You have to buy it at the store, then make the download and agree with the installation.

there is no other way at the moment.

I've played around with the loader a lot, shifting from 0.1 to 0.2, but I didn't have a lot of luck running games, and 0.2b didn't recognize my external USB Western Digital. I have a 20 gb PS3 US launch console.

Here's my compatibly list:

Ratchet & Clank NTSC - Working
Kingdom Hearts PAL - Boots but I get black screen after I've clicked on new game, when it's suppose to show the intro FMV.

Odin Sphere NTSC - Not working
Tony Hawk's Skater Underground 2 PAL - Not working
Yakuza 2 NTSC - Not working
Metal Slug 3 - Not Working
Kingdom Hearts: Chain of memories NTSC - Not working

Hey, sorry if this has been asked before but...

Is the compatibility better on an EE equipped PS3 (US 60gb or 20gb) than a PS3 without the chip but with PS2 software emulation (PAL 60gb, US 80gb)?

I know that in non usb loading circumstances that answer would be yes but from what I've read the compatibility seems to be affected by the loader.

So is the EE equipped PS3 still the better option? Or are they evened out a bit?

Ya, but the external hard drive has to be compatible. If your using 0.2b, you might want to try 0.2 with different usbd.irx on the vmc. maybe you'll get lucky and find one that's compatible with your ext. hdd.
