#1 - you just put the new HDD in, start the PS3 and follow the instruction on screen

#2 - I answered that in one of your last threads and via PM (including links to the needed files)
USB drive (stick or hdd) formatted with FAT32 --> [PS3] (folder) --> [UPDATE] (folder) --> PS3UPDAT.PUP (file)
^exactly like this, that means no lower case "ps3" or "update" folder and no "PS3UPDATE.PUP" file

#3 - you rip them yourself from your game disc via MultiMan or you FTP or copy them to your HDD (internal or external). Paths & foldernames are also in my pics from those older threads & PMs.

(#4) apps - MultiMan & Rebug Toolbox

(#5) cheats - get "PS3Tools", it's a collection of several tools including "PS3 Cheats Editor" (I already sent you that via PM a few days ago)




pick a game, press right mouse button and choose "save as package .pkg", then install that cheat file on your PS3
