    Free MCBoot Install Service

    What is Free MCBoot? (Also referred to as FMCB.) It is a softmod of sorts, that allows you to play disc "backups" on your PS2, launch Homebrew, and even USB Load games. There's a tutorial located here. On how to install it yourself, but if you would like skip the hassle of opening up your PS2, we've got the solution. We'll install it on your memory card. For free, just cover shipping. We'll install ESR, a HDD Loader, and a Homebrew launcher. Below is a list of users willing to install it. Just send them a PM, and they'll set it up. (Hopefully we can get a nice list of users, located in various locations to cut down on shipping costs.

    Before anyone asks. I know Fudge personally so I added him to the list. He's trustworthy. I'm not going to add someone with no reputation to the list due to the possibility of them stealing someones memory card, when they ship it to them.

    Oh... this'd be a nice way for me to make some money without a job... But as you said, I have no reputation, and this is a free service. Once I get a job and do more on GBAtemp, I might join as a hobby.

    I'd be willing to do the same.

    I've also made a updated FMCB guide in the other consoles FAQ/Guide section if anyone feels they can do this on there own.

    I've done it for a couple of people locally, but damned if I'd want to do it for more people. Plus, obviously an unknown person. Pity though, this list needs people outside the US.

    I would do it for free too, if you can gameshare a PS3 game with me haha. You would have to cover shipping though. I live in New York City.

    Agreed, the list can't just be USA only.

    As soon as some trustworthy non-US people want to help out, I'd be glad to update the list. Until then.

    Can MCBoot be installed via SwapMagic or something? The PS2 downstairs uses SwapMagic (but at the same time I never get to use it because it's downstairs only ;_;) and I'll be willing to if it can.
    Well people need to say they're willing to do it first obviously.

    Though only US people so far are saying anything.


    EDIT: Yes it can Prowler.

    Not a bad idea, I added it to the list.

    @prowler_ Shall I put you down, as a installer?

    Just some more proof, to disprove any suspicion. Just installed FMCB on his two memory cards.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    We need some non-US people.

    Well, this is basically non-profit. The guy who sent me his two memory cards, was nice enough to give me some money. I never asked, or begged for money in return. From what I saw you post, you wanted something in return. If that was a joke, fair enough, XD I'll add you on.

    I may be willing to sell people PS2 memory cards with Free MCBoot installed on them right away. Of course, this would cost money. Some money for me to buy the memory card, and money to ship it out... Any thoughts?

    This would be great for people like me. Well, like how I was couple months ago. Just starting up the whole PS2 stuff, found a PS2 that only had the video and power cables, had to buy a controller and a memory card, and for the longest time, didn't have the game needed to soft mod.

    Not a bad idea. At some places, PS2 memory cards are quite hard to find. Sounds pretty good. I'll have to add that in the first post, if you'd like to do so.

    People outside the US should also sign up for this =) The feeling to help someone knowing they be happy for it is awesome.
