How to boot DVD-R (only) with AR2/GS2 V2x

Thanks to Nightstalker for this method!

Insert AR2/GS2
Power down console, wait 5 sec, and restart console by pressing and holding reset. (Dont let go)
After GS2 completely loads, swap with original dvd game.(high TOC)
Wait about 15 sec and select Gameshark codes (or ar2 codes) and turn on or off any code on any game.
Press start, select with codes and press x to load game.
You will see a black screen saying "updating codes please wait" at this time release the reset button, tray will eject, swap with backup, tray closes and game loads.
