    Placed an in order in March and received it in April. taking into consideration covid-19 is destroying the world and most likely slowed down the delivery process.
    Emailed the team and got a reply so all good.

    Posted by Seth on 5th May 2018

    The mcboot memory card is very easy to use. Much easier than I though. It does everything I have wanted it to do and was a good price.

  3. The best thing I ever bought for my PS2

    Posted by Larry on 1st Jun 2015

    Completely plug and play, just plug in the memory card and then you're set to go. I use it for the HD Advance to play my PS2 games from my hard drive. But even if you don't want to do that, you can use it for ps2 import or backup games, and even PSOne games on the ps2.

FreeMCBoot is one of the most tried and tested softmod methods you can find. Once you have a memory card that is FMCB‘ed, the PS2 will detect it on the Memory Card and boot it up. This guide will show you how to create a Memory Card capable with FMCB capabilities, as well as explaining how it will work. An exploited memory card will work on all versions of the PS2.

This softmod requires access to a console has already been modded, which will be used to transfer the mod data to the Memory Card.

Back up the Memory Card you wish to install FreeMCBoot on. If something goes wrong during install, you could potentially lose your game saves.

You must have either of these:

  • A hardmodded PS2 console (had a chip installed to give it modded abilities).
  • An original (Fat) PS2 with FreeHDBoot softmod installed on it.
  • An already existing, working FreeMCBoot Memory Card.

You also need:

  • A computer (operating system does not matter).
  • A USB removable storage drive (512MB or more).
  • An 8mb Memory Card (official 8mb is preferable, third party is a risk).

You also need the following software (all free):

  • FreeMCBoot (original).
  • uLaunchELF or other ELF launcher (supplied by existing mod).
Card

The FreeMCBot package comes with a file that ends with .ELF. ELF file are executable by a modified PlayStation system, and in the package provided comes with a FreeMCBoot installer. Unfortunately, that’s why you need a pre-modded console.

FreeMCBoot Installer

Firstly, download the files above and place them on a FAT/FAT32 formatted memory stick. Extract the entire zip archive onto the memory stick, as all the files in the zip archive are required for the console to be able to open it. Safely eject the memory stick from your machine to ensure the files are correctly written to the memory stick, and then transfer it to the PS2.

Boot up the PS2 and open up uLaunchELF. Navigate to MASS:/ to access the memory stick we have plugged in. The memory stick should show up similar to above (files beginning with a dot is junk from my mac, which may not be there for you – which is fine). If so, launch up FMCBInstaller.elf.

The launcher will display the FreeMCBoot Installer, a multi-purpose tool which will allow you to prep a memory card for FreeMCBoot, as well as install FreeHDBoot to a hard drive and various other memory card related functions. For the purposes of preparing FreeMCBoot for another console, we will need Multi-install.

The FMCB installer will warn you about the multi-installation process. So long as you backed up your Memory Card, this should be okay. The warning is that the filesystem needs to be modified to allow all systems to be able to read the FreeMCBoot exploit, which is obviously not a designed function for the Memory Card. If something goes wrong during install, your Memory Card could become corrupted. FMCB Installer can revive the Memory Card, but your save data will be lost. If you back up your saves, you will be fine. If you do not back up, beware.

The system will then ask you what memory card you will like exploited. If only one is present in the Memory Card slots, it will automatically detect it. Select OK and the FMCB Installer will proceed to exploiting your Memory Card with FreeMCBoot.

Once the installation is complete, you can safely exit out of the installer. Once the console drops back to the browse menu, turn it off and plug your newly exploited memory card into your non-exploited console.

FreeMCBoot

When you boot your PS2 up with the FreeMCBoot memory card inserted, you will find the boot sequence will not execute. Also, instead of just ‘Browser’ and ‘System Configuration’, you should now have a lot more options available. If so, congratulations you have successfully softmodded your console!

If you have opted for a multi-install as instructed in this guide, then the memory card can be used to execute the FreeMCBoot on any console that is not the latest release of the slimline console (SCPH-9000x). This means that combined with the memory stick (unless you copy your FMCB Installer files to your memory card via uLaunchELF), you can potentially install this on your friends’ consoles, and then everyone can benefit from the world of softmodding.

FreeMCBoot without Pre-modded Console

For those new to the scene, it’s a pretty tall ask to already have a modded console. If you are unable to go through the FreeHDBoot method which can be done without one, then your next course of action is to purchase a FreeMCBoot memory card.
