Run app from HDD –
I tried to do this by modifying hdl_dump for some reason it doesnt work..
Using winhex, i scanned the PS2HDD for the playonline boot file, it is as follows:
So, what I did with HDL_Dump was install a image of an ExecFTPs CD, but modifed HDL_Dump to write this header, instead of the standard one that calls for the HDLoader CD:

BTW yes I've even tried \ instead of /, and tried with and without the ";1"
Edit: Based on my findings, kicing back to browser is the result of trying to load a file that doesn't exist (example, say execftps.elf was there but i told it to run bla.elf).
Based on this and other findings, HDL_Dump must install an Image file and not put the files there raw...
I don't know much C but wouldnt we be able to modify the hdl_dump source to be able to put files on the hdd instead of images? if it can write an image, why cant it write a file? All we need to do is be able to write a file and then we can do this...

good work, tho this has been done many moons ago, before hdloader was even a reality.. but see the file must be magic-gate encrypted to boot, your just gonna work yourself to death trying to make it work
so basically a type of digital signing.. hmm.
