This scene has really taken off and I am glad I found such a helpful community. Almost everything that shows up in Google is a scam asking to fill out surveys.
I've owned the ps3 since the day it came out but back then when I wanted to mod it there were simply too many hoops to jump through. I appreciate all the hard work that is going into moving this scene forward.
Great forums & info here, I have been lurking awhile but had to register as my interest in PS3 mods & CFW is growing.
I attached a jpeg of my humble setup; I have a newer PS3 Slim 160GB that I upgraded to 500GB and I have an original PS3 "Fat" 60GB (CECHA01) that I put the 160GB slim drive into. I use the Slim for new games & online stuff and the Fat really only for PS2 games.
I would however love to get some retro emulators on the old beast PS3 phatty which is why I have been researching the CFW & hacking side of things lately. I have a great deal to learn but I love gaming and all things tech... I have been playing forever, still have my NES I got for Christmas of '86 and am a musician/studio engineer by trade so I have somewhat of a grasp on the technical side of things. Well, I hope so...
