    Basically, you need an extra device.

    Also, your PS3 needs to be hackable in the first place. Pretty much any PS3 bought new this year is screwed. If you have a phat model, or an older slim you're in luck. Google the models and check yours.

    Don't forget it has to have had OFW 3.55 or lower when it was brand-new as well.

    My memory is hazy and my will to search is weak.
    Anybody want to throw me a link to the best dongle (or whatever) available? I'm literally just bit the bullet when I saw this thread, I'm hacking this thing before it gathers any more dust!
