    Howdy chaps and chapesses, I'm getting a fat PS3 tomorrow and wondered where to start with hacking it. It seems there is a ton of info but Im not sure what is up to date or not. Do I need to upgrade FW to the latest from Sony? Which is the better FW to hack? What progs do I need to install once hacked.

    Mainly want it for PS1,2,3 games and maybe emulators (is there an original xbox emu for it?). Not bothered about going online at all. Got a 2TB lappy drive to go into it.


    Also, after modding, is it possible to use an Xbox 360 controller on it?


    Cheers.


    PS Hacked wii and original xbox (soft and hard modded).

    If you are bellow 3.55 u can install CFW like Rogero, Cobra, Rebug...
    Otherwise go to last update and install the last 4.84 HFW,
    And yes, u cant use xbox controller on ps3 unless there are some adapters which are expensive to play with xbox on ps3 ams vice versa

    There's not really a original Xbox emulator anywhere even on PC that runs games well so no.

    Yeh I didn't think, there would be.

    Is the HDD still tied to 1TB when jailbroken or can I install a 2TB?
