With a BC PS3 that is all you should need to buy.Quote:
So do I just need a Swap Magic Boot disc?
Well, you will need to have some storage medium for your games, which will either be some FAT32 formatted USB drive (much as you'd use with PS3 homebrews) or a working LAN so your PS3 can load games from a PC or NAS unit.Quote:
Since I never did it with a PS3 myself I'm not sure if there are any extra problems with it, but to whatever extent it truly emulates a PS2 it should work fine. I have heard that some of the newer homebrew PS2 USB drivers have some problems with PS3 compatibility, but that should not be a problem with all versions, and in any case I would rather aim for the LAN implementation myself, just like I do with my PS2 consoles.
One more thing you will need to do is to read up on the version of OPL you are to use (I'd recommend the latest 'stable' release of OPL v0.8), so that you can configure it correctly, which is something that most newcomers to it fail to do at first.
You will find extensive tutorials on OPL linked on every page in these forums, with a link near the top right corner of each page.

As yet we only have 3.56 spoofing, to prevent forced (or mistaken) firmware updates.
But there is NO CFW 3.56, and no safe way of spoofing it to trick PSN.
Even with perfect firmware ID spoofing and a smart proxy it would still never be entirely safe to log in to PSN, since we do not even KNOW all the details reported to Sony by each PS3 when it logs on. So it may be reporting all kinds of things that identifies your console as using homebrew software (all of which Sony classes as piracy tools).
So there exists NO perfectly safe method of connecting to PSN with any homebrew-using console.

works but no guarantees!
I've got a problem about that usb.cfg, I cannot get usbview.exe to work through Wine in ubuntu. It doesn't detect my HDD which is a WD.
Any solutions please?
@sioja - try typing lsusb into a terminal and see if that tells you what you need to know. Otherwise try "lsusb -v" for verbose info (I think), if it doesn't work just check the man page.
Does everyone still sign out and back in again when switching games when on PSN? Is there another method so I dont have to keep doing this? SFO editor?
