tonyhax using FreePSXBoot

tonyhax supports being launched on compatible consoles using the FreePSXBoot exploit developed by brad-lin.


This method requires an entire memory card for itself, and thus:

If you want to go this route, you’ll need to flash the memory card using one of the images available at freepsxboot/, depending on your console’s BIOS version:

Model BIOS version
SCPH-1001 v2.2
SCPH-1002 v2.0, v2.1 or v2.2
SCPH-3500 v2.1
SCPH-5001 v3.0
SCPH-5501 v3.0
SCPH-5502 v3.0
SCPH-5503 v3.0
SCPH-5903 v2.2
SCPH-7001 v4.1
SCPH-7002 v4.1
SCPH-7501 v4.1
SCPH-7502 v4.1
SCPH-9001 v4.1
SCPH-9002 v4.1
SCPH-101 v4.4 or v4.5
SCPH-102 v4.4 or v4.5


  1. Turn on the console with the memory card with FreePSXBoot installed on the first slot and the disc tray open.
  2. Once you reach the console’s BIOS, select the memory card manager and click on it.

The screen should turn orange, and after a while tonyhax should boot.
