Swap Magic 3 ver3.3 properly runs from HDLoader
Swap Magic 3 ver3.3 properly runs from HDLoader –
That's right, you heard it here.
Before I go any further I'd like to state that Teclis had no hand in this, and I hope working with him previously hasn't tarnished my reputation or image as a member here...also (<G>, if you're listening) I'd like to second having Teclis banned.
What you need to do it:
-FAPLink or similar (for DVDRiPs--more on this later).
-Copy of Swap Magic 3 ver3.3 CD version (that's the latest build, folks, not to be confused with the Piece of shit that is 3.2).
How to do it:
-Pop in your CD version into your computer and copy the modules folder, SLUS and the SYSTEM.CNF (you shouldn't have any problem directly copying these files from the disc)--leave the dummy files.
-Download dummyfile (available at the bottom) and create a 620, 700, 800, or 900MB (700, 800, and 900MB for FAPlink or HDtransfer programs only) dummy and rename it to the dummy contained in the CD version.
-Download CDGENPS2 (available at the bottom) and compile an ISO or BIN image out of the Swap Magic files.
-Burn or transfer the image to your HDD (if you transfer the image using a transfer program, make sure it's set as CD transfer)
For CD imports & backups:
-Fire up HDLoader however you boot it (be it exploit or other), swap in your disc and either use normal or special boot method.
-Depending on the size of the Dummy file you used when making your image, you can boot DVDRiPs up to 920 MB (I'm sure you could go up to a gigabyte, but to my knowledge there aren't any DVDRiPs bigger than 900MB) simply by booting Swap Magic from HDLoader and swapping in your disc.
For DVD backups/imports:
-Boot Swap Magic inside of HDLoader and hit the eject button. Insert a high ToC DVD and wait for it to refresh, then swap in your DVD backup and USE SPECIAL BOOT.
Enjoy, guys. : )

Hey, at least I don't pretend to know something about programming and make up bullshit. I do what I can with what I know, and you known what? I think that's GOOD ENOUGH for others...and <G>, I'll agree his bullshit is pretty cunning; he almost had me bought. BAN HIM.

I'm as baffled as you are, but trust me: it works. Not only does it boot but it will run the swapped-in disc.
gonna check it out, if i got hand on it...
please don't ask for files....i won't supply them.
why bother? why not just use CDLoader or CogSwap?
firstly, it's on HDLoader, so convenient for travel, and secondly, you can directly swap in DVDRiPs without the need for Breakerpro
will your method be able to play backups even if a person doesnt have a modchip installed??
