    Anyone has a PS3 and is into the modding of it?
    Is it possible to to it in a easy way and load backup games with USB?

    Thank you

    Used to have one back in the days. There are plenty of indepth tutorials on google. The complexity level of unlocking your PS3 will depend on your model number. If you got a newer one, soldering might be involved.

    No, if you can downgrade the console to 3.55 then it can be hacked. There are then modified firmwares up to (I believe) 4.55 so you can play the latest games. It's just firmware 3.55 and below that has the exploit to enable the hacking. Once hacked you can do so much more with your PS3.

    I have 3 PS3's at home, 2 of them are stock firmware and 1 is modded. I use the stock models for gaming and the modded one to test some new games and as a media centre due to its capabilities. The modded console is currently on firmware 4.46 but a hacked version.

    I'll dig out some of my old resources and send you some info.
