PlayStation 3 is Sony's third home console that was once thought to be unhackable...

Hidden Firmware Info

Go to Settings -> System Settings -> System Information, hold L1 + R1 + Left + Square, then release them and immediately press and hold Start.

Revisional Differences

In firmware versions before v3.00, the startup screen uses an orchestral tuning sound with the words "Sony Computer Entertainment" on it. This was replaced with a different tune along with a new startup, featuring the "PS" logo and the new "PlayStation 3" logo in firmware v3.00 and above. Also during game boot, in firmware versions before v3.00, you are greeted with a "PlayStation 3" splash screen, featuring the Sam Raimi Spider-Man style font. This was removed in firmware versions after v3.00 and instead boots directly into the game.

Pre-v3.00 v3.00 and Above

OtherOS

Hmmm...
To do:
Upload some images, maybe a video showing it in action?

Early PlayStation 3 consoles had the option to install other operating systems, such as Linux or FreeBSD. This feature was removed in later models and older models running firmware v3.21.
