US 60 GB / Swap Magic 3.6+
usbld .1

woo FREAKING hoo!
ico PAL

i finally got it to work! the difference was using usbld **VERSION 0.1** and doing the virtual memory card install. it could possibly be the fact that I am now using a different USBD.IRX compared to the one in 0.2b (imbedded). but yeah, this means that games that may not have worked before may work now.

so it may be that the PAL PS3 users who got ICO working on their systems was due from them using USBLD 0.2 that still required a virtual memory card install.

I hope this helps other users having problems or different compatibility problems.

i used the tutorial by idone many thanks to idone and and another user here who posted that some games would black screen for him on 0.2b but load fine on an older version (sorry, I can't find the post, but i do appreciate it if you happen to read this).

SM is very picky with usb devices. is the hdd formated to FAT32? If you do have a file called SMBOOT1.ELF in the SWAPMAGIC folder on the root of your usb and it freezes when up+L2, then it's definately a usb problem.

if your puting stuff on the virtual memory card then it reboots format your usb device and put files back on it see if that stops the freezing
