partition that the original HDD Protects by firmware and cannot be extracted.
My idea lies in a way of bypassing the final statement.What if we use an unofficial HDD in a NTCS machine (with ATAD modchip offcourse) and after the installation Ghost it (or any other cloning soft,WinIHIIP maybe?)???????
Has anyone tried it?The test is simple.Install ,Put the HDD in a PAL ps2 and see if it works.If it does then let us know.
P.S:I am not sure if this topic is forbidden since it is about an official code.If it violates any rules delete it.(I did not do it deliberately).
Keep up the good work...
