If you google Free McBoot. You will find details on how to softmod your PS2. You have to rip the game to your PC with imgBurn. Then use Apache v1.1 to swap the driving.elf for uLaunch.elf. You have to rename the uLaunch.elf to driving.elf before swapping it. You then resize it. Then burn it off. Play the first level (action.elf) on the retail disc. Then save it and return to the main menu. Do the swap trick with your homemade tool. It will make a horrible spinning/scratching sound. You risk damaging your PS2 DVD drive and the game. Now load level 2 (driving.elf). Instead of level 2 running, uLaunch will run. You then plug in a USB drive with the Free McBoot installer on it. Then use uLaunch to run the installer.
in Play Station2 on TV i can't see this option PRECIOUS CARGO, i stuck at this part. (i know how to remove orignal 007 disc & i know how to put burnt disc).
but how to see this option PRECIOUS CARGO, when i put orignal 007 Disc.
This must be one of the hardest ways to mod a PS2. Not sure what you mean by Precious cargo. Guess thats the name of the second level. Was a long time ago that i done mine. I will try to find my disk then get back to you. You have to play the first level. Save it. Return to the menu. Swap the disc. Then load level 2.
I found my disc. You must play Trouble in paradise first. Then swap the disc for your modded one. Then select Precious cargo. You can't select Precious cargo until you have done Trouble in paradise. uLaunch should run. You need to have the Free McBoot installer on a USB drive, ready for when uLaunch runs. When you can see uLaunch on screen. Press the o button (circle) to select the browser. Then scroll down to mass. Press the o button to open your USB drive. Find the Free McBoot installer. Then press the o button to run it.

Glad to hear that you finally got Free Mcboot installed to your PS2 memory card. The easiest way to play backups, is from DVD. First rip your retail disc to your PC with imgBurn. Then patch the disc with ESR Disc patcher v0.24a. Then burn the disc with imgBurn. CDs will have to be rebuilt into DVDs before patching.
I just noticed that you have an old noob package.
Get the latest one from PSX scene. Run uLaunch from the PS2 menu, then install in on another card. I use Free McBoot 1.8b. Patched discs will auto run and It comes with Open PS2 loader instead of HD Loader.
