    i have OFW 3.41, will http://gbatemp.net/t280915-ps3-softmod-guide this work as a softmod guide?
    and will a formatted omnitech mp3 player work for the usb drive? if not will a sd card usb reader work?
    or even my psp.

    Yeah, that guide will work, I'd also suggest to look at the multiman guide as well, also any of those would work (I had to use my psp actually because for some reason my Ps3 didn't agree with my flash drive.)

    It will work yes. And who doesnt have a USB drive? It isnt even costly. I doubt it will read from your PSP/MP3 player or any of it. You could give it a try, but make sure ur MP3 player is formatted to FAT32.

    External harddrives works if you have them in FAT32 format. And reparing pc normally doesnt require usb drive because repairing a pc usually involves replacing parts or formatting the computer which requires a cd or screwdriver etc...
