    I'm sure this has been asked a million times before, but I couldnt find it. Is it possible through CFW to change the region of a PS3 so my USA model can play Aussie BR, DVD and PS1 games

    This has NOT been asked a million time. This can be achieved with the cobra usb dongle.

    Well... you need to install their CFW and then plug it in.Your PS3 will be region free for BR-DVD-PS1.
    You can also run everything from your hard drive but who would want to do that /sarcasm

    There's also a homebrew which let you change DVD/Bluray region.
    I'll post it here when I find it (it's on my HDD at home, and I'm at work :P)

    I also remember I made a post in the PS3 hacking forum, you can find it with a search.

    It's a memory patch, and is automatically disabled on reboot.
    It's cleaner than installing the dongle's private firmware.

    The ps3 is region free for games only. Blu-ray and DVD are still region locked.
