News and Info from the Official Forum:
We're pleased to announce the release of HDD Explorer! HDD
Explorer is an application that allows you to boot homebrew
software from a hard disc drive(HDD) installed in your PS2.
It will work with either "official" Sony HDDs or
unofficial(ie "normal") HDDs. You WILL need the
HDD to be a newer make(ie don't try to put a HDD that's 8
years old in it) and recommended to be atleast 40 gigabytes.
You will need to upgrade to Flash v1.8 in order to use HDD
Explorer. Once installed, HDD Explorer can be booted by pressing
the Start button while starting the system(it takes about
15 seconds to boot HDD Explorer).
Bundled with HDD Explorer are a set of applications, including
PGEN Sega Genesis/Megadrive emulator by that l33t mofo Sjeep.
Read the readme.txt file included in the zip for more information,
EDIT: HDD Explorer will NOT work with SCPH 10000, SCPH 15000
or SCPH 18000 models, due to the difference in hardware with
EDIT AGAIN: The "configuration" menu has some settings
which you'll notice are disabled. That's because they are
currently unsupported by the flash. Some or all of these options
will be supported in the future, but which and when has yet
to be decided. DO NOT EXPECT OR DEMAND ANY OF THESE OPTIONS.
