Softmod PS2 (software firmware) is called Free McBoot. This method allows you to run games and third-party programs downloaded from the Internet: players, emulators etc. It works on any console (with and without a chip).
Such firmware is recorded to a memory card, which the prefix reads, starting Free McBoot every time it is turned on.
