So I've been thinking about softmodding my PS3 for a while now but I'm not really sure on some things as it definitely seems harder than the Wii softmod. I have a slim CECH-2500A 3.55 OFW so from everything I've read, it should be relatively easy to mod. I want to be able to rip my games to the HDD and play them from the HDD and still be able to buy stuff on PSN. Is this going to be possible? From what I've read, it may be hard to do so. I've seen there are different versions of softmodding or loaders(?), Rogero, Kmeaw, etc and so many guides. And I have some older but many newer that probably need 4.x firmware. What recommendations or advice can anyone offer? Thanks!
