    I'm planning to buy a ps3 and it will propably be a used older model...something like the first models that came around...the ones that could play ps2 games.

    basically...what do I need to know about hacking a ps3?
    I've been able to hack and play backup disks on a wii without any major problems but it seems that hacking a ps3 would be harder and more complicated to do.

    I've gone through multiman's guide on this forum about hacking a ps3 but some questions pop to mind.
    what equipment will I need to hack a ps3?
    do I just download the files he says,put it on a usb stick,and install it on the ps3?
    he says to load the files using a custom firmware or a dongle?where can I find that?
    by using multiman's guide to the letter,will I be able to play any backup disks through the blu ray and istall them on an external hard drive so I can run them off there?
    will I also be able to watch movies from the same external drive connected to the ps3?

    thanks for any answers and please keep in mind that I'm completely and total noob when it comes to this matter :)
