Updating HD Loader w/o modchip?
Updating HD Loader w/o modchip? –
So how would I go about doing this? From some guides that I've been looking through I'd probably need to start with the independance exploit, right? But what then? And how do I set up the hard drive to take saves? I figure that I'm going to need as much space on the Memory Card as I can for this. Anyway any help would be appreciated.
Hmm. I guess I need to revise my questions.
1. How do I update my copy of retail HD Loader?
2. I have no modchip so how do I get this updated version onto my memory card?
3. Is it possible to backup my saves elsewhere, like on the hard drive itself?
Thanks for any help.
1+2)no update of RETAIl...
just install the exploit and run the latest hdl off USB/MC/HDD
since u already have retail hdl, this is gonna be EASY! (even more than usually, I mean)
3)yes, by using uLaunchElf, filebrowser, navigate to save. press R1, the rest u can figure out
(the exploit [I linked you to it above] is based on uLAunchElf, so don't worry about that...if you follow the instructions I linked you to, you'll have everythingyou need)
veritas vos liberabit
Edit: looks like the above post makes it easier for you to do what I just finished describing below! Good post.
Find the general info on how to make a bootable PS2 CD (easy to find here and elsewhere), and make one with Launchelf being the executable. Install your PS2's HDD in your PC and install the launchelf CD image with WinHIIP. Now you should be able to load it with your retail HDL. Once you have the ability to run Launchelf, you have your foot in the door.
With LaunchElf running, now you can use it to copy a patched HDLoader over the network from your PC to your memory card via FTP or through a USB flash drive, along with the files necessary for tripping the exploit with a PS1 game.
I know this is lacking in all the details, but this is the basic procedure and all the how-to's for each step can be found in these forums. Good luck.
For some reason that link won't work for me. Thanks for the help though.
Edit: Link works now. Dunno what the problem was before. Now to try this out.

to save your gamesaves in your HDD you can also use codebreaker 9.2
okay guys, im in a similar situation. got HDA and want to install the latest HDL onto my memorycard, because i have no modchip (and my laser is dieing anyway).
So did i get this right, first i have to start this exploit utility, which is supposed to create an iso-file for me? because you see, it doesnt work, when i start it, it just says "this beta is expired". what exactly does that mean? can i use soemthing else or get the finished iso anywhere? any help would be apreciated...
I just finished updating a guide I made a while ago for installing the exploit and upgrading HDLoader. You can find the guide here.
if you have games installed on the HDD with a retail HDA, and then use the retail HDA to install a patched HDL, will the games still be there or will the HDD be formatted?
the games will remain and play as usual.
