Now you can play PS2 backups without mod chip or boot discs
Free McBoot is a method of running homebrew applications directly off a Memory Card as a stand alone loader. No boot discs or modchips are required once installed. You will however need to have a method to install FMCB to the MC. This guide assumes you have a method to install already, if not read thru the How-to guides and return when ready to install FMCB.
