    Ah, but it works the other way around. See, as freedvdboot doesn´t exploit the PS1 compatibility layer as freeMCboot does to boot, theoretically one could finally write an ELF loader for PS2 to natively load PS1 games without the hassle of tricking the whole hardware to think it´s playing a PS2 game.

    Now this could be interesting.

    Doesn't mucommander support SMB1 without having to do anything at the OS level?

    Any additional info you can provide like what non stealth modchip I could use? I did not know you could use a PS1 modchip in a PS2 for PS1 games and that would be far easier for me to install then installing a whole modbo chip just for PS1 games.

    Amazing that this is such a similar entrypoint to the Dreamcast mil-CD one - imagine if this didn't take 19 years to find. Is it possible to unlock the DVD drive with this? I wonder, if some fiddling of the commercial game ISOs, you could get them to boot.

    Opening post already shows that commercial games work with this.

    You can, dude who found the exploit did it with shadow of the colossus as a concept.

    Worked 100% perfectly fine.

    Just waiting for someone to make a patched tool for Iso's now that and more exploits for further drive firmwares.

    Only for client. I don't see any way to start a server with this.

    I think you are mixing it up with the independence exploit that exploited the PS1 compatibility layer, freemcboot exploits the PS2 update mechanism.

    Using PS2 homebrew to load PS1 games from USB or Ethernet has some technical hurdles to overcome that FreeDVDBoot does nothing to address.

    Ain´t gonna work PS2s in PS1 mode is like a Nintendo DS playing GBA games. They are seperated.
    And get a psx if you want to play those games.

    Has anyone tested this on the PS2s that were "games only"?

    Nice because I don't have a modchip. Now I just need the PS2.

    Got a solution to this. I set up an Ubuntu VM that runs the SMB1 share. Whenever I want to play a game, I'll run the VM. Not ideal but certainly beats having SMB1 running all the time on my Windows machine.

    Another option might be to buy a cheap NAS of some kind, use an old/cheap computer, etc. And plug it directly into the PS2.

    Not ideal but then at least you din’t have to mess around with VMs, etc.

    Which PS2 were game only? Except the TEST units that didn't have DVD player functionality, because Sony would have had to pay a licensing fee based on a percentage of the selling price, this exploit won't work on TEST consoles as they can't run the DVD player.

    Well sorta. The PS1 GPU is emulated with the EE+GS on the PS2 and the CPU is the IOP. Some stuff changes when going into PS1 mode, but as far as I know PS1DRV hasn't been reverse engineered to document what all the registers do. It's possible that a solution like nintendont is possible, where gamecube games run on the wii despite there being differences.

    Obviously it hasn't been done yet, but whether it's theoretically possible and what the compatibility rate could be if it could is an unknown. Being able to play PS1 backups on ethernet using a PS2 would be da bomb though.

    So I read up on everything.
    https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/storage-at-microsoft/stop-using-smb1/ba-p/425858

    Someone sets up my new corporate network today with it. Their family will never find the body and someone that useless is unlikely to be missed anyway. Some legacy reason (and that ought to be a business critical super expensive/nigh impossible to replace fancy printer/scanner, CNC machine or the like) better be justified as anything, and most likely will be airgapped and then some if at all possible.

    For the average person around here that mostly just has read only, maybe write in one directory, shares for their home and devices on it to watch films on another computer or something. Seeing less of an issue.

    I've read some people raise alarms about the hidden "administrative shares" that are enabled by default and make the entire hard drive available.
