    I'm thinking about getting a PS3 so I can mod. I have experience doing this with my xbox 360. Is there a hack available for the ps3 that allows playing of backups from an external hard drive? If so, what are the limitations. I see there is a guide in the sticky, but not sure of the homebrew that it allows also allows for the backup on an external feature. Also, what tools are needed for this? Thanks.

    That sticky is still relevant, not much has changed from then to now. After you have cfw on the ps3 get a backup manager (I recommend multiMAN) any of them will run game from external hdd.

    1) You must be on firmware version 3.55 If you are higher then you have to downgrade using a flasher
    2) As stated the guide is still OK.
    3) To play backups you need to install the latest version of multiman and bdemu2.pkg
    4) Yes it can play most games from external hdd. Some games will not run from external and have to be on internal.
    5) NOTE: Games will still require the game data to be installed. Luckily a dev released a new app which allows game data to be installed on external as well

    No currently you cannot play online with a cfw console on psn server.
    You can however use Xlink Kai in order to play online games via LAN settings

    So far only with the True Blue dongle and their cfw.
