    I have a JTAG'd 360 with a 1TB drive on it, and I've barely used half of it. Is it possible, once I get this PS3 re-flowed (YLOD), and get a jailbreaking device (probably a TI84+) can I run games off of this external 1TB drive formatted to FAT32?

    although i dont have my ps3 setup, as long as the jtag'd box isnt using the drive as an internal drive (i have one like this), and its just used as an external drive connected via usb, it should be fine.
    if its not, reformatted to fat32 will allow you to play SOME games off of the external hdd... view compatibility chart either way.

    ps; you could if you just want to connect to ps3 only, remove the internal drive and run a sata cable out of the slot, and connect external power to the drive and run the ps3 with the 1tb hdd

    Yeah I'm just using the 1TB on my JTAG external only to store games, with a 60GB internal for DLC and XBLA (which I ironically took out of this PS3).
