Hi folks. Am a new member that registered with this account on the boards not too long ago, seeking help in softmodding his PS2 While indeed i am a total noob to this PS2 hacking thing as I've never dealt with a sony console before (save for the PSP) I've done some research on the internet scouring the forums for an regarding freeMCboot ps2 backups, homebrews, mods and stuff of that manner, and I've gained some insight about them. Having said that though, some things were a bit misleading. I know that it is a long process of trial and error when it comes to the 90K models with the majority of them not supporting FMCB whilst some lucky ones do depending on the data code and such. Now to get to the main part. My PS2 is a stock SCPH-90004 PAL machine that has been bought circa 2008 and given to me by a friend of mine recently. The problem lies that the sticker underneath the console js torn and scraped off so unfortunately i can't provide you on any more information save for this screenshot that I took at the PS2s home menu. I know none of that string of texts will give me a valid answer determining the current bios of my system whether It's on 2.30 or lower. Another issue that i have to face is that i lack the prerequisite hardware/tools necessary to even get the freeMCB exploit menu to show up. and if it doesn't help even more i have no modchip put in it either. Have nothing against spending some cash for a pre-flashed memory card with freeMCB, or a swapmagic codebreaker AR and whatnot else but none of them will ship to where i live.. kinds frustrating heh. I do own a handful of games if these perhaps help in running any exploit by any means. Here's the list of games that i own. Ratchet Gladiator Rayman Revolution Rayman 3 Over The Hedge Mafia Ice Age 2: The meltdown God Of War God Of War 2 Shadow The Hedgehog Asterix & Obelix XXL 2 Mission: Las Vegum Lara Croft Tom Raider The Angel of Darkness Arthur and the Minimoys Crash Tag Team Racing XS SPEED Extreme Iron Man The Official Video Game Spartan Total Warrior Spongebob Squarepants The Movie All of those games are PAL region by the way and work. Is there any exploit that i can take advantage of by ripping an iso off the disks modifying the elf files or something like that trick. My end goal is to softmod it so i can play some NES/SNES/GBA games on my old CRT Samsung TV. game backups are cool but not what i mainly intend to play on it. So is there any way of running homebrew apps and uLauchELF without a modchip/swapmagic ar max or code breaker. ?
