FMCB Free Mcboot
Install FMCB with HD Loader/HD Advance retail disc
Written by JNABK

You can use your retail copy of HDL / HDA to install Free McBoot  by using uLaunchELF and  a USB device.


On the PC:

1 - Download the uLaunchELF ISO and extract the ISO file to your desktop. Download Winhiip if you dont have it already and use Winhiip (or whatever other way you know to do) to install the ISO to the HDD connected to your PC. Heres a Winhiip Guide if your not sure how to use Winhiip.

2 - Download the Noobie Package and extract the INSTALL folder and the FREE_MCBOOT.ELF to your USB device's ROOT (means not inside any folder). You can look at the Noobie Guide by clicking the  User Guide tab above, if you need more info.

On the PS2:

  1. Insert the HDD, the USB device, the HDL or HDA disc and a PS2 memory Card into the console and turn it on.
  2. Run the uLaunchELF program from the Games List
  3. From the uLaunchELF screen (ignore the LAUNCHELF.CNF error message) press the O button to go into the FileBrowser menu
  4. Select the mass: option, as thats your USB device
  5. From the next screen, select the FREE_MCBOOT.ELF and press O button to execute it.

You should now be looking at the FMCB installer screen, so refer to the User Guides for install options.
