Here is the SUPER EASY method to run USB Loader.
1. Create a folder on a compatible USB Device (ie: PSP) called SWAPMAGIC.
2. Place the USBLD_0.2b.elf file (DOWNLOAD HERE: http://www.haxnetwork.net/downloads.php?do=file&id=247) in this folder and rename it SMBOOT0.elf

4. Load Swap Magic with the USB Device in the FIRST USB port.
5. Press UP and L1 and USB Loader should boot.
6. Press X for a PAL console or O for a NTSC console

nice work Pirate keep them tuts coming :)
what does 3.6+ mean? and i thought 3.8 wouldnt work?
How does this compare for loading speed? Since the PS3 has USB 2.0 ports, does this make use of the extra transfer rate? USBAdvance was pretty sad in comparison to disc loading on the PS2, let alone HDLoader.
but on ps3 60 pal work?
doesnt it say above it wont work on a 60 GIG Pal ps3? then why ask?
thanks for the tutorial just waiting for pal version to release
