As long as the cheat disk image is ESR Patched,
Load the patched cheat disk and the ESR trick is in play.
Select Cheats
Swap disks with another ESR patched Game
Play...

As far as can figure out, this should work.

I used this method to make HDLoader 0.8c ESR patched, read copies for import long ago

It's generally easier to run a Codebreaker/Gameshark ELF from FMCB, Codebreaker has a file called CB_Launcher.elf, which executes from Codebreaker, after you start a game. If you rename ESR.elf to CB_Launcher.elf, it will launch into ESR from Codebreaker, and you then start a patched game.

P.S ~ GS/Codebreaker will not launch from the main menu until the disc tray is closed, kinda weird, but it's a thing.

^ this, only other thing i can add is that cheats will usually only work with saved game, you cant activate cheat on CB/GS, then boot game, then go to new game option, you have to have any save file of game you are going to cheat.

^ i use this one.

Just trow it on USB flash, load it from uLaunchELF and follow uploaders instructions, it works on ESR games no problems.
In case of troubles check comments, all solutions are there.

Odd. I've had no trouble with new games. I usually only ever used it for Gungrave and shoot-em-up games. Granted, it has been quite some time since I've used CB or ESR since getting my Modbo.

Well, dint use it that much to, but in those few games i did it wont work on new game option . I guess it depends on game . In shooters it modify ammo, lives and such, but in RPG for example it modify much more, like character look, stats, abilities and such . So you first must create character, save it and then modify it, unlike in shoot-em-up games where ship/character is already created and cant be modified .
