There is more than one model of Fat PS2. The last types had a number SCPH-5xxxx. For those models → MechaPwn – permanent modification –
Older models up to SCPH-3xxxx cannot use MechaPwn, but if you have a NTSC-U or PAL (not NTSC-J) console and a compatible game, try tonyhax. – tedious, has to be repeated on each boot –

Good luck and have fun!

Tonyhax then. It is not a physical modification, not even a permanent software modification. Gone after a power cycle (or even the reset button).

In outline form:
Start legit PS1 game with exploit file on PS1 memory card, trigger exploit, tonyhax comes up and tells you to remove legit game and insert backup.

FreeMcBoot isn't required for this (only for preparing the PS1 memory card).

Yep. Tonyhax works. (If your PS2s DVD laser is still up to the task of reading PS1 games. :) )

Also Popstarter (Isos from USB (or HDD, I've the USB method set up), via an emulator). But compatibility for Popstarter on PS2 is way lower. (It doesnt use the official Sony backcompatibility layer.)
