Some 9xxxx do, some not. If your console doesn't accept updates, FMCB will not work. FreeDVDBoot can be used to install FMBC to a memory card or as an alternative way of starting homebrew.

There is PS2 Fortuna Project if you want an exploit on Memory Card instead of DVD. It is a bit less comfortable than FMCB but works on ALL PS2 consoles.


Good luck and have fun!

Just because I saw it on aliexpress recently and wondered what it was...

This chinese (?) seller says: Yes. ;)

Disclosure: I have no other information on what would allow or prevent FMCB to work on those consoles.
its one of those models where the update through memcard is dissabled and i forgot to mention i already got a fmcb memcard and a working phat 300xx with fhhdb this just a project to kill some time

I'm glad you asked!

Here's what we did this week:
We remade the interface from scratch.
Here it is with the default theme:

And here it is with an animated / dynamic theme:

Yes, everyone with access to it...
where to get the leaked version?
I don't advise you to hunt for the leaked versions. The one from 2018 is stable but forced to Spanish. The one from 2019 (the one that was leaked on a Russian website) is risky and should not be used by anyone since it plays a bit with your console's NVM.

thanks for the little insight on the current status it amazes me what is possible on this 20 yr old little machine
By the way, you can simply use FunTuna in your SCPH-900XX:

Check our other resources... You might find some interesting stuff:

OSDSYS Launcher requires you to install an OSDSYS update for it to launch. It also requires you to have an entry point.
The normal FMCB installs as OSDSYS update so, you need to install FMCB, then launch OSDSYS Launcher via (Open/Fun/For)-tuna.

All that mess is not needed since FunTuna exists.
OSDSYS Launcher nowadays should only be considered "something that was useful years ago".

with HWC-odsys launcher its possible. Install and FunTuna with FreeDVDBoot exploits uLE. After that download HWC-ODSYS launcher. In uLE Go to mc?:BOOT (Depending which slot are the card in that you installed FunTuna on), here press r1 on BOOT.elf delete BOOT.elf and copy The odsys launcher BOOT.elf To this folder. After that just reboot the console. After rebooot go to browser, here go to the 1st memory card. You will see here an invisible icon. Got to it and press x after that just go back and you will see fmcb.
