New User: How to access system files?
I'm a new PS3 user and don't know anything about the PS3 mod/homebrew/hacking/etc scene. But I am a professional programmer though (just not PS3) so I do know my way around computers, I'm just new to PS3 hacking.
I want to perform this hack (sort titles alphabetically) (this BB won't let me post a URL, so I had to obfuscate it):
psx-scene [DOT] com [SLASH] forums [SLASH] content [SLASH] tut-alphabetically-order-games-xmb-1816
But I have no idea what the proper way is to access the system files in the first place. Do I need to jailbreak the system? (if so, how?) Or do I just take out the PS3's hard drive and connect it to a computer? (if so, what file system does it use?) Or something else? Does any of this risk a PSN ban? (If so, how to avoid it?)
