To quote: Getting PlayStation 2 Software Emulator working

Method (on Firmware 3.55, without! Cobra-USB Dongle or Downgrade) for all consoles (fat & slim).

1. Replace following files on your consoles /dev_flash/ with the ones included in this archive p3dwik-ps2compatfiles.rar
2. Get into Factory Service Mode (FSM Tool/Dongle)
3. Insert your Original PS2 Game Disc
4. It will run.

Note: Backups won't work. You're getting the compatibility of the 2.60 software emulator with all of its bugs.

A possible compatibility lists:

PS2 Compat. flag

All consoles have hardware information. In GameOS you can call Lv2 Syscall 393 (0x189) sys_sm_get_model to get your consoles information. In Lv1/Hypervisor its in the repository nodes sc 0x5B lv1_get_repository_node with Parameters "sys","hw","config" usually noded as "sys.hw.config#0" or something.

Hi I just make a debug app that use some syscalls to do a reset into PS2 Lpar like boot_ps2 does, it should work on dex 4.11 or 4.20 but in these fw there is ps2 netemu instead of softemu so i need someone with an original disc of playstation 2 inserted on bd-drive and launch this test app and see what happens.

I am on 4.11 DEX but i don't have any original disc from PS2... This is basically the same thing that boot_ps2 does on 3.55 but there is a new emu file on dex 4.11 or 4.20 introduced on 3.70 with the use of PS2 Classics on PSN... This is not brick-risk, thanks to anyone who help me with this. Greetings...





1st - Download the file
2nd - Copy the file PS2 Evo v1.0.pkg to the root of a USB drive formated in FAT32
3rd - Install the .pkg from *Install Package Files*
4th - Insert a original PS2 disk on the BD
5th - Run the app and enjoy

I know many of you haven't heard much from unknown dev but he gave me some huge info here's what he said:

"I did manage to find deank nifty little tool for signing his files that's bin kept very low key. As this is used for signing certain files including as deank uses to sign all his files.

Now I have looked through his programming in mm with ida pro and in cobra usb source which is nothing less than deank work or unknown cobra dev. The stage 2 cobra bin that every1 is having problems with is easy to configure if it is used properly n best not used in windows"

I have no problem running 4.66 multiman with my external hdd. Games have been on there forever.

Remember some games on external require BD-Mirror set.
