    Hello! I have modded my ps3 slim with 3.55 kmeaw cfw and multiman and everything. I'm wondering if I upgrade to a larger hard drive using the ps3 backup utility, will my ps3 still be modded or will I have to go through the steps again?

    Upgrading requires the same or higher level of FW on the console. I'd say you're ready to go.

    System files are stored on flash memory (NAND/NOR), not on your HDD.

    You're fine to swap out your HDD's.

    Actually a part of the HDD is used for system files. Otherwise you wouldn't have to have the current or newer firmware available when upgrading/changing your HDD. The firmware number and part of the firmware are on the NAND/NOR, but not the whole system (not enough space).
