Default Any PS3 hackers here?

All the time I spent messing with my 360's this week got me thinking about getting a couple PS3's to play with. I don't know crap about them but it looks like you can hack them to play backups off an external HD just by throwing some code on a USB key and plugging it in. Is that all there is to it? Safe to plug into the internets after doing that? Any thing I should know about before I run to the pawnshop/CL to buy two PS3 Slims and a couple 1GB USB keys?

AFAIK the only way to reflash the firmware to do stuff like gamesave swap/mod/ect is to have the old update from like last year.

I'll assume that is true but I have seen some stuff talking about "downgraders". No idea if this is how you get them back to that state.

FWIW, I have a friend with a PS3 (not at all a hardcore gamer, not really sure what he even bought it for - maybe just for the blueray player) and he said a recent update pretty much trashed the console. I set him up to use it as a media station to watch AVIs and he has reported back that he's getting horrible lag since the last upgrade.

Lets not derail the topic with questions about "Why?" rather than "How?"

I'm interested in this as well, however with the latest update I'm not sure how easy it is anymore. I may or may not have the security codes saved on a jump drive that got geohot in trouble...

In all honestly, I'm sure you greatly enjoy tinkering with them, I can completely understand. I actually have an original xbox with an 80gig in it, chipped to run off burned games, dashboard, etc. Just seems with the 360 they built in all the functions I could want, except the ability to steal games, which won't, as you've experienced, run online, which I greatly enjoy. But to each their own.
