I have a 1TB external harddrive. Do I just copy the CFW file onto it, plug it into my PS3, and just copy it into the PS3? That would be a breath of fresh air if that's all I have to do.

My advice would be stay on 3.55 if you want homebrew/warez, and update if you *really* have to play online. Just remember, it's a one-way street for now, and as console die off, CFW PS3s are getting more scarce. But the most important thing, and I cannot stress this enough: DON'T buy a true blue dongle. The people behind that are slimey opportunistic sh*tbags who are killing this scene.
I think I'll just buy a separate PS3 if that's the case. And just use it for all my online needs.
