    Put simply, is it possible?

    I can't get a PS3 online due to having no internet at home, so my best bet is downloading them on my PC at the library. But, is this possible? Can I download them by PC, shove 'em on a USB stick and install them on the PC? No doubt I could download them, as everything is on the internet somewhere. But, as you've guessed by now, I don't know if they'd work on the PS3.

    By downloads, I mean
    Game updates
    Maybe other updates as well.

    You can do that with firmware updates, I'm not sure about game updates. I suppose if you could find the update file for the specific game online, you might be able to copy it over from the USB stick into the game data directory. But I've never tried that.

    Don't think you can. PS3 game updates come as .pkg files, so you'd need some way of installing .pkg files, which isn't available without using a CFW.

    If you have a jailbroken ps3 you can do this. You will need to provide a little bit of info on your setup.

    You would probably have to backup a ps3 and restore that backup to yours, if possible.
