Hello all. So i recently installed homebrew successfully on my vWii and am loving it. It has opened my eyes to the whole homebrew scene and want to get further into it with my next step being my Playstation 3. So after some research i have found not any normal PS3 can be installed with homebrew only the PS3 2000 Slims or the FAT are working with CFW and must be upgraded to 3.55 OFW before any modding can commence. SOOOO i delved into my nearby pawn shops with no luck on finding a unit that matched either of these requirements so i resulted to eBay and now am waiting for my 3.55 Slim to arrive in the mail. In the meantime I want to gather as much information and would like to get as much feedback as possible before i begin my hacking process. My first and major question is, what is the best CFW (Rebug, Cobra,Dakrnet, Ferrox ETC). Here's a list of things i would like to do. -Play PS3 Backups from an External HDD -Play PS2 Backups from an External HDD -Play Ps1 Backups from an External HDD My Second Question is What loader (like Multimann) is the best and runs games without hiccups and is most recently updated and receives constant updates? My Third Quesiton is How do i obtain the Artwork for the games in Multiman or Irishman? Are they automatically put on there? My Fourth question, is there a possible way to play ps1/ps2 games from a nice library assortment like Multimann or are these 2 consoles both left in obscurity and stuck with a generic listing of the games with no artwork. My Fifth Question Do i need a ps3 game inside the unit at all times to run games from Multimann or Irishman? My Sixth Question is, If i played Dark Souls/DS2 with the online functionality active is there a major chance of IP/PSN ban? Is it worth it? Also any constructive feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
