    im using the gamma loader 0.3

    i downgrade to 3.2 U (was on 3.4U)

    my question is, can i get PAL backups and play without worrying it bricks the system?

    do i need to patch anything i download with "PAL" on their filename?

    oh also what happen for jap games?

    Starfall can allow you to skip disk updates automatically.

    FYI the backup loader disables updates. you don't have to worry about updates when you run games through it.... the rebooter may be another matter.

    thanks all for the help
    yes also thanks for that info i didnt knew the loader and starfall did that on my console.

    what you mean the rebooter?

    so you guys mean i can download a PAL game(or Japanese), burn iso, and just...play it?

    if your tv supports the video mode yes, if not youll have to force the video mode (if its supported) or change the video region with one of the available programs.
    Rebooter is part of the gamma loader that makes games load from the disc channel

    If your TV supports PAL, you don't need a patch for NTSC or force mode.

    But you'll have to force NTSC.

    Some games simply aren't compatible with certain forced modes.
