How To: Softmod a PS2

Softmod a PS2

In this hacker's how-to, you'll learn how to softmod your old Playstation 2 to enable you to run third party software and how to use CogSwapLoader and HDLoader to backup your PS2 games and play them either from a burned DVD or off your hard drive. This will let you hack the PS2 to play pirated games. Remember, pirating software is illegal! This will let you unlock your PS2 to play games if you copy them from somewhere else.

To softmod your PS2, you'll need the following:

a standard-size Playstation 2;
a Playstation 1 game;
CodeBreaker (version 8 or higher) or Action Replay Max;
a USB Thumb Drive; and
a PS2 Memory Card.
