i was using the knife method using a feeler gauge to move the white pin across for a very short time untill i saw that Charlie and Dust2Dust had repeatedly warned that doing so could ruin your ps2, and they do know what they are talking about.
If you can afford it they recommend either origa or m clone.
Which as i speak as of today has been successfully done for me!!!
However here's my experience with the knife ar2 method.
Ar2 v2 disk one is booting ps2 games ,disk two is psxps1 games.
Here's what i did for ps2 cdr only based games.
Boot up with ar2 disk 2 hardware piece in place.
Select start game.
Select without codes.
Open tray with knife/feeler gauge.
Swap ar2 disk with back up copy.
manually close tray and move the white pin back to original posistion, sometimes the momentum of pushing the tray in will do this for you.
Press x and the game would boot.
This was on a unchipped v4 ps2 which as i said has now undergone a facelift.
I didn't have time to try this with dvd back ups or rips so i don't know about them.
