AetherSX2 is an Android emulator for the PS Two console, enabling users to play games that they have personally dumped from discs onto their portable devices. You can download AetherSX2 v1.5-4248.
To operate, a mandatory BIOS image must be used, ideally dumped from the user’s own console using a homebrew application like biosdrain.
The emulator recommends a high-end device, specifically a Snapdragon 845-equivalent device with at least 4 large cores (Cortex-A75 level, scoring 500 or more in single-core Geekbench 5).
The app boasts several features, including system simulation, support for OpenGL, Vulkan, and software rendering, upscaling games to 1080p and beyond, widescreen patches for games lacking native support, save states, touchscreen and Bluetooth controller compatibility, and the ability to load games from iso/chd/cso disc images with per-game settings customization.
It comes with disclaimers emphasizing the ethical use of the emulator—strictly for playing legally owned games dumped from discs using tools like ImgBurn. Users are advised to transfer the game files to their devices via USB after creating a .iso file.
